Shadow Elves

Shadow Elves Faction

The Shadow Elves delight in secrets and ancient knowledge. They seek to unravel the mystery of the summoning stones, and do not hesitate to use that knowledge in battle. They are as shadowy as the mysteries they explore, appearing out of nowhere under cover of darkness.

A Shadow Elf player likes to keep their opponent guessing, with units showing up in unexpected places. A Shadow Elf player reacts to their opponent’s actions and strikes with suddenness.

Thanks for the info KC. Never knew about that.

killercactus commented on Summon the Night:

Saint - you are reading the old version of Prince Elien's card. When the PE/TO set was re-released, Prince Elien and the Fire Drake's abilities were revised to read "instead of attacking" and not "instead of attacking normally". So, Fire Blast is indeed not an attack, and can hit non-adjacent units when Summon the Night is up. Same goes for Breath of Flame. Before that revision, Saint would've been correct.

SaintGup commented on Summon the Night:

Actually, it is attacking. The card reads 'instead of your normal attack', not 'instead of attacking'. It is still attacking but moreover, it takes place in the attack phase and the 'Summon the Night' event specifically mentions 'during the attack phase'. That's how it reads so that's how I play it. I am not saying you should do the same I am just saying how I play it.

Justantula commented on Summon the Night:

It's an "instead of attacking" effect like you said so Fire Blast isn't attacking.

SaintGup commented on Summon the Night:

I wouldn't play it like that. The reason being is that Summon the Night reads 'During that opponent's next Attack Phase, that opponent's units cannot attack cards they aren't adjacent to'. Prince Elien still attacks in the Attack Phase but doesn't attack normally and needs straight line sighting. Thematically speaking, this would not be possible during the darkness. Burn or Greater burn would be usable as it is not used during the attack phase.

Justantula commented on Summon the Night:

You are correct.

tylorlilley commented on Summon the Night:

Am I correct in assuming that if I use this card my opponent can still damage my units from afar with things like Prince Elien's Fire Blast ability? I think so because this card refers to attacks specifically and things like Fire Blast usually say "instead of attacking."

Justantula commented on Blade Master:

Splitting hairs here but Shikwa has Swift Shot, not Swift Strike. Same thing :p

Hilgendwarf commented on Blade Master:

Shikwa also has this ability.

TheDemagogue commented on Blade Master:

Swift Strike is an evnt card of the cave goblins. Each time it only uses 1 attack.
