Your Display Name: Kmalti
Bug Description: Nature reigns kills creatures
Steps to Reproduce: I had a Birds of Plenty on the stack when in response the other player cast two nature reigns on the stack and was able to kill two of my pack raptors.
Frequency: When abused I guess
Additional Information:I was playing against ceratok when he did it so he might have more information on how to replicate it.

this may sound stupid, since you mentioned it in teh topic.
But since you seem to have played sapphire and wild

may these raptors have been replicas from a gambit?

I've had a test with Nature Reigns and AA Pack Raptors and I couldn't target them at any point.

I wish I took a screenshot now after it happened. I did forget to mention i did have a Pact of Life in play on my side. As for Replicators bandit I dont have that in my deck but I do have mimic and one of them was for sure made out of a mimic which i didnt consider.

Then that is why the one was able to be killed. Mimic creates an artifact replica. I suppose when that replica goes into play, the 4 copies created by it that go into your deck would also be replicas which would explain why the other was able to be killed.

I can't confirm the second part for sure, though.

Is that how it is supposed to work then? because I dont see anything on mimic saying it is an artifact copy it just says replica.
Thanks for your guys time!

I've not played mimic since it was changed, but I think it's meant to be Artifact colour instead of Wild and also say Robot Replica?

"Replica" is defined as a copy that becomes an artifact robot and loses its threshold requirement and Unique tag.

mimic does not create a replica currently,
maybe it should and does it in the background but the mimic troop looks exaclty like the original (except from socketed gems)

It does. There is just a large delay until the replica actually acts like a replica.

Yeah thanks guys. after testing it a lot today I finally found out that once a nature reigns or something similar is played then the art and description is changed to reflect it is a dinosaur robot replica. Super confusing though would have never found out why if it wasnt for your help!
