If you pay 4 Blood, both parts will resolve, so a player with a LWS token might take 10, ONLY IF they are also the strongest foe. If that player is not the strongest foe, they take 7.
Ok what you say about card "INFLAMERATING"
The player with the Standee takes 4 damage. If no Living Wizard has the Standee all players take 4 damage. Pay 6 blood: The player with the Standee takes 8 damage, and then the players to her left and right each take 4 damage.
How max damage can take player with Standee, If player who play card pay 6 blood?
12 or 8?
I know about word "instead" in cards Griz Glowball's and The Flaming Prince's for example.
That cards gives 3 and 5 damage with blood.
Its normal damage for one card.
But а cards RAW-HYDRAS and INFLAMERATING can give 10 and 12 damage with blood.
Its very strong damage only for one card.
If the cards RAW-HYDRAS and INFLAMERATING had the word "instead", they would give 7 and 8 damage respectively.
It would be optimally for the game balance.
Maybe that cards should have been word "instead" initially? Or it is made specially?
What you think about it?
Thanks for answers.
I think it is not so easy to collect 6 Blood, so you better have a good payout for spending that much Blood!
Those cards never used "instead." They have high Blood costs so that they are not usable at will.
