Re: AotP Question Dump

@Rathburn no, you can use the spells anywhere on anyone, except where noted on the cards.

One thing, I am not 100% sure on is the Cryptolith scaling rules. They state:
Quote:
If you are standing on a space that is adjacent to a cryptolith, you may choose to scale it to go to the top space. When you scale a cryptolith, you count four spaces to get to the top.
My question is, if the base of the cryptolith is on a hex higher than the hex you are on (whether one hex height, or up to one less than your figure's height), do you have to count extra movement to climb, or is it set at exactly 4 move points as long as you are considered engaged/adjacent to the cryptolith. I am leaning to going what the rules say and not what they don't, meaning it is always exactly 4 spaces, even if you are the Eldrazi Ruiner, and the cryptolith is on a hex nine hexes above you, since you are still adjacent to the cryptolith it is only 4 spaces. I just wanted to verify I had the same interpretation as everyone else.

My thought is that a "space" is zero level - so it is only adjacent if it is on the "same level" as the Cryptolith {where the base of the 'lith is attached}.

The rule book mentions nothing about maximum range of spells (First rule book, I do not have SoI). Take that and the fact that some spell cards do specifically state ranges, I would say that unless specified, spell cards can target any creature/planeswalker regardless of range from one for your figures.

Hope this helps.

Re: AotP Question Dump

@obfuscatedhippo You are right, I did not pay attention that it says , "If you are standing on a space that is adjacent to a cryptolith" which means it is not the figure but the space that must be adjacent. I guess that means if the hex you are on is lower than the base of the cryptolith, you must essentially climb up to the invisible space adjacent to the cryptolith first, which means you count movement up to the base of the cryptolith, then add 4. Of course, if the hex you are on is higher than the hex the cryptolith is standing on, it is adjacent which means you still only count 4 spaces. This is similar to the ladder rules in the Fortress set.

Re: AotP Question Dump

Having no AotP, what should I get?

Thanks!

All 3 of them, especially now that they're so cheap at Amazon.

Re: AotP Question Dump

I have 2 of each so that either player can choose any spell, any planeswalker, or any unit. It's not necessary but it's nice, especially for building a spell deck. You don't need more than 1 for each player since everything is Unique.

I don't understand how these aren't instant buys for any MtG fan. Just dream of using figures as tokens..drool

Re: AotP Question Dump

+1. Thanks to Amazon and Target I now have 2x of everything except Zendikar (which I would have got from Amazon for $4 if I hadn't dallied).

Great game, and very very easily mixed with Heroscape if you don't mind the metagame changes.

Your custom probably has too much Defense.

Re: AotP Question Dump

I was under the impression that all water in AotP is 1 level lower than the land. Though it's never explicitly stated in the rules, they mention when leaving water that you have to spend an extra point of movement to go up the bank. That's what leads me to believe so.
