hi guys i'm just going to throw out a bunch of timing and card ability related questions that have come up in my games.
thanks ahead of time for all help rendered.
1) Sword Brethren Dreadnought
"Unstoppable - The first time this unit is assigned damage this round, prevent 1 of that damage and you may trigger the Battle ability of this planet."
- so let's say that that he takes 10 hits in one go and i'm unable to block it or cannot block enough of it that he does not end up with even one HP left. now in this means that i trigger the battle ability of the planet and that he is also dead. but let's say that the planet is Iridial (remove all damage from a target unit). now timing wise can i remove all damage from the SB Dreadnought so that he doesn't end up dying or does the order of operations remove that option?
2) Ragnar's Sentinels.
"Reaction: After your warlord commits to a planet, move this unit to that planet. "
- when exactly does this trigger timing wise and is it optional (i am assuming it isn't optional)? i'm trying to understand how command struggles interact with these cards. let's say there are 3 planets. i deploy a sentinel to planet 1 and another to planet 2 and then i commit my warlord to planet three. do i need to perform the reaction the moment i commit my warlord or can i hold off. win the command struggle on planet 1 and then move my unit and the same on planet 2 or do i need to move my units the moment after i commit my warlord?
- if the reaction has such a delay built into it i can potentially use these cards to win command struggles on multiple planets.
3) Blackmane's hunt.
Reaction: After your warlord commits to a planet, commit your warlord to an adjacent planet.
- same vein as before. how does the reaction timing work for the command struggle? can i commit ragnar to planet 1. win the command struggle there and then play this card and then move him to planet 2 and win the command struggle there? or does the Command Phase Action window occur after all the Command Struggles have already occurred.
