Rebel Saboteur: Interrupt: When an opponent triggers an ability on an in-faction card he controls, spend 1 resource and discard this unit from your hand to cancel that ability’s effects.
Blizzard 1:Reaction: After this unit is focused to strike, instead of resolving its combat icons, discard a target participating unit without an enhancement on it.
Blizzard 2: Reaction: After this unit is focused to strike, instead of resolving its combat icons, set the Balance of the Force to the dark side and skip the Force phase this turn.
So, if my Navy playing opponent triggers one of the above and I cancel its effects with Saboteur, do the Blizzards strike normally or not at all because "instead" is a cost that has been payed and there are replacement issues going on?
Thanks in advance.
