If Obella Sand is chosen as the target during the effect of the Seastone Chair, can she trigger her effect?
Rakharo has been ruled to gain power even when a claim-replacement effect (e.g. The Seastone Chair) is at work. Thus, even though claim is replaced by an ostensibly non-claim kill, that kill is still 'satisfying claim'. Personally, it's never been clear to me how claim can be successfully satisfied if it is replaced, but I'll go with it.
The Seastone Chair specifically says "Instead of the normal claim effects, kill that character"
Do we interpret this as "Instead of normal claim effects, do this other claim effect" ?
Or should it be "Instead of normal claim effects, do this other thing that (even though it kinda resembles it) is unrelated to claim" ?
If it is the first, then it seems to me that both Rakharo and Obella should trigger on military claim replacement.
If is the second, then neither should.
Relevant card texts:
Obella Sand: After Obella Sand is ... killed for [Mil] claim, move 1 power from the winning opponent's faction card to your own.
The Seastone Chair: When claim is applied for an unopposed [Mil] challenge in which you are the attacking player, kneel your faction card to choose a character without attachments, controlled by the losing opponent. Instead of the normal claim effects, kill that character.
Rakharo: After a character is killed to satisfy claim during a challenge you initiated, Rakharo gains 1 power.
