Yes, after uncommitting.

When is the timing on Henry Knoll's response at a story in the struggles since only distrupts and forced responses occur durrning story struggles? Can his response be used in the action window after uncommiting & after readying from winning an arcane struggle at a story? Thanks!

Basically one-sided character clearer in the right deck. Take advantage of the fact that people don't like playing with attachments.

I'm using Olney in my Khopesh deck with Terror of the Tides and Khopesh. It almost seems unfair to kill my own Terror and then bring him back minus all those wounds. Almost... ;)

Pairs well with College Prospect, Doctor Bancroft, and just about any other wound seekers. Of course, Khopesh gives you control over when your guys die, so you make sure you have a domain open for Olney.

I like this card more for its wound removal than its restoration effect. Restoration can be found everywhere, but recursive wound removal? The list begins and ends here.

I have Mu in my Khopesh deck. I use Flooded Vault to tutor whichever one I don't draw (or to tutor a Sports Scholarship to boost Khopesh), then I get to work. Combining the best wounding card in the game with the only recursive healing in the game makes the most sense to me.

It reads "readied in this way." You just have to readied in that way. There are no stipulations about being restored.

Do the words " this way" mean "restored AND readied"?

May I just ready 1 non-insane character and exhaust another character?

I would agree that having readied X characters, you have to select X different characters to be exhausted.

The characters you restore+ready don't have to be exhausted/insane other, you can "ready" a guy that started ready, just to get the second effect happening (it's just like the way Y'Golonac works).

You certainly can choose opponents characters during the readying part, helpful if they have more guys than you, otherwise generally not helpful.

 

So, generally you can double-exhaust all of your opponents guys, regardless of how many guys each of you have, but as noted above you can only effectively stand up as many of your guys as they have patsies to wear the penalty.

 

I also think this one has slightly weird timing if you win it on an opponents turn, since it refers to "the next refresh phase" not "their next refresh phase".

Well, you should probably only ready three characters for optimal play, in the scenario you describe. I'm assuming "all in" means there are no other characters in play than the ones that participated in the story--ready or exhausted.

But remember that you have to exhaust the same number you readied. So if you ready more characters than your opponent has, some of your own characters will then have to get exhausted. That's why I specified 3 because, in my example, my opponent had 3 characters. That's how I read it anyway.

It says, "restore and ready any number of characters." You wouldn't be limited to three. You could even restore your opponent's characters. It might be worth your while to do so just so that you could exhaust them with the second stage of the story effect, keeping them from readying in the next refresh phase.

If I went all-in with 5 characters at this story and my opponent went all-in with 3 characters, and I won the story, how should I resolve the story effect? I'm thinking I should ready 3 of my guys, no more and no less, but maybe I'm misunderstanding this card. Can someone please clarify this card for me? Does my understanding sound correct?

trap card for new players, this card is just loaded with so many weaknesses that it's unplayable IMO. Make it cost 1, make it playable anytime, or just flat out take away the choice and just make it do one thing. Any of these improvements would help. As it is, it's just another in a long line of underwhelming ST cards.

You can only play characters during your operations phase unless you have a character card that specifically says otherwise.

Can I play a charater except in my operations phase through this triggered effect?

The Polar subtype is a flavor thing in this case, has Wendigo only exist in polar climates traditionally.

I'm putting this question to the room: in a deck built around TSK, do you go with Guardian Pillar or Josef Meiger?
Hunting Wendigo
*----

May 16 2016 07:38 PM by Track8

Is there a specific reason why Hunting Wendigo has the Polar subtype?  There are a number of non-Events that are Polar, yet I see no specific way to play off of that in the game.  I've only seen Polar mechanics for Events.

 

As an aside, I hate this card in a mono-Cthulhu deck.  He bring nothing to that archetype that it doesn't already have in spades.  That said, splash him into something like an Explorer build, add in Irem to play off the Lost Civilization mechanic that Explorers like, and now you've got something.  Miskatonic can obviously benefit from having a big meaty beatstick like the Wendigo on their side, and who is better at unlocking a Dormant card quickly than Miskatonic?

On the bright side, there aren't actually any cards that use the name ****, so the intrusion is minimal.

Jesus, I didn't know this site had a cumstumper. It edited out a nickname for "Richard" in my previous comment.
