Hmm i wonder can you still trigger some response based on card leaving play. It is replaced, but being put on a bottom of the deck doesn't really change the fact it left play... dunno

Disrupt can be triggered during story resolution etc.

If you have only one card you take it, there is no "choose" or "if able" here.
"being put on a bottom of the deck doesn't really change the fact that it left play..." Yeah, that's what I'd say.

I think "if able" has to be implicit, otherwise...what? Tindalos A can't die or be sacrificed if there are less than two cards in the discard pile?
He definitely dies (is destroyed/sacrificed). The other option would be:
- you cannot trigger disrupt so he "dies normally"
- you trigger disrupt so he goes at bottom of deck, but you get no cards to hand

CoC has some effects where you do "all or nothing" or "as much as you can", and this depends on some wording nuances I tend to mistake. Here i think it's "as much as you can" but maybe im wrong (again).
