Lower the cost for you to play characters with a printed cost of 5 or higher by 1 (to a minimum of 1).

There are a number of cards that reduce their cost to play by sacrificing cultists. Can you reduce their cost by 2 by having this cost in play and then sacrificing it?

I found this on the Kassogtha page: (one of only two characters I could find with this effect - the other being Ruinous Star Spawn).


Seeker of Mysteries would be able to lower the cost and then be sacrificed with the other cultists.

I don't really like this ruling, but I think that both discounts are being treated as conditional passive effects, and they both "go off" during step 1d) and thus you get to choose the order, and thus get both discounts for the Seeker.


It's also possible the "sacrifice to lower cost"-bit is somehow being handled as an effect of playing the card, rather than as a passive cost modifier, though that would be very weird as you have already payed the costs by then.
