Worth noting that it's not just triggered abilities this prevents. You can counteract Covert with this, for example.

It's a very powerful counter.  It also is expensive, but having played against it a couple times now I can definitely say it's annoying to see it hit the table.  I almost never want to sacrifice something to it since the effect needs to be worth cancelling for them to elect to sacrifice the attachment.  I usually just wait for the attached character to fate out rather than waste resources.  If that's how most people handle this card I think it makes it a pretty valuable include.  There are certainly some vunerable units out there with really impactful abilities that could benefit from this sort of protection.

It's an awesome card indeed. Much powerful and useful with every game we play. I even changed Above Questions for these.

@Asklepios Covert is not an ability, it is a keyword.

@Asklepios Covert is not an ability, it is a keyword.

A “card ability” includes: actions, constant abilities, interrupts, keywords, and reactions (RRG pg 2). Since Covert is one of those things, and it has both an initiation point and it targets, you would be able to use Finger of Jade to cancel Covert.

Yes, I love that unlike 40k: Conquest, "targeting" is the act of picking something as a target, rather than being some pseudo-English semantic ultra-specific rules term. One of the few things in this game that is intuitive!


Currently adding Finger of Jade to my dragon deck, helps safeguard against Forbidden Crossing, and Assassinate, and much more, and gives that extra layer of protection beyond Above Question from the Crane alliance, as well as an expensive counter to those soft-control effects that trouble Dragon.


Shame it doesn't block Way of the Crab, but you can't have it all!

Can I cancel Kamayari with it ?

Are you sure? Kamayiri doesn't target, I believe.

Indeed, Kamayari does not say "choose a character", it does not target, and thus cannot be cancelled by Finger of Jade.
