Don't try to read too much into the deal vs dealt distinction when it comes to costs of dealing damage. It's inconsistent, but established as such via Trust Me for quite some time.

Are you sure about this?

The reason that I ask is that it says deal and not dealt, which I interpret from the FAQ ruling as being able to prevented and still trigger the Objective's ability. If you don't mind elaborating on where this breaks I'd appreciate it.

edit* I can see where the word cancel might make it so it prevents the costs from being paid, but I'm wondering when is the cancelling actually happening? (Corrupt Official's wording "objective would be damaged"  isn't super clear to me.)

 

Dengar's objective could prevent 1 of the damage correct?

The cost is 2 damage. So for the cost to be paid 2 damage needs to actually land on the objective. If the damage is prevented either partially or completely the cost has not been fully paid and the effect cannot resolve.

 

Damage getting removed is totally different. So back when Deploy the Fleet and Yularen were not restricted you could damage DtF 4 times, play Yularen to remove 2 damage, then damage it another 2 times, then play Executor for free. The cost was properly paid each time.

 You *can* but then you wouldn't get to copy the event. If you prevent the damage from going on the objective, then the cost(2 damage) has not been paid and you can't resolve the effect(coping the event).

My hope was that I could basically turn the Corrupt Official into a copy of another effect and avoid paying the damage cost. I see why that doesn't work now. Thank you for the clarification.

Bummer, really? I was gonna play Lucrative in my Sith/Scum deck exactly for this reason. If that's the case I'll just put in Killing Cold or something.

Corrupt Official- "Interrupt: When a [Scum and Villainy] objective would be damaged, discard this unit from your hand to cancel any amount of that damage." Can the Corrupt Official's ability negate the damage cost when using IDLYE?

If you steal an enemy unit that is comitted with this mission or emperor, do you also steal the force commit card? Since bounty hunters do have an effect for capturing the commit cards :o

Nope, the force card goes back to the supply (see FAQ).

If there's no enemy defender, chances are it's not a *contested* edge battle.

Thank you dbmeboy.

Can you use the Scout's action on yourself if you have no cards in hand?  I'm not sure about the then part of the card text.  Is discarding a card plus sacrificing the scout the cost to draw a card?  So if I have no cards in hand can I just sacrifice the scout to draw a card?

No.

 

The cost is sacrificing the unit.

 

The first part of the effect is that a player discards a card (if neither player has a card to discard, the ability cannot be triggered, see FAQ section 3.6).

 

The second part of the effect is that player drawing a card.  Because it uses the term "then," it is a dependent part of the effect and only happens if the first part of the effect resolves successfully (ie the chosen player successfully discards a card).

 "Double your opponent’s Force icon total" 

 

But if there is no enemy defenders?

Yes. In fact, if you use her ability on a Spectre unit that has all three Affiliations thanks to Custom Paint Job, the unit will get a black blaster, black tactics, and black bomb as well as edge 1.

Awesome, thanks!

Does this mean her action ability can stack? Using Sabine for example, she is a rebel and specter. Does that mean she gets tactics and edge one?

If I bounce Slave 1 into my opponents hand (outmanouvre) with Boba attached, does the interrupt still trigger? Because the unit with the interrupt itself leaves play first, causing the pilot to drop.

No, they leave play at the same time.

Having to shoot my own emperor because of this card made me sad :(
