Torch bearer not working
« on: January 11, 2015, 10:54:39 PM »
I would really like to know how this card is supposed to work! Yesterday I played a match and left my enemy with 1 hp, then I played torch bearer and nothing happened. I thought maybe it count's as deployed only when in attack/defense zone but it still had no effect.
I was against a Dragon deck but it had no effects on board that could prevent that dmg.

you should check what other cards the opponent has and what they do, did they prevent the damage somehow or gain any health?

Just to check, you weren't expecting the game to finish right away, were you? Unlike some games, you don't lose as soon as your health is dropped to zero, win/loss is checked at the end of turn. Did it reduce them to zero, but the rest of the turn played out?

The extra damage isn't applied until you finish your turn. I don't think you can kill your opponent while you are planning your turn. I have a pauper deck with one in my command zone and it works just fine.
