As far as I can see, the superior's "This (opposing) minion does not untap as normal during your untap phase" is a null statement, since other Methuselah's minions don't untap then anyway.

Edited to add: This is from the flattened library file - I haven't downloaded the other version to see if they're different.


Minion cards are controlled by the player whos minions they are on, so it will burn on the persons untap phase whos minion it is on.

Correct.

Do you have some cards in mind?

PetriWessman wrote: Hmm, a question about Gianna di Canneto. The text says, in part:

"When another of your minions is in combat, Gianna can tap and burn herself to burn any equipment on the opposing minion, or..."

Can she do that even if the opposing minion has no equipment?

No. You would need an equipment to be there to burn her.

for starters, Ennoia's Theater.

Ennoia's Theater wrote: Unique location.
You can tap this card to get +1 hand size this turn. You can tap this card during your influence phase to get +1 transfer.


it doesn't conform to the "during x, do y" template as well as it could, like Dreams of the Sphinx.

Dreams of the Sphinx wrote: Unique master.
Put this card in play. Put a counter on this card each time you tap it. When the third counter is added, burn this card. Tap this card to get +2 hand size until the end of the current turn. Tap during your untap phase to gain an additional pool if you have the Edge. Tap to move a blood from the bank to a vampire in your uncontrolled region.


in my mind, the card should read like this:

Ennoia's Theater wrote: Unique location.
Tap this card to get +1 hand size this turn. During your influence phase, you may tap this card to gain a (or alternatively "for +1") transfer.


there is a card titled... "Thing." seriously?

Rewilding should read

rewilding wrote: (d) Burn a location controlled by any Methuselah. That Methuselah burns 2 pool.


all of the wraiths are susceptible to non-aggravated damage, which upon some research isn't an actual gripe, but a preconception i had. so you get a pass on that.

Dam the Heart's River reads:

Dam the Heart's River wrote: Frenzy. Only usable before range is determined. A vampire can play only one Dam the Heart's River each combat.
:qui: This combat, each strike or damaging effect made against the opposing minion inflicts +1 damage.
:QUI: As above, and this combat, strikes cost the opposing minion 1 additional blood or life, and the opposing minion can choose not to strike.


should read more like torn signpost:

Dam the Heart's River wrote: Frenzy. Only usable before range is determined.
:qui: Each of this minion's strikes or damaging effects inflict +1 damage for the remainder of combat. A vampire can play only one Dam the Heart's River each combat.
:QUI: as above and strikes cost the opposing minion 1 additional blood or life (the opposing minion can choose not to strike).


there are, extra commas, that make the cards seem like they're, narrated by, Christopher, Walken, or.... god, forbid... the.... William... Shatner...


i haven't really had much time to look through the crypt cards, but i get a feeling that this batch didn't pay much attention to how other similar cards were worded and it comes off feeling amateurish, i guess? i certainly don't mean any disrespect to any of the design team.

Seems serious to me, I guess it is supposed to be gathering (the word is still used in the Nordics) :)

This very same question was asked in the #vtes irc channel. I guess non-Scandinavians just don't learn what a "thing" is in elementary school. :)

Now I'm eagerly awaiting for a card called Turpakäräjät, which is colloquial Finnish for "a thing, but with Finnish politics :POT: ". ;)
