Illegal Search and Seizure question
Illegal Search and Seizure
Master. Burn a weapon that costs more than 2 pool or inflicts (with a regular strike) aggravated damage or more than 3 damage. The bearer of the weapon takes 1 damage. This damage cannot be prevented.
- A weapon's "current damage" is the amount of damage that the weapon would inflict if used as a strike by bearer against a generic opponent
- A "regular strike" is unmodified, so would use the default strength.
A Poker wouldn't burn (even if every minion in play had Cold Iron Vulnerability) because jolly wee fairy vampires aren't generic opponents.
Ditto Blade of Enoch.
I assume Crimson Sentinel or Jar of Skin Eaters would only burn if they had counters on them, since they do only 2 and 0 damage without any counters.
I think everything else is based just off the obvious card text. The only tricksy thing is that "cost" means current or generic cost. That is, a Combat Shotgun is considered to cost 3 pool, even if it came into play for only 1 pool (e.g. via Black Cat playing Jack of Both Sides).

The lower pool cost is used for the "cost" of equipment on her. [RTR 19941109]
If she is equipped with something and that equipment is transferred to another minion, then it regains its normal pool value. Conversely, if a piece of equipment moves onto her, its effective pool cost is lowered by 1. [RTR 19941109]

Card text, split out:
a) costs more than 2 pool or
b) inflicts (with a regular strike) aggravated damage or
c) [inflicts (with a regular strike)] more than 3 damage.
Ivory Bow costs 1 pool, so it does not fulfill a.
Ivory Bow inflicts 1 damage with a regular strike, so it does not fulfill c.
Ivory Bow inflicts aggravated damage with a regular strike, so it fulfills b.
Why do you think it wouldn't work on Ivory Bow?
