Ex Nihilo and Sniper Rifle

If it doesn't affect environmental damage, then I can envision a Dawn Operation happiness deck in the unforeseeable future.
Minion strikes with a weapon - It is both the minion AND the weapon inflicting damage. At least afaik.
Since the question basically was: "what can I damage my opponent with while having ex nihilo on me"? The answer is: enviromental damage such as carrion crows, murder of crows, wolf companion etc. Theft of blood seems like a working option as well, since it isn't damage.
I am not entirely sure right now whether damage from outside the hourglass is dealt by the minion or not.. Its a combat card and says "inflict 2 damage on the opposing minion" but not "This minion inflicts 2 damage on the opposing minion". I'd like to know..
EDIT: After some digging, apparently it is the minion inflicting the damage.

Are you sure?
No...I am not that sure anymore. Mistakes happen when cards are read.
Dawn Operation + Skin of Night, perhaps?
