Thanks for all your replies. If our dear RD is around though, I'd appreciate a direct ruling to avoid debates, if that's possible.

Can The Line be used to reduce the cost of a retainer played through Pack Alpha?

Relevant ruling [LSJ 20090920]

The Line

Pack Alpha



Yes.

Longer;

LSJ has in the past ruled that groups.google.com/g/rec.games.trading-cards.jyhad/c/vSOt2c1uRzQ/m/MsRAv47Cd4YJ
1) "All cost-affecting cards operate no matter how the card is played ("as normal"
or otherwise). All multiplication and division is handled first, followed by
addition and subtraction.
Note that pay nothing still means pay nothing, even if something else would add
to the cost. So costs for cards canceled by Sudden Reversal or Direct
Intervention are still not paid, for example. And Bauble and Horrid Reality
still gets weapons for free. And similar for Helena and Dragos.

Similarly, cards that can be used to pay some of the cost of other cards can be
used whenever such a cost is being paid (regardless of whether the card is
played "as normal" or not)."

Kiss counts that, yeah."

Correct.
BTW, all LSJ/Floppy rulings are valid, unless there's a more recent official ruling saying otherwise. I'm not sure why we would need a further confirmation.
