Icon Abbreviations

Within this document the following abbreviations are used to represent game icons which appear in the printed text box of cards:

  • {r} Resource Point
  • {p} Power
  • {d} Defense Value
  • {h} Life (of a hero card)
  • {i} Intellect (of a hero card)

New Set Theme

Arcane Damage

Arcane damage is a new form of dealing damage that is introduced in Arcane Rising. It is primarily dealt by spellcasters and requires unique ways for the opponent to prevent the damage.

Example card:

Voltic Bolt

Pitch: 1
Cost: 2

Wizard Action

Deal 5 arcane damage to target hero.

Defense: 3

  • Arcane damage cannot be defended using the defense value of cards in hand or with defense reactions.
  • Arcane damage must be prevented with arcane barrier (more details below) or cards that specify preventing arcane damage or (any) damage.

Reveal the top card of your deck

There are multiple cards in Arcane Rising that reveal the top card of your deck and checks its pitch value.

Example card:

Ravenous Rabble

Pitch:1
Cost: 0

Generic Action - Attack

Reveal the top card of your deck. Ravenous Rabble gets -X{p}, where X is the pitch value of the card revealed this way. (The pitch value is located in the top left corner of the card.)

Go again

Power: 5
Defense: 2

  • The pitch value is located in the top left corner.
  • If there are no cards left in the deck, the ability does not resolve. Ravenous Rabble's power will be 5.

'Non-attack' action cards matter

There are multiple cards in Arcane Rising that reference or care about 'non-attack' action cards. A 'non-attack' action card is any card with card-type action that does not have sub-type attack.

Card-type and sub-type can be found center bottom of a card. A card's sub-types are everything that comes after the hyphen in the card type box. For example Generic Action - Attack.

Playing 'non-attack' actions as though they were an instant

There are multiple cards in Arcane Rising that allow you to play an action as though it were an instant.

Example card:

Rifting

Pitch:1
Cost: 2

Generic Action - Attack

If Rifting hits, you may play you next 'non-attack' action card this turn as though it were an instant.

Power: 6
Defense: 2

  • You can play an instant anytime you have priority.
  • You do not need an action point to play an instant.
  • If you play an action with go again as an instant, you will gain 1 action point when it resolves. If you play Rifting, it hits and you have no action points remaining, you could play an action with go again as an instant (during your action phase), and when that action resolves, you will gain 1 action point.
  • The action phase ends when both players pass in succession on an empty chain, NOT when a player has no action points. Using the above example, you can go from having zero action points to 1 action point during your action phase, by playing a card with go again as an instant.
  • If you play an action with go again during an opponents action phase, you will NOT gain an action point when it resolves. You an only gain action points during your own action phase.
  • Although you are playing the action card "as though it were an instant", it's card type is still action. Effects that interact with actions being played, are still applied.

New Keywords

Arcane Barrier

Arcane barrier is one of the most common ways to combat arcane damage. If you would be dealt arcane damage you may pay a {r} instead to prevent some amount of arcane damage that source will deal, depending on the level of arcane barrier the card has.

Example card:

Nullrune Hood

Generic Equipment - Head

Arcane Barrier 1 (If your hero would be dealt arcane damage, you may pay {r} instead. If you do, prevent 1 arcane damage that source would deal.)

Defense: 0

  • You can have multiple instances of arcane barrier, for example Nullrune Hood, Nullrune Cloak, and Nullrune Gloves.
  • Arcane barrier can be used every time you would be dealt arcane damage. It's not limited to once per turn.
  • Each instance of arcane barrier you control can be used 1 time only, each time a source would deal arcane damage to you. For example if a source would deal 5 arcane damage to you, and you control two cards with arcane barrier 1, you will in total be able to prevent 2 arcane damage this source would deal to you.
  • To fully prevent a card dealing 3 arcane damage, you would require 3 arcane barrier and 3 resources to prevent it. To fully prevent the arcane damage from 3 Runechant tokens (3 instances of 1 damage), you would require 1 arcane barrier and 3 resources to prevent it.
  • A equipment with arcane barrier does not move to the chain when arcane barrier is used.
  • You can prevent arcane damage you would deal to yourself.
  • Players cannot respond to the prevention. Arcane barrier is a replacement effect, not an activated or triggered ability.
  • You can only pay resources to arcane barrier if a source would deal arcane damage to you.
  • Preventing arcane damage does not destroy the equipment with arcane barrier (unless otherwise specified).

Opt X

Opt is a keyword that allows you to look at the top X cards and put any number of them on the top and/or bottom of your deck in any order.

Example card:

Whisper of the Oracle

Pitch: 1
Cost: 0

Opt 4 (Look at the top 4 cards of your deck. You may put them on the top and/or bottom in any order.)

Go again

Power: -
Defense: 3

  • The number of cards you place on top and bottom of your deck is known to your opponent, the order of the cards are not.
  • You may put all of the cards on the top or all of the cards on the bottom if you wish.

Boost

Boost is a Mechanologist mechanic that allows a Mechanologist attack action card to gain go again.

Example card:

Throttle

Pitch: 1
Cost: 2

Mechanologist Attack Action

Boost (As an additional cost to play Throttle, you may banish the top card of your deck. If it's a Mechanologist card, Throttle gains go again.)

Power: 6
Defense: 3

  • Boost is an additional cost. You choose if you want to boost or not at the time you play the card.
  • You may only boost once per instance of boost.
  • You are considered to have boosted regardless of whether the boost was successful or not.

Reload

Reload is a Ranger mechanic that allows you to put a card from your hand face down into your arsenal when the card resolves.

Example card:

Take Aim

Pitch: 1
Cost: 0

Ranger Action

The next Ranger attack action card you play this turn, gains +3{p}.

Reload (If you have no cards in your arsenal, you may put a card from your hand face down into your arsenal.)

Go again

Power: -
Defense: 2

  • You may choose to put no cards from your hand to your arsenal.
  • Your arsenal must be empty to put a card into your arsenal.

New Token

Runechant

Runeblade Token - Aura
(Auras stay in the arena until they are destroyed.)

When you play an attack action card or attack with a weapon, destroy Runechant and deal 1 arcane damage to target opposing hero

  • Each Runechant is its own source of arcane damage, therefore a single instance of arcane barrier 1 can be used to prevent arcane damage from multiple Runechants provided the player the resources to pay for each prevention.
  • The Runechant aura token remains in play until destroyed.
  • When you attack, you must destroy all Runechant auras you control at the time the attack is announced. It's not optional.
  • A Runechant aura token may be represented by a small object such as a card sleeve or coin if a Runechant aura token card is not available.
  • If you control multiple Runechant auras, you may use a dice to represent this.
