another Gambit thread: EB+Throwing Mastery = double damage?

Post by Vortex » Tue Jul 05, 2005 11:48 am


Question: If you build a Gambit-like imbuing power, would you allow additional damage from Throwing Mastery?

On the first thought I would say NO, because actually the EB (imbued objects) is a different power than Throwing Mastery. You could say the imbued items just somehow lose their normal damaging potential while encased in the energy.

What do you think?

Thanks for any advice

I say no, because the card is blown up as it touches the tartget. So, no chance to stick into and damage the tartget.
Could be an opinion thing. :wink:
