I was testing out Lepiota and Vollermork yesterday and found that a ghosted hero was able to receive a fiend. Previously I hadn’t used heroes with ghost skills, so I was unsure if this was standard or something new with the update. I asked an alliance mate to help me test out if this condition also applied to minions. In fact, it did. A ghosted hero could receive a minion and/or a fiend. I thought this was a bit peculiar, as typically it is almost as if the ghosted hero doesn’t exist. In the test with my alliance mate, I also noted that the minion could not be removed by tile damage as the hero was ghosted, but the minion could still attack. However, in comparison, the fiend couldn’t be removed by healing as a ghosted hero can’t be healed, but it was NOT able to damage. This seemed like a little slanted toward minions.
In addition, it occurred to me that this ghosted hero could receive a Sword minion (from LotL) or butterfly minion (from Bera). Both of which have significant effects, but in ghost mode can’t be removed by damage for up to 4 turns. While both of these cases might be rare, it still seems to present a problem.
The interactions mentioned above can be seen in this video: https://youtu.be/CfitktWP2gc
In addition, I asked a friend of mine to test out minion summoning with Ameonna and Stonecleave which yielded the same result of them being able to gain minions. In theory, this could be used to maintain sword minions, card minions, or butterfly minions for a longer period of time, thus swaying the tide of a battle.

I’m not sure whether this is a bug or working as intended. If it is the latter, please feel free to close this thread.
Edit: Thank you to LW, Leilow, and Kypros for helping me out with this.
