Hey everyone, I thought this deserved its own thread because I wanted to start a discussion about rules wording…specifically, what the term “target” means.
I got hammered in the comments of my Valhalla and Lord Loki videos for being confused about it at first…and really, I might be that dense, haha! However, there are mechanics in the game that say “target” and it means you target your own heroes. So, with a card that has relatively neutral wording, like Lord Loki when it says “Copies target’s special skill,” it’s not super clear to me that I can’t target my own hero when there exists battle items that allow me to target my own hero. The mechanic to do that already exists!
What if I want to use Loki on my own Kunchen to heal, cleanse, and give the opponent defense down? The mechanic already exists to be able to target my own heroes, so if I am not allowed to, then I think the rules wording should specify exactly who I’m allowed to target.
Well, anyways, I might be the only one who doesn’t like how the card is worded. I absolutely love the hero and I’m glad SG created a card so interesting and fun. If you want to hear some extended thoughts and see some examples of how the word “target” is currently used in E&P, check it out…
