I have just started playing Ascension Storm of Souls. Since i have no previous experience from other card games like this, i find the description of some of the rules to be not quite as clear and precise as i would have liked. Which, to some extent, might be explained by the fact that English is not my mother tounge. Anyways..
After playing a about ten games, i think that most of my questions have been worked out. But one.
Many of the cards have effects that are worded like: Example 1 - "Gain 2 runes. The next time you acquire a Hero this turn, you may put it on top of your deck." or Example 2 - "Gain 1 rune. You pay 1 rune less the next time you acquire a Hero this turn." or Example 3 -"You may destroy this to pay 2 runes less the next time you acquire a Mechana Construct this turn."
How should "the next time you do X in this turn" be understood? In example 1 do i get the effect for the second Hero i acquire during that turn?
If my reading comprehension dosen't fail me completely, that's what i think it says. But, if so, then i almost never get to use those effects, because i rarely acquire more than one hero per turn. Which makes me believe that I just maybe is reading it wrong.. and that the effects are supposed to be read when i draw them from the card and put them out on the table in front of me. Which would mean that "the next time you acquire a Hero/destroy a construct etc" is actually the first time i acquire/destroy something, because "next" i just refering to a later time in the same round...
Śo, which is it?
