I found this ruling on Dominion Strategy Wiki FAQ for Band of Misfits:
You first play Band of Misfits, then you play the card you chose to emulate. In this sense, Band of Misfits plays like a Throne Room variant, and one play of Band of Misfits with a successful emulation counts as two Actions played; this matters for Conspirator.
So my understanding of Band of Misfits is that it basically reads "Choose a card in the supply costing less than Band of Misfits. Band of Misfits is that card until it leaves play. Play band of Misfits." Is this correct?
However, on the same page, I found this:
If you use Throne Room, King's Court, or Procession to play a Band of Misfits card multiple times, you only pick what to play it as the first time; the other times it is still copying the same card.
These two rulings don't seem to make sense if Band of Misfits is copying Feast. I would think it works like this:
- Play Throne Room. Choose Band of Misfits.
- Play Band of Misfits. Choose Feast.
- Play Band of Misfits as Feast. Trash Feast.
- Throne Room loses track of Band of Misfits and can't put it into play, but it's still played from the trash.
- Band of Misfits has reverted to itself, so the card you're playing shouldn't be Feast anymore. From here I see two possibilities, and neither one seems completly right:
- Since Band of Misfits isn't in play, it can't copy anything(?), so nothing happens.
- You can play Band of Misfits as a new card, but it immediately reverts to being itself on resolution(?).
Why does Throne Room keep track of what Band of Misfits copied? It seems like there's no reason for that. And if this is the case, what exactly is being played the second time? Is it actually a card? Does Band of Misfits mean it's actually copying that exact card in the supply that you chose?
