Opponent plays Sea Hag and I have no cards

If an opponent plays Sea Hag, but I have no cards in my deck, and no cards in my discard pile, do I get a curse or not? I say no because the card reads "discard the top card of his deck, THEN gains a Curse card, putting it on top of his deck" If it said AND then I would get a curse but it says THEN so I don't

It would say "If they did" if it wanted to be read like that.  "Then" just means, after you try to do this, do this.

You get a Curse regardless.

As always, try to resolve as much as possible from left to right, top to bottom.
The "then" is not a condition, just an order of things happening.

So the discard happens first (if possible), then you gain a Curse (regardless and if possible).

yeah, agree with everything that was said.

Also, welcome to the forum!  This post should probably have been in rules question, and feel free to post any more questions you might have as well as reading different articles, posting game logs for discussion, and doing other things that we won't talk about.

Man. I had four strips of bacon yesterday. Was one automatically undercooked, one automatically overcooked? No, let's put a stop to that right here, all four strips were excellent.
