Champion and Reactions

Even though Champion gives protection from attacks, are you still able to reveal, say, a Horse Trader to an enemy Witch?

My guess would be yes, since it seems like the protection should be like revealing a Moat, where you can also reveal any number of other reactions for attacks. But maybe Champ treats it like there is no attack.

Lighthouse lets you play reactions, and is also a duration w/ forced protection. So I see no reason Champ would be different, but it seems worth clarifying since the Wiki page doesn't say.

Yes.

Contrary to popular belief, I do not run the wiki all on my own.  There are plenty of other people who are actively editing.  Go bother them!

Yes. Horse Traders, Secret Chamber and Moat all have the trigger "when an opponent plays an attack card", and don't care whether you would be affected by the attack. (Indeed, they have to be revealed before the opponent decides whether he's doing any attacking in the cases of Pirate Ship and Minion.)

Watchtower, Trader and Tunnel, which all react to the effects of an attack rather than the attack itself, are another matter. If I've got Champion in play and you play Followers, I can't reveal a Trader to gain a Silver, nor can I discard a Tunnel to gain a Gold, because the attack-blocking is preventing the effects that trigger those Reactions.

Centuries later, archaeologists discover the remains of your ancient civilization.

Evidence of thriving towns, Pottery, roads, and a centralized government amaze the startled scientists.

Finally, they come upon a stone tablet, which contains but one mysterious phrase!

'ISOTROPIC WILL RETURN!'
