Watchtower + Gain to hand
« on: March 05, 2018, 10:20:44 pm »

In an online game, I played Artisan, gaining a Watchtower.   I then had the option of reacting to the gained Watchtower, with the gained Watchtower.  Is this behavior correct?

This sounds correct. Revealing a Watchtower is something you do after you have done the actual gain. The game doesnít know any difference between a Watchtower that was in your hand before and one that you just now put in your hand.

Iím mostly sure that Lose Track doesnít cause any issues here either. Because the gain was directly to hand, in your hand is where the card is expected to be, so it hasnít moved from its default position. So you should be able to successfully top-deck or trash that Watchtower.

I suspected it was probably correct.  My main concern is whether the "when gain" period is still in effect once the Watchtower is in my hand.  Now that I'm writing this thought down, it feels obvious that it is.  I guess it's kind of like the Cultist/Market Square interaction.

Could one Artisan-gain a Trader then Trader-switch that Trader for a Silver? Sounds silly, but the Silver would then be in one's discard pile, whereas, had one gained Silver directly with Artisan, it would be in one's hand. That could be preferable.

No, you have to reveal Trader before gaining the card you're trading. This is different from the timing of Watchtower.
