Possible Lighthouse glitch

Just played a game (#23503012), with a kingdom that included a Margrave, Lighthouse and Den of sin.

If I've understood correctly, if in a turn I play a lighthouse, then I am immune from my opponent's Margrave if it is played in the following turn. Some turns I played a lighthouse, but got hit with the Margrave's discard attack anyway. This didn't always happen - looking back through the log (which I should have saved before coming out!) I think it was turns where I'd played a Lighthouse, then a Den of Sin, that the lighthouse didn't work.

Is this a known issue? Is this me not appreciating the finer points of card interaction, or even not really understanding how Lighthouses work, or just having misread the log?

My best guess is confusion with the reaction on Diplomat.
When Lighthouse "Blocks" an attack, you still get to trigger your reactions.

I agree with Rabid, that the Diplomat effect (which includes discarding 3 cards, the usual amount for Margrave discards) probably is what you mistook for the Margrave effect. I looked at the log and for example the Margrave draw for the other players (you, when opponent plays it) is never listed for you when you were protected by Lighthouse.

Fair enough - that makes sense!

I did wonder if it was a card interaction I didn't understand - the diplomat reaction wasn't one I'd thought of!
