Lurker/Changeling clarification
« on: October 28, 2019, 03:39:36 pm »

I want to make sure I understand correctly how Changeling interacts with cards such as Lurker that can take cards from the trash

If I get a card from the trash and choose to replace it with Changeling, what happens to that card?  I'm thinking the card will be returned to the Supply.  Am I correct there, or does it return to where it came from, namely, the trash?

this is a couple distinct steps -
1: you gain the card from the trash
2: you exchange the gained card for the changeling
2.1: you return the gained card to the supply or its non-supply pile, as appropriate.
2.2: you move a changeling from the supply to your discard pile.

note that 2.2 is not gaining.

In Dominion, if the text states "when you gain," what it really means is "immediately after you gain." I.e. the "when you gain" effect actually happens right after you've actually gained the card.

(Side note: There are different interactions that come into play with Trader and Possession, both of which say "would gain," which happens before the actual gaining of a card takes place.)

Thank you!  I was pretty sure that's how it worked from how exchange was defined.  Glad to see I understood it correctly :-)  So this would be one of the handful of situations that can cause an empty supply pile to no longer be empty
