My brother's poor Lini had already rolled the dice for Geyser + Blazing Servant on a combat check when it occurred to me that I didn't think it worked. We took the results and moved on, and I said I'd asked the forums.
The text of Blazing Servant says, in part, "You may play another spell on this check." Since it only adds to your check though, you would have to play it in part 3 of the Attempting a Check Sequence: Play Cards and Powers that Affect the Check. Playing the attack spell happens back in part 1, though: Determine which Skill You're Using.
In order to use Blazing Servant with an attack spell, it would need to say "You may play this card even if you've already played a spell on this check" or something similar, right? Or am I overthinking this?

The relevant power on Blazing Servant:"Discard this card and recharge another card to add 1d8 + the recharged card’s adventure deck number, if any, to your check. You may play another spell on this check."
Thanks, I didn't have the card handy.
So, if you were going to play an attack spell, I'm thinking that you would need to play it first, to set the skill being used. Then you would want to play this, but I'm still not sure if you can.

Hmm that's an interesting question then. So Blazing Servant specifically has be to played later due to when each card is relevant.
It gets weird, because, playing Blazing Servant lets you play another spell. Except you can't play Blazing Servant because you've already played a spell. As written I'd say no, but I really can't even guess at what the intent was.
I think I'd agree with Andrew. A similar question came up with Snakeskin Tunic and a Shield. Since they were different steps of the check, the "another" part mattered.
