Erzren + Fortune Teller interaction


Rules Questions and Gameplay Discussion


Hi everyone !

We were playing with a friend using (Core) Ezren, and came across an interaction we don't know how to resolve. In his Mystic Diviner role, he has a power that reads

Ezren wrote:
When you examine the top card of a location or deck, you may examine the top 2 cards instead.

The Fortune Teller has a power that reads

Fortune Teller wrote:
At the end of your move step, reveal this card and choose a category: bane or boon. Then examine the top card of your location deck. If that card matches your choice, encounter it.

How do those interact together ? We were assuming that you would first chose a type (say, Boon), then examine the top 2 and encounter any boon examined this way (so 0, 1 or 2). But that still seems a bit weird.

Is there a ruling about that kind of stuff ? I couldn't find any. Thanks in advance !


You may look at two cards, but the Fortune Teller only cares about the top card.

See this thread about CD Alahazra, who has the same type of power.

Incidentally, as far as I know, this is no different to Core Ezren's own power, Fortune Teller (and other boons) aside, which also only cares about the top card of his deck even though his Mystic Diviner role lets him examine 2 cards instead of one.

At the start of your turn, you may examine the top card of your deck; if it is a spell, you may draw it. (☐ Then you may recharge the top card of your deck.)

You still can't draw a spell from 'underneath' the top card of your deck, just like you can't use the second examined card to check if Fortune Teller 'worked'.
