Not sure if this was caught or is too late, but shouldn't Cursed Egyptians have the 'Egyptian' identifier?

As one of the first 2 previews, this card underwent some pretty significant changes before becoming UR. The entire concept of the set is based around the conversation that took place in this passage of scripture, so it seems appropriate this this card should interact heavily with the cards associated with the sets newest theme.

Interesting choice of UR :) Kinda nice that it isn't such a HIGH end chaser card. :) Maybe I can get a couple this time.

It should, and does I believe. But we don't always have space for everything in the identifier line - The King of Nineveh isn't identified as a king.

Yeah saying he is "king of Nineveh" kinda identifies him a bit. :)

Good Wages? CBN battlewinner off Isaiah? Recurrable by Malachi? Seems pretty good. Obviously best with prophets but not bad even in its other brigades.

I thought that if it had the identifier in the card's name it wasn't required in the identifier line. Still nice for consistency, but not necessary.

Yeah Cursed Egyptians definitely doesn’t need the identifier, I just like cards to have them when possible.

The star ability on a card is optional and can be carried out any time you draw a card (with a star ability on it) by game rule. There are two times that happens, your draw 8 at the start of the game and your draw 3 at the start of each turn. If you choose to use the star ability, you reveal the card and perform the action after the star.
One question regarding this (maybe already answered): When drawing 3 or 8 - does one have to play the star ability of each card whenever this card is drawn or can one draw 8 / 3 and afterwards play all * abilities in any order?


Maybe we should open a Rules thread regarding *?

This is more of a question of how the game works than how * cards work. Cards are all drawn together (8 or 3), even if you draw them individually for practical purposes. This includes putting Lost Souls down and drawing the replacement card(s).

So if lost souls and * cards are drawn together, which is activated first * abilities or lost soul abilities? Or is it any of those abilities in any order or is it what was drawn first. Somebody please give me a clear answer so I can rule this correctly.

I'm pretty sure it's * then LS, partly because Prosperity can muddy which cards were drawn by ability vs by rule.

All numbered cards have had their images updated on the OP (except for The Great Fish). If there’s anything I’ve missed (i.e., a card that’s been numbered but isn’t listed on the OP) please let me know.

No worries. Not everyone reads that stuff. But it’s good to have a place to point for official information.  8)

Now that the full list is posted on Land of Redemption and they haven't been posted here yet (and I'm bored at work), here's the highlights of the changes to common cards that I saw (not including the art updates, though I'm very glad to see those, especially on the curses):

Noah's Ark (Ark of Salvation) - can now hold a Genesis 6 artifact or a blue covenant (instead of just a covenant)
Bless the Nations - now X/X instead of numberless (X is number of good and evil brigades in play)
Jacob's Ladder - * ability now "Look at a hand or a Reserve"; Now specifies "If an opponent defeats a patriarch" (instead of "if a patriarch is defeated")
Potiphar's Wife - wording update (ability now includes the word "instead")
The Destroyer - may now play Exodus plagues regardless of brigade (not just from his play first)
Miriam - may now only exchange for a good card that involves music from reserve (added "good")
Indentured Servant - added "by an opponent" to the "unique Exodus hero defeated" condition
Brass Serpent - can now heal any number of heroes
Wasting Disease - holder now targets the shuffle
Kinsman Redeemer - now only restricts evil dominants
Covenant with David - enhancement now 5/2 (was numberless), enhancement now plays the site or fortress (instead of takes)
The Prophetess - now takes an OT human hero from deck, or reserve if Isaiah is in play (used to be vice-versa)
Devouring Philistines - added a "their" for clarity
Persian Conquerors - can no longer discard a Babylonian. Instead is now set aside all heroes in battle for 1 turn instead of withdrawing them. (Also the flying cat extends past the frame)
Persian Archers - now sets aside a hero in territory for 3 turns instead of discarding a hero in territory or set-aside
Cursed Egyptians - now has Egyptian identifier
Assyrian Laborers - now has Assyrian identifier
Lost Soul (Stumble) - requires a good card to be reserved
False Prophets - now has Prophet identifier
The Bear - now takes a Persian from deck (or reserve if x is <4) instead of vice versa
Out of Bethlehem - now uses the keyword "hand advantage"

There's a bunch of cards with new art and a lot of art that extends past the borders, so I recommend checking them out! Let me know if I missed anything!

ABSOLUTELY STELLAR summary, Bobbert! Thanks for taking the time to do that!

Indentured Servant - removed added "by an opponent" from the "unique Exodus hero defeated" condition

I believe you might have gotten this backwards. We needed to add the quoted phrase to keep this from being abused in combination with your own Grapes of Wrath.
