King Jehu + Asahel

While reading John's T1 championship write-up, I read this:

"I do recall one of my early rescues used King Jehu + Asahel to snipe a Nebuchadnezzar from territory after he blocked me the previous turn."

That got me thinking...  If Jehu exchanges with Asahel, does Asahel's ability have to complete before Jehu's "discard an evil royal human" happens (due to Jehu's ability being cost-benefit)?  If so, could John have chosen Nebby to block w/ Asahel, then discarded Nebby with Jehu?

There's been a mistake.  You've accidentally given me the food that my food eats.

That is how that interaction plays out, and it is what I did, I went back and re-read the report, I wasn't super clear. (I wrote it at 11pm the day of)

This combo seems like it could work with Complainers, Violent Men, and chariot cards
