May I Please Build a deck with only David's ?
« on: July 29, 2020, 11:08:48 AM »
Name (a Card/Card Type)

When a special ability directs a player to name a card, they can name any card that exists in the game, except a Lost Soul. The named card is only named for the special ability of that card, and the ability or modifier that targets the named card targets all versions with the same name.

Cards are considered to have the same name if adding, removing, or exchanging articles (a, an, the), prepositions (with, of, etc.) and punctuation (commas, apostrophes, etc.) results in the names being identical. Cards are not considered to have the same name if they have other differences, like many of those that appear on the duplicate cards list. If a player is unsure of the exact name of a version of a card on the duplicate cards list, they can describe other attributes of their desired target.

Does this mean you can play "Moses" in the same deck as "Moses, Friend of God" or is that considered the same name?
Another example would be "David, Heart After God" in the same deck as "David, God's King"

Sorry if this was answered already but just need some clarity.

Thanks

So if you can only play 1 version of a character that is the same person.  So while there are multiple different Moses and David cards you are only allowed to have 1 of any version in each 50 cards.

So David God's King is the same as David, Heart after God is the same as David, Outcasts' refuge is the same as David (WA/K) so you can only have 1.

There are 2 lines in the deck building rules in REG 7.0.0 that cover this:

Quote from: REG 7.0.0>Deck Building Rules
•Cards with special abilities that have the same name and same card art are limited to a maximum of 1 each per 50 cards in a deck.
•Cards (except generic characters and Lost Souls) with special abilities that have the same name and same card icon are limited to a maximum of 1 each per 50 cards in a deck.
•Cards (except generic characters) with special abilities that are listed as duplicate cards and have the same card icon are limited to a maximum of 1 each per 50 cards in a deck.

•Generic characters with special abilities that have the same name and card art are limited to a maximum of 1 each per 50 cards in a deck. If the card art is different, you may select a maximum of 1 each per 50 cards in a deck from each variant.

The first bolded bullet (same name and same card icon) covers cards like Peter, Goliath, and King of Tyrus that have been printed multiple times with the same name.
The second bolded bullet (listed as duplicate cards and same icon) covers cards like Moses and David, that have several different names now. In the document, "Duplicate cards" is a link to the duplicate cards entry in the Glossary, which has a list of the characters.
