Okay, I'd like to get confirmation on this because it HUGELY affects how powerful the Berzerk's favorite pet is.
Can Sprinter KO from 9 life or not?
Some sources claim that the bonus activates after the ability and thus, he cannot KO. But I thought abilities always activated in order from the highest min to the lowest? Has anybody actually tried this out and is willing to confirm the result of Sprinter's ability?
While you can finish the match by removing the remainder of your opponent's life, it isn't technically a knock-out.
Yes, he can. I have no idea why someone started that rumour.
Isn't it ability first then bonus ?
It's highest min then lowest min, as demonstrated by a bunch of cards such as Ace, Don, and so forth.
I haven't tried it, but yeah he would.
I believe you're right Frowns. Minus-life effects activate in order of the highest minimum first. For the same reason, a card like Robb Cr reduces power to 4 before the -2 bonus.
