Okay. I'm still confused as to how SoA's and SoB's get activated.
For example. I play Hel first turn. My opponent plays Methane. Now does my clan bonus work before his cause I played first or no?
How about if I play Kolos and someone play Toro. What happens then? I hope its not totally random. I'm just trying to figure it out so I can play to the best of my abilities.
Nightmare with bonus active will always stop the other card's bonus unless that card has SOB. Therefore, only Morlha and Leviatonn from Gheist can stop Nightmare's abilities.
On a side note:
Roots and Gheist with bonus active will always have their ability active unless playing Roots or Gheist (or Glorg/Dieter).
SOA = stop opponents ability
SOB = stop opponents bonus
It doesnt matter if you played your cards first. When your cards has SOB (like nightmare) then it will automatically stop your opponent's bonus, unless the oppont have SOB as well. Therefore, if you put SOB (nightmare) against SOA (as a bonus like Gheist) then Gheist's bonus wont be activated coz it is cancelled out by the SOB.
