Aumakua says “Whenever you expose a card or access cards.” Explaining to someone that zero counts as a number of cards, not “the absence of the being of cards” is about as baffling as attending a lecture on French philosopher Jacques Derrida.
Anyone with a grasp on the real world would probably tell you that Archives is empty, Aumakua says “cards,” and so Aumakua should not, in any sane way, get a counter.
Boggs needs to go back in time and clean up the mechanics for “access” and “access replacement.” Just make access a more clearly defined step and not tied to the existence of cards.
Here’s another dumb one: Top Hat says “Whenever you make a successful run on R&D, instead of accessing cards, you may choose 1 of the top 5 cards of R&D and access it.”
Instead of accessing, you access. Got it, that’s all cleared up. How… elegant.
