Rules and Rulings

  • Cards summoned from the discard pile as if they were in your hand are still considered located in the discard pile when summoned. Any card effect that would activate upon summoning a card from your hand would not work on the cards summoned with Optimal Illusion's card effect.



Written by Game Designer J. Evan Raitt:

Optimal Illusion was becoming a very favorite Beast once it was shown off, and I wanted to try and fit its abilities from the original card as possible, and while some of it carried over, there were just some card effects that I wanted to add and they needed a home.
