Priest + Sewers
« on: 28 September 2018, 02:12:16 PM »
If i get sewers, and I play a priest, I do not get the +2 coins for the card I trash with sewers.
Is this a bug, or did I miss something?

E.g.: game #18772354

What you are missing is that the trashing instruction on Priest is first and the +2$ for every future card trashed comes afterwards.

If you play another trasher after Priest, you can use Sewers to trash an additional card and also get the +2$.

To make this even more explicite, the trashing due to Sewers in this example happens between the parts

"Trash a card from your hand." and

"For the rest of this turn, when you trash a card, +$2."

from Priest. Since the second part hasn't happened yet when handling Sewers, you don't get the additional +$2.

I was convinced this was a bug as well. Even though I can grasp the explanation, I think it’s very counter intuitive.

I guess reacting to the Priest trashing with Market Square and then trashing the gained Gold with Watchtower also doesn't trigger the +$2, right?

@markusin: Yes, that's also correct. Anything triggering from the initial Priest trash and causing an immediate additional trash (directly by Sewers or indirectly with Market Square/Watchtower) will be 'too early' for the Priest's second effect to notice.

As someone noted, due to the way Preview Kingdoms are made, this Priest/Sewers interaction will come up way less often once Renaissance is fully released. But of course it doesn't change the outcome of the interaction.
