"Card: Blinding Light

Effect Text: “All of your Unicorn cards are considered Basic Unicorns with no effects.”

This card has been one of our biggest sources of confusion, second only to Pandamonium.

The intent of this Downgrade card is that no Unicorn card in your stable or entering your stable has, or can trigger, any effect text. All effect text on all of your Unicorn cards in your stable, as well as any that enter your stable, shall be ignored as long as Blinding Light is also in your stable.

Additional Clarifications

A) Baby Unicorns cards are immune to this effect. Baby Unicorn cards can only exist in the Stable or Nursery (and never in your hand or the discard pile). They cannot otherwise be returned to your hand, destroyed, or sacrificed as they would instead be returned to the nursery.

B) This Downgrade card’s effect is continuous and is applied to any Unicorn card that is in your stable, would be played into your stable, or otherwise enters your stable, regardless of source.

C) This Downgrade card’s effect applies prior to all entering stable effects that would be triggered for cards entering your stable and negates them.

D) This card has no interaction with the Queen Bee Unicorn card. The Queen Bee Unicorn card states, “Basic Unicorn cards cannot enter any player’s Stable except yours.” Blinding Light specifies that your Unicorn cards are considered “Basic Unicorns” but not that they are considered “Basic Unicorn cards.” This is an important distinction- your Magical Unicorn cards are still considered Magical Unicorn cards that are Basic Unicorns. As such, these cards are not impacted by Queen Bee Unicorn’s effect." Blinding Effect and Masquerade Effect

  • When a unicorn card enters a stable
    • Blinding Effect which has priority negates the unicorn card effect text and is considered a "basic unicorn" (instead of unicorn).
    • Masquerade Effect then gives immunity to the now "basic unicorn" it is now considered a "Panda", "cat", "otter", "shit", or reindeer" with its card effect. (It is now protected from the Blinding Effect).
    • The unicorn card has already entered the stable with negated card effect text so it will not trigger any enter effect. (The card did not enter with any effect text.)
