Wave 8: Waste|Lands (ver 1.0)
Concept by Team Bayformers
Once per game, when one of your characters with a Motorcycle
mode takes attack damage and isn't KO'd 🠪 You may move all damage counters from that character to this. If you do, KO that character.
At the start of your turn 🠪 You may return a character with a Motorcycle
mode KO'd by this stratagem to the battlefield fully repaired.
When that character returns to the battlefield from the KO area 🠪 Move all damage counters from this to that character and flip this.
No. Rapid Response Cycle only gives a character the Motorcycle trait while that character is in bot mode. While the character is in alt mode, the condition to have the Motorcycle trait is not met, and thus the character does not have a Motorcycle mode, meaning you could not use The Great Escape on them.
Stratagems are played concurrently with the starting team for a game. This is required otherwise cards like Master Converter and Aerial Enhancements would not effect the starting team, leading Windsweeper to be sad when Blitzwing and Tracks don't count as Planes.
No. For example, if Private Pteraxadon’s Binary Edgewing Scythe upgrade mode removes the base defense from a defending Windblade, Combiner Hunter, it would not remove the +1 from the Camien Toughness stratagem.
You can play up to one stratagem for each different character, trait, or faction listed on the stratagem, as long as your starting team includes that character, trait, or faction. For example, if your starting team is all Autobots and includes Optimus Prime - Legendary Warrior, you can play both Heroic Spotlight and Duty & Honor.
Stratagems go on the battlefield. At the beginning of the game, as you reveal your team, you also reveal your stratagems.
Flipping a stratagem essentially turns its ability off. This happens on one-time abilities to remind you that you've already used them.
No. Stratagems are never put into your deck.
Yes. Each one counts as one of your ten battle cards in the sideboard.
Treat it like a regular star card.
