Kuushik, the Thousand-cord - Summon as a surprise?

Post by Astrid Varelse » Tue Jan 06, 2015 12:13 am

I was doing some digging and having surprise as a sub-type was really starting to bother me as I thought more about the wording of skills

After a quick lookup I found an example for a wording trap that I was thinking of:
Say hello to [c]Kuushik, the Thousand-cord[/c].

"Play this skill only on your turn, once per turn."

Could I use [c]Kuushik, the Thousand-cord[/c]'s effect as to respond (As a surprise) on my turn?

For example, on my turn, if an opponent activated an effect which makes me climax target furre I control (I choose), could I react by summoning a Herm Fox Furre token and target it?

Activated skills, by default, can be activated at Surprise speed. An exception would be an activated skill that said "play this skill only any time you could play a Haven" or something like that. So long as you're within the specific timing restrictions of Kuushik's skill, then yes, you may activate it whenever you want within those restrictions.
"I play it for the game mechanics."
