Lasting effects

From Archon Arcana - The KeyForge Wiki

Some card abilities create effects or conditions that affect the game for a specified period of time, such as “until the start of your next turn,” “for the remainder of the turn,” or “the next time.” These are called lasting effects.

Lasting effects are treated as constant abilities that are active for the duration specified by the effect. A lasting effect persists even if the card that created the effect leaves play.

If a lasting effect refers to “the next time,” it applies to the next time the text that follows that phrase begins to happen during the current turn.

If a lasting effect affects cards in play, it applies to all cards in play during the specified period, regardless of whether they were in play at the time the lasting effect was established.
