Commentary

Cards put into play by another card's effect (rather than being played from an out-of-play area such as the hand or discard pile) are not considered "played" cards. If an ability “puts” a card “into play,” bonus icons and “Play:” abilities on the card put into play do not resolve.

Outstanding Issues

There is an outstanding issue concerning Lifeward.
  • Arcana Advises: Yes in both cases. Explo-Rover's ability acts as a replacement effect for how the card can be played. During a turn where Star Alliance is the active house, Explo-Rover can be played as an upgrade to get around play restrictions such as Lifeward. Explo-Rover's ability can also resolve for the purpose of resolving Matter Maker's ability, allowing it to be played as an upgrade as if it belonged to the active house.
