FFG Rulings

  • No. Senator Shrix's ability only refers to spending Æmber. Æmber is only spent when forging keys; if your Æmber would be lost, stolen, or captured, you cannot use Æmber on Senator Shrix.

If I have a Senator Shrix in play with 1 Æmber on it and my opponent plays Bumpsy, can I lose the Æmber off of Senator Shrix instead of from my pool?

Commentary

When an artifact with Æmber on it leaves play, the Æmber is returned to the common pool.

If there is enough Æmber on Monument to Shrix (or other cards with this effect under the control of the active player) combined with the Æmber in the active player's Æmber pool during the "Forge a Key" step, the active player must forge a key.
