FFG Rulings

  • Yes, they forge a key. Forging is not optional if a player has enough æmber to forge, including æmber on cards like Senator Shrix that may be spent as if it were in their pool. As the active player, you make all necessary decisions unless otherwise specified, so you choose how much of the æmber they will spend from their pool and how much of it they will spend from Senator Shrix.

My opponent has 5 æmber in their pool, a Senator Shrix (WC 193) with 5 æmber on it, and a Keyfrog (MM 369). Their key cost is 6. If I destroy their Keyfrog, do they forge a key? If so, where does the æmber come from?

  • 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?
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.

Commentary

If there is enough Æmber on Senator 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.

  • Arcana Advises: All Æmber must come from player pools. Note that the Tiebreakers take place in a "post-game" phase, so the game is over, the tiebreakers are used to determine who receives the win in the tournament.
