So if I’m reading this card and understand the defense rules change, this card is one of the most insane card release for shadowcat. Unless I find an faq saying otherwise I’m pretty sure this will make you flip from solid to phased but then make you take no damage still since the attack “is defended” by you and thus you are defending against it. Given some of the other examples of how she works with certain cards, I’m pretty sure this is correct and maybe intended and these types of interactions are going to make her one of the most powerful heroes yet.
Hero Interrupt (attack/defense): When an enemy initiates an attack, deal 4 damage to that enemy.
This may be the best Protection card yet, definitely the best event. Two resources for 4 damage is great for the aspect, and it can be applied at critical times. I've won games, plural, getting to hit the villain with this card just before they killed me or got an encounter card phase I knew I couldn't get through.
