Vicious Struggle
Basic Action Card
Until your next turn, deal your opponent 1 damage for each damage you take that doesn't come from Vicious Struggle.


The current understanding from most judges is that it is a 1:1 "bounce" of damage from you to your opponent, i.e. if they field a Gobby that does 5 damage to you, Vicious Struggle deals them 5 damage back. If they have a Human Torch active and field 3 Kobolds, doing 3 instances of 1 damage to you, Vicious Struggle also does 3 instances of 1 damage (right after each instance of damage).

Many judges will rule that because Vicious Struggle is "used," and is not a "continuous" die, its ability stacks. So if you used two Vicious Struggle dice, then when your opponent deals 5 damage via Lantern Ring, Vicious Struggle deals 10. Obviously this is something to find out before the match starts.

An interesting side effect of the wording of Vicious Struggle is that "pay life" events do not trigger the effect, but purposefully taking damage, i.e. Silver Surfer global, does.

An important note: WKRF ruled that VS can be used to result in a tie: http://win.wizkids.com/bb/viewtopic....e73889205da132
