The actions that are main effect of Marvels Told are executed in the order:Ready to His Will wrote:Playable on an Orc, Troll, Giant, Slayer, or Man hazard creature with one strike for each of its attacks. All attacks of the creature are canceled. The creature becomes an ally under the control of any character in the company that now taps. It has a mind of 1, 1 ally , prowess equal to its normal prowess minus 7, and a body equal to 8. Place this card with the creature.
target non-environment permanent-event or long-event is discarded,
target sage makes a corruption modified by -2.
So if targets are Lure of Senses on Arwen and Arwen, and Arwen does not have any other sources of corruption, then even in worst case (dice roll result is 2) she will not be eliminated. Situation would be different, if the two actions created by Marvels Told would by simultaneous. Then Arwen would make cc - 2 still having 2 CPs.
What if actions from Ready to His Will would be executed in order:
All attacks of the creature are canceled,
The creature becomes an ally under the control of any character in the company that now taps,
Place this card with the creature.
After execution of "All attacks of the creature are canceled" the creature would be discarded. Remaining actions could not happen.
This is probably not what was intended by creators of the card.
I think that at least two first actions should be executed simultaneously.
However there is no convention of tagging the action that should be executed simultaneously.
I am preparing to make some erratum proposals in the next year for Ready to His Will and some other cards that (in my opinion) create simultaneous actions (aka "joint actions"). I am considering some possibilities of tagging such actions (e.g. separating them with semicolon) but I want to avoid a collision, that could occur if given method is already used for other purposes.
