This should be Duelyst 101, but it is horribly confusing to me. We all know the high-level picture: the BBS becomes available at the third turn and then at alternated turns, up to 9 mana when it becomes available every turn.
However, it seems the counter on the UI does not always provide accurate information in non-standard cases. A few questions:
if I don’t use the BBS, it stays available during the next turn and it may become usable twice in a row even before 9 mana, right? This means that, as player 1, the BBS refreshes at 3, 5, 7, 9, but it can be used at 4 if not used at 3. Right?
how is the interaction with the Cryptographer? Are all the extra BBS uses in addition to standard uses, or does it “desync” the expected refresh times?
I think it would be very important to fix the UI to provide reliable information. For the time being, a quick and dirty recipe to plan when the BBS will be available would be appreciated.
