Rules

  • The module targeted by this ability is chosen at random among all tapped modules you don’t control.
  • When you gain control of a module this way, the module is moved to your memory already tapped.
  • When the target module would be put into the discard pile, it is put into their owner’s discard pile.
  • You can only link and hyperlink modules of a domain that matches one of youractive Guardians.
  • A module that changes controller can produce resources for, and be sacrificed by, its new controller, even if the module cannot be linked.

Chaos sets a fundamental limit to the precision of our predictions: similar initial conditions can make a system evolve into completely different futures. Chaotic systems are indeed unpredictable. But they are not random. Their evolution is determined by the strange attractor: an inspirational, mathematical description of chaos.
