I was wondering about this ruling on the Limit: X page:
When a card specifies that Limit: X applies to one way of creating
tokens, that limit applies to all ways of creating that kind of token in
the whole game. — sharpo
It sounds ominous, but what does it mean in the practical terms?
There are only four cards that have Limit: X ability (not counting the Bloodburn which does runes instead of tokens and thus isn’t even covered by the Limit: X rulings page): Harmony, Bird’s Nest, Sirus Quince, and Hive. Of these, Harmony has only one way of creating tokens, and Bird’s Nest has “Limit: 2” on both abilities that summon Birds. Is my understanding correct that the quoted ruling’s sole job is to make sure that “Limit: X” applies to the Arrives ability of Sirus Quince and Hive in addition to the activated ability where it’s printed?
