I just want to confirm my understanding of a technical point.
A number of cards have the language "remove an X -> do XYZ". Off the top of my head, examples are spore shambler, drill-sgt, blooming ancient, tricycloid.
My question is, can this removal happen in batches or does it need to happen one at a time (potentially in a series)?
I can imagine 2 use cases where this point is significant.
1) a flagbearer must be targeted for any event where it is a valid target, if multiple runes can be removed as a "single event" only 1 would need to target the flagbearer --but if it is a series then the flagbearer is the only valid target.
2) similarly, if runes are "keeping the card alive" by buffing the unit --can these runes be given away? If runes must be given 1 at a time, as soon as the unit reached 0 HP it would die and all further runes would poof --but this wouldn't be the case if runes could be given in batches.
