Regeneration
 
When a card would normally be squished, but for whatever reason is moved to the stash, I.e. The rangers power, is the card stashed face up? Also, if that happens," and the card has an ability that happens on survival, does that count as having survived?

Regenerate
A keyword ability. When this is squished, it is stashed face-down instead of moved to the discard pile. This is an interrupt that takes effect before the card is moved to the discard pile.

Also, it doesn't survive; otherwise, it wouldn't need to be regenerated. To regenerate, the condition of being squished must be met.

Re: Regeneration
 
If a monster is face-up in your stash, can you use it's Regenerate ability OR use a Rangers ability to prevent it from being Squished when damage is done to it while it's in the Stash?


I'm pretty sure you can do this and it's how I've always played it, but I wanted to be sure and I haven't found many discussions confirming it either way.

As seen above, a card with the Regenerate ability may trigger that ability upon being squished.

The Ranger's hero ability begins with "Use when one of your Monsters is squished." So it may also be triggered.

So you may use either one to Regenerate the squished monster. But note, they do not technically prevent the monster from being squished. They only change it's destination after being squished.

Thank you for the answer.

And that is an important clarification.

I was in a tournament recently that handled this incorrectly so "When a Monster is Squished" abilities weren't triggered if they were Regenerated.

Thanks again!
