Dont try this at home
« on: September 01, 2017, 07:11:55 PM »
This may seem like a stupid question. I know what a activated card effect is but to use this card does it actually have to have the ace symbol in it? Cause a lot of the older cards dnt seem to have the symbol

If a card in your ring has a cost to activate it (discarding, putting it in your ringside, ect) it IS an ACE and can be reversed by Don't Try This at Home. It doesn't matter if it has the ACE symbol on it or not.

To elaborate further, the older cards don't have the symbol because it hadn't been thought up yet. If I'm reading the set lists correctly, it first appeared on cards in the Lethal Library set, set 15. As Hurricane said, if a cost is paid to activate the card's ability, you may then DTTAH, symbol or no.
