And that's clearly intended, but the scroll says 'units deal double damage to idols' and units like Watcher and Loyal Darkling say 'Watcher deals 2 damage to a random opponent idol' and 'When Loyal Darkling is destroyed, it [referring to LD] deals 2 damage to your opponent's idol on the same row' respectively.

Because of this unclear wording, I had to test the behaviour! Imagine that! Me, actually playing the game! And all because the devs couldn't describe the effect of a scroll in a clear and concise manner.

Proposed fix: Just fit 'in combat' somewhere in the original sentence.

There may be alot of things that may need fixing, and right now I would prefer them spending the time on Important fixes. Alot of scrolls you wont know how they work, until you test them. Sometimes, I am still surprised by cards, and that is okay, because once you figure it out, that corrode doesn't work with darkling. Now you know, and you will never try it again. Not worth the devs time. :(

What? The only thing they have to do is reword it to say "Combat damage against idols is doubled". That's a five-second fix. There's no excuse to have misleading wording on scrolls. They'll still be left with plenty of time to balance Echoes.

I thought for a moment it worked during the combat phase, but I probably had a Wicked Being I forgot about.

I tested Watcher+Corrode with Blightbearer, Arthritis, Ember Bonds, Revenants and Copper Automatons and none of them gave the double idol damage.
