These are questions that have been asked to be ruled on specifically for this Tournament. The answers provided are from the Head Judge, and will be how these interactions will be played for this Tournament. The original posts can be found on the Facebook Event Page, and have been reprinted with permission to help spread the word.
Nova Corps Uniform Ruling (Any Version)
Here is the relevant text shared by each version from “Dice Masters Keyword Clarification” page: “Continuous: Attach this die to target character die. While attached, that character die….”
Based on this amended text and rulings plus similar wording of Ring of Magnetism, Nova Corps Uniform may be attached to an opponent controlled character die.
Poison Ivy: A New Leaf’s Global Ruling
Poison Ivy: A New Leaf
While Poison Ivy is active, when an opponent purchases the last die on a card, deal that opponent 3 damage.
Global: Pay mask mask. Once on your turn, you may remove a die on any card from the game. You may not remove the last die on the card.
Madame Web: Cassandra Webb (Uncommon)
When Madame Web attacks, move target opposing character die to her character card until end of turn.
Until an official ruling is made clarifying the intent of Poison Ivy’s global, then taking the wording as is, it can be used to remove a die on a card from the game even if that die did not start the game on that card. For example a die placed on Madame Web by her own effect. Another example is Eye of Agamotto (any version) which also gets placed on a card by its own effect (“When used, place this die on a Basic Action Card…”).
Black Widow: Agent Ruling
Black Widow: Agent
While Black Widow is active, reduce damage from opposing character’s abilities by 1. Your opponent can’t target Black Widow with Global Abilities.
Due to Black Widow only specifying the source of the ability damage she reduces, her affect would reduce all ability damage from opposing character dice regardless of what the damage is being directed at. That is to say, she would reduce damage from opposing characters that is directed at you, your character dice, your opponent, and your opponent’s character dice
