Shouldn't isolate on vendor chewy prevent revives?

    The CGDF is recruiting. Say hi in our Discord! https://discord.gg/AmStGTH
  • Can't be revived is only from Raid Boss Traya. Playable Traya does not prevent revives.

    but that revive is on the person who is isolated, hes talking about killing someone else but having the isolated character still revive them passively
  • Isolate states : "Can't gain buffs; can't attack or gain positive effects out of turn; allies can't attack or gain positive effects during this unit's turn"

    In this case Zalbaar died during an enemy turn and VanChew was the target of Isolate so there was nothing in the description of Isolate that could have blocked the revive as neither Zalbaar was the target nor it was VanChew's turn.
    If Zalbaar had been the target I think it would have worked like Isolate on Sion having Hatred : he couldn only revive on his own turn.
    Isolate blocks Daka's revive ability as it is used on her own turn.
    Isolate doesn't block Zombies' ally auto-revive for the same reason it doesn't block VanChew's

    I see no inconstitency

    Wouldn't receiving a revive be considered a positive effect?

    Vandor's unique allows allies to be revived, which is a positive effect. Hence, being isolated should prevent that positive effect from being activated.

    I agree with OP on this.

    Read the ability again.

    Vandor can't do A or B, Allies can't do C or D.

    Him passively reviving someone outside of his turn is WAI. Not A, B, C, or D.

    Isolated Daka reviving Allies needs it to be HER turn. Hence why it's blocked. It meets D.

    Isolated Sion w/Hatred dying and not reviving is WAI, it's him gaining a passive effect outside of HIS turn. It meets B.

    @Its_not_a_moon next time Isolate Zaalbar. Then it will WAI in your favour. He'll die and stay dead because it meets B.
