This was back from may! But I still can't figure this out. Lelein does leave play first before Halbred, but why?
I checked the "damage resolution miniphase" in the rulebook:
Damage Resolution Mini-phase
1) Close Skill initiates if applicable and target HP <1 (but does not necessarily take effect immediately). Put the Close Skill at the end of the Close Cue. (If multiple Close Skill units are hit simultaneously, they will ALL go into the queue based on location on the battle grid, in numerical order.)
2) All the Close Skills in the Close Queue go off in order. If one triggers another Close Skill, add it to the Close Queue and continue. (Will trigger a nested HP Damage mini-phase or an LP Damage mini-phase if a Close Skill does HP or LP Damage.)
3) Units at 0 HP or below are CLOSED.
So Leilin's HP is below 0, enter this resolution mini-phase, her close skill activates. Then she sets Halbred to HP 0, his close skill gets added to the Queue (due to rule #2) and goes off. Then looking at this, from rule 3 shouldn't both Lelein and Halbred become closed at the same time? They don't finally become closed until after the damage is resolved in this miniphase, and when it gets to the end they should both become closed at once. Then, why doesn't the mass extinction rule take effect so that the unit in spot 1 gets removed before the unit in spot 2?
