Community Manager Whirthun has been answering many questions about Grand Tournament cards and the Inspire mechanic.

@CM_Whirthun Hi, SkyCap'n Kragg's text say "for each friendly Pirate" are they on board, in hand, or both ? Thx ^^
@CM_Whirthun Can tuskarr totemic summon 4 basic totem ?by hero power?? Or only collectable card pool like Recombob?
.@yaki50 Tuskarr Totemic can summon ANY totem. That includes both Hero Power Totems, and Totems like Mana Tide, Totem Golem, et cetera.
@CM_Whirthun Does Maiden of the Lake's effect last after she dies?
@CM_Whirthun I read that Inspire triggers before the hero power. If you play Heal on Coliseum Manager would you draw a card from Northshire?
.@DDssdffds Inspire triggers AFTER the Hero Power. Northshire Cleric draws you a card and then Coliseum Manager goes back into your hand.
@CM_Whirthun @DDssdffds What happens when you ping the Coliseum Manager to 0 life? Does it die or return to your hand?(Just for BM purposes)
.@Gidejong @DDssdffds Coliseum Manager dies, as the Hero Power activates before the Inspire effect.
Since numerous people have asked: Cards affected by Wilfred Fizzlebang remain zero mana even after he dies.
