9.3.2 Mirage represents two independent abilities. The first of these applies while the Mirage Location Card is the Active Location. In this case the Mirage ability means “If this Location would be placed on the bottom of your Location Deck, instead put it onto the Battleboard in any space. Any other Mirage Location on the Battleboard at this time is returned to the bottom of its owner’s Location Deck.” This ability does not start a Burst and cannot be responded to. The Mirage Location will remain in the chosen space until removed by another Mirage Location or other game effect.
so yes the mirage placement is tied to the locations effects so if they are removed it doesn't go on the battleboard
18.104.22.168. After the base and bonus damage done by the Attack is calculated the instructions found in the text box of the Attack are carried out. These instructions are performed in the order that they are printed on the card, from top to bottom.
22.214.171.124. Additional Attack Card Damage. Attack Cards may deal additional damage based on effects in their text box. This damage is added to the Initial Attack Card Damage (see section 8.6.1) to form the Total Attack Card Damage.
man this one still comes up huh? no marksmans preps attack damage is attack damage just like every other card, this misconception was due to an error with the original site.
Glossary: Activated Ability: This class of abilities represents those that have some associated cost to activate such as the removal of a Mugic counter. Activated abilities are typically written in the format Pay (cost): to do (effect). Unless an activated ability specifies otherwise, its effects end at the end of the turn during which the activated ability resolved.
marksman's prep's effect can be used even in dranikus threshold, it is considered an effect of the attack and not a separate ability. No attacks to date use any activated ability, all effects on attacks resolve when the attack does.
126.96.36.199. If a player has multiple mandatory actions that would need to be fulfilled simultaneously the player may choose which action to fulfill first. If after that action is taken the other mandatory action remains that action must be taken at the next legal opportunity.
so none really have "priority" the player forced to do the actions gets to choose, so multiple mandatory actions on your opponent is usually better for them.
hope that covers it all.
