Another SFX like that is the Beast's "Oh My Stars and Garters." But what if the Beast is being attacked by the Doom Pool and wants to use his SFX in his reaction? Frex, when fighting The Void. How does it work then? Borrow the die before the Watcher rolls?
I would have him borrow the die after the doom pool was rolled, so it doesn't change the result of the roll. Borrowing from the doom pool is more potent on the action roll because the pool is smaller. So if you're rolling against the doom pool, it's not rolling as many dice. If you're rolling against a Watcher character, you're removing the highest die so they can't use it.
On a reaction roll, the die has been rolled and probably used, borrowing it won't help any. IMO, anyway.
