During an opponents turn, each time they declare they are deploying a card, using an ability (from a card on their Canvas) or declaring an attack, you may use DISPOSE once as Reaction. Once you have declared you're using your DISPOSE, the DISPOSE effect happens first, then the original deployment, ability or Attack (If it can still happen). When choosing to React in a multiplayer game, declare and resolve each use of DISPOSE in turn order, ending with the original player's deploy, ability or Attack. (If it can still happen). The original player cannot re-react to their own card being reacted to.
If by using DISPOSE as a Reaction, a new card would be deployed (E.g. Alchemists Tincture), the new card only gets played after all other deployments, abilities and attacks have concluded.
