Ok i know this is totally rules lawyerish but I'm gonna ask anyway.
The Dark Reaper exarch power Fast Shot states that an Exarch can not use Fast Shot in the same turn as Crack Shot, however Maugan Ra is not an Exarch he is a Phornix Lord and he also has both powers.
Does this mean Maugan Ra, unlike a mere Exarch, can use both powers in the same turn?
Without the presence of the specific wording on hand (don't play space elves) but I'd say no. I believe that there are wordings that allude to Phoenix Lords being like Exarchs. Additionally, the basic rules sorting situation goes like this: 1) is there clear wording 2) can common sense give you an answer 3) majority rules (or tournament organizers, etc.)
This one probably makes it to number 2 but at that step you have two points. First, in the previous edition the powers were the same and they couldn't be mixed, ever. Secondly, the intent that the powers weren't to be mixed is made rather clear in their rules.

Well, using said rules-lawyer approach, I would absolutely let Maugan Ra use both powers in a turn....
However, he would gain absolutely no benefit from them, as the powers specifically mention that the Exarch is the one that gains the benefits of said powers.
honestly, the clear intent is that both can not be used in the same turn, the wording is unfortunate, but as stjohn points out, the effects allow the EXARCH to bla bla, so if he wants to play rules lawyers, so can you, he can use both powers but they have no effect
Everything you have been told is a lie!
Bottom Line is this: Use your common sense. Oh,and edit for A message from Pheonix Wright.
