Heh, glad someone else has spotted this. Have been using this combo to great success in my local playgroup and taking it to tourney in three days time.
0 cost for 4 influence with no drawback? Why, that's perfect for Westeros Bleeds! And who is left standing? Why, it's Beric!
Sadly this deck still has all the weaknesses that Beric decks have always had: Ghaston Grey, Milk of the Poppy and so on. However, right now I feel the meta is in the right place for this deck, so I'm going to give it a damn good go.
For the same deck (Brotherhood Martell), you also might want to consider Flea Bottom Scavenger, To The Spears, The Prince that Was Promised, A Taste for Blood, Red Vengeance.

Yea, sadly there are just so many point-n-click removals that make Beric a bad choice in my meta atm. Coldhands is in nearly every deck, Ygritte makes her rounds as well because of the Kingsguards. Also all the options you listed. Best of luck in your tourney though! I hope it works out for you and it takes them by surprise!

The FAQ entry you mention only effects "triggered effects". For the purposes of Doran's Favor, that effect will be whatever you played that cost you the influence.
Timing wise you kneel the attachment (4 influence) to pay for Westeros Bleeds, for example.
Step 1 - kneel attachment and play event
Step 2 - save/cancels allowed
Step 3 - resolve effect, assuming it wasn't cancelled. Any characters not saved and eligible to be effect (Beric is not) become moribund:discard
Step 4 - Passives such as "discard attached character" from Doran's Favor. Beric cannot be discarded, so he ignores it.
Step 5 - Responses
Step 6 - Moribund cards leave play.
