This question was asked on cardgamedb, and I didn't have a solid answer for it:
My opponent has Ser Edmure Tully (TCP) and uses his ability to shuffle an event back into his deck. I then play Melisandre's Favor on Edmure. Can I trigger his ability to shuffle something back into my deck? Nobody knew whether the 'Limit once per round' restriction on his ability applies to the copy of Edmure or to the player who currently controls him.
Looking around the FAQ, I found these entries:
Granted, the FAQ entry I found doesn't mention control changes, but it does say:
(4.22) Phase and Round Limits
A limit on an effect on a card that remains
in play through the resolution of the effect
applies to the copy of the card on which the
limit is printed.
actually, further on it says:
Limits always apply only to the player who
is using the ability. For instance, if one player
plays a copy of an event card with the text
"limit one per phase," that player's opponent
may also play his or her own copy of that
event during that phase
Their example is of cards each player would have separately instead of what happens during control changes so what am I missing to determine the outcome of that scenario?
