We are playing with core set plus the Greyjoy and Martell expansions and have found a few cards that seem grossly overpowered given our card pool and knowledge of the game. As it is, a Targaryen-only plot is the only card we can think of offhand to mess with attachments, and there don't seem to be a whole lot of ways of simply removing characters outside of Martell, so aside from relying on reset plots, I'm not sure what to do for most of our decks when cards like these come into play:
* Nymeria / Lightbringer -- If you can save a character every turn with the same card, you are almost never going to lose characters except to 2-claim plots and if you block a deadly attack, which is easily avoidable.
* Taste for Blood -- Getting 1 power for every lost challenge on defense wasn't enough for 1 gold, it's also non-unique and +1 strength. And as I understand it, the character doesn't even have to be in the battle to get the power. Unless you have a ton of renown, it is hard to pull past this.
Is there some strategy / cards / rules we're overlooking to mitigate the power of abilities such as these, or do we just need to buy more cards to find answers? I love the game and especially my Martell deck, but I have to admit it feels cheap to win by playing Taste for Blood and sitting back to let them earn half my power for me.
