With the latest chapter pack cycle I've noticed Lannister has been getting a lot of the learned crest characters. I was pretty disappointed with Hugor Hill and also feel like the two new learned crest characters "Merchants Widow" and "Selhory's Customer Officer" were not all that great and quite weak compared to cards the other houses are getting.


I have been trying to think of a way to make a deck out of what FFG has been providing Lannister lately and this was about the best I could come up with. Using Cersei and Littlefinger for non kneeling attacks, then boosting additional intrigue and power challenges with Myrcella, the Schemes of the Scholars plot and citadel event cards. Im not sure if this deck will work but going to be play testing it for the next week or so.

What do you guys think ? Anyone spotting a mechanic that might work well with the learned crests that I am missing ?

As you are looking for cards that combine Learned characters with Lannister, what about Restrict and Restrain?

You can restrict yourself and your opponent to three characters able to participate in challenges this turn, and then use assort Lannister kneeling effects to kneel the characters they choose to use that turn.

Is core Tyrion being used over LOTR Tyrion for added card draw? As the extra Military icon could be advantageous, as it is sorely lacking in your deck.

It also never feels right seeing a Lannister deck without the Brothel in there ;)
