Ummh, 5KE Viper always felt a little underwhelming. I would prefer to see either the ITE or Promo Viper as a reprint with the 5KE, WED or ACoS artwork.
I can´t imagine that the WED Viper will be reprinted anytime soon, remeber teh doomed mechanic was rotated with WED block and the WED Viper was really overpowered winning to many games alone.
@Lars: Thanky you for the link, i already knew it. It was more a general statement.
Yeah, having not played AGoT back in Winter Ed, I totally forgot he has that silly little doomed crow icon. He is really strong though. If they just used the art, I'd still be happy. Next to the newest Daenerys, and Rhaegar... the 5KE and WED Vipers are some of my all time favorite character art.
5KE isn't the most overwhelming card, but I think he'd definitely be playable in the LCG format, and had an impact just the same. There really hasn't ever been a BAD Viper that I can tell looking back at the history of the game. Some are just MORE better. ;-)
And hear-hear to the needing more cancels. Viper's Bite would be a nice fit as mentioned.
