The situation: Baratheon vs Targaryen
On the Baratheon table side:
2 cards on shadows
1 shadow enchantress in play
1 bearer of the light in the discard pile (str 1, 0 cost weenie)
Targaryen shows Threat from the north
Baratheon shows Melisandre's Scheme
- Shadow enchantress reads: If there is at least 1 card in Shadows, Asshai characters gain a icon and get +1 STR for each card in Shadows.
- Threat from the north reads: All characters get -1 STR and are discarded from play (cannot be saved) if their STR is 0.
If I understand correctly:
- there are two passive effects: gaining the military icon and the chars getting -1 STR
- and two constantly checking effects, getting the +1 STR for each card in shadows and discarding chars from play if they get to 0 STR.
So, if the Baratheon player during the marshalling phase chooses to play a Bearer of the light from the discard pile, when it would enter play it would gain a military Icon and be reduced to 0 strength instantly.
Then, the two constantly checking effects would kick in, and the first player would choose in wich order they resolve, having to choose if the Bearer of the light lives or is discarded from play.
Is this correct?
Many thanks in advance
