  4. As I thought Ktom and doulos2k. Couldn't remember the actual rule, thanks for pointing it out ktom.
  5. If I have three Asshai in play and Intolerant Priest in my dead pile can I use Melisandre's ability to put him back into play? His ability is passive and with three Asshai under my control he gains the holy crest. My thought is that he then can be put into play from the dead pile with Mel's abilty. Thoughts anyone? My belief why this can happen. Cards in the dead and discard pile don't turn off their passive abilities. Look at Theon or even the Knight of Summerhall. So, with this in mind the Intolerant Priest is gaining a Holy crest.
  6. This is of course assuming your opponent doesn't have more power than you because they would win as well and then it comes down to first player to decide who wins.
  7. Thanks! As I thought!
  8. If Randyll Tarly and Willas Tyrell are both in the same challenge together (on the same side), would Randyll count his strength?

  11. I still think that a draw should be 2 points for both players. I understand this was probably put into place for two maester decks playing each other but as I stated on my thread about this particular issue, that if time is called why on earth would I try to get power that would bring me to a draw when I could take a mod loss get the same point (one) and my opponent would get four. This would increase my strength of schedule in the long run and keep one of us from being destroyed in the rankings for the next round. Making no difference between a draw and a mod loss is frankly ridiculous. A mod win has a range of 14-0 power to 14-13 power. That is a large range for change. But if I match my opponents power, let's say 14-14, I get the same points for a draw. This only hurts good players trying to win the game. They want to diminish collusion, but this scoring idea of one point for each player on a draw will only lead to more collusion. Just make it two points and move on. The total points for the match is less then the five for a full match and so each player has been "punished" for the non-win but rewards both players for playing for the win. Two points helps no one in the greater scope of tourney points and still has the negative effects of a draw. Two points in comparison to the Five for a win is mediocre. Please FFG realize this mistake is easily rectified.
  12. They want to stop collusion and not playing the game through but this punishes players for trying their hardest. If at time, why would I do challenges to get a draw when I would get the same amount of points for a mod loss and actually help my strength of schedule for losing. Seems silly.
  13. Seems more reasonable to give each player two points. That is such a big differential between the mods and the draw. It really punishes the players for getting a draw. And you get the same points for a mod loss so why even get a draw.
  14. In the new tournament rules it states that a draw is only one point for each player. This is the same as a Modified loss. Is this a typo or is this legitimate?
  15. Yes that is the one I'm looking for.
