     which brings up a question ive been meaning to ask. can you respond to an action that doesnt happen?



    dcdennis said:

    meaning if both players pass actions in that window, can you still respond with this event?

    No. Remember that the "Player Action Windows" that appear on the flowcharts are not action windows. They are placeholders to tell you where players can take actions if they choose to. It is the actual initiation of an effect that opens an action window. If no one initiates anything, there is no active window, so there is no place to Respond.


    So, for example, if you don't use this Response in the "start phase" framework window that begins the challenge phase, and all players pass on triggering an action in the first "pre-challenge" player action window, you won't get a chance to play this event until the Response step of the "initiate challenge" framework action that begins the first challenge.

    Just to confirm, though, I CAN say "I'm responding to the starting of x phase by playing this" even if there are no other responses to the phase beginning?  And also confirm that this would happen before Shadows?

  2. @DCDennis: If you show up, I will buy you TWO beers.  That should help make up for some of the flight cost! ;)


    Re: Maesters of War, I don't love the deck but I hate to see people not be able to play what they want due to limited card pool.  I will happily lend your friend 3x Maester of War.

    Re: the FAQ, Lucas announced that it is indeed in effect- TftE is really the only relevant part, since there is not a Melee tournament.

    TLS and TftE is still good, just not *as* good.

    BTW Penny is an absolute beast now. Overnight went from being a pretty useful card to probably my new favorite card of all time.



    Penny? What did they do that affects Penny? What am I missing?



    Was wondering about the Penny comment too…


    TLS + TFTE is still a one-sided draw cap, right?

    I like the changes and am happy with the FAQ.  I wish that it would've been released a little sooner, but if the option is no FAQ or a late FAQ, I'll take this FAQ. 

    This is pretty much my reaction as well.  I am writing up a comprehensive list of changes in this & the tourney guide, because I think a lot of things won't be discussed.

  5. I know that a lot of people say that happens, but I haven't seen a very successful 'tacked on' Maester build.  The ones I see winning are Bara Maesters, Martell Maesters and Targ Maesters, all of which definitely take advantage of their maester-ness.  That said, I know Eric B won a big tourney with the Lanni 1-chain maester deck, so maybe it's just that it's not a West Coast thing.

  6. Here is a list that I put together for one of my friends when he asked a similar question:
    Core Set- 4 decks for Lannister, Baratheon, Stark, Targaryen- All cards x1

    Deluxe Expansions for every house- All cards x3
    Kings of the Sea (Greyjoy)
    Princes of the Sun (Martell)
    Lords of Winter (Stark)
    Kings of the Storm (Baratheon)
    Queen of Dragons (Targaryen)
    Lions of the Rock (Lannister)

    Rules say that you cant have more then one copy of a unique card in play (except for duplicates). Attachment of Shaggydog is not a copy of character Shaggydog, so using both is according to the rules. Am I right?

    Uniqueness rules are based on title.  So even though they are different card types, you may only have one or the other in play at any given time.

    I have a related question: If I anticipate that I might draw, say, a Baratheon character, is there anything that prevents me from triggering a reducer (Seat of Power, for instance) prior to triggering Val and have it reduce a character I draw due to Val (which would be the next Baratheon character I play, since I must if I can)? I know there's no "pool" of Influence like mana in M:TG, but does lack that extend to reduction effects?



    There is nothing that prevents this, no. Totally legal play.


    Edit: Fristed!

    Short of banning Maester's Path, nothing in an FAQ posted in the next two weeks could be so serious as to undo anyone's prep. for Gencon, especially when you consider the usual "1 week" practice.




    While I don't think banning TMP is likely, making one of the links or the agenda itself a restricted card seems very much on the table and could definitely alter prep, I'd think.  Also the question of whether or not VD and  CD chapter packs are legal is a bit important.  Not sure what the '1 week' practice refers to, as I've been playing < a year.  And lastly, the possibility of Griff being 'House Targ only' like all the other chargendas could change some stuff.
