  1. Hi Danigral, We do have access to all the cards. Shipping takes a while though as it can range from 2 to 6 weeks depending where the order was placed.
  2. Cuki has actually won more than once with his Lannister PBtT. I blame the Starks that folded so quickly to him. Haha!
  3. 3rd Joust of 2013 Date: Saturday, March 30 Place: The Appraisery, Greenhills, San Juan, Metro Manila, Philippines 1st: Cuki - Lannister, Power Behind the Throne - Castellan of the Rock 2nd: Patrich - Stark, No Agenda - Bolton Refugee 3rd: Mike - Stark, No Agenda - Bolton Refugee 4th: Kiko - Stark, Siege of Winterfell - No Quarter 5th: Brian - Greyjoy, House of Dreams - Fear of Winter 6th: Ponci - Baratheon, No Agenda - Knight of Flowers 7th: Joscar - Targaryen, No Agenda - Long Lances 8th: Nikko - Greyjoy, Black Sails - Fear of Winter 9th: Pau - Martell, Knights of the Hollow Hill - Burning on the Sand 10th: Mikko - Targeryen, Knights of the Hollow Hill - Hatchlings Feast 11th: Mark - Targaryen, Maesters Path - Maesters Path 12th: Arvin - Targaryen, House of Dreams - Refugee of the Plains 13th: Victor - Stark, House of Dreams - Bear Island 14th: Peng - Baratheon, The Stewards - Knight of Flowers 15th: Richard - Stark, Siege of Winterfell - Narrow Escape 16th: Koko - Baratheon, No Agenda - Knight of Flowers 17th: Aerol - Baratheon, Knights of the Realm - Fury of the Stag 18th: Seth - Targaryen, House of Dreams - Long Lances 19th: Edu - Greyjoy, House of Dreams - Retaliation House Count: Targeryen - 5 Stark - 5 Baratheon - 4 Greyjoy - 3 Martell - 1 Lannister - 1 Neutral - 0 Agenda: House of Dreams - 5 Knights of the Hollow Hill - 2 Black Sails - 1 Power Behind the Throne - 1 Siege of Winterfell - 2 Maesters Path - 1 The Stewards - 1 Knights of the Realm - 1 No Agenda - 5 This tourney had the best tournout in AGoT history in my playgroup both for CCG and LCG with 19 players and there were still at least three who were MIA. Considering that I only sent out the invitation three days before the tourney, the turnout was a very pleasant surprise. I sincerely hope we get this large a crowd or more in the next tournaments. Stark and Targ had great representation as each had five players with those Houses with Stark getting 2nd, 3rd and 4th places. I wasn't able to get a look at all the decks and their mechanics but I have an idea on how each deck ran on the input of how the matches turned out and the opponents' feedback. Cuki brought his tried and tested Lannister PBtT hyper kneel deck. He crushed the Starks, Mike and Rich and discarded Nikko's hand and controlled his characters before Greyjoy control got the lockdown. I wasn't able to get a glimpse of Patrich's deck but I heard it was fast and big characters which means Boltons. He cruised through his Baratheon opponents, Aerol and Ponci but had a grindout match with Vic's Stark Tullys. Mike brought his Stark armies for the first time. He cruised through Koko and Vic but fell to Cuki and his Lannisters.Kiko is a new player in the meta and used Vic's Stark wolves for the tournament. It was fast, had a ton of kill and cruised through Aerol and Rich, but he wasn't able to escape Brian's Greyjoy winter lockdown. Brian brought the same deck as the week before. He cruised through Kiko but got a taste of his own medicine with Nikko's Greyjoy Black Sails. I was able to get around his choke and control the board with burn in our match but he got an early lead and I couldn't make the difference. I wasn't able to checkout Ponci's deck, but his matches were fast. Either he won fast which were against Edu and Joscar but was outraced by Patrich's Stark. Joscar changed things up with his Targaryen deck by going with the Ambush theme this time around. He was able to rush both Pau and Arvin's decks but was outsped by Ponci. Nikko came in with a newly constructed Greyjoy Black Sails deck that supposed to search for the right counter for each opponent. It happened exactly like that against Peng and Brian who almost had nothing left on the board at the end of their match. Cuki was able to jump this deck however and came out with the win. Pau once again brought his Martell KoTHH that blows everything up but came prepared for a Brotherhood deck that so frustrated him the week before. He was swarmed by Joscar, but was able to bounce back against Edu. For the last round, he drew a by. I brought another Targaryen KoTHH this tourney but focused more on burn instead of Ambush. There was still a healthy amount of Ambush but without the Long Lances, it wasn't quite the same. So I focused more on hard control this time and with more attachment hate as I knew some Starks were going to use their wolf attachments. I got an early lead with against Arvin but the match still reached the time limit with me getting the modified win. Against Mark, I knew what I had to do early when he played Spending the Winter Stores and getting Dragon Lore. So I proceeded in getting rid of his Maesters and discarding Dragon Lore right after it was played. Mark eventually conceded after I killed Balerion by bypassing him with stealth with Jhogo. My last match was against Brian. I was able to First Snow and Rule By Decree effectively and made him reshuffle his White Raven back to his deck which nullified his Wintertime Marauders. I also made sure he had no cancels in hand when I played Threat From the North and played Hatchling's Feast to discard his Murenmure and both Marauders. He had built a large early lead however and I didn't have much influence to play my Ambush effects to stop Brian's eventual win. Mark drew a first round by as he arrived late to the tournament. He brought his Maesters Path Balerion engine deck and got me in as his first match. His next match saw his deck run over Koko's for the win. Arvin brought his experimental Dothraki Army deck with the Pike Phalanx to the tourney. It wasn't running as smoothly as he hoped as he was only able to get a victory over Seth in the second round. Strangely enough, all of his opponents were Targ as he faced, myself, Seth and Joscar in the afternoon. Vic, in his first tournament, chose to go with his Stark Tullys with Bear Island as his restricted card. He cruised with his match against Seth but drew Stark players in Patrich and Mike. He struggled with both Starks though he lost to Patrich with 14 power. Peng brought Nikko's Baratheon The Stewards deck. The mechanic is for Knight of Flowers to get First Ranger and bulldoze everything in it's path. Unfortunately, her first match was against Nikko who dismantled her win mechanic. The next was against Rich who was just killing characters left and right. She finally got a win in against Edu. Richard hasn't been able to join tournaments for the past months because of work but was able to join today because of the holiday break. He showed signs of rust as overrun by Cuki and Kiko but was able to squeeze a game against Peng. Koko brought a spanking new Baratheon deck and was subsequently crushed by Mike and Mark. He drew a by in the second round. Aerol brought his Baratheon Knights to the fore, but he was crushed by Patrich and Kiko. His last match with Seth reached the time limit with both at equal power. His standing was a tad better because of the strength of schedule. Seth brought her Targaryen House of Dreams with The Dragon Pit as her chosen location. She was hammered by Vic and Arvin though but her match reached the time limit against Aerol. Edu brought his Greyjoy House of Dreams this day but I'm not sure if it's the same mill deck he brought the week before as his restricted card was different. Unfortunately, it was a hard day for Edu as he was beaten by Ponci, Pau and Peng. Thanks to Vic for having us at The Appraisery and making this tournament possible.
  4. Title: March All-aBoard AGoT Tournament by Gaming Library 2nd Joust of 2013 Date: Saturday, March 23 Place: All-aBoard Event by Gaming Library in Robinsons Galleria, Manila, Philippines 1st: Arvin - Targaryen, House of Dreams - Hatchling's Feast 2nd: Pau - Martell, Knights of the Hollow Hill - Burning on the Sand 3rd: Alvin - Lannister, Power Behind the Throne - Castellan of the Rock 4th: Dylan - Neutral, Brotherhood - Narrow Escape 5th: Nikko - Greyjoy, No Agenda - Search and Detain 6th: Cuki - Lannister, Power Behind the Throne - Castellan of the Rock 7th: Patrich - Stark, Siege of Winterfell - Meera Reed 8th: Joscar - Targaryen, House of Dreams - Aegon's Hill 9th: Brian - Greyjoy, House of Dreams - Fear of Winter 10th: Mikko - Targaryen, Knights of the Hollow Hill - Long Lances 11th: Koko - Lannister, Power Behind the Throne - Castellan of the Rock 12th: Edu - Greyjoy, House of Dreams - Search and Detain 13th: Ponci - Baratheon, No Agenda - Narrow Escape 14th: Bob - Greyjoy, House of Dreams - Island Refugee House Count: Targeryen - 3 Stark - 1 Baratheon - 1 Greyjoy - 4 Martell - 1 Lannister - 3 Neutral - 1 Agenda: Knights of the Hollow Hill - 2 Siege of Winterfell - 1 House of Dreams - 5 Brotherhood Without Banners - 1 Power Behind the Throne - 3 None - 2 We had the 2nd best tournout since last year's nationals with 14 players in attendance. We had returning players in Ponci and Patrich who attended their only their second tournament after more than half a year in hiatus and new players in Joscar and Edu. With the recent FAQ that nerfed favorite decks, House of the Dreams was the back up choice for many players and looks like will be the case in months to come. Arvin took it all in this event that saw him have the longest matches in round one thru three and lost to his friend, Brian, in the final round. Always a solid deck builder and methodical player, Arvin brought a resilient Targ burn deck with Meraxes as his House of Dreams location for the "quick" power grab and card draw. Pau brought a tweaked Martell kill/discard all characters that he brought last tournament. Trimming his characters even further, he packed even more control with Burning on the Sands together with Red Vengeance and Westeros Bleeds. He met his match in his Dylan's "The People's Deck" when he couldn't do anything to get rid of Beric Dondarrion. Alvin, one of the players who was on hiatus for several months, packed a Lannister PBtT kneel deck. His only loss was to Cuki in a mirror match in the 3rd round. Dylan brought a tweaked version of his Neutral Brotherhood deck. Tighter, leaner and meaner, his only loss was to Ponci in the last round when he couldn't handle the Asshai rush. Nikko, wanting to bring a non-control deck this time around, brought his Greyjoy Holy deck to the fore. He had a solid showing of loses only to Arvin and Alvin. Cuki once again brought his Lannister PBtT. He only lost to Nikko in the first round and Pau in the last. Patrich had a solid showing of losing his frist two rounds to Alvin and Dylan but rallied back with wins against Koko and Edu. Joscar, one of the new players in the scene in his first tournament, brought his Targ House of Dreams with Aegon's Hill that had everyone not wanting to face him. Solid showing of victories against Ponsi and Bob. Brian brought his retweaked GJ Winter deck that had House of Dreams Longship Iron Victory. Ironically, he lost his first two matches which were to other Greyjoy players, Bob and Edu, but won to Ponci and Arvin. I, Mikko, brought my Targ KoTHH choosing the Long Lances build instead of burn. I had convincing wins against Ponci and Koko, but lost the endurance game to Arvin. I volunteered to drop out of the last round as Koko had to leave the event because of work so that the numbers would still be even. Koko brought his Lannister PBtT similar to the other Lannisters decks that day that focused on kneel. He won his first match but lost the next two. He had to drop out to attend to some urgent work matters. Edu brought his GJ mill deck that had Corpse Lake as his House of Dreams location. His only victory was to his mirror match with Brian. Ponci brought his Baratheon deck centered around the Asshai theme. He was able to go for a rush win against Dylan in the last round. Lastly, Bob used his Greyjoy deck also with the Holy theme. I wasn't able to see what location he used with his agenda, but he didn't walk away empty handed with a victory against Brian in the first round. As always, many thanks to Gaming Library for hosting the event and giving AGoT LCG another tournament opportunity during this month's All-aBoard.
  5. 1st of Joust 2013 Date: Saturday, February 23 Place: All-aBoard Event by Gaming Library in Robinsons Galleria, Manila, Philippines 1st: Nikko - Greyjoy, Maester's Path 2nd: Pau - Martell, Knights of the Hollow Hill - Viper's Bannermen 3rd: Mike - Stark, Siege of Winterfell - Fury of the Wolf 4th: Arvin - Targaryen, Heir to the Iron Throne - ? 5th: Brian - Greyjoy, Kings of Winter - Fear of Winter 6th: Dylan - Neutral, Brotherhood without Banners - Narrow Escape / Threat from the East 7th: Cuki - Baratheon, Knights of the Realm - Narrow Escape 8th: Koko - Stark, Siege of Winterfell - Search and Detained? 9th: Meeks - Targaryen, Knights of the Hollow Hill - Search and Detained 10th: Mik - Martell, Alliance (Baratheon) - ? 11th: Seth - Targaryen, House of Dreams - ? 12th: Nicco - Baratheon, House of Dreams - Narrow Escape House Count: Targaryen - 3 Stark - 2 Baratheon - 2 Greyjoy - 2 Martell - 2 Neutral - 1 Lannister - 0 Agenda: Knights of the Hollow Hill - 2 Siege of Winterfell - 2 House of Dreams - 2 Maester's Path - 1 Kings of Winter - 1 Knights of the Realm - 1 Brotherhood without Banners - 1 Alliance - 1 Heir to the Iron Throne - 1 We had a good turnout with the first Joust tournament of 2013 with 12 players attending. Hopefully, the trend continues with each monthly tournament in the future. After grueling round 2 and 3 matches that almost reached the time limit, Nikko, the reigning Nationls Champion of 2012, bags his first tournament after an eight month absence. He came in using Greyjoy with the Maester's Path. It's no coincidence that he also took last year's nationals with a Targeryen Maester's Path. Pau, one of the newer member of the meta, had his best finish showcasing a Martell Knights of the Hollow Hill that uses Westeros Bleeds, Prince's Plan and much icon control. His was the achievement of the day when he was able to bring out The Red Viper with 2 duplicates and eventually attach a set of He Calls It Thinking on him and periodically kneel all defenders with a Lost Oasis. Ouch! Mike came in with his ever reliable Stark Siege of Winterfell that focuses on the direwolf attachements. He's been tweaking the same deck since last nationals and making it an even more efficient as seen in his third place finish. Arvin has seen his share of tournament wins last year all with different themes of House Targaryen. That day, he came in with his Heir to the Iron Throne centered on Dragons. A fast deck that is able to weather resets, his only loss was to Nikko in the second round. Brian, better known as The Maniquis, came in with his ever reliable Greyjoy Kings of Winter choke deck. With a deck that needs time to set up the choke, Brian fell to Mike as the direwolves were just too fast and was put in the defensive early on. Dylan came in with a never before seen Neutral House with the Brotherhood without Banners agenda. With a surprisingly resiliant deck that features much card draw and enough control elements, Dylan was able to surprise most opponents with the tricks of his deck. Cuki came in with his Baratheon Knights of the Realm deck that combines the knights theme with Baratheon lords. Koko used a Stark Siege centered around Boltons. His power count with his two loses were 11 and 12 respectively making him the highest power total with a 1-2 record. I came in next with the same deck that won me the last tournament in December. A costly decision of mistiming Marched to the Wall cost me my first match with Pau. I steam rolled over Nikko with a timely Hatchlings Feast that he couldn't recover from. My match with Dylan saw us through plot ten with almost reaching the time limit before Dylan finally outlasted my deck and got his fifteenth power in Dominance. Mik came in with a Martell deck with an Alliance to Baratheon. Seth used Mik's House of Dreams Targ with Dragon Pit as it's key location. Nikko experimented with a Baratheon House of Dreams with The Iron Throne that really was unfortunate enough to meet 2 hard control decks and a faster Bara deck. Many thanks to Gaming Library for hosting and giving A Game of Thrones LCG opportunities for tournaments during the monthly All-aBoard.
  6. Hi guys, When is Stealth declared? It used to be that once attackers are declared and knelt Stealth goes off. Has this changed in LCG format? I'm getting feedback in our meta that Stealth is declared right before defenders are chosen. Feed back is appreciated.
  7. What about search plots with a "reveal" the searched card? Or plots with "when revealed?"
  8. I have a questions about Core Set Pycelle. I know his ability triggers when anything "revealed" is in the text of the effect, but does it trigger when plots are "revealed?"
  9. Hello all, I have two questions about two cards, Dany's Chambers and Paper Shield. 1. Dany's Chambers Is Dany's Chambers able to respond after jumper Khal Drogo comes into play when winning a challenge? Horseback Archers? What about characters with played buy using Ambush during another non-Marshalling phase? 2. Paper Shield vs Forever Burning I just read an article in CardgameDB that when Paper Shield is used against Forever Burning, Forever Burning goes into the discard pile instead of dead pile. Paper Shield only cancels the effect of an event and Deathbound isn't part of the event effect is it? I always thought that the effect is only the -1 STR. Help would be appreciated. Thank you.
  10. Hi all, I'd like to know what are the key cards/mechanics that go into a competitive Stark Siege deck. Is Winter required? One of our old time Stark players is getting back into the LCG world and I'd like to help him out in becoming competitive. Thanks.
  11. Thanks alpha, I'm helping out a friend who's making the transition from CCG to LCG.
  12. Is there any resource that keeps track of what CCG cards are legal? What current cards from the CCG days are legal as of the Tale of Champions cycle? Thanks in advance.
  13. Thanks Staton! I didn't know there was that minor a difference alpha0599 in Marched To The Wall. Thanks.
  14. Hi guys, Old time CCG player here. Just wanted to ask the community where is it stated that direct reprints of CCG cards to LCG are tourney legal. We're about to start running tournaments in my area and all of my meta, except myself, started in the LCG era. One of the players insists that all my CCG cards are illegal in LCG tourney play. Can anyone direct me to a link or ruling? Thanks.
  15. Heya Stags. It's good to see the old guard is still here. Good to be somewhat playing AGoT again too. And I have gotten into the LCG but not much into the chapter packs yet, but I will eventually.
  16. Hi guys, I'm trying to find the latest ban list of the CCG cards before everything was moved over to LCG format. My play group is organizing an AGoT get-together for the holidays and we're all Classic CCG players. Most haven't played in over 2 years so, our memory is kind of foggy. I'd like to know what the latest list of banned cards are as I can't find them in the FFG site. The posted FAQ only addresses LCG era cards. Thanks for the help.
  17. Hello all, I have a few questions. 1. Horseback Archers - Can I use the ability of HBA and have it participate in MIL challenge alone as either attacker or defender? I know I asked this during the CCG days but I just don't remember the justification. 2. The Red Viper (PotS) and He Calls It Thinking When I successfully cancel a response with HCIT, is The Red Viper a legal recipient of the event/attachment? Thanks in advance.
  18. Please do share the decklist of the finished product.
  19. I'd just like to ask if there still any Classic format (CCG) tournaments still being played. Are the cards released in the LCG part of the format. Also, are the latest versions of the cards (those that showed up in the LCG) are being used or are the CCG versions being used. An example is Frozen Solid. It used to be able to be attached to any attachment or any location and used by any House. Suggestions on "house rules" are appreciated. Also, what is the most used First Plot in Jousts these days in LCG format? The old staples like Trading with the Pentoshi, A Beggared Realm, Conventions of War or A Gathering Storm weren't reprinted.
  20. What about the timing on playing duplicates? When I play a unique and I have a duplicate in hand, does the opponent have an opportunity for an action before I place the dupe?
  21. I guess I missed the 10 page thread back in 2008 as I had just quit a month or two before it happened. Yeah, the mixing of the new cards with my old ones doesn't sit quite well, and black bordered cards are more pleasing for me to look at. A lot of my old meta got disappointed with the white borders.
  22. From Selmy: "This coward is going to kill you, ser."
  23. I recently acquired a Princes of the Sun Premium Starter and was shocked that the card borders were white and even more appalled at the flimsy card stock. Why did they change from black to white border? Why the lesser quality in card stock??? Sigh...
