Blanking Limited Locations and Price of War

6 posts in this topic

Hi guys,

 

I'm wondering if this is possible, scenarios are the following:

 

Say, I have Meera or Nightmares and I get to blank a location say one of the fiefdoms.

Since those locations are limited and now blanked (hence considered as non-limited now?), could I use price of war to discard the blanked location?

 

Card Text as follows:

Meera Reed:

Any Phase: Bring Meera Reed out of Shadows and into play by paying the rest of her gold cost. Then choose 1 non-plot card (2 instead if it is Winter) and treat its printed text box as if it were blank until the end of the phase.

 

Nightmares:

Any Phase: Choose 1 character or 1 location. Until the end of the phase, treat the printed text box of that character or location as though it were blank.

 

Price of War:

Response: After you win a Military challenge in which you control at least 1 attacking War character, choose and discard from play up to 2 non-limited locations controlled by the losing opponent. (Limit 1 per round.)

 

As I understand correctly, blanking affects keywords... and limited is a keyword right?

 

Thanks for all the help! :D

That is correct. While blanked, the location would be considered "non-limited" for the purpose of something like Price of War.

Thank you for that... just an additional related question

 

What if I use Frozen Solid on the said "blanked" limited location, would Frozen Solid take effect still after the phase? or will it be discarded?

 

Frozen Solid Text:

House Stark only.Attach to a non-limited location or attachment.Treat attached card as though its printed text box were blank.

The short answer is yes, Frozen Solid stays on and continues to blank the (otherwise) limited location.

The explanation is a little funky, but here goes: As described above, when Meera or Nightmares blanks the location, it becomes "non-limited." That allows you to put Frozen Solid on it. Now there are TWO fully functioning blanking effects. Seems redundant, right? Well, at the end of the phase, the Meera/Nightmares blanking effect wears off, but the Frozen Solid blanking effect is still going strong. Because of this, there is never a time when the location gets its text back to become "limited" again and knock Frozen Solid off.

It's worth noting you can achieve something similar with "No attachments" characters, Meera/Nightmares, and Milk of the Poppy.

Ohhh this is awesome. Freeze all seats of power. This didn't came to my mind until now, but I'll sure make use of it.
