Grand Maester Pycelle - Core Set

Recommended Posts

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?"

Pycelle:  "After an opponent's effect reveals one or more cards,reveal the top card of your deck and put it into your hand (limit 3 per phase)."

 

The plot being revealed (as part of the framework action) isn't an opponent's effect, it's an effect of the game. Technically so are the cards "revealed" by being discarded, marshalled, etc (they are "revealed" to you because the game requires it, not because of any specific card the opponent played).

However, a plot like summoning season, which requires you to "Reveal" the card you searched for, counts (but only if he played the summoning season, not if you did, forcing him to reveal a card as well). As does any card effect using the "reveal" used by your opponent, regardless of who it is used on.

One potentially important distinction is that revealing a plot card *can* trigger pycelle, but only if an opponent's effect caused the plot card to be revealed; eg Bungled Orders (Plot), Bran Stark (Core), Citadel Law (etc).
