Stannis's Northern Cavalry
***--

No.

 

The character's STR is only considered to have been "lowered" by the plot in the phase when the plot is revealed. Once it is applied, the modifier just continues. The continuing result of revealing the plot (that the character's effective STR is lower than its printed STR) persists into other phases, but the active game occurrence that met the condition for the "cannot be killed" does not.

Sorry, I'm not sure, that my understanding is correct. Could you please clarify, if someone plays plot card: "Hear me roar" (Characters without an Intrigue icon get -1 STR. ) or "Threat from the North" (All characters get -1 STR and are discarded from play (cannot be saved) if their STR is 0.) - does it mean, that [Stannis's Northern Cavalry] can NOT be killed in this round?

You can't trigger any card in the dead (or discard) pile unless the text specifically says you can.

Khal Drogo doesn't cancel the claim effect. (The word "cancel" doesn't appear anywhere in his text.) Rather, Drogo replaces the normal claim of whatever challenge he attacks alone in so that it resolves the way his card says. If you use By Sword or By Guile to cancel the claim effect, it never resolves in the first place, so it cannot resolve in the "new" way indicated by Drogo's text.

Actually, Drogo's effect does not cancel the claim effect, since the description does not use the word 'cancel.' Drogo's effect replaces the claim effect of the challenge, like with Pyat Pree (QoD). By Sword or by Guile does cancel the claim effect and then instigates a card effect of moving 3 power, so the way these would interact is: win challenge with Drogo alone, claim effect changes from whatever standard effect is to his specific claim effect. You may then choose to play BSobG and cancel his claim effect to move 3 power. If you chose to activate BSobG first, then the normal claim effect has already been canceled and Drogo's effect cannot be activated.

 

Note also that since Drogo's effect only replaces 'the normal claim effects,' cards like Battle for the Shield Islands which have already replaced that normal claim effect prevent this ability from being used, while BSobG can still be played here since it is only replacing the claim effect.

How does his effect work with the event "By Sword or by Guile"? Since Drogos effect already cancels the normal claim, does the event cancel Drogos claim effect or do both effects remain active?

Yes, he would be able to discard the White or Black Ravens. As you note, if Viserys gains the Raven trait, he is no longer a "non-raven card," so immunity to "non-raven cards" would no longer block him.

Technically, Shadows isn't a "phase." Rather, at the beginning of each phase, each player has the opportunity to bring a card out of Shadows. So Shadows is a part of any and all phases, not a separate phase of its own.

 

Which is really just my long, annoying way of saying that the new phase created by the card will include the opportunity to bring a card out of Shadows at the beginning of it.

If I attach RH to Viserys Targaryen (tCP) does it mean he (now with the raven trait) can discard raven attachments (immune to non-raven cards)?

is there a shadows phase (again) at the beginning of the repeated phase?

in the Challenges i'm play lannisport honor guard free in the game under the control of any opponent or pay gold

As the effect says 'put ... into play' you do not have to pay the gold cost. If you want it under your own control directly, you could marshal it by paying the gold cost during the Marshalling phase, but not during the Challenge phase.

Whether they do or not, they are not affected by this card, which only stops cards from providing gold bonuses. Since there is no "+" in front of the gold number on a plot card, it isn't considered a "bonus."

This is kind of a dumb question, but do plot cards count as cards you control?

Nothing. If you're tied, no one has the "the most" cards at his or her command.

Without any sort of limitation (e.g., "...your non-unique characters..." or "...non-unique character that you control..."), it applies to all characters in play, no matter who controls them.

I just want to clarify what this card means. Does this cards effect apply to the one who revealed it as well or just the other players
