Technically the Lannister house card would not count for common cause because it specifies "character". Also in the example where the player attempting to play Brienne is house stark I'm not convinced that they would receive the reduction on Myr because she is technically in house because she has the Stark affiliation.

It doesn't come into effect since during set up you are not actually playing cards (I think the terminology is placing them).

Does the passive effect (lowering of cost) take place during setup? Or is it not applicable?

1. In AGoT, "cannot" takes precedence over everything. Since the agenda says "it cannot be winter," it can't. End of story.

 

2. Immunities on cards don't extend to those cards' effects. So while you couldn't, for example, discard the White Raven with a non-Raven card, you can make it not be winter with a non-Raven card.

So I'm trying to think of a reason why this should work "as intended", but I can't come up with any examples of why.   ktom or bomb, got any answers?

I got a question, the agenda says it cannot be winter... But the Raven attachment says Immune to non-Raven card so, If I got the White raven card out it should be winter regardless?

He's not banned anymore.  He's lost all his keywords and his text has been changed to  "Any Phase: Discard 1 Power from your house to give Jaqen H'ghar a keyword of your choice until the end of the phase"

 

He still gets all the house affiliations though.  He still counts a in-house for all houses (except neutral) but you are right that for the purposes of Common Cause and similar effects that he only contributes one house affiliation, and you can choose which.  

 

So for your example: Lannister House Card, Stark character, Brienne and Jaqen would be 4 house affiliations for Common Cause.

Nevermind just saw that that card is banned.. but the same could hold true for a duel character like arrogant contender or something liek that.. Could I choose if i wanted him to be bara or lani depending on what other characters I have out.

That is great! Free Brienne!  I was wondering about number of house affiliation for the plot card with the x claim.

 

Common Cause Prized 1. X is equal to the number of different House affiliations among the characters you control. (Each character cannot contribute more than 1 House affiliation to this count.)

 

So if I had Jaquen H´ghar (the one with every house) I could choose him to count for any house I wanted, for example GJ. I understand it is not all 6 houses but can I choose what I want him to be?

Assuming you are not playing Stark or Bara, and you have both Myr and Bravos out, you are correct that Brienne is considered "out-of-house" for both effects, so she would be -3 cost (assuming she is the first card matching the listed reduction restrictions).

 

Using the agendas does not make the other cards considered "in house", so you are correct that you ignore the 2 gold penalty applied to that OOH card, and with those 2 locations in play, she would indeed be free.

 

With regards to your next question - I'm not sure what you are trying to get at with house affiliations you control.  Is there some other effect you are getting at when trying to count Jaqen as a Greyjoy character?

 

Side note: If you are a Stark player, then Brienne is NOT considered out-of-house because she does have a matching house affiliation - so the reduction from Myr would have no effect and only the "lady" reduction from Bravos would have an effect.

Only because terminology matters so much, it is definitely not a "save response".   It is a passive effect that will take effect whenever possible.  Your friends comment is about playing a dupe during the marshalling phase.  That phase is the only time you can "play" characters/attachments/locations anyways.  However, put-into-play is a whole other ballgame and can be done whenever an effect allows.  As Darkstar's effect is not restricted to any particular phase, it works at any time he is discarded from your hand.  In your scenario, he would indeed be put into play and then immediately become a duplicate to the one that is currently in play.  

 

The only 2 times I can readily think of that his ability would not work is if you had Darkstar in your dead pile already (and not in play), then he cannot come into play because of the unique-dead-pile rules.  Also, if a player had the Fear of Winter plot revealed and you had already played your 1 card this turn, then Darkstar's ability would be ignored because you have already reached your 1 card limit and he would be discarded as normal.

I just came across this card today with a friendly melee session. I played a Martell deck (a friend's) and I masrhalled into play Darkstar. Then, the question arouse: ''If I had chosen to have Darkstar into play and through a drawing effect I had another copy-duplicate of him in my handin a following phase, and let's suppose I lost an intrigue challenge and the claim was Darkstar, what should happen then? 1) Would the Darkstar from my hand be discarded as an ordinary character or 2) would he be put into play through his triggered effect, as a duplicate? My friend contradicted the latter by saying that ''only in the marshalling phase you can put duplicates into play''. Personally, I think the text is exactly for this reason, to allow you to play Darkstar as a 'save response' from being discarded at any phase of the round. Please enlighten us!

Kingdoms and house affiliations confusion

 

How does this work with a character with 2 house affiliations both of which are out of house.

 

Example Brienne of Tarth-Princes of the Sun (Stark/Bara). and Jaquen H´ghar with

 

  1. If I have both Myr (lower Bara) and Bravos (Lower Stark/Lady) could I reduce her cost by 2 for house affiliation and 1 more for Lady? -3 total

  2. What about if we add the Agenda - Treaty with the North/Conquest/Alliance with a Lannister house card - Could you then avoid the 2 cost out of house because Stark making her free (assuming she is played first

  3. What happens with the amount of house affiliations I control. If I have a lanni char, a stark char and Brienne, is it considered 3 houses or 2.

  4. What if I add Jaquen H´ghar. Can I choose him as a Greyjoy Character making it 4 different affiliations?

Brienne of Tarth

Limits on cards that remain in play, such as this, only apply to themselves.  Limits on cards that leave play (such as the location Den of the Wolf) or are never "in play (such as the event Die By the Sword) apply to all cards of that name and from that controller.

Is the limit relevant to each Priest of the Drowned God or absolute?

 

Example: I have two Priests of the Drowned God in play, does it mean I can use the effect 4 times, two for each?

While the example didn't pan out so well, the concept is still solid.  If the character dies before reaching the resolution of the challenge, then it will not be in play during the resolution of the challenge in order to trigger the effects of the attachment.

Flame-Kissed could be attached, but would have no effect.  Since we are splitting hairs.

You could choose an opponent's stnading character, but then you couldn't stand one of your own. The 'Then' in the text means that you must choose AND Stand a charcter before any of the text after the 'then' can resolve. Since a standing character can't stnad, if you choose a standing character then the effect didn't fully resolve, so everthing that comes after never happens.

Can I choose an opponent's standing character as target to stand, then choose my knelt char to stand mine?
