A Time for Wolves

Today, 05:56 PM by ldgs

Am sure quality cards take time to develop, perhaps they were looking for a way to raise the awareness / development of creature / direwolf decks

A Time for Wolves

Yesterday, 02:41 PM by AndrewHows

Wow, took them three years to get this champion's card in print, and I don't believe there's been a direwolf printed in the time between.


Seems to me like this was a bit of a dead card, only printed in this cycle to fulfil their obligations before the reset.

Yes. You shuffle after every search.

If I add 5 Tully cards to my hand (no other effects) do I still shuffle?
Bear Island

"House Stark only" in the text is not the same thing as the Stark House affiliation required by Bear Island. If it were, why would any Stark card (such as Meera) need to also say "House Stark only"?


All event cards are neutral. When "They Shall Not Cross" is put into play as an attachment, it will also be neutral. Neutral cards do not have the Stark affiliation, so any you control "turn off" Bear Island. So yes, using "They Shall Not Cross" to save Bear Island is counter-productive -- unless you attach it to a character that you're going to kill in a minute, anyway.

They Shall Not Cross is House Stark only, so presumably when it enters play as an attachment it wouldn't interfere with Bear Island's text conditions.  But then 'House X only' is a deck-building restriction which I'm not sure counts as House affiliation, so I could be wrong.

So... if you use "they shall not cross" to save Bear Island, then enters game as a neutral boon attachment... (no choice on the matter) so you cant use Bear Island anymore anyway???

That is correct, you can cheat in OOH attachments without paying the OOH penalty.

By "printed gold cost", does that mean OOH attachments don't cost extra?

Cool, thanks Ktom!

Well, the better way to look at it is that, since the "and" is before the "to," the entire phrase ("search your deck for an attachment and pay its printed cost") is the cost of the "put into play" effect. Thus, searching for an attachment that is more expensive than what you could pay results in no expectation of a successful resolution - which means you can't initiate the effect to begin with. So no, you cannot use this effect to search for an attachment with a higher printed cost than you have gold.


From a purely practical standpoint, you might need to complete the search to verify you have no attachments you can pay for, but you cannot pull one that is more expensive when you search and call the search good.


Also, as you say, there is nothing in the effect that says to put the found attachment into your hand if you can't pay for it, so you absolutely cannot just make that assumption.

uHeep : You could play it in a Martell/Bara Conquest deck with Rhoynar Emissary.


It is probably a bad idea, though.

"After Braided Warrior comes into play, search your deck for an attachment and pay its printed gold cost to put it into play attached to a card you control. Then, shuffle your deck."


Since the card says "and" instead of "then", am I able to search for an attachment that I cannot afford?  Since I cannot fulfill the entire effect, I would imagine this would be an illegal play.  It also does not say "add to hand, and pay its printed gold cost" so if I am able to search an attachment that is too expensive, could I keep it in hand?  Again, I think not....

Awsome! thanks! This is a great card for anything running 1 or 2 attachements.

Braided Warrior

No - you cannot use the "Ambush" ability of any attachment selected when using this card's effect. This is because you are not playing the attachment as a separate action, but putting it into play using the character's ability. As a result, you can only use the cost specified in the ability.

The attachment you search your deck for may have a printed cost of 0. Nothing in the ability places any kind of limit on the attachment chosen (other than that it must be legal to put on a card you control).

Braided Warrior

Can the attachments cost be paid in influence if the attachement has ambush?

Can the cost of the attachement be 0?

You don't. The restricted lists for joust and melee are both in the FAQ document (which can be accessed from the FFG website) and are updated a few times a year.

If you build a deck using the deckbuilder on this site it will tell you if you have an issue with 2 or more restricted cards.

how do you know by looking at the card it's restricted to joust?

There is no synergy with Walder Frey because he is not "declared" when he joins the challenge. There are some cards (few and far between) that are either forced to attack or can force an attack, but leap to mind.


The point of this card isn't to encourage an attack so you can claim power, but rather to discourage an attack so you can control the challenge phase.
