Is she worth sacrificing an agenda for? If she didn't have her text when running a non-character agenda like the two Martell characters in the last CP, then at least it would encourage players using Kindly Man.
But returning a three gold character to look for a location? Maybe Bear Island (AE) or Winterfell Castle (Core), but even then it's a push.
I for one think she is definitely worth no agenda., but that is only if you are not running her with a theme like Winter or Wildlings. I think you can still fit in Kindly Man because you do not have to play him or choose him to die hastily. You could also use Maege to search for Kingdom locations that have all the house affiliations which can help with some interesting tactics.
Shes solid. Starks have an over reliance on locations and she helps that no end.
I'll remove Siege of Winterfell from my Stark Nobles deck for her sake. The Agenda isn't that important anyway, and I guess this will be true for more Stark decks that runs Siege just because there wasn't a reason not to. Now there is, along with Damon Dance-for-me :)

Edit: Does a character agenda that has been agendafied counts as "running an agenda"?

meh i find it so hard to get rid of the Siege Agenda for any of these cards

yes sir its still an agenda once its used as such
Ok, thanks!

And yes, it is hard, and definitely nothing that every or most Star decks should so, especially not kill decks.

I'm too much of a control player though, so I don't mind letting a kill/rush tool like Siege go, and instead increase on my card advantage :D

And if first card one fetches is Godswood for example, it's practically only 1 gold per turn after that to play her.

Plus getting around that whole pesky Limited restriction of one per turn. Granted I am a bit biased since I helped design her at Days of Ice and Fire (or maybe LCG days) ~2 years ago

I think she's a great character and may very well get the Tully deck a spot on the map. After all Riverrun (LoW) doesn't have to kneel to use its ability. (Godswood is another great example.)

Then I congratulate you and the rest of the team for a job well done! Would be great to read some kind of report on how that design session went!

And let's not forget Winterfell (LoW). I use it a lot in my defense decks, but I realize of course the cost is very prohibitive in most builds (although w/no attachments, unique, and at 4-cost it is immune to most location hate currently in the game). But swapping a 3-cost character for this 4-cost location (that still works when knelt) may give new love to this location perhaps.

Favorite use of Winterfell is in a siege deck with Rodrick Cassel and imposter, making him a 9 str bicon who doesnt kneel to defend. and you claim 4 power of you win the challenge
Does Rickon Stark (MotA) let her search and two locations?

Yes, he does. Rickon copies the effect, not the cost. This is similar to Bran the Builder's Legacy (Core), for example, which you could use Rickon's ability with and not pay the cost twice.
Could I use Maege Mormont (AHM) ability to put Riders of the Red Fork (FtC) into play?
Yes, no problem with that.
Here's a question....If you have her Duped...does remove the dup count for her response?
I think it doesn't.

A dupe saves a card from being removed from play in any way. If you used a dupe, you are therefore preventing the cost from being paid, which means you can't resolve the effect.

You're not even allowed to try and save from paying a cost.
The reason I asked was unlike say Arya that states "cannot be saved", there's no mention of that here. Just that she needs to be returned to hand, not removed from play.

FFG is inconsistent on when/where they put (cannot be saved) but looking at the timing chart, there is no opportunity to save from paying a cost.

Step 1: Initiate effect - This is where you pay all costs.
Step 2: Save/Cancel - This is to cancel the effect, not any costs
Step 3: Resolve effect - If it wasn't cancelled, the effect resolves.
This card has two effects without a linking "then". Presumably once you've searched for a location you then have the option of whether to play the second effect of putting a location into play? Also, if something like a He Calls It Thinking (PotS) is played to cancel, then the cost (returning her to your hand) is still paid but neither effect would be allowed?

Response: After you win a challenge in which Maege Mormont participated, return her to her owner's hand to search your deck for a [Stark] location. Put that location into play knelt and shuffle your deck.

Cost = return Maege to owner's hand
Effect = Search for a Stark location. Put that location into play knelt

Even though there is no then, it doesn't say you "may" put the location into play, so you have to put into play whatever location you find. And yes, if the response is cancelled, she is still returned to hand and the remaining effects are cancelled.

Let me ask one awkward question... if you win a challenge and Maege does the effect, and Rickon Stark copies the effect... can i bring two "limited" in house locations in play? since it is not considered as Played...
Yes. As you mentioned, because you aren't playing the locations, you could have played one during Marshalling, and then use Maege and Rickon to get two more.

Examples are given above, where they suggest getting Godswood to help make it cheaper to replay Maege every turn.
