Stark My Agenda


One of my favorite versions of Arya, this one is super versatile and can be a beast in controlling the flow of power in melee games.
So, she can just...fire away, 1 influence at a time, knocking down Renown and Stealth as long as she's got the juice. Damn...
However, as Stark don't typically run much influence, she won't be able to deal with Bara rush single-handedly ;)

What is good about her, is that if the character has Stealth and Renown, they lose both and she gains both, and not just one or the other.
but can I just knell 2 influence to steal from 2 car stealth and renown?
As long as you're kneeling the influence separately, yes (that is, you aren't getting both influence from the same source like Knights of the Hollow Hill (MotM) or Kingsroad Fiefdom (QoD)). There's no limit on the number of times you can use the ability beyond the number of times you can pay the cost.
I usually run 3 Seas and 3 Fiefdoms just for reducers in most decks; they tend to provide enough influence for routine things.

There are two reasons why it doesn't work from the same source: When you kneel a source like Knights of the Hollow Hill you are commiting to the use of 2 influence. If the effect you are paying for only uses 1 of those, such as with triggering Arya's ability, the remaining influence is wasted. When you go to trigger Arya's ability a second time you would have to kneel another influence providing card to pay the cost. The other reason this doesn't work is her ability does not say "kneel X to remove X". If it did, you could kneel 2 (or even more) influence on the first strigger to remove that many keywords.

This is similar to if you discard Narrow Sea (Core) to reduce the next character you play by 2. If the next character you play is Hodor (Core) then you have wasted a portion of the reduction.

two questions, how does renown work, can she  steal renown from multiple characters to claim more then 1 power?, and can she have more then one stealth, and cast those for a single challenge?

im little confused

Having multiple instances of the same keyword doesn't allow you to use the effect twice, so if she had stealth twice she could still only pick one target and she would only claim one power for renown regardless of how many characters she took renown from. However, if she had on of her keywords removed by an effect like Pentoshi Manor then having two instances would allow her to keep the keyword.

Another way I like to use her is, if the opponent doesn't have any stealth or renown to take, I take it from one of my own characters already kneeling from a previous challenge.
