This looks very interesting. I am looking to go back to my Stark roots and need something to bring down a very powerful Lannister deck. Could you tell me a bit about how you make this deck work and how you designed it?

Is there any reason for not putting in Recruiters and Ygritte?

Thats a lot of duplicates for a Harrenhal-heavy meta. Also, its a tonne of cards that can't be set up.

 

As to the neutral icon based reducers, I'm 90% sure that they don't work if the icon is gained from your agendas.

 

I'd be somewhat inclined to include Meera Reed as your restricted choice, and to add some of the Stark staples, whether they're Night's Watch or not: Brienne, for example.

I only got to play this deck once, two weeks ago, and got whopped very heavily. I started out as a Stark man and while all of us were limited to the Core Set cards I did quite well because Stark Military is formidable. Learning to make up for the less impressive Intrigue and Power, I kept on going strong. Then I got curious about Martell and fared very well. Now that my opponents and I are experimenting with newer cards, things have escalated. Martell isn't cutting it as well as it used to, so I thought I'd try Stark once more, and found this deck.

The main problem is getting gold to do anything. I ended up with a LOT of cards in my hand, very few of which I could use.Had a truly lousy set up and never recovered, really, so perhaps Asklepios
called it correctly. I should be trying this deck again tomorrow.

I plan on adding more locations that better supply gold and I am going to remove certain characters too. I'll look into those suggested here.
