I used this last minute deck to win last night and thought it was a cool little trick. It basically works by not playing anything until you have Viserys, 15 attachments and enough gold to pay for them.

Use Counting Favours (Core) for initial draw and then Loyalty Money Can Buy (QoD) and Across the Summer Sea (APS) to stop cards being discarded from Intrigue challenges and use multiplayer titles purely to be supported by someone.

True Queen's Loyalist (APS) and Formal Petition (PotS) can take some of the attachment pressure off and spend some of the gold that will otherwise be wasted.

Condemned is there in case there happens to be another king in play.

Draw caps can be met with The Dragons Tail (PotS) as well as some of the attachments having draw effects when you play them.\n\nI used Initiative to pick the Master of Laws for the extra card and someone nearly always picks Master of Coin.

I managed to win by the Marshalling phase of round 3. Nobody saw it coming! Obviously cards like Rule by Decree (Core) will ruin any chances of pulling this off.

Any suggestions and alteration would be welcome.
Wow. To be honest, my first reaction was like: What was he thinking? How can he even come to close to win a game?
One Mill and everything is over.

And now: It NEVER occured to me that you just WAIT to play him IF you have the ~15 attachments o.o

I just tried it myself and have a lot of fun by testing this with OCTGN.

A few things I alterated from your deck:
- 3x Fire and Blood
Becomes an attachment during the CHallenge-Phase. And has a nice Strength boost, too^^
- 3x Daenery's Favor:
Works AWESOME with Fire and Blood. With these too cards it should be easy too WIN a Challenge xD (alltough that's not the point, i know).
But both cost zero and jeah.

Then i play three Xaro's House because Draw is pretty important. And a few small changes overall.

I really want to build this and try it xD Thank you for posting this =)

Cheers,

Yeah its all about draw! Xaro's Home wasn't nearly as useful as I thought because when I finally played the attachments I got the draw cap with Tourney Lance and Court Advisor.

I thought it was cool that it managed to win with only one power (thanks to True Queen's Loyalist) and without attacking or defending. Think it took them by surprise!

Those cards you mentioned sound good. It crossed my mind to play as Martell using the Bloodthirst agenda and pay an extra 2 for Viserys.
It's been around as a deck for a while.

The problem is that it's a MASSIVE glass cannon. It only goes off once and then everyone holds their spot removal for him. I dream crushed someone once by flamekissing him as the first action after he was played.

Am I right in thinking that if I play Viserys the same time I play all 15 attachments there is no action window for an opponent to play a card such as flame-kissed as only the active player can marshal cards. I would of won before anyone could put a negative attachment on him or military challenge me.
Right After you play him every other Player has a Window to do something. You even cannot play Viserys and all the attachments AT ONCE because After every Single attachment you play an other Player can react to it.

What Do you think, Melee only?
Problem could be that in joust it's over in round four. :-/
(3x unopossed and maybe dominance = about 10-12 Power.) only thing you could do and thats my Trick:
Marshall until you have only two cards left.(to have One After loosing an intrigue challenge.) Viserys should now have about eight/nine attachments. Just make sure You have at least one Bodyguard on him or a rusted sword. You want to win the Mill challenge or at least save him. After you survived this round You play Negoations at the great Sept.
This nets you seven new cards! (five from plot and two by normal Draw).
Easy now to have the remaining attachments ^^ (Especially if you have xaros house or a few of the play and Draw ones).

1) Only the Active Player is allowed to take actions that cost gold.


So an opponent could use an event like Dragon Attack (ACos) but couldn't play a attachment like Flame-Kissed (Core) straight after I play Viserys because they are not the active player.

Is this right?

I only ever play Melee and as you say, it wouldn't work in Joust.

Its a fun deck for a casual game night when the chapter packs I ordered for my proper Targ deck hadn't arrived and I had to knock something together within 15 mins.
Flame-kissed has ambush, so you can certainly pay for it with influence and play it as an "any phase" action during another player's marshaling phase.

Wow, no restricted card? Come to think of it, I'm not sure what you'd want to add.

Yeah, that would definitely ruin the plan. Out of interest, are you able to play an attachment of zero cost when an opponent is marshaling as it doesn't have a gold cost?
Nope. You can only pay for non-event cards in your own marshalling phase. (you're technically paying 0 to play a 0 cost card)


Other stuff that ruins this deck:
Old Nan + Dissension (will see more play now refugess are unrestricted again)
Song of Ice (you can't play 15 attachments with a 4 card hand)
Aegon's hill (kill him from your hand while you're storing cards)
Confession
Any heavy Intrigue deck. (PBtT just flat out says no to this build)

Don't get me wrong, it can work. One of our locals has been playing around with it for a while. However as I mentioned before as soon as anyone sees it go off, it's never happening again.
