Offer of a Peach
***--

Yesterday, 08:26 AM by theamazingmrg

I would have thought you'd play both tbh, if you want challenge control. 1 x Highgarden and 2 x Offer seems a nice enough selection.


Ultimately, I think it comes down to whether you expect location control or event cancel. And taking this over High garden is a useful way of lowering your cost curve slightly, as Tyrrell can be top-heavy in the character department!

It won't be for every Tyrell deck, but Highgarden is very useful. So is this. Only one or the other will get played though, and this is cheaper than Highgarden.

Because unlike most signature attachments it can only ever be used on a single character, of which you can only have 3 of in the deck and if you don't see that character then it is a completely dead card (and technically it doesn't do anything if you don't have any Dragons out, but that isn't a situation any Targ player wants to be in).

Quick question on this: as it is non unique and you can have three out, does that mean mean that each of those cards can trigger the ability each phase even though each card individually says once per phase?

Thanks for explaining the card effect. Why have people rated it only a 3 if it's a powerful card?

That's like saying every character without an int icon sucks because they are vulnerable to Tears. Craven and Milk are vulnerable to Confiscation and Cressen as well but everyone and their grandma plays them. At cost 3 and lower this can turn off Ghaston, Highgarden, The Red Keep and lots of other great locations. It's not an auto-include or particularly reliable but it also doesn't straight up suck. Not with the lack of decent location control so far.

 

Needless to say that was hardly my grand dissertation on the myriad reasons that this is still a poor card, even with the increase in marauding locations. I stand by my statement.

Vulnerable to conf and cressen. Still sucks.

If I read this correct, no 'Scheme' cards at all can be included in your regular plot deck, even if they're different to the five selected for 'Rains?'

 

Correct. With this agenda you will have 7 plots - all non-Scheme which you use as normal plots and 5 plots - all different and Scheme which are aside and used only when triggered and only one time during the game.

It can be MVP in the current meta against those Harrenhal Lannister and Baratheon dominance decks. In the current meta Stark is one of the best banner house beacuse of this card.

EDIT: and after Valar it can also turn the tide


Also during Valar, its a great answer if they have a save on the board and you don't, or you can be first player and trigger it first to discard a key character rather than kill them.

And good in Varys decks. And aggro decks. And decks that want to win initiative.

Hey guys, probably it is obvious, but just to be sure: He can save smne from Valar even if he dies the same time? (of course it's an interrupt, so he can kneel and activate his ability before dying himself?)

I don't know why people still seem all to have this in their plot decks, just in case someone is stupid enough to play a high cost char alone in setup...

Simply because you can win a game when it hits on first round

Yeah, people who mulligan into a hand of only 5+ cost characters are stupid. Cannot even build their decks properly, ugh!

i realized two tournaments too late that this is actually "once per phase".

 

i thought it was "once per round". So sad.

Just your own character.

 

From the Rules Reference "Costs" section (page 5):

Some card abilities are presented in a “do X to do Y” construct. In such a construct, the “do X” aspect (preceding the word “to”) is a cost, and the “do Y” aspect (following the word “to”) is an effect. An opponent’s game elements may not be used to pay a cost.

You put the top character in your dead pile into play under your control. You put the top character in your opponents dead pile into play under their control. Each card will come into play unless there is another copy of that card in the same dead pile. That's it.

 

Well, technically... ;)

A unique card also cannot enter play if you control but do not own another copy of it, or own but do not control.

Whoa, that got out of hand:


You put the top character in your dead pile into play under your control. You put the top character in your opponents dead pile into play under their control. Each card will come into play unless there is another copy of that card in the same dead pile. That's it.


Your number 3 is not true and number 5 doesn't matter (they both go into play) though I do understand why that is confusing.


Pretend the card says "Each player puts the top card...."

What does it mean when Tommen turns off most opponent kings?

 

A lot of King-related cards have advantages if your opponent doesn't control a king (See Balon Greyjoy (Clash), Renly Baratheon (Clash), or,  for instance Beggar King). By having your own King on the board, you're negating some of their advantage.
