The Crow is a Tricksy Bird
-----

Yesterday, 10:37 PM by mplain

Tricksy Bird forces you to reveal a plot card with the same name as the one chosen — not necessarily the particular copy of that plot card chosen. If a copy of the chosen plot card is in your plot deck when it’s time to reveal plots, you must reveal the chosen plot.

Nope, that won't work.

FAQ (1.2) Duplicates

In order to bring a card into play as a duplicate, both the duplicate and the unique card that would be duplicated must be owned and contolled by the player attempting the duplication.

This card got a poor review from scantrell24 et al, but (being a relatively novice / casual) player I don't understand why. As far as I can tell, 4 gold for a 3-bicon with a decent ability seems to be "par" for costing. This seems to me to have the benefit of being able to enter play during the challenges phase (pseudo ambush) and the bonus of standing a Sand Snake. Is the lack of love just because the ability is not good ENOUGH to warrant 4 cost?

With this card, can you marshal an opponent's discarded dupes if that character is still on the table?

Can you marshal a card from an opponents discard pile, and then dupe the card you marshaled with another copy from the same discard pile (of course as long as the opponent doesn’t already have that card in play)

FAQ "End of Phase Timing Sequence" says that after "until the end of the phase" lasting effects expire, there's a framework window for "at the end of the phase" delayed effects and reactions to them, occuring outside of any phase. During that window, the plot would not be blanked, and so the Standing phase would be skipped.

 

Now, one could argue that if there are no actual delayed effects resolving at the end of the Dominance phase, then the framework window between phases does not occur at all, and so the Standing phase should begin immediately. However, that would mean the general round sequence is dependent on certain cards being played (in unobvious ways), which would be very... clanky. I believe the void between phases exists regardless of the presence of delayed effects.

A “card with shadow” is a card with the shadow keyword. While Fortified Position is in play, cards with the printed shadow keyword lose that keyword, and are not considered “cards with shadow.” Therefore you cannot normally play Clever Feint while Fortified Position is revealed.

[Danny Schaefer, 12.07.2018] (Source)

 
Clever Feint can indeed move a card that gained the Shadow keyword to shadows (this can also be done via Patchface + Motley), and that card will be stuck there until The Queen of Thorns or Hired Assassin liberate it.

Ha!  Fair question!  Makes sense intuitively.
 
However, I do not think it would be blank, because the Acolyte's effect is only active 'until the end of the phase'. Thus, there is no point in time in which the Standing Phase could theoretically start happening and The Withering Cold is blank.

 

If the RRG specified a relevant part of the Dominance Phase (e.g. "Step 5: Transition to Standing Phase") then I would agree with you.  However, by the time the Standing Phase happens/doesn't-happen, the Acolyte is no longer active.

I do not believe this card has adresses Shadow keyword. I think it has in mind the crest which Faceless Man does not copy.

If I use Nefarious Acolyte in Dominance phase to blank Withering Cold, would it cause to skip Standing phase anyway or Standing phase will take place? What is the exact timing?

 

Text from Nefarious Acolyte:

Action: Kneel Nefarious Acolyte and pay 1 gold to choose a plot card. Until the end of the phase, treat it as its printed text box were blank (except for Traits).

 

My ruling would be to proceed to Standing phase normally, as "At the end of the Dominance phase" the plot would stop being blanked. But I would like other opinion on this.

Then he goes into the shadows and can never be brought out (except from effects like that of The Queen of Thorns, etc)

I think nothing happens with the event, it goes back to the top.

With Nightmares, it wouldn't still be blank. 
When an effect (e.g. Nightmares) affects a card in play (e.g. a character) all lasting effects on that card expire when it leaves play. However, when something affects a card not in play, things get more complicated.  Luckily, there are only a few cards that can do this––His Viper Eyes, Seen In Flames, Hired Assassin, some search cards.  But most of those cards have a one-time effect that occurs immediately and then resolves. What's unique about The Crow Is A Tricksy Bird is that it creates a lasting effect––and one that lasts for a very long time, during which many exciting things can happen...

What happens if the top card is an event? I assume as the wording states: put into play, and events are played, u cannot play it. My assumption is that it returns to the top of the deck. Is this correct? Whereas an attachment, character or location can be put into play. Also, I assume a shadows card cannot be put into shadows, only directly into play.

Im so confused with this cards. For example, If someone use Nightmares on character, then I return him on hand and jump back, should it be still blank? If honor-system is in use, it should be same with Nightmares

So, when Ser Gerris Drinkwater put that plot back, Martell should play it?

This is a most excellent question indeed!
My take is that the Martell player simply says "I move the plot that you've chosen to the used pile", and that's it. Still, it is funny how something that was carefully avoided in the rules still made its way into the game :)

It's interesting because it's a lasting effect that affects a card that is both out of play, and in a hidden area.  There aren't too many of those, and they usually side-step the issue with language like "card with the same title" (e.g. The Iron Bank Will Have Its Due).

If I have 2 winter reserves in the used pile would the effect stack, therefore giving +2 gold and +2 reserve on winter plot cards?

That is a super awesome question that I'm surprised has not been asked before.  I assume that it would depend on which copy was chosen, but no matter what the ruling is, it seems like it would have to be on the honor-system.

Bringing out of shadows is not triggering an ability, so Catelyn doesn't block that. She only blocks Actions, Reactions, and Interrupts.

how it works with shadow cards, and bring out of shadows? can my opponent put in play or trigger his abilities?? considering that bring out of shadow is an ability action
