What if I pick a character and my opponent arleady have a copy of this card on the board ? Does it die too ?

That's a good question.  It would seem to me that the answer would be no.  The card being placed in the deadpile will prevent it from being cycled back into the deck by some other card effect.  It's a very strong effect, but allowing you to kill a character already in play would be a bit OP in my opnion especially when you can now have two copies of a plot in your plot deck.

No the rule is you cannot put into play or take control of a unique character in your dead pile. If it's already in play that's ok

I like this a lot. You get ~50% chance to get a kill on the first plot, with the upside of getting a big character.

Putting an unique character into the dead pile will not force to kill/discard the same unique character that is already in play. It will just prevent to play any more duplicates of it and also it prevents such characters to be marshaled or put into play by other effects - there are effects which can put character from play into your hand. Such character would be impossible to play again as a copy of it would be already in the dead pile.


So in conclusion this plot is nice to use when:

1. your opponent is playing lot of unique duplicated characters

2. if you have the abilities to return the opponent's characters from play into their hand (Thing I do for love, King's Landing, Ghaston Grey, even First Snow of Winter...)
