3/5 without Widow's Wail.  4/5 with!

lots of lords/lady in the deck + wildifire assault = 3 power at plot phase

Could the upcoming, in months from now, "Ward" be the final nail in Joffrey's coffin I wonder? Sure, Theon and, to a far lesser extend, Jorah are threatened too, but those two deliver lots of goods to the table (Jorah in particular) not to be included in decks, but Joff?

Depends how many people play it - and 4 gold for attachment that get's dropped on next plot phase with confiscation might not be autoinclude


Plus you don't have to activate it when playing against Starks.

Can Joffery trigger his own ability?

Off his own death? No. There is no moribund state in this game - for him to trigger from his own death, his ability would have ot be an interrupt. As it is, he's in the dead pile by the time you could initiate his ability, and you cannot initiate an ability from a card in an out of play area (except events) unless the card specifically says so.

Will he gain a power even in the case a Lord or Lady of his own faction is killed?
