Fear Cuts Deeper Than Swords

Rules FAQ:

  • This event can only cancel an ability with the word "choose" in its text (so it won't work with Tears of Lys, Ghaston Grey, etc.).

  • The targeted Stark character doesn't have to be kneeling (standing is not a cost here, unlike with Ser Barristan Selmy).

  • You can use this event to cancel your own ability (from an event or a card in play) that targets a Stark character you control, just to stand that character.

  • You cannot use this card to cancel the ability of Ser Gregor Clegane or The Tickler (because of the word "Then": when the ability initiates, it doesn't target anything yet, and when it does target, it has already initiated some time before that).

  • You can use this card to cancel Intimidate or Stealth (keywords are abilities).

But Ser (Gregor) and The Tickler cardtexts both say choose? Can you cancel post-then? — s.the.dornishman 1
Both pre-Then and post-Then parts *initiate* at the same time. You choose a target during the *resolution* of the post-Then part, and by that time the effects have already initiated. — mplain 231
Does it stop Breaking Ties? — Stathis 1
This would stop Balon Greyjoy (KotI) from putting a Stark character into play and it would stop Yoren (TB) from Stealing a Stark character. It does not stop Ghost of Highheart's or Melisandre's (GtR) discard effects: the initiation (looking at the hand) has already succeeded by the time a Stark character is targeted. — celric 409
