House of the Undying

Rules FAQ:

  • If another copy of a unique character in the chosen opponent's dead pile is already in play, either owned or controlled by you or by the chosen opponent, that character cannot enter play, neither as a character nor as a duplicate, and so it remains in the dead pile (see FAQ).

  • If there are two or more copies, by title, of the same unique character in the opponent's dead pile, House of the Undying will not put any of them into play.

  • Characters directly moved from play to the dead pile are not considered to be killed (similar to Heads on Spikes).

  • The owner of the cards (not the current controller) chooses in which order they are placed in the dead pile (relevant for Ghosts of Harrenhal).

What happens if one character in the dead pile is also in play at the same time (because of Heads on Spikes discarding this character, while this character is in play) ? — Benji 764
That character will not be able to enter play because his owner already has another copy of it in play. See FAQ (1.3): — mplain 220
What happens if The Hound wins a challenge, and the controller does not discard a card to keep him in play? Does he go back to the owners hand and remain out of the dead pile?? — nflenz 1
Yes. Cards always go to their owner's out-of-play areas (not their controller's), and when a card leaves play, all lasting and delayed effects affecting this card expire for it. See RRG entries for "Ownership and Control" and "Leaves Play". — mplain 220
