If any card is to go on the restricted list it's this one. non-loyal and 1 gold is beyond insane. I've played this to death and it's in all honesty ruining the fun of the game for me and opponents.

If this was 3, even 4 gold, I would still run it!! In combination with a high card draw turnover (Secret Schemes works particularly well) the effect is devastating. Unless you're playing against Greyjoy, this sucks the fun from the game. I've now dropped it from my decks only to reserve fun left in the game.

I feel the text was put together with little consideration. If X equaled the printed card cost of the discarded card this would work much better. I've never had the situation of the X=3 higher causing any kind of struggle to me.

The black cells was a card from v1.0 that I had the same issue with (1 gold shadow). I won a tournament of this and some lousy shadow cards that entered and exited in a loop. Spoiled the game.

At this point this plot trumps all others as an auto-include for me, even Valar Morghulis. Maybe if you were playing a hyper fast rush deck that plans to win no later than turn 3, then maybe I wouldn't use it..... but even then, you might as well have it around, as you'll really want it if things don't go according to plan.


I don't to speak about the card but there is a little mistake, the name is BesIEged, not BesEIged.

Thanks for your works guys :) !

If I have Margaery Tyrell (HoT) and i force an opponent to kneel a character, must he declare a separate character to be a defender if this plot is in play? —

can i put a copy of a card? for example.. i sacrifice a BRAN STARK to cancel a event and play HARD AS WINTER to put another BRAN from my hand (not the same).. .can i?

If Second Sons is put into play by Flea Bottom, at the end of the phase the Forced Interrupt on Second Sons will resolve before the delayed effect of Flea Bottom, so Seconds Son will move to the discard pile, not the bottom of the deck.
