Winged Knight

Rules FAQ

  • If an effect like Valar Morghulis kills Winged Knight and a Lord or Lady character at the same time, neither character will end up in the dead pile if Winged Knight is triggered. Winged Knight will end up in the discard pile, while the other character will be removed from the game.

  • Unlike Lysa Arryn, Winged Knight does not directly remove the character from the game. It is a replacement effect that changes how the original kill effect resolves. When the character would be placed in the dead pile, it is removed from the game instead. You can still trigger other interrupts before the kill effect resolves (for instance, Shireen Baratheon (Core)), as well as reactions to that character being killed (for instance, Funeral Pyre).

  • You can trigger Winged Knight on an opponent’s character if you want to keep it out of the dead pile for some reason (for instance, to avoid Craster putting it back into play).

Rules FAQ

Ser Vardis Egen

Rules FAQ

  • Even if Ser Vardis Egen removes the only attacking character from play, the challenge resolution still proceeds.

  • If the card you place in shadows has the printed shadow keyword, it will end up having two instances of the shadow keyword while it is in shadows, possibly with different costs. When that card is brought out of shadows, its controller chooses which instance of the shadow keyword is used.

Mord

Rules FAQ

  • A quantity cannot be reduced so that it functions with a value below zero. If an opponent’s initiative value is a negative number and yours is 0, they are considered to be equal.

  • You can always use Mord to target one of your own characters, since your initiative value and the initiative value of the player in question will always be one and the same.

  • Blanking Mord’s text will not retroactively cancel his ability. Any character that was blanked by Mord will remain blanked until Mord stands or leaves play.

Maester Colemon

Rules FAQ

  • The attachment does not change control when you move it, so you must still comply with restrictions such as "character you control only", or "opponent’s character only". If the attachment has no such restrictions, you can move it to a character controlled by a different player. Only the player who controls the attachment will be able to trigger abilities on it though.

  • Maester Colemon cannot move attachments that go on locations (for instance, Frozen Solid), because there can never be an eligible character to which such an attachment could be moved.
