Mellario of Norvos

Rules FAQ

  • If you control Doran Martell, he will be protected against plots like Valar Morghulis, Valar Dohaeris, or Wildfire Assault, even if those plots cause Mellario to leave play. Doran will also be unaffected by passive effects on plots such as At the Palace of Sorrows, Blood of the Dragon, Grand Melee, or The Bloody Flux.

  • While Doran is technically immune to The Pointy End, “peripheral entities” associated with him (such as attachments, tokens, abilities originating from him, or duplicates) are not themselves immune. And since The Pointy End does not really target Doran (it only chooses him as a referential target), you can use it to discard attachments, duplicates and power from him.

  • If you reveal Varys's Riddle, the When Revealed ability you initiate with it is not considered to be an opponent’s plot effect, so Doran will not be protected from it. On the other hand, if an opponent reveals Varys’s Riddle and initiates the When Revealed ability on your revealed plot card, Doran will be protected from it.

Ser Addam Marbrand

Rules FAQ

  • Ser Addam Marbrand can react to himself entering play.

  • A character being "discarded from your hand" (or "discarded using pillage") and that character "entering your discard pile" share the same reaction window.

  • It does not matter how the character enters your discard pile. It can be through claim, being discarded from play, pillage, reserve, discarded duplicate, a card effect like Gold Mine, etc. Ser Addam Marbrand can return the character to hand in each of those instances.

  • Ser Addam Marbrand only interacts with the discard pile, so if the character is moved to another area by something like Heads on Spikes, Ser Gregor Clegane (TKP) or Citadel Archivist (remember that the first player has first opportunity to trigger a reaction), you can no longer use Ser Addam to return that character to hand.

Left-Hand Lucas Codd

Rules FAQ

  • The reaction is triggered immediately after defenders are declared (or, in this case, not declared), before the action window opens.

  • If defenders are declared but do not contribute any STR to the challenge (due to Balon Greyjoy (Core), for example), you cannot trigger Left-Hand Lucas Codd. You also cannot retroactively trigger his reaction when defenders are removed from the challenge (by Shrewd Diplomat, for example).

Godry the Giantslayer

Rules FAQ

  • You can trigger Godry's reaction after you play a R'hllor event (such as Seen In Flames), but you cannot trigger the reaction after a Knight or R'hllor card comes out of shadows, comes into play using ambush, or is put into play through any other means. Putting a card into play does not constitute marshaling or playing that card.
