Eddard Stark – Lord of Winterfell (2 / 5) Ned Stark, the most honorable man in the North. He brings some of the most powerful cards in the faction to bear, with one notable downside. He has to be alive to use them. It is possible to get a single unit containing Ned Stark to achieve nine Melee Attacks in a single round, and if you manage to pull it off, please let me know how it goes! I have yet to live that Ned Stark dream. How can you do this you ask? Simple! So simple in fact, there’s going to be an entire article on how to do it. It’s not exactly doable, as it requires you to be engaged for eight of the nine Attack Actions, and if you haven’t killed your opposing unit or your opponent is cheerfully feeding you units to attack, then let me know how you did it! If you haven’t guessed by now, two out of three of Ned’s cards give his unit an out-of-activation Attack Action. Fury of the Fallen allows you to charge or perform an attack when another unit was attacked, and Northern Defiance allows you to perform an Attack Action when you pass a Morale Test.
Lead by Example helps the Bastard Girl’s in-activation Melee Attacks significantly, and lets you double-team a poor and hapless defender. Now, with all of this glowing praise for Ned, why did I rate him a 2?
He death has a huge impact on gameplay. Once you pull him off the table, Fury of the Fallen and Lead by Example become dead cards, taking up space in your hand and deck.
