In the art it is almost as if the kneeling figure is flipping the Conclave the bird!
thanks jones :P i figured but its fun to break the game from time to time.
Alex, it wouldn't because in the game when a card mentions its own name in the text it becomes self-referential. The Conclave can only trigger off of itself, regardless of the number of The Conclave characters declared in the challenge.
im wondering if having more than one causes the response to trigger multiple times
Love the card and the artwork. I am so building a Maesters deck.
Artwork on the card looks more like a Sith council meeting. Damn FFG for teasing us with the third chapter pack when the first one isn't even out yet (still at the printer? gah!). The card is really nice for a maester deck though, strength 5 for probably 3 to 1 cost (or even 0), depending on your board, plus deadly on intrique and power. Yum.
Nice card, I can see it being a beast in a Maester deck. Love the art on the pack too.
