Comment from the author:
This card is based on Robert Baratheon's claiming of the Iron Throne and subsequent wiping out of the Targaryen House.

It would be a useful card if your oppontent was playing as Targaryen House because it would render them effectively defenceless. This though increases the cost of the card. However new subjects means more income.

Subject: Too strong...   Posted: June 11, 2010 02:47 am

To be perfectly honest I think that this card too narrow in it's effectiveness and much too strong considering the effect. Thematically it fits, but is way too strong to ever be printed - especially when only one house can take advantage of it.

Errata would ban it from tournament use straight away - due to either people complaining about it's use or the fact that it would force people to never play a Targaryen deck again.

Couple of things that might make it more viable:
- Making it "Limit 1 per deck" (though even then has the possibility to change the flow of the game dramatically)
- Changing it to either affect only characters or locations (this would be significant in making it more viable)
- Probably lowering the initiative value

to be honest.... I believe there is a LCG event already in print that says Response: At the end of Dominance discard all standing characters (cannot be saved). So I'm not too sure about that.

way to strong of a card - could effectively eliminate one house with not much chance to recover - no counter card to play

I have to agree it's overpowered, yet i love the thematical idea. ...how about turning the effect around? After all, you named the card "Rally to Robert" not "Stop the Targaryens". So, I'd suggest making the card a bit mroe complex:

"Search your deck for a number of Baratheon-Characters. The total strength of all these characters combined may be as high as the number of Targaryens in play. Reveal all the chosen cards, bring one of them into play under your control and knelt, and put the others on your hand. Shuffle your deck."

I know it's quite a bunchful of text, but I think the effect would be more interesting then, and it would be far less overpowered!
