In this faction focus we look at House Tyrell. We will be looking at their strengths, and weaknesses and some of their best cards.
House Tyrell of Highgarden is one of the Great Houses of the Seven Kingdoms, being Lords Paramount of the Mander and the liege lords of the Reach. A large, wealthy house, its wealth is only surpassed among the Great Houses by House Lannister, and the Tyrells can field the greatest armies. Additionally, if they call the ships of the Redwyne fleet, the lords of the Shield Islands, and the coastal lords, they can command a navy that equals if not surpasses the royal fleet of King's Landing.
Highgarden is an ancient seat of rule and the heart of chivalry in the Seven Kingdoms; the Tyrells style themselves 'Defenders of the Marches' and 'High Marshals of the Reach', and traditionally, they have been Wardens of the South and Lords Paramount of the Mander. Their sigil is a golden rose on a green field, and their words are "Growing Strong." Members of the family tend to have curly brown hair and brown or golden eyes.
The Bear and the Maiden Fair is a 0 cost event, you get to look at the top 5 cards of that players deck, and place up to 3 on the bottom of their deck. This is good as it lets you know exactly what will be coming your way, and remove it if need be, for some time anyway. Olennas Cunning is a 2 cost event, it is a reaction after you win an intrigue or power icon, the losing player names a type, character, location, event etc, then you search your deck for a card with a different type and add it to your hand.
The Tyrells are an excellent house, strong in intrigue, and gold, with some good military options when you get them.
