Wealth, power, and cunning comprise the core of the Lannister Faction. More so than anyone else, the Lannisters understand that it is not raw brute strength that wins wars, but the breaking of your enemy's will.
When playing House Lannister, players must master the arts of manipulation and deception, utilizing devastating Tactics Cards and Morale-affecting abilities to route their foes from the battlefield, rather than slaying them outright. Players who enjoy controlling the ebb and flow of the battlefield will naturally be drawn to this faction and its Commanders, ranging from the intimidation tactics of Tywin Lannister, the Lord of Casterly Rock, the punishing counterattack-style of Jaime Lannister, the Kingslayer, to even the raw savagery of Gregor Clegane, The Mountain.
For those players seeking to achieve not through combat, but by dominating opponents with your will and cunning, House Lannister is the faction for you.
