# of Comps in play
« on: March 29, 2010, 04:22:12 PM »
Ok say that I have 11 Comps in my deck I know that I can only have 9 out at a time but do you count comps in the dead pile also? So like I have 6 comps out and 3 dead am I allowed to play another one from hand?

Never had much hope. Just a Fools Hope.

Yes companions in the dead pile count. So no you can't play any more than nine companions total. Unless using specific cards like Falls of Rauros which doesn't actually let you have more than nine companions in play at once, but does let you play that tenth companion if needed.

I know alot of people that use Gamling, Defender of The Hornburg to grab Erkenbrand's Horn and a couple of followers, kill him then use Falls of Rauros to bring out someone better than Gamling.

Note that this counts the number of companion cards in the dead pile, so if you have multiple copies of the same companion in the dead pile (due to, say, Sent Back or Borne Far Away), this counts each of those copies.

Wrong.

Actually, Sam is correct. If you have three copies of Gandalf in the dead pile due to Sent Back, then that counts as three killed companions.

And you can prove it from a different point of view: if you have like 3 Dwarf Guard in your dead pile, you're only able to have 6 other comps out, right? Seems logic to me.

How does Falls of Rauros work? Does it mean a dead pile companion simply goes to Discard?
A wizard is never late...nor is he early. He arrives precisely when he means to.

No.  The companion doesn't get moved to the discard pile, it is removed from the game.  It is, in effect, as if you never had that card in your deck once this happens.
Do not take dragons lightly.  They are heavier than you think.

which means you can play "10" companions, still 9 since 1 was removed from play.  Very clever

Right.  The number of companions is reduced since the card is not "around" anymore.

You can also play another copy of the companion you removed from the game, which can be useful if your deck revolves around a certain companion and he happens to be killed.
