Ok here's the scenerio.
I have one card.
1.My wife intrigue challanges me with Tyrion and wins.
2.I play "warm like rain".
3.She plays "treachery" to counter that.
4.I sacrifice Bran to stop her treachery
5.I kill Tyrion.She has no cards to claim.Legal?

No because your wife was not allowed to play Treachery to cancel your Like Warm Rain because the Treachery cards says:

Quote:
Interrupt: When the effects of a triggered character, location, or attachment ability initiate, cancel those effects.
Therefore it can't cancel your event (Like Warm Rain). So she had no way of stopping you killing Tyrion with that card.

However, as to whether Bran's Interrupt ability would be able to cancel other Interrupt abilities... I think so, but I'm not 100% certain.

1. Legal
2. Legal
3. Illegal, for the reason stated above, but if it were then
4. Legal: each interrupt can be interrupted in turn
5. Claim still happens, and you must discard cards to satisfy it until you cannot anymore. In this case, if you had not cards, you would discard none.

Now if she used "hands judgment"instead of treachery her part would be legal but I'd still win sacrificing Bran right?

Yep, you're Interrupt cancels her Interrupt, thus allowing your Like Warm Rain event to then trigger and allowing you to kill Tyrion.

I love "Like Warm Rain". Just the knowledge of the existence of the card makes other players (I prefer Melee to Joust) cautious about using Intrigue on Stark if there is even a Direwolf Pup out there.

Same here. My wife plays those dirty Lannisters and tries to intrigue the crap out of me.

If your wife won the challenge, she gets to make her claim before an action window opens! You discard your event before you can play it. "Like warm rain" is really good... But it has to survive the discard. That's what balances it.
