True, those cars Are out of play, according to the rulebook, so... we can play that card!! YEAH! Thank you!

However, cards in the discard pile are out of play, and I don't think card text matters for an out-of-play card unless it's an effect that activates from an out-of-play state. This should be the same as using Fortune or Fate to return Beorn from your discard pile (which, according to the comments thread for that card you can do).

Yeah, I know... my example was with a deck that did not have a tactic hero in mind.

That,s what I thought. Thanks! (and I corrected my post, thanks again!)

This card targets the top card of the encounter discard pile, not the encounter deck. But I'm pretty confident that you could not use it to target a card in the encounter discard pile that is "Immune to player card effects," because you would be directly targeting the card that is immune to player card effects (see the official FAQ for more on this).

You can also use any ally that is from a sphere you don,t currently use (like sneak attacking with tactics Beorn when playing Spirit and Lore spheres, to destroy an enemy). 

 

True in general, but your specific example won't work - you'll have to be playing Leadership in order to be able to play Sneak Attack at all.

If the top card of the encounter discard pile has an "Immune to player card effects", can you still play this?

Put Blood of Numenor on him and watch Halbarad quest and defend.

I stand corrected. Interesting. I might have to use that trick sometime.

How many LCG do you know that have cool ponies? I love this card.

I imagine this card would be able to get Goblin Sniper out of the staging area in Journey Along the Anduin?

Tis card is super powerful (gives you a free turn, you can play it and not quest at all) and is totally underused.

You have to Sneak Attack Gandalf BEFORE committing characters to questing.

Saruman

One use I could see for Saruman is he could help with the pesky Gladden Marshlands in Nightmare Journey Along the Anduin. Play Saruman with a Sneak Attack to cancel the threat from Gladden Marshlands, then travel to it and get it out of the staging area for next round.

I think the cost is balanced for leadership. You should be playing Steward of Gondor with leadership and you should be getting lots of resources. This card could be a lifesaver in certain scenarios.

Are you sure you can use Sneak Attack with Gandalf to commit him to a quest after the Questing Phase has started? I don't think this is legal. You commit characters and then do actions. Bringing characters in after the committing part of the Quest Phase will not allow them to commit to the quest. The only exception to this I can think of is spirit Bofur who comes into play exhausted and committed to the quest.

"The first player gains control of attached ally." is a passive effect, so control of attached ally will change when the First Player changes.

Yep. Way better than that poor Faty! And quite useful with the Hobbit Pony attached to him.
