In a Gandalf deck, Expert Treasure Hunter does almost the same thing so I wouldn't worry about it...

I would argue that Lord of Morthond requires that he has the printed icon when the response is triggered after the card has been played.

LoM would not care if he has the symbol when the ally in question is played; only when it´s own ability is to be triggered.

I guess this would be the most technically correct answer. So... no LoM for Gandalf!

I'd say yes, because he had the printed icon when you played the card.

Gandalf would have to play the card in order for it to work.

Lord of Mothrond reads "If each hero you control has a printed [Leadership] resource icon, Lord of Morthond gains: "Response: After you play a [Lore], [Spirit], or [Tactics] ally, draw 1 card."

 

If a non-leadership card is played from the top of the deck, Gandalf is consider to have the printed icon. But this timing window sufficient to trigger Lord of Mothrond? You play the card, G. gains the icons and Lord gains the text. Does it still have it in time to trigger the response?

I assume the progress is assigned all at once.  So any overkill dmg/progress is effectively being discarded.

I'm pretty sure they are just lost as you can "over" damage an enemy.

if you're placing more progress tokens on the enemy than he has health, do the remainder go to the active quest, or are they discarded?

I feel it would only really work if you had at least 2 players using songs.  Then it would be worth it to run the Love of Tales attachment in one of them.

yeah, pretty awesome in my opinion, especially if you are running a deck that can also house love of tales, since it is a song.

Are there any song decks yet? I really liked the pipe deck, but I fear there is not a lot of good song cards to make viable deck.

Not too many dwarf decks even use this.  So, it's not an automatic 5-star card.

@jmrburgard - a friend of mine uses pure leadership for his outlands deck, and utilizes Strength of Arms to use Faramir more than once!

I'm pure running leadership. Haven't tried that. Last few games where against the Heirs of Numinor so not a lot of willpower used. Still, questing for 863 million has to be useful on occasion.

Great in any situation because of questing and Action.

and yea, I basically consider 2x expert treasure hunters in any Gandalf deck.  3 if I'm questing with all my heroes regularly.

Expert Treasure Hunter discards the card then checks to see if it matches your choice. So it always provides you the Hidden Cache resources.

Yeah, Hidden Cache + Outlands = POWER.

I have a hefty Gandalf Outlands deck but it never even crossed my mind to use Expert Treasure hunter. 

 

When the deck works perfectly I have Faramir, why too many allies, and then quest for (current record) 49. If I took it out against the Black Riders I would probably die. Horribly.

That's an interesting idea.  It makes triggering that one Lore outlands character's ability a sure thing.

 

Something else I thought of to help resource acceleration.  I like to use Expert Treasure Hunters in any Gandalf deck, but it occurs to me I can add Hidden Cache to the deck and then name the wrong card type so that it gets discarded, giving me a resource boost.

I have yet ti try him with Hirluin and the Outland allies.
