wait how exactly would it stop a surged card? It can only be used before characters are committed to the quest and all it does is reveal one less encounter card during staging. If an encounter card with surge is revealed surge will most definitely still trigger. In solo it is literally useless unless it is used on a special quest stage that reveals multiple cards during staging such as Stage 2 of Journey Along the Anduin or Stage 4 of Breaking of the Fellowship.

In two player or more however this card is very underrated. Easily a very powerful card if used correctly.

Thanks, I am glad to know that I've played it correctly.

You can only resolve one attack at a time during combat, so unless you are using a card like Stand Together, you will only ever have one character defending against a given attack. With respect to your question, allies cannot defend against Snow Warg while Snow Warg is attacking (i.e., only a hero can be declared a defender vs. Snow Warg). But allies can defend as normal against other enemies that attack before/after the Snow Warg does.  Make sense?

It could get rid of a surged card in a solo game, I guess. If your threat is high or if your stuck with ennemies (it costs 3!).

Even then, I don't think it's worth it in solo. Too situational.

Is it the same as: Allies cannot defend against Snow Warg? Or that allies cannot defend against all enemies while this guy is attacking? 

I am confused by this wording.

Anything that controls the encounter deck (especially in solo) is welcome... and cannot be stopped by those infamous "immune to player card effects" cards.

Wait, there is a minimum of 1. So it doesn't have effect in solo, does it?

Vilya is an awesome card and reflects how powerfull Elrond with the ring was. And with Gandalf hero in the deck? Oh imagine the possibillities.

One of the most underrated cards in this game ;). Highly thematic for Black Riders (and even better with Pipin after a Good Meal).

Exactly, he just became a late game card, which is still usefull in pure dwarf decks (I use him in mine).

Pity he hadn't killed just one more for you, given his flavour text and all :)

Yeah, maybe I should have waited :-) but it was only 2 player game. I think in 4p this guy could be even beter in this quest.

Thalin + Sneak Attack Longbeard Orc Slayer = lots of dead orcs with 2HP. I killed 4 orcs with this guy once in 7th level.

When I am playing secrecy, I am sad that the willpower boost last only until the end of the phase. So you use it to lower your threat below 20 for Resourceful and then the willpower bonus is a waste. But this is only a nitpick on otherwise great card!

I think that he really needed that nerf - there is no other ally with 3 cost and 4 attack. I still use him as a late game finisher and he works pretty well. Last night I played him and he got 5 attack, not bad for a 3 cost ally!

Yep Arwen is a solid way to use this card if you may not be using Glorfindel or Galadriel.

Just slot him into a deck with leadership (no need to incldue tactics) because you can get him into play with A Very Good Tale and with Sneak Attack.

Since it doesn't specificy between "ally" or "hero" like some cards do, this works for any unique Noldor character (ally or hero) that you might control.  But they do have to be in play.
