Ride Them Down

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.

Interestingly enough, he lets you play the top card of your deck, once per phase.  He doesn't have to be involved in paying for it though.  So you can still pay the costs from your other heroes.

He's like a cards jedi.

correct.  he only produces a "generic" resource that can only be used to pay for neutral cards, unless you are playing it from the top of your deck - allowing him to have the printed icon of each sphere.

I can't use his resources to pay for "sphere" cards though, can I? Even if I have a match with another hero?

 

Let's say I want to play a Winged Guardian for two. I have Elrond and Gandalf. I couldn't do that unless the card was top of deck?

If you don't use Lore and Fast Hitch, he becomes essential.

The card is listed as "neutral" sphere, so I do.

This is how I understand it: Neutral isn't a sphere. So cards which demand your hero to be in any sphere don't work here. To pay for neutral cards, your hero doesn't have to be in any sphere. Baggins and Fellowship sphere can also pay for neutral cards.
