I know she's better, but sometimes you have to make your choices based on the spheres you have. :)

Don't forget, you also get to rearrange the top cards that you didn't choose. It could come in handy knowing what cards you'll be drawing over the next few turns.

Personally, I think I´ll much rather take an Imladris Stargazer over Gandalf´s Search anytime for rearrangement powers.

At the very worst, you pay one to draw one, effectively. That's not amazing with things like Daeron's Runes around, but it's not the worst ever.

The trick is you still only get 1 card, no matter how many you look at.   

Trick or downside?

I am a little confused her. What is the price of it? Stand and Fight is straight forward, disgard the card for a ally, but I am not sure of this one.

It's as much as you wish to pay.  Only want to search three cards?  Pay three resources.  Search ten, pay ten, etc.

Actually, these guys are pretty decent if you are running Mablung. pulling an enemy out of the staging area is as good as questing equal to that enemies threat.  And with Mablung, they end up only costing 2.   Also, if someone in the party happens to be playing the leadership Boromir - they can hit even harder.

Yes because it doesn´t say "...have the same printed sphere symbol..." or something to that effect.

That is correct, it would take a single Snowstorm to kill Arwen but both Caradhras and Snowstorm only affect questing characters so you're "safe" as long as you don't assign Arwen to quest.

 

Of course, with Snowstorm being Treachery there are ways to cancel it so it doesn't take effect...

Does this work with abilities that give heroes additional spheres? 

Like Elrond + Vilya or Aragorn + any of his artifacts or... just any song?

Yep. Optional engagement is only referring to the game framework that allows you to choose an enemy and engage it. All other forms of engagement are not considered "optional"

Mostly correct.  I'm pretty sure Caradhras only effects questing characters but would need to look it up to be sure.   Regardless, snowstorm can mean instant death.

That looks right to me.

OK, I'm having trouble figuring out how to play this.

If Willpower = 0: Dead

Arwen Undomiel Willpower = 2

Caradhras = -1 Willpower static

Snowstorm = -1 Willpower Treachery

...

So all it takes is a single Snowstorm in 3b and game over?!?

Just to clarify, Cards like 'Son of Arnor' or other effects can still force engagement with the watcher correct?

Those same effects can trigger Mablung as well!

I just realized wonderful synergy with Longbeard Elder. I think that while both responses occures after commit to a quest, the player may choose which one occurs first. So there is no need of Denethor or another form of scrying. This method is free and reusable every turn.
