Heir of Mardil

Yes and Yes would be my guess. I'm pretty new to this particular game, but in my experience with other card games anything that happens because a card says it happens is a card effect.

Card effect is not clear to me... does Thorin's extra resource during Resource phase count as a card effect? Likewise, a noble hero with Resourceful?

Until you get the shadow effect that says the defender doesn't count their defense.

Just wish it did not say "hero you control" :( Cant pump resources to other players.

Attach to a hero.

Hero becomes Gondor.

Attach Blood of Numenor.

Defence = over 9000

Good also with Beorn, that goes back into your deck after using is ability to attack for 8.

He can also return to your hand instead of your deck if you want. At the end of the phase, both sneak attack and Beorn trigger at the same time, so you get to choose which resolves first. And after one of the effects has resolved, Beorn is no longer in play and thus cannot be targeted by the other effect.

Oops... yeah, it can't get rid of a surged card, my mistake. Thanks for pointing that out!

This card wrecked me last night. If you commit all heroes to the quest, you are gonna have a bad time.

It definitely gets better if more than one person is running eagles.

3 copies of this in every eagle deck. I usually use this with ranged or sentinel heroes in muliplayer games and get rid of enemies.

Prince Imrahil and Horn of Gondor = Ready for 1 res. You also can browse through your deck, when a special card is needed.

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?

I'm an idiot. When I read "exhaust Steward of Gondor", I thought it meant "Exhaust the hero bearing the title of Steward of Gondor". The card seemed kinda mediocre to me - only after I saw the comments above I realised I was wrong :D

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.
