Beorn's Hospitality

Beorn's Hospitality
Type: Event Sphere: Lore
Cost: 5

Action: Choose a player. Heal all damage on each hero controlled by that player.

"... and my house is open to you, if ever you come back this way again." - Beorn, The Hobbit
Set: Core Number: 68
Quantity: 1
Illustrator: David A. Nash


One card that almost always stays in the box. So expensive and situational. Probably the most likely use is in a Hammer and Anvil situation with Gloin (Core) and Citadel Plate (Core) on the Anvil side.
Over-costed and situational - Daughter of the Nimrodel (Core) is so much more effective. As always with over-costed cards, great with Zigil Miner.
For Zigil deck is really useful.
too expensive and situational for solo play, can be useful in multiplayer though
Candidate for worst card in Core, especially with expansion cards released since (and Zigil miner's errata). Decline Beorn's offer of hospitality. 1 star (worst).

It's not the cost that makes this card so bad, it's the number of better healing effects we have access to in Lore. Maybe if this was a Leadership card it would be different but as is...almost unplayable unless you are using it for some kind of combo. 

And I'm not crazy about the picture either, looks like it should be Beorn's Altar.
