Might as well call it Blade of Legolas (Core).


Great card and still one of the most reliable ways for a combat-focused Tactics deck to contribute to questing outside of Battles and Sieges. 


But it should be said that it's trending down just a bit for me as we see fewer and fewer Orc enemies (possibly none in the upcoming Dream-Chaser cycle?) Still a good card but it's becoming a little less flexible from a deck-construction perspective. 


But hey, you're probably playing this for the progress anyway so losing the +1 ATT isn't the end of the world.
