"Here am I, naughty little fly;

You cannot trap me, though you try,
in your cobwebs crazy." - Bilbo Baggins, The Hobbit

Illustrator: Angela Sung


That's what i'm talking about! Refreshing ability! Spirit sphere has some awesome abilities. It's not the sexiest sphere but it's got some crucial abilities up its sleeves.
The one of the main cards that I would want multiple copies of... Almost worth buying another core set...
Yes with this one have so many choices to play........ And almost impossible To build up the good deck without spirit sphere. Spirit have so many good cards and one of the best is U.courage.
This is one of the best cards in the game - in effect, it allows you to double one of your heroes. That's most useful for heroes who either have good questing and fighting abilities, or those that have a good special ability, but one that requires them to exhaust. I routinely use this on Denethor (Core) to allow him to use both his Encounter deck control ability and to use him as my primary defender.

I use this on Elrond (SaF) with Vilya (SaF), pulling high-value cards into play then refreshing to defend against these sorts of things: Durin's Bane (SaF); Hill Troll (Core); etc.

Yeah, "you cannot pass!"

Don't leave home without it, but one is enough.

Honestly I feel this card is OP. Getting 2 on any two of your Heroes makes the game almost GG at that point tbh. 

My house rule  - one core set is implied. so UCourage has thus a secret Limit 1 pre deck.

So are we supposed to guess which cards have the text "implied: limit 1 per deck" or is it too much to ask for it to be actually written out and/or errataed? :P

Players are welcome to play with self imposed handicaps. I, however, am not one of them. You can check the card list for the core box and it will have 1x, 2x, or 3x on each card to let you know which ones were the "rares."
