Wow, this is nasty. The shadow is just game-ending.

Little overpowered, isn't it?
I don't like cards like this one. One card shouldn't ruin all plans a player can make. How can you prepare for this card? No questing, no defending? That is too much I think.

Way overpowered, one card that pretty much ends the game. You can attempt to mitigate its arrival, but only so much. Spirit is now a guaranteed sphere when facing this card.

This is card what you save the Hasty Stroke for, no matter what...

And yeah, way too lame for normal effect or shadow.

We play four player with two sets of hasty and test. It still hoses us some of the time but at least it's cancelable.

Worst card in the entire game. Lots of people have called for this card to get nerfed with errata but I have personally errata-ed this card by removing it from the encounter deck. Problem solved.

Also called cheating.
But hey it´s a solo game so it´s all good (unless oc you claim superiority over the quest).

Well, holy... This just came out of nowhere and sucker punched me in the kidney.

Include Eleanor and Balin / Erkenbrand. (And every other shadow/encounter cancellation effect in the game - and yeah scrying might help out, since if you're playing solo - you are, right - this will be the only card that shows up this turn, thus no additional enemies, which means no additional combat danger)

Burning Brand is most excellent here.

I a bit cheated with this card yesterday, where I played feint on enemy once this card was revealed as shadow card ( even though I know I should have played feint before shadow card was revealed ). really it is killing the game, too much situational either you have cancel for shadow card or not.. Probably worth to add Dark Knowledge into your decks for this encounter
