Now thats a power card. It would already be worth to play this card for X=0, so all resources generated are just gravy. Even in non-dedicated Dwarf decks, I find that I have 2 or 3 ready dwarfs at the end of my turn from time to time.
X CAN be zero, right?

I am rather annoyed by this card actually. I love it's utility and it's theme but free cantrips are annoying because they are an auto-include in nearly every deck even if there is not a single dwarf in the deck... it gets you one card closer to your Steward of Gondor or whatever other card you were looking for. I wish there was one additional restriction such as requiring a dwarf hero or something.
Worth playing for the cantrip alone which 90% of the time is how I use the card.
Can you exhaust another players dwarfs, or just your own?
