This card looks powerful but very hard to utilize. Has anyone successfully found a use for this card? I'd love to use it if I can find a good way.
One thing that crossed my mind was that this card might have some impact for solo decks vs. Escape from Dol Goldur. But I fear it is not enough.

Apart from that I guess you really have to use it with cards that let you know the top of your deck like Imladris Stargazer (FoS). But you still would have to be low on your character count...

Maybe we will see ally-less decks in the future, that rely on heroes like Boromir (TDM) and Prince Imrahil (AJtR) and all kinds of boosting attachments.
