Timely Aid

Timely Aid
Type: Event Sphere: Leadership
Cost: 4

Secrecy 3.
Action: Reveal the top 5 cards of your deck and put 1 revealed ally into play, if able. Shuffle all other revealed cards back into your deck.

Set: TRG Number: 3
Quantity: 3
Illustrator: Sandara Tang


Too bad leadership hardly has any allies to draw with this thing... (forgive me, I'm grumpy at the reveal of this expansion having no new Leadership allies...)
Yes...That's true....Generally i think the other sphere have better cards at these expansion than Leadership.(except from Elrohir...)
Keep in mind that this card can put into play ANY ally revealed, regardless of sphere affiliation. So, you can turn 4 Leadership resources into a Gildor Inglorion, Beorn, Landroval, Faramir, etc. Timely Aid is very good for full price, and it is absolutely crazy good if you can pull off the secrecy discount. 5 stars.

Yeah, this is a great card, no doubt about it.
Yes, very good, but also potentially frustrating if none of your top 5 cards are allies.

This card is mandatory in th enew outlands deck, especially if you take the secrecy path also...

Secrecy for outland yes, but not for a normal outland deck. I've tried it and it's not worth the 4 cost to pull in a 1 - 2 cost ally. There is apossibility for Gandalf, but I've always felt like i wasted the resources afterwards.

Guess you could scout your deck with Imladris Stargazer (FoS) but I´ll agree it´s a bit situational without the secrecy.
