Wait No Longer

Wait No Longer
Type: Event Sphere: Tactics
Cost: 2

Response: At the beginning of the staging step, search the top 5 cards of the encounter deck for an enemy and put it into play engaged with you. Then, reveal 1 less encounter card this phase (to a minimum of 0). Shuffle the encounter deck.

Set: The Mûmakil Number: 5
Quantity: 3

Very cool for Dunedain Decks. Effective cost of 1 considering Mablung and less threat in the staging area. Nice

I assume you reveal one less encounter card even if you don't find any enemy at all when you look at the top 5 cards... Isn't it?

I know LotR and GoT use different logic sometimes - but since they used the format "Do X, Then Do Y", if X doesn't resolve successfully, the Y part doesn't happen.   I'd say that if you don't find an enemy and put it into play engaged with you, the first part wasn't successful, so the rest of the "Then" sentence fails.   But that's just my interpretation.

the rule for "then" are pretty clear. So, for this one, if you don't find an enemy, you don't get the benefit.

So while sometimes handy, occasionally you pay 2 and get nothing.
