this card has broken the game.... it should be banned.
It indeed could give a lot of resources and i can imagine that in a tournament game (if it ever comes) it can be "banned" but in a coop game it can be usefull. But if you don't like it, don't use it in your deck. Problem solved !

I wouldn't say its broken the game - it requires luck or additional cards to setup in order to work effectively. I think its a great card.

I also disagree that it "breaks" anything. It takes several rounds to get set up properly. Steward of Gondor or Gloin/Daughter of Nimrondel is much more reliable while lacking in an eventual huge payoff.
I see a combo with Gandalf's research
A very good combo is with Gildor Inglorion (THoEM),especially if you have at your hand another card with 4 or 5 resource cost..it is very control resource production combo...
Another small combo is the miner with Keen-eyed Took.
The FAQ 1.3 has errataed this card. It should read:
“Action: Exhaust Zigil Miner and name
a number to discard the top 2 cards of your deck. If at
least one of those cards has cost equal to the named
number, choose a hero you control. For each card that
matches the named number, add 1 resource to that
hero’s resource pool.”

An errata that's good for the game. He could be a little too good at times.

Yeah, now he's merely a good card. 1-2 resources a turn from a 2-cost ally is still solid. It just isn't absurdly powerful. It's also easier to just throw into a deck (instead of having a deck built around it), since it can still provide some benefit but can't really be the cornerstone of a massive combo engine.

Since this is not an unique card, you can have three of these on the table. And this would be quite a power. Even after the errata.

My favourite card from Khazad Dum, then i got Imladris Stargazer...oh boy i have fallen love with him :P

To me this card would be 5/5 because resource generation is really important to me, but he only have 1hp what i don´t like. So 4/5.

Just wish it did not say "hero you control" :( Cant pump resources to other players.
