Spend 1 smiley resource? Too bad I haven't got any of these around, the card effect sounded great.

You read the instructions from this set right? It's a ring-bearer resource, of which sphere he is a member of.

Though if you move your eyes alittle and look at the picture up and to your left, it looks like an itty-bitty smiley.

Irony Lost.

do you all play that canceling the effects of the card cancels every effect?  Passive, When Revealed, Etc.?  This is how I interpret the FAQ.  Just looking for some outside opinions because I've used it this way and it seems so incredibly powerful.

You still reveal a new card to replace it, which you then in turn cannot readily cancel like this; might give you trouble this way.

Also this is specific only for the saga quests and as such the designers can build in more unique effects than in a card open to the general deck-building.

There are also things where the encounter deck gets meaner when the One Ring is exhausted.  So if you use this, it still may or may not pan out in your benefit.  Just like actually using the One Ring.
