Wolf of Isengard

Wolf of Isengard
Type: Enemy
Encounter Set: The Road to Isengard
Threat Threshold: 25
Threat Strength: 2 Attack: 3 Defense: 1 Hit Points: 4
Forced: When Wolf of Isengard is dealt a shadow card with a Wizardry effect, either discard 1 card from your hand, or Wolf of Isengard makes an additional attack against you after this one.
Shadow: Deal 1 damage to the defending character.

Set: The Treason of Saruman Number: 52
Quantity: 2
Illustrator: Piya Wannachaiwong



The Wolf of Isengard has a "Forced" "When" effect that in principle should trigger when the shadow card is dealt (i.e. before the defender is assigned) but I cannot check if its shadow card has the Wizardry effect at that point since nothing specifies that I can flip the shadow card to check its Wizardry effects.

Therefore I assume that I can discard the shadow card with the "Forewarned" boon (before flipping the shadow card). On the other hand I think I cannot cancel the Wizardry effect with "Hasty stroke" that triggers after the shadow triggers.

Do you agree with this interpretation?

You are correct in both cases. The Wargs from the core set had a similar forced effect. Nate's official ruling...
