Attach to a location.

The Mathom-house it was called; for anything that Hobbits had no immediate use for, but were unwilling to throw away, they called a mathom. Their dwellings were apt to become rather crowded with mathoms... - The Fellowship of the Ring

One resource for a three card draw is fantastic, especially in the strong questing Spirit sphere. It's not restricted so put multiple Mathoms on the same location for a big draw.
And if Asfaloth (FoS) is in play (especially on Glorfindel (Core) or Glorfindel (FoS)), it's realistic to explore a location in the planning phase and use the drawn cards immediately.
This is a great way to give card draw to tactics players. Timing can be tricky however, to ensure that you clear the location when the tactics player is the first player.
Fantastic card to give card draw to Spirit decks. I added three to my Spirit deck. Great card!
