A very good way to fight the shadow
Yeah, a pretty good defensive card for your Lore Heroes. Let's you plan your defenders a lot easier.
Straight up 5/5 because of the ability to avoid nasty shadow cards (Like Sudden pitfall) as well as be able to smartly calculate your defence (too many times have I lost heroes to Lore cards).

If you plan on using any Lore characters for defense this card is a MUST.

There are terrible shadows effects on this game and "A Burning Brand" has saved me many times. I almost always add two o three copies of these on my Lore decks.

Yup, it's the strongest card besides the Steward of Gondor, maybe even stronger than unexpected courage

But for it's requirement it must go on a lore character it would be the best shadow suppression in the game. I have seen many fine Elrond's using this but relatively few other heroes.

I think it's worth including Song of Wisdom to equip your non-lore hero. Did it in many decks and it payed off every time.

And remmber that it's also playable on lore-Allys

I use this with Gloin + Narvi's Belt, helps keeping him from shattering from unlucky shadow card.

Something that most people miss: "Attach to a lore CHARACTER" not just hero.

That's why we were talking about the Song of Wisdom and Narvi's Belt

 

EDIT: Sorry, missread. Sure, you're right.

I like to combine it with the silvan tracker, easy defend math without any danger and then self-healing
