Anchor Watch

Anchor Watch
Type: Event Sphere: Leadership
Cost: 2

Response: After an enemy is declared as an attacker against you, declare an exhausted character you control as the defender. Resolve that effect again for each copy of Anchor Watch currently in your discard pile (all chosen characters are defending against this attack).

Set: The Grey Havens Number: 7
Quantity: 3
Illustrator: Adam Schumpert


EDIT: misread the card. 


Still think it's underwhelming but I think it fits better in a Noldor-Discard deck than I did previously (though you still need to get a Leadership Hero or use Narya/Vilya tricks...or just Song of Kings, I guess). 

It sounds like you're using a single card to defend multiple enemies, but that's incorrect. This card allows you to declare multiple exhausted characters as defenders against a single attack... So it's kinda like Stand Together, except that it gives you restrictions on the number of defenders you can declare, and those defenders should already be exhausted. So it accounts for less pseudo reading, but it allows you to attack defense stats up to build a nice walk after a while. In general, though, I agree is not generally worthwhile, cuz it's halfway between reading and Stand Together and nobody plays Stand Together and you must likely won't get to play it with two copies in your deck, so it's not cost effective reading either.

@Jon - it is to defend against a single attack.  So you are combining shields.   I feel like this can be great against certain scenarios that have big attack values and you don't really want to chump block all the time.   The card is definitely interesting, but I agree that it isn't overwhelming.
