Very tall he was, and his beard was long, and he was grey and old, save that his eyes were keen as stars… —The Return of the King
Set: The Grey Havens Number: 1

I like him all around. Extra draw to mil your deck of less useful cards while fueling the noldor card abilities. I would certainly run this dude in a deck.

If I understand correctly, the card you must discard at the resource phase has to be one of the cards you just drew, not from what you already have in your hand?

True, sadly.


If this was like Daeron's Runes it would be way better but he's still really good in the right deck. 

With the arrival of cards that get more powerful with copies in the discard (or cards like elf light and lords of the eldar) you could have several cards that are good for you to discard. Plus, you have spirit with Cirdan, so you can have plenty of recycling if you need it. I haven't been able to play him yet, but I hope to soon.

It is like King Under the Mountain, which is by no means a bad card. The downside here is that you are one card short, but still you are burning faster through your deck, probably throwing in the discard some Noldor "play from somewhere unorthodox" cards, getting more from the "downside". For me it is his stats that are the greater downside, even a small one. If he could have been 10 - 3/2/2/3 he would have been out of this world in Spirit. Now, as Jono said, he requires the right deck.

It wasn't supposed that this card has an errata?


Could someone please clarify this?

When you draw your two cards, you discard one of those drawn.  If you combine this with Bilbo or Erestor's ability, you would draw all your additional cards, then choose and discard from those.

With the harp, no problem at all. And elven-light is unbelievably gold, you have to try to believe.
