and the other thing I wanted to add (and check cuz I'm only 95% sure about this) is that No Better Use is better still cuz the character you play it with and later tap during cvcc to catch an opponent's character needn't be the one fighting the character you want to catch - heck he doesn't even nee...

Rewarding personally; storing Mithril at Moria is even more rewarding, also in terms of MPs.

No need to beg; it wouldn't help anyway. I resorted to a less intertesting strategy to make Saruman achieve his bourn. I used a squatting strategy; starting company at Weathertop for info, factions and wolves; Saruman and some minions at hero Isengard for the Sapling of the White Tree (and Hidden Ha...

I got a Fallen Wizard deck that indeed turns Moria into a Wizardhaven and attemps to store Mithril there. I use Gates of Morning + Quiet Lands + Rebuild the Town + Mischief in a Mean Way to turn Moria into a Wizardhaven. It's hard to pull off but very rewarding if successful!

The influence check (dice roll) resolves right after Marvels Told does,
prior to that the onguard FW can't be revealed cause the 1st one is still in play,
so there's no room for the onguard FW in the chain of effects leading to the influence check.

what would happen in the following situation...Beorn has a foolish words on him, he reaches Beorn´s house and the opponent plays another foolish words on guard. Then, during the site phase, the opponent declares that he is going to make an influence attemp with Beorn, so he taps Ioreth to play marv...

Has it not been ruled by the netrep that allignment restrictions still apply when using Catch an Elusive Scent / Thorough Search? Fallen Wizards can't normally play minion rings at a hero site. I see no difference between Chambers in the Royal Courts and Hidden Haven, so Catch an Elusive Scent / Tho...

What would happen if a company returned to the site and then left at a later turn?  Would the site be discarded/returned to the location deck then?? The site would return to the location deck then for the same reasons given earlier; due to a company leaving the site, the site is part of a move...

As far as I know; Sites with Chambers in the Royal Court or Misschief in a Mean Way are treated like normal (Wizard/Dark)Havens, so they always return (tapped or untapped) to the location deck when a company leaves them. Sites are only discarded or returned to location deck near the end of the move/...

Usability shouldn't be used as a factor to determine card interpretation.  I mean tons of cards are basically useless. Absolutely. the ability to can any one hazard for the cost of tapping a character is still huge Not any hazard. Great Ship is deffinetly a good card though, but imho no way br...

Where do you see this?  Is this just the way you read it? :roll: Ofcourse it can be read otherwise, and it is indeed possible to conclude Great Ship can cancel only one hazard. No need to argue about that. Imho we should look for ICE's meaning when parsing their texts.   The "during the o...
