Abusing Await the Advent

Since non-stage cards cannot affect the MPs of a Fallen Wizard, play Await the Advent on a character and you'll still get the character MPs for no cost to influence.

... but you have to stay at a non-haven site where you may not play stuff (of course, you can play the await after playing the faction) and you're a sitting duck for hazards. Looks like something to abuse, though.

Non-stage resources can't MODIFY a FW's mp's.
One can argue that AtAoA doesn't modify mp's; it just states "mp's don't count"
It's obvious ICE never considered this kind of interpretation.
Like the "scouts fetch majors at haven" nonsense this just unbalances the FW alignment!
...unwise to presume the death of Durin's Bane, for Gandalf only saw him fall, not die...

What's the "scouts fetch majors at haven" referring to?

If you play Hidden Haven on (for example) Barrow-downs, you can still tap a scout to play Thorough Search or All thought bent on it to allow the play of a major item.
