I find a hard time finding a use for this card unless I have a lot of ally readying. Sure 3 defense with 3 health is great. 3 resources is reasonable for that, but then you only get it once. Same with the 3 willpower, although that's rarer for Lore.
If I want to heal lots of damage from a hero, there are other options (Lembas in particular if you have elves, then you get action advantage. If I want to discard a condition I'd rather play Miner of the Iron Hills personally, saving the resource and getting a permanent chump blocker. If I want to draw cards there are obviously better options in Lore, although not always both players, Deep Knowledge is great but sometimes you don't want the threat.
I guess the only argument in favor is the flexibility, similar to Core Gandalf. Although he has more powerful selections and can be played with any resource type. If you're building a One Deck maybe you would include this over those other cards, but I'm running most of those in my lore decks anyway.
