Boy do I love Dale! Brand's card draw and willpower, Bard is a great shopper AND he recycles! This guy, though, he really keeps the Dale decks going.
Play him, draw (most likely). Throw a cloak on him, draw. 2 cards played, 2 cards drawn. Love it! As a bonus, you can name the cost you want to look for. Need a 2-cost ally? Go for it! Need a 0-cost attachment? Bet you'll find it! How about that 1-cost event? He's there for you!
He's shirtless and he's heating up the waters just like he's heating up your board state by catching that Guardian of Esgaroth.
