A Journey to Rhosgobel
In this quest once again we need to manage the speed at which we advance from one quest stage to another. There is some flexibility in hero selection.
In my opinion are necessary.
A solid argument could be made for Denethor instead of Prince Imrahil especially if you have multiple core sets and can then include Lore of Imladris in both decks. Also, Denethor can help you dig through the encounter deck.
There aren't any must have leadership cards, Prince Imrahil's readying effect is cheaper then Aragorn's but can be a little clunky. I don't use him often and include him here mostly because this is the scenario that we get him.
With the healing quest goal, and an encounter deck loaded with treacheries we will mulligan for:
There are 4 Athelas cards in the encounter deck and 3 Forest Grove cards to help you dig into the discard pile should an Athelas come out as a shadow card.
The quest can be frustrating if you don't draw the healing cards you need. Use all the tricks to slow play the quest phases until you find 3 or 4 healing cards (don't forget 2 lore resources per Lore of Imladris)
All of which can be done after revealing cards from the encounter deck before quest resolution.
