Core Set #57. Spirit.

Unexpected Courage

The gold standard in hero readying ever since the core set, and one of the reasons blue is so damn strong. It's a similar situation to Steward of Gondor, where they painted themselves into a corner with such a broadly useful card, and the more interesting alternatives just aren't as good usually. You also only get one copy in the core set (thanks FFG,) which means it's proxy time. Remember kids, a standard card is 2.5 by 3.5 inches, and Keeping Count makes a great backing material.

My favorite card! This is the most over powered card in the game. Also the best card in the game. SO many possibilities... Give to highly damaged Gimli, for maximum , Dáin Ironfoot, for great & , for dwarf decks (MY personal favorites), Éowyn in The Dead Marshes, and so on and so forth.

This is undoubtedly one of the greatest cards from the core set and the reason, why people usually buy another core set, however I still think to have only one copy of this makes the game more interesting and challenging and when this comes to hand it's like a Christmas. Extra advantage which makes your play a little bit easier and I think it should stay that way. 3 copies would make this card less special and also the whole game less challenging. But that's just me. Really nice artwork also. verdict: 5/5.

Best card in the game. Seems the only way it would be fair is if it was restricted, but it's not. And for only two cost! I would use it for Beravor, so she can draw two cards for free, Denethor, Gimli, and especially Treebeard.
