A Burning Brand

Burning Brand is bananas good. With the only restriction of having to attach to a hero, It has the potential of cancelling an insane amount of shadows throughout the game. upon it's (early) release it pretty much rendered Dark Knowledge obsolete. It's so satisfying when a sleeping sentry is woken by a burning brand.

The card says "character", not "hero". There aren't many tough lore allies in the game that would benefit, though. — Edheliad 21
IMO, it's pretty much down to #Gildor (3 def), #Haldir (2 def, sentinel) and possibly a couple of Ents (since its not a restricted attachment) as viable targets. But I've had several games its really paid off. Of course there are other ways to get a lore symbol on heroes too, since it doesn't explicitly designate a character with the 'printed' lore icon (Narvi's Belt, Song of Wisdom, hero Gandalf's ability, etc) — Quetzal513 8
