Love of Tales

I find that this card can be extremely useful in songs based decks, obviously. It basically lets you play the first song you played this turn for 1 less resource, but that is only one thing that is great about. I'm sure most players overlook this, but it can be used to shift around resources. You could make a deck based around piling resources on a hero for effects like Blood of Númenor, Lay of Nimrodel and Gondorian Fire for some fun. An idea I made was a song and pipe deck based around Glóin with the other heroes being Beravor and Pippin. I played a Fireside Song and a bunch of songs on Pippin for some massive , and used Beravor for card draw, since songs and pipes are cheap to play. I also threw a Blood of Númenor and Gondorian Fire on gloin with some readying effects for some fun. For another deck, you could do a similar idea with Bifur and Denethor while giving the noble trait to Bifur for a similar effect.

The problem is, there aren't very many different Song deck builds. — Wandalf the Gizzard 1138
