Wait no Longer

Event. Cost: 2.

Response: At the beginning of the quest phase, search the top 5 cards of the encounter deck for an enemy and put it into play engaged with you. Then, reveal one less encounter card this phase (to a minimum of 0). Shuffle the encounter deck.

Wait no Longer

What if I told you this card could be one of the best tactict cards? I love also hammer-foe, feint, gondorian shield but this one give to tactic a unexpected aspect. Tactic heroes Hama and Mablung gets a real boost thanks to it. It gave a good alternative to the classic Boromir shell.

For me wait no longer is so strong because it gave opportunities to control the encounter deck. When you reveal only one (or zero) card each turn you can plan everything way more easily. Energy can manage the encounter deck with a test of will and this card is the second best choice to ensure that all is going to be okay.

What if this cards whiffs and you don't get an enemy. do you still reveal 1 less card? — BlackArrow 108
My guess is that the word "then" implies that you must put an enemy into play in order for the second part of the card to trigger. However, my question is: why is this a "response" and not a "quest action"? — warlock000 1090
its a response, because you can only do it at the start of the phase. if else, you could combine it better with e.g. gildors council and its more easier to get no staging in a round. — doomguard 1251
