Silvan resource smoothing. Nice simple card for something you will do all the time with silvan's.

That being said, it's a weaker Wealth of Gondor. Silvan is a powerful trait, but clearly the Gondor card is more flexible especially for early game acceleration. It's horrible compared to Unlikely Friendship, but that card needs a dwarf and we haven't had dealings with dwarves since the dark days. Still it's a usable card, and certainly not overpowered, so that makes it a good addition.

A Silvan defender that isn't thranduil, a chump, or feigned voices. Opens up Silvan deckbuilding. Nice to have more options. Nice HP pool for all the Silvan healing, so it's possible to make him a static Silvan.

With Celeborns bonus he can show up and do some serious tanking. Could be interesting.

This card is great. Can really help build some strong combat Hobbits.

The fact that it's guarded with only enemy type allows for some decent encounter deck manipulation. If there is a terrible location or treachery waiting for you, plop down sting and send it to the encounter discard. Guarded cards in general can be really good with scrying.

The direct damage plays great work tactics Bilbo, but with all the action advantage available to hobbits you can still do a lot of direct damage with this card and use the stats on a few hobbits. Sam is also great with Hobbit cloak, sting and his bonuses (not to mention Rosie!) he can be a beefy direct damage tank as well. Frodo works, Tom Cotton, even Fatty. Bilbo and Sam are best though.

Great design. It's really not hard to fit unique Hobbits in a deck. With Hobbits this card goes from good to great. There is a deck thinning aspect to any card that replaces itself, and more than once have I found myself wishing for one or two more Mulligans.

I initially underestimated this card, after playing with it more, I think it's very strong for certain decks. It's less consistent than say Word of Command, but it's a lot more splashable. It's amazing for decks that want to use secrecy it doomed cards early. It really shines in a Hobbit secrecy deck, which frankly needs it for the consistency.

It's nice to have some competition or alternatives to peace and thought and daeron's runes. Fine addition to the card pool.

Fun card, great card.

I must say, I really like this card. Enough that if I have a unique Hobbit and , it'll probably be an auto-include.

Basically, if you control a unique Hobbit, it serves as a mid-game mulligan, as the 1 extra card draw replaces the card itself. So with 3 of these in your deck, it essentially tightens it to a 47 card deck... assuming you're OK doing mid-game mulligans. The drawback is you may already have the cards you want, but simply can't pay for them yet, in which case, Drinking Song is taking up space until you can play it later. So where might it fit well? In decks with several duplicates that may clog your hand, and/or decks with various key cards you want to fish for, and you've no Daeron's Runes at the moment.

Without a unique Hobbit, it's harder to justify (but not impossible) as it no longer replaces itself. Still, in decks with large card draws, it'd be handy for those times when you're holding 10+ cards, but you still can't draw the 1 key card that's been eluding you, so it's time to "roll the dice" and see if it pops up.

I love the idea and artwork, which hints at Hobbits being lax in their vigilance, with the result being you won't quite know what'll happen. Will your replacement hand end up worse? Or turn out better, such as when Pippin gazed into the Palantir?

One of the few cards in the game that I'd truly call a "fun" card, for its name, artwork, and an ability that provides a mid-game mulligan.
