A free attachment with the all important item and weapon trait. Your Warrior of Dale allies will thank you for this attachment with card draw if you are playing Brand son of Bain. What Dale lacks right now is raw attack stats and it's a welcome addition. I'm never upset to see it as it generally replaces itself instantly. Good solid card.

Does this card even need a review to say how good it is?

Any Dale player should be running 3 of this card in its current state because it is so bonkers. To the point where you can run Dale without Traffic from Dale comfortably. I will always mulligan my opening hand, no matter how good it is, if I don't see this card. For Dale this is your comparative Steward of Gondor and fits perfectly on Brand son of Bain head.

It allows you to do what Dale does best and play attachments. You should be playing this card in Dale. Seriously.

This actually reads "Attach to Redwater Sentry or Guardian of Esgaroth."

Jokes aside, This is solid even at full cost and fits right at home with anyone that has Sentinel like Beregond. The fact it isn't restricted is what makes this card a power play and if you are the kind of person who likes to take damage for your team. This card is your poison. A worthy include in most decks with access to leadership.

This guy is subtle. At first glance he doesn't seem that good. But he actually fits right at home in most Dale decks. He gets your attachments where they need to be and that alone is worth looking at. You can use him to move attachments from your allies to Brand son of Bain for a further reduction with King of Dale. So you can play more on Dale characters without attachments to trigger Brand son of Bain and his draw. Or in multiplayer I've used him to pass cards like Magic Ring to my other members of my fellowship. Now, I never leave home without him in my Dale decks.

A Elbereth Gilthoniel is another one of those cards that is horrendous at full cost, and awesome in secrecy. Many eligible decks don’t even use it in secrecy, because the threat setting is so counter-productive to the secrecy deck. However, when you think about it, it’s really not that bad. If the enemy is engaged with you, it’s engagement cost is probably lower than your threat; because if it wasn’t; you would leave it in the staging area. So basically, this card kills an enemy for free in a secrecy deck. Provided you can weather one attack from it of course. Try it out next time you play a secrecy deck!
