Hereís my synopsis of T&D cards Iíve played with.

Frenzy of Arrows- Broken. Ultra NPE.

Erkenbrandís Horn/Gamlingís Horn/New Chapter/Something Slimy- Not so broken. It kills any swarm or tank, but has little to no defense against corruption. Elven armaments does make the deck broken.

Elven Armaments- Not so broken. Only kills Orc archery. Bold and Cunning, Mumak Rider, etc save Evil Men.

The Faithful Stone- Broken. Unique and spot a Gondor man to prevent would make it balanced. Frodo alone because his buddies died, letís waltz to site nine with all the stuff we hoarded on The Faithful Stone!

Sting of Shelob- Fun card. Not broken, as you rarely get enough twilight to play Shelob and the Sting. More of a twilight pool punisher.

Whisper in the Dark- With condition discarding that the FP has, and the horns, not broken at all. Spotting requirements would be nice, but even then, not broken. Men has no recursion for conditions, so once Namarie trashes them, theyíre trashed.

Golden Perch Ale- MUAHAHA! Overpowered, not broken. Awesome combo with the Shire followers, particularly Hobitton Farmer, Lover of Pipeweed.

Technically, Ottar is on the R-list. Heís there (Iím assuming) because he provides too easy of a way to cycle through your deck.

Ottar + Elrond, Lord of Rivendell = lots of cards every fellowship phase and massive cycling.
Thatís why heís on there, as far as I know.
Never kid about politicians. The more bizarre the joke, the more likely it is to come true.

but what about the rule of 4? not that much cycling. I donít think Saruman deserves Xíed.

Spammers really are amazing creatures. You can learn all there is to know about their ways in a month. And yet, after a hundred years, they can still surprise you. Razz

Saruman by himself wasnít too bad of an idea, however there are too many things that punish Followers in general that are now able to be used more offensively for a shadow because of Saruman.

These cards that have become overpowered would basically all be ok if Saruman wasnít in the mix. Therefor the easies solution is to just X Saruman. This would also take away a card that is basically an insert into all decks card. Saruman has no cultural enforcement, and his ability is overpowered for the very minimal cost you pay for him.

My views on some of the main cards of note:

Elven Armaments, isnít too bad in my opinion. itís very powerful, but it may not be completely overpowered. I would have liked to have seen it unique, but I donít think errata is the best way to go.

I agree with the comments on WHisper, there are alot of counters to it.

Faithful stone is broken. While it doesnít do anything against Nazies, itís main point is it forces the meta to play Nazies. No other shadow can really touch it. Most Faithful stone players will run the new gandy to prevent Uruks from using their event. Can it be played around? Somewhat, however I feel any card that basically forces the entire meta to play 1 shadow culture is not good for the meta. The concept was good, but the implementation was bad. This card shoudl be Xed.

Frenzy of Arrows I actually like, now that Iíve seen it in action. Itís great follower punishment, which is needed with all the new followers. However, it becomes broken when you have Saruman sitting in the shadow players support area. Therefore Saruman is really what is making this card an NPE, otherwise itís just a powerful archery card which I can accept.
