I don't love a fighting Shadowfax, personally, as I can only picture the horse being hewn in two by the wimpiest of orcs.

Boromir seems fine. A strong card for a strong character.

Gate of Gondor is neat, but I almost wonder if I would ever transfer it to a minion, only keeping it out to keep my conditions safe.

By His Arts is a card that was probably needed in the post-Reflections world. Doesn't seem overpowered.

I cannot imagine why a deck would have multiple copies of Elven Rope (if even one), but I guess it is fine for replaying a discarded Hobbit Sword or the like if you have another copy in hand.

I tried to avoid that by giving Shadowfax strong enough stats to be able to trample some of the weaker minions. But yeah, Shadowfax might get axed.

Boromir is fun to write cards for. It feels like he got screwed over in the game. I'm still salty about the DoMT reprint in Black Rider.

Gate of Gondor is neat, but I almost wonder if I would ever transfer it to a minion, only keeping it out to keep my conditions safe.

I hadn't considered that but I like that it could be used that way.

Awesome!

It's a mostly-useless card, to be sure. I'm writing these randomly so sometimes I land on a page and point to a quote and end up with a go-nowhere card.
