-In The Lord of the Rings TCG, Wizard is the [[Race]] given to these five //Istari//.  Gandalf and the traitor Saruman are the most prominent and powerful, successfully emboldening the forces around them to oppose their enemies.  See the [[Gandalf Culture]] and [[Isengard Culture]] for more information on strategy and use.  Radagast the Brown and his [[lotr00057|Staff]] have been represented as limited-edition [[Gandalf Culture]] card; and Followers representing the distant influence of the two Blue Wizards Alatar and Pallando are also present.+In The Lord of the Rings TCG, Wizard is the [[Race]] given to these five //Istari//.  Gandalf and the traitor Saruman are the most prominent and powerful, successfully emboldening the forces around them to oppose their enemies.  See the [[Gandalf Culture]] and [[Isengard Culture]] for more information on strategy and use.  Radagast the Brown and his [[lotr00057|Staff]] have been represented as limited-edition [[Gandalf Culture]] cards; and Followers representing the distant influence of the two Blue Wizards Alatar and Pallando are also present.
  
-It is interesting to note that a generic [[lotr02029|Wizard's Staff]] possession has been printed a few times as a [[Gandalf Culture]] card with the very particular requirement of "Bearer must be a Wizard", rather than "Bearer must be Gandalf".  It can be surmised that there was to be some card or strategy in place that would allow Shadow players using Saruman to "steal" such a Staff from the Free Peoples Gandalf, and so weaken him.  This however was never used.+There are a handful of cards which are set apart in that they may regularly interact with both Free Peoples and Shadow wizards. While it is rare that the Free Peoples would need to spot a Shadow Wizard rather than Gandalf or Radagast, the Shadow player can use this to his or her advantage when matched up against the [[Gandalf Culture]]. These cards are Perspective, Alatar Deceived, Pallando Deceived, Radagast Deceived, Staff of Saruman, Fallen Istar's Stave, and Throne of Isengard.

This was never directly implemented, though Strange-looking Men (banned or restricted in all formats) is capable of transferring [[lotr02029|Wizard's Staff]] to Saruman.

 +====Cards which Interact with the Wizards====
 +While many cards call out Gandalf and Saruman by name, these cards interact with any Wizard or with either of the [Gandalf] Wizards. Free Peoples cards are overwhelmingly from the [[Gandalf Culture]] while Shadow cards mostly come from the [[Isengard Culture]], with exceptions noted.
