As a cog in fruit loops to discard your opponent's deck and hand, I'd say Change of Plans has its use. All other times, Shield of the White Tree seems better.

Stern people plus change of plans? Maybe there is something there, probably not :P On that note, I don't think I've ever seen CoP played.

Shield of the White Tree :)

Safe Paths also has a twilight cost of 5 that you have to pay the same turn. Also 3 exerts that you may not even be able to pay (and you still discard Smeagol). I think it's handily worse.

EDIT: been on the previous page when I posted this :p

You weren't around before the X list, then. Using sets 1-4, it was very common for people to set up a hand with Saruman, Keeper of Isengard and multiple Uruk Regulars and other cheap Uruks. At Deep of Helm it would just kill people. At the time, Change of Plans was the way to break the buildup. My playteam and I almost played it in a PSQ (mid-level event), things were that rough.

My answer is The Weight of a Legacy , which was too expensive even for set 1. As Kralik wrote 10 years ago, even if I knew my opponent was starting Aragorn, TwoaL does not go in a Sauron deck.

Safe Paths is straight suicide. There are cards that don't do a thing. This one kills you.
There's a certain irony here. Smeagol's dark side is showing again :-?
