Mithril Shaft (1R22) Wiki

General Strategy

This card is a good example of a cycling card, as it can filter unneeded cards out of your deck. This is particularly good for decks with situational cards (What are They?, Elven Cloak, Disquiet of Our People or Cliffs of Emyn Muil) or counter cards (Song of Durin, Stand Against Darkness, Not Feared in Sunlight or Foul Creation) or cards (Usually uniques) where extra copies of the card are useless (Sting, Gimli's Battle Axe, Horn of Boromir, The Choice of Luthien). If you are using this card, it might help to have a shadow that doesn't rely too much on one card (That you will be reluctant to discard, such as Goblin Armory) and try to have multiple copies of most cards (Or at least important cards). This card also creates twilight during the Maneuver phase which, while usually bad for the Free Peoples player, will allow you to play cards like Deep In Thought or Fury of the White Rider if they are in your hand or if you get them with this card (And benefits a host of Two Towers Gandalf cards, such as The White Wizard; Gandalf's Staff, Walking Stick; Keep Your Forked Tongue or Under the Living Earth).
