Bent on Discovery (1R206) Wiki

General Strategy

In a game where hand extension is a foremost priority, Bent on Discovery is a helpful condition that draws a card at the beginning of the Shadow phase. Being non-unique, four copies could, in theory, extend the Shadow player's hand by four cards each Shadow phase; however, Bent on Discovery comes with a downside. At the end of each Shadow phase the player must exert a Nazgul or discard the condition. Naturally, directed wounding is a powerful counter to the slightly maimed minions.

Bent on Discovery, like The Ring Draws Them, found new life with the Enduring keyword introduced in the Siege of Gondor expansion. With enduring Nazgul who gained strength for each wound (and could use those wounds to terrible effect) Bent on Discovery was an easy way to enter the maneuver phase with exertions on the Nazgul characters, essentially turning its weakness into an advantage. That said, Ithil Stone, released during the Reflections expansion, somewhat makes Bent on Discovery obsolete for a general purpose deck, although it has the disadvantage of being unique, unlike Bent on Discovery.
