Gandalf, The Grey Pilgrim (2P122) Wiki

General Strategy

Gandalf, The Grey Pilgrim has an easy to understand card text, he simply draws a card. Is that good? Yes it is. Card advantage has always been a good thing in CCGs. The advantage here can be used in many ways. An extra card might be that companion or skirmish event you need. It can be the extra minion you need next turn, to set up a killer shadow turn. Its power and toughness are on par with most of the other Gandalfs, and its Aragorn signet allows healing by King in Exile and Hard Choice.
