Hearken to Me (4R94) Wiki

General Strategy

An unusual cross-culture card which promotes a Rohan-Gandalf Fellowship, Hearken to Me provides powerful bonuses to Theoden, giving him extra strength and vitality at no twilight cost. When combined with Herugrim, any The Two Towers version of Theoden can reach 10 strength and 4 vitality, while The Return of the King versions of Theoden become even stronger. Hearken to Me also makes Theoden immune to Isengard tracker conditions, Sauron conditions and Isengard Men conditions. Players should note that conditions that transfer (Such as Blade Tip and Black Breath) are still effective against a Theoden bearing this card, since it only prevents conditions from being directly played on him.

Hearken to Me, while powerful, can leave Theoden very vulnerable if discarded, as it will cause him to lose vitality (Which can potentially kill him). The Free Peoples player should therefore be cautious when using this condition, as some Shadows have better condition discard than others.
