i wonder what people would think the least thematic card would be? i don't want to derail this thread though
i think another one of my favourites has to be mountain goblin - the guy from redhorn gate...you know when i read the hobbit for the first time i imagined that guy, all other artist's goblins don't come close
It takes a bit more explanation than the card I find most thematic.
The horn of Gondor is symbolic in the books. It represents all that is Good in Boromir and ultimately helps him to triumph over his base self.
Obviously with it's iconic use in his death the card was always likely to involve characters dying (leaving play) - I just think that gaining resources off of it is totally wrong for what the card should have been. It makes no thematic sense.
The card itself is perfectly valid I just think it should have been called something different - Grave Cairn would have been a better name for this card than it was for it's own effect.
I hope we get an alternative horn of Gondor in the future. Still in tactics - personally I think it should have been if attached character leaves play, ready all characters in play. The blowing of the horn warned all of the fellowship of the danger and allowed them to react, but it meant the death of the hornblower.
