Attach to a hero. If attached hero is Aragorn, he gets a tactics icon.
Response: When attached hero attacks and destroys an enemy, all other enemies get -2 def until the end of the phase.
That would be pretty nice, especially for the Carrok and 1st Hobbit Saga quest, for instance, among others.
Although, I'd almost want Anduril to be something different. Maybe start with a whole quest around it, but certainly come out with an attachment card that you can put on Aragorn, rather than ending up with only an objective or treasure (I also want this for Glamdring, Sting, etc). Maybe the banner could be the Tactics version of the "add a resource icon to Aragorn" instead? I hope Anduril's a strong card, in any case.
I can't see this being able to attach to any hero. The uber-nerd in me screams that it needs to be an Aragorn-only attachment (although if they ever DO make any Silmarillion-based quests and Isildur or other appropriate persons in Aragorn's lineage are in the game, I guess it could be carried by them)... But then again, they let the Ring of Barahir be played on any hero, so....
I know this seems counter-intuitive, but how about it ending up as a "defense into offense" kind of attachment? Sort of a mini-Sam ability:
Anduril (Spirit attachment) - cost: 2 resources
Artifact. Item. Weapon.
Attach to a hero. If attached hero is Aragorn, he gains the resource icon
When Anduril enters play, discard all copies of Sword that was Broken from the game. Sword that was Broken cannot be played while Anduril is in play.
When attached hero exhausts to defend, ready them. They gain +1 for the remainder of the round. If attached hero is Aragorn, he also gains +1 and +1 for the remainder of the round.
