Lets assume character has 2def 1HP (current).
Enemy dares to attack STR2. He gets his Shadow card.
I say "Kiss my Arrow" and Exhaust my character to defend.
Than the shadow effect rises his STR by 1. Now apart from murmuring "I'll kill You, I'll kill You, I'll kill You..." i see some options:
in hand I have the card (EVENT of course) that for some resources can heal some wounds and on the board lays Glorfindel with 1 res token on him.
A) my character dies?
B) i can use any of my options?
C) I can use only Glorfindels ability?
D) I can use only my card ability?
