There's for quite long in the environment and most -if not all- of us have tested it. What is your opinion guys? Speaking from a purely solo perspective, I 'm personally a little underwhelmed by it. I tried it a lot in my Outlands deck to help me grab my Outlanders, LoV or the Steward sooner than later. That deck also sports Beravor, 3 X Daeron's Runes and 3 X Hunter of Lamedon to aid in the card drawing aspect (3 X Gandalf and 3 X Sneak Attack theoretically contribute too, though I almost never utilize his card drawing ability - I find the rest of the aforementioned cards to be enough and Gandalf can be put to better use elsewhere). In terms of threat, my starting one is 23 (a low score for 3 Heroes) and its reduction comes from Gandalf (this is his ability I use the most, though the damage dealing is used too) / Sneak Attack / Elrond's Counsel. With the combination of the above, one would say that the Doomed 2 from DK is not a big deal. Well, let me tell you, IT IS. Many a time I found myself holding the event in my hand and not daring to use it out of fear of raising threat in alarmingly high levels or engaging an enemy I am not ready to face. When I included the card in the deck (twice - I tried it thrice also, but found it to be an epic overkill), I thought that at early game it wouldn't hurt, plus it would allow me to establish my board presence sooner. In practice, I find its drawback a severe one for what it grants. I 'm starting to think maybe it would be better to replace my two copies of it with two copies of We Are Not Idle, purely for its deck thinning effect (there are no Dwarves in my deck). The comparison between the two shows that DK grants a card more with a threat raise of 2. Is an extra card for a raise of 2 that much of a bargain? Your thoughts concerning DK as itself and then compared to We Are Not Idle's deck thinning effect are more than welcome.
