  1. My opinion on this is that a game that cannot be won due to forced endless reshuffling is essentially lost. It is somewhat akin to that funny situation in Encounter in Amon Din:
  2. There is an extant ruling on this. Essentially, you cannot cheat around Guarded (X), although I suppose the card is attached for an instant before the guard yoinks it away:

    Immunity wins! Tilbo can't be used on "Immune to player card effects" enemies; text of the ruling posted here (for ease of searching it out in the future):

    In my experience, Argalad-Thalin is already a pair that works even down to the 2-player count quite well, e.g., http://ringsdb.com/decklist/view/2719/direct-damage-zone-1.0. Putting Tilbo across the table seems quite plausible, or perhaps making it Tilbo-Thalin with Argalad across the table…

    FWIW I'm in general agreement with @dalestephenson's interpretation here, that we have "read access" to encounter cards, regardless of Immune status. What's problematic for Tilbo is that he uses the word "choose", which, as has been pointed out, is specifically called out in the FAQ on Immunity. We'll see what Caleb says. I suppose this could've come up before in the setting of Fatty and a player who wanted to raise his threat off an Immune enemy, but shockingly, I couldn't find anyone bringing up that particular issue before…

    If you use a Scroll of Isildur to play Rumour from the Earth and return the Rumour to your hand, does the Scroll's bottoming ability still apply? i.e., does that ability still have "access" to the hand (a different out-of-play area than the one explicitly referred to on the card, the discard pile)? (This is all assuming you can even return the Rumour to your hand despite it not having originated from there… But I assume this is doable; otherwise, the Silvan bounce effects would be greatly neutered by the fact that Tree People puts Silvans on the board who have never been in your hand.)

    If I reveal In Need of Rest at a time when no heroes are committed to the quest, does the treachery whiff entirely? Or did I still have to attach it to a hero (of my choice)? The "that hero" of the phrasing gives me pause: does it refer to a hero that's been removed from the quest by the first clause of the effect, or to simply "a hero" (with the first clause whiffing but the second clause still able to fire)?

    Can you trigger the Erebor Guard's Response (lowering his cost) if you're playing him off the top of your deck with hero Gandalf? The possible issue is that, even if considered part of your hand, the Erebor Guard is still the top card of the deck, so does triggering his Response discard himself but still work? Does it discard the two cards below him? Can you not trigger it at all? If you CAN trigger it, when do you decide on whether you even want to trigger the Response? Gandalf's passive ability "instantly" turns the top card of your deck faceup, so perhaps I would use that information to decide whether I want to use the Response or not, if the timing allowed for that. (This one still blows my mind.)

    Haradrim Elite says: "Forced: When Haradrim Elite enters play, it makes an immediate attack from the staging area against the first player." What if you pull one of these guys with a Dunedain Hunter or the new Wait No Longer? Is he engaged with you when he makes his attack against the 1st player? Or in the staging area? Both? Does he make his attack at all?
