I've really enjoyed playing with the Noldor and I find I can cover nearly every aspect except combat. Song of Battle/Elrond and some allies/attachments get me there, but I'd love to have a new* hero. Since we don't see one on the near horizon, I wondered, what would a new Noldor tactics hero look like? Perhaps an Elven Spear type boosting ability?

*I realize we have Elladan.

Given the theme of discard, I would expect a Noldor tactics hero to discard a card to ready after attack or defense. Or to do the same for ally noldor only. It wouldn't be very interesting to repeat what's on an attachment. A truly interesting ability would be to be able to play all allies from the discard, but that might be overpowered.

In terms of deckbuilding, my Noldor deck uses Beregond to get tactics resources. Toss in a bunch of free or near free tactics attachments and he takes care of defense, leaving his resources for offensive tactics allies. I use Miruvor to transfer resources to him from Arwen if necessary.

Turns out Esseb did touch the flag. Don't tell him I said so though.

A tactics Glorfindel could happen, though he hasn't really matched the Noldor discard idea, but something discarding to ready could happen.

Discard two cards to Feint an enemy, limit once per turn? I dunno, card design is hard.
