Elanor Gardner (The Lord of the Rings: Tales of Middle-earth #387)

Elanor Gardner {3}{G}

Legendary Creature — Halfling Scout

When Elanor Gardner enters the battlefield, create a Food token.

At the beginning of your end step, if you sacrificed a Food this turn, you may search your library for a basic land card, put that card onto the battlefield tapped, then shuffle.

Her father Samwise gave her the Red Book for safekeeping before he sailed into the West.

Notes and Rules Information for Elanor Gardner:
  • Elanor Gardner doesn't need to have been on the battlefield when you sacrificed a Food this turn. For example, if you sacrifice a Food during your first main phase and you cast Elanor Gardner during your second main phase, its last ability will trigger at the beginning of your end step. (2023-06-16)
  • Elanor Gardner's last ability will trigger only once during your end step, no matter how many Foods you sacrificed this turn. However, if you haven't sacrificed any Foods this turn as your end step begins, the ability won't trigger at all. It's not possible to sacrifice a Food during the end step in time to have the ability trigger. (2023-06-16)
  • Food is an artifact type. Even though it appears on some creatures in other sets, it's never a creature type. (2023-06-16)
  • If an effect refers to a Food, it means any Food artifact, not just a Food artifact token. For example, you can sacrifice Lembas, an artifact card with the Food subtype, to activate the last ability of Bill the Pony. (2023-06-16)
  • You can't sacrifice a Food token to pay multiple costs. For example, you can't sacrifice a Food token to activate its own ability and also to activate the last ability of Bill the Pony. (2023-06-16)
  • Some spells and abilities that create Food tokens may require targets. If each target chosen is an illegal target as that spell or ability tries to resolve, it won't resolve. You won't create any Food tokens. (2023-06-16)
  • Do not eat the delicious cards. No, not even for second breakfast. (2023-06-16)
