A potent and versatile [shire] condition, Little Golden Flower sees at least one copy in most Hobbit decks, as at least one of its trio of effects is likely to benefit the player during the game. Despite the card's uniqueness and heavy twilight cost, it is generally safe from condition discard, courtesy of Scouring of the Shire. The exception to this is Buckland homestead (Not a Shadow card, so Scouring of the Shire won't protect against it).

The first ability of Little Golden Flower is likely the most powerful. Since all important Hobbits tend to at least have a Hobbit Sword (Which is also protected by Scouring of the Shire), they will get a reliable +1 vitality, useful for exertion abilities (An example being Merry, Friend to Sam) and providing synergy with Everyone Knows. This effect also works on allies, so cards such as Bilbo Baggins, Retired Adventurer or Melilot Brandybuck can be used more times each turn. The card's synergy with hand weapons and vitality also help it to combo well with Hobbit Sword-Play.

The second and third abilities of the card are more marginal, although the extra strength from being unwounded also stacks with Everyone Knows, while the bonus resistance could aid a run to site 9, or synergise with other cards that use resistance (Sworn Companion, G for Grand).
