Loop

From LOTR-TCG Wiki

Loop is an informal game term. It refers to at least two cards whose abilities enable each other, allowing for two or more actions to occur infinitely. A classic loop, from the Fruit Loops deck, is Steadfast Champion (7U49)LOTR-EN07S049.0 card.jpg and Treebeard, Keeper of the Watchwood (10R18)LOTR-EN10S018.0 card.jpg with Gandalf in play. You play Steadfast Champion (7U49)LOTR-EN07S049.0 card.jpg, discard it to heal Treebeard, exert him twice to play it again, going back to step one with a minion and shadow condition discarded.
