This has the advantage of making any of your territories, escorted, which means they can be used to block...this means things like the generous traveler, or gnarled oak, which have good stats, can now become amazing defenders (considering the defense boost this also gives) a
There is also nothing wrong with the reduction in damage for when you do take a hit...at a single res to deploy this is good for any impermuim deck.
It looks tempting....a territory that provides 2 resources. Especially in the first few turns of the game. The downside is that it is unstable, so it is possible that your quick start turns into a disaster. Do you like to gamble and feel lucky, then pick this card. Otherwise leave it be......and that is what I will do.
