    Wulven Scout may or may not appear in competitive decks, but i'm kinda curious to see if he'll be literally used to scout people's strategies a little more in-depth. Say vs high-ranks in qm. Or in a swiss tourney when you've already qualified anyway. Or to make plans on how to beat a very tough single player mission (which doesn't exist yet). Or whatever players can come up with.

    However much one kind of longs to see the actors in war outdo each other in cunning activity, finesse, and stratagem, still one has to admit that these qualities show themselves but little in history and have rarely been able to emerge from amongst the mass of relations and circumstances.
    The reason for this is obvious enough: Strategy knows no other activity than the arrangement of combats with the measures which relate to it. It doesn't know, like ordinary life, actions that consist of mere words, i.e. expressions, declarations, etc. But these, which are inexpensive, are what the crafty one prefers to deceive with.
    This sober truth is always felt through and through by the actor in war and therefore he ceases to fancy a game of shrewd agility. Necessity presses so hard into immediate action that there is no room left for it. In a word, the pieces on the strategical chessboard lack the mobility that is the element of stratagem and cunning. - CvC, On War

    I think Wlven scout will be used to check if a player sneaked in additional cards. for example, some players add 5 BF instead of 4. They try to be sneaky but luckily there is Wulven scout to prevent all these.

But I think there are better options for 3cc allies available to Shadow.
    They cost the same if i'm not mistaken. There was no need to use Tracking Gear with such a small card pool and deck being played pretty much the same way all the time. With more cards and different strategy/archetype getting that information could be usefull. How much is unkown for now.
