Bard 
is one of the class options for the archetype Healer. This class was first introduced in the Shadow of Nerekhall expansion.
Song tokens

song tokens

'The Bard uses his melody and harmony tokens to trigger a vast array of beneficial effects. Almost all of the Bard’s Class cards have two effects – one taking effect if the melody token is placed on the card, and the other if the harmony token is placed on the card. By changing his song, the Bard can trigger new abilities in the heat of battle, making sure that the heroes always have the inspiration they need to triumph over the overlord.

This class focuses on the use of harmony and melody song tokens to choose from a variety of effects. The Bard's starting equipment its the Traveler's Blade, the Lute, and the skill Song of Mending.
