Hobbit Hospital

I've been taking another trip down memory lane, to the Fellowship Block, where a deck existed that was quite powerful, but never got much attention. Called 'Hobbit Hospital', the deck used the following cards to essentially ensure that your Fellowship of Frodo, Sam, Merry and Pippin were fully healed every turn:

Coupled with the Merry that was able to bump his fellow Hobbits' strength

and a few Hobbit Swords and Skirmish events, the four Hobbits became quite powerful with their ability to free themselves of all wounds each turn. Despite it's power, the deck was probably not as strong as the Beastagorn decks of the day, which is probably what lead to its being over-looked, but if you ever feel like representing the Shire, don't forget about the healing powers of the Hobbits!

  1. I had a friend that ran that deck up into RotK. Best new cards for it?

    So Fair, So Desparate

    Chance Observation

    With those, he once had Pippin. PIPPIN (the weak, red shirt) overwhelm the witch-king in a fight just for the lulz.

    Reminds of days when I set up an "attack of the Elf clones" deck which overwhelmed minions by making them strength 0.

    Man, that's one thing I loved about that game. It was less about the games, and more about the moments that occurred within it. (much like the story, perhaps?)
