Farmer Maggot is ok, I guess, for Hobbit decks. They are the only decks with threat low enough to make his ability ok, and he is a little overpriced. 3 isn't very cheap. I still include him, for hopes of Steward of Gondor and some songs being able to buy him. His MotK hero I do not think anyone should use, except for joke decks.

He is the original Pennywise, being called "Penny-wise" by Tom Bombadil in "The Adventures of Tom Bombadil"

Farmer Maggot has excellent synergy with Tom Cotton. You will most likely want to play Farmer Maggot when you have an engaged opponent. This means that Tom Cotton allows him to be played without a resource match. As a further bonus for Tom, the attack of Farmer Maggot will be increased as well. — Nystrum 40

I really don't like him. When playing with hobbits, the last thing I want is to keep engaged enemies, because of our very low defense. And if you are not using a hobbits deck, there are loooots of cards better by 3 tactical resources.

He is a good target for Raise the Shire though, especially if you have Tom Cotton as an hero. — Alonewolf87 2224
