Staff of Lebethron

Quite good on Sam in a Hobbit deck. I've tried it in a more medium threat deck (starting at 28) and it wasn't useable often enough to feel worth including.

Not bad with Tom Cotton either — Quetzal513 93
Ally Halbarad pairs perfectly with this. — MrObsolete 55

This card is wonderful against high-threat bosses that engage through quest effects. The very best of those is Lonely Mountain -- Smaug has 50 threat, and his shadows can trigger re-attacks via keyword. But not if they're discarded first!
