This is a multiplayer combat deck built around a Hobbit combat theme, and the Dunedain watching their borders. It It is a modification to my Battle of Bywater deck. This version replaces Merry with Halbarad in order to shore up a weakness of that deck, which was having trouble engaging as many enemies as you intend to, due to having very low threat.
Tom defends and allows you to play off-sphere Hobbits. He wants Ring Mail and in previous versions of this deck I gave him 2 copies, but this time you have the option of giving him 1 Ring Mail and 1 Staff of Lebethron instead. Rosie can bring his defense up.
Compared to the version of this deck with Merry, this deck might have a harder time mustering attack strength reliably... but maybe not. To tell the truth, I haven’t had the opportunity to test this one in a bigger multiplayer environment like I usually do. I would give Pippin daggers and give swords to Halbarad, as well as attacking with Hobbits who are benefiting from Tom’s ability.
I haven’t included threat reduction here, but you can do that by subbing in Sneak Attack + Gandalf or Secret Vigil, both of which work very well thematically here.
