More hobbit cards you say!

Well, this deck is insane.

Here is a link to a video of an earlier version of the deck in action: https://youtu.be/vZUCpGoV3Eg

It is completely bonkers. (MotK) Bilbo Baggins finds you a pipe to start the game with. I would suggest a Spare Pipe. Spare Pipe could find you Timely Aid. Timely Aid could find you Gandalf. And from here on out you just keep adding allies to your Pipe Army and dominate quests.

Your starting threat is 19, but with The Shirefolk and Smoke Rings (which can be recylced with Dwarven Tomb) your threat is never an issue, even with keeping Gandalf around.

It is very easy to have 4-5 pipes in play. Making Smoke and Think an absolutely crazy good card (another great target for Dwarven Tomb).

Gandalf can hold onto all his toys, with a Wild Stallion he is a beast.

The stallion on Jubayr with Arwen Undómiel's boost is also nuts.

This deck can explode out of the gates with high cost allies hitting the table. It is a really fun deck to play. And I love that it starts with the Hobbits of Bag End.

Enjoy!

Really cool deck. I took it against Celebrimbor's Secret, Journey down the Anduin Nightmare and Conflick at the Carrock Nightmare and beat them (on the second try for the three quests). A question I asked myself, why Free to Choose and not a third Smoke Rings ?

@Celiathe honest answer is: I wanted to use a card a don't use much. It was free so I thought i'd give it a try. I figured if Doom hit you, then you could draw a card from Hobbit Pipes. But you are right, Smoke Rings is the safer bet. thanks for playing the deck!

@MekANerDthat is not a Hobbit friendly quest for sure!

I have a blast with this deck. The performance is great ! I only swapped Free to Choose for another Smoke Rings and To Arms! for another Resourceful. I won against The Fords of Isen, The River Running, Danger in Dorwinion, The Weather Hills, The Dead Marshes Nightmare and Voyage Across Belegaer Nightmare.
