Even with his errata Boromir still stands well in his spot. The steadfast hero goes great with a Gondorian Shield and has access to a multitude of great weapons and armour to make this Captain of Gondor a cut above the rest.

The designers have done a fantastic job of capturing the theme of this character standing fast in his Fellowship form. Great card.

Merry is, in my opinion an under rated card. He keeps your Hobbits within Secrecy and pairs up with his best friends Sam Gamgee and Pippin incredibly well. He also gives you access to spirit within Hobbits which when taking a look at the other options, is something in itself. My favourite use for Merry is giving him a Hobbit Pony, with his trusty steed you can keep him upright within the questing and staging step and wait for enemies to appear to trigger him, if no immediate threats are worth exhausting him, you can commit to the quest at the end of the Staging step with his pony!

Merry also gives you access to the infamous Hobbit Pipe deck, should you choose to pursue that deckbuild. A solid card and a worthy look at in any Hobbit archetype and a fair low threat Hero, who can keep you there, outside of the trait.

This card saves lives. Generally your Heroes. Dale lacks hitpoint early on and this allows your allies to take the hit instead. Can be game changing in the right circumstance combined with Redwater Sentry for a clutch sentinel save.

But this card also can be used outside of Dale. What I like most about it, is it's versatility for defence and offence.

I wish I could fit more in my deck. Great card.

This is essentially what mirrors We Are Not Idle for Dwarves without the card draw and exhaust cost. It can be absolutely nuts mid to late game. Or just enough to help you grab an early King of Dale. Not to be underestimated.
