Gameplay Strategy[edit]

This version of Farin holds the same stats as his Fellowship of the Ring version, but has a different ability. His ability to gain muster cam be useful, but as it is conditional, cards like Stalwart Support (12U14) and Gimli's Battle Axe, Vicious Weapon (11R9) are generally more useful for muster purposes. Still, a cheap cannon-fodder Dwarf that can gain muster can be useful.
