Frodo, Little Master is a slightly-modified reprint of Frodo, Courteous Halfling (4R301) , and a fairly generic version of Frodo overall. In formats where Courteous Halfling is disallowed (i.e. Standard), he's a moderately-unreliable defense against Shadow discard and mill decks. However, because he can't defend against discard or mill in your opponent's Free Peoples deck, and his game text is so easily shut off simply by generating a few threats, he's rarely played. An exception to this rule would be if your fellowship is less than four companions, therefore preventing you from having four threats. With this in mind, he works well with Aragorn, Well-traveled Guide (19P12) .

Frodo, Courteous Halfling (4R301) is generally stronger, chiefly because Courteous Halfling's game text is much harder to deactivate. The rest of the differences between the two cards are negligible. Relatively few cards target Courteous Halfling's Frodo signet, but those cards that exist are stronger and more popular than cards that target Little Master's Fellowship keyword. Of the latter, Rabbit Stew (19P31) is the most useful.
