Gloin, Son of Groin (15R6) is one of the most widely-used Dwarves in the Standard and Expanded formats. His basic ability to remove tokens is useful when playing with Dwarven token conditions, but his first ability is the main source of his popularity. The ability to place useless or untimely drawn cards on the bottom of the deck is potent and combos well with cards like Arwen, Echo of Luthien (10U5) and searching cards like Something Slimy (15U50) and Simbelmynë (4R289) . An uncommon use of this card is using Gloin to place shadow cards back in the deck, then drop a Lost to the Goblins (1R189) bomb.
