ELWEN - effective versus White Tree, Return of the King, Gondor Decks plus can move to a Haven. Good for influencing and attacking.

I gave my vote to Baduila, because he finds his way to my minion hazards 95% of the time. It's just too easy to ruin opponents turn with him ;).

Second place is either for lobelia or my prescious. Very irritating guys indeed. Lobelia has so many different uses, pilfer against hobbits and bree-folk and attack from bree or tomboland.

Yeah, Baduila is great for roadblock strategy, and I would certainly be willing to put him in my deck due to his ability. My favorite, however, is The Grimburgoth, due to his merits when it comes to directly attack the opponent. I like brute strength, in this case.

Although Baduila is good, Lobelia has excellent homesites to Pilfer some characters away. That shoudl teach them to dismantle those annoying hobbit decks.

ps. I noticed that roughly all decks in the DUtch Nationals played Pilfer  :twisted:
Player of killer hazards no-one else ever dares to play :D

I don't think I've ever, ever played Pilfer (or an agent strategy whatsoever)  :oops:

My Precious.

Because an early draw can fool some hero one ring deck.

And because it's a good defense card against other when you're playing the one ring without gollum.

for me Gholodros is the best

totally destroys Mordor squatting minion decks thanks to his influencing special ability combined with Mordor home-sites

in To Get You Away hazard deck can really ruin the day for heroes if he manages to capture someone and take them home to Barad-dur...
and he lives close to Gondor so just in a few moves he can be at sites frequently visited in hero decks

Golodhros is my man too. Good vs. minion Mordor shuffle and excellent for pilfering that FW Troll Chief/Ulkaur squatting at Ettenmoors.

A nice use for the :D: and :S: agents like My Precious, Baduila, and Grimby is to surprise an opponent by having 2-3 Inner Cunning in your deck.  That way, if they go to one of the agents' homesites, you'll be almost certain to have him waiting.  Alternately, you can use the permanent event ability of IC to make them show up almost anywhere.  This is particularly nice with Baduila....
