[The Idea]
Have a strong fighting group with the Elf.
Jump from one Dragon Hoard to another and get as much MP as possible. First step is to "Withered Heat" with "Cram".
Some Hazard MPs are possible with "Glorfindel" and "Legolas".
Get the Faction there and the Allys with "Here, there, or yonder".
"Radagast" or "Pallando" helps to geht the Cards.
Most end with 23-25 MP in round 4.

Most time I play against a Hobbit/Corruption Deck. 2:3 for the Hobbits.
Last month we recruit a good friend of us to start with ME, his first Deck is a Dwarf Deck. 1:0 for the Dwarfes beacause "Call of Home" and "Muster Disperses".
Seeking some Ideas for me to improve my Deck...

I've always liked Gates in a hero deck.  It works very nicely with dark quarrels to reduce # of strikes to half the original # of strikes.  Plus, a dark quarrels can let you snag an item on your way to dragon country first turn.

2 forewarned is enough.  I don't know if muster is all that necessary as dwarves are the only faction that may be difficult to bring in and the wizard or A Friend or 3 could do the job.  Risky blow is much better than block, imho.  

my suggestions for what they are worth  :wink:

-2 muster/+2 gates
-1 forewarned/+1 marvels told
-1 block, -1 haburgeon/+2 risky blow
-1 and forth he hastened/+1 longbottom leaf (or smoke rings) to bring in wizard cards?
-1 not at home/+1 dark quarrels

On the haz side, i dont know if the one Summons and one Foolish words will be effective.  I'd choose one or the other and put two of them in.  The muster disperses are better sideboarded in later in the game (after opponent has actually marshalled factions) so I'd replace them with Unexpected Outposts to provide better card flow and hazard flexibility (such as bringing in lost in Free Domains to cover Gondor). Two searching eyes seems really skewed towards your home turf game environment.  One is enough?  Replace with Adunaphel?  The hobbits will have multiple concealments, stealths, halfling stealth (which searching eye doesn't stop) and Fatty so even then, searching eye may not do the trick especially with the low haz limit of hobbits.  

As always, these are just suggestions.  :)
