What is the worst Gandalf?  Faramir?  Eomer?  Pippin?  etc.

Like Aragorn, Guide and Protector is probably the worst Aragorn in my opinion.  If he didn't have to be skirmishing a minion he would be awesome.

I could think of a deck with Imrahil and fortifications which would make this Aragorn viable to play. Not the best aragorn, maybe I dislike Swift Hunter more.

 Guide and Protector is good in an Anorian deck. I strongly dislike Pippin, Mr. Took.

I would have to say Sam, Faithful Companion.
If movie character includes shadow too, I nomminate Gollum, Nasty Treacherous Creature.

I think Guide and Protector is awesome and clearly doesn't compare to the carp that is Aragorn, Heir of Elendil! Sick Umm... Aragorn, Ranger of the North? Roll Eyes

RotN should be automatically disqualified, on account of having been used in so many high-level tournament decks (and not for the lack of any Aragorn). Although he might be past his prime, now that cultures have closed ranks and Thorongil is running around, but still... taking on four minions at once is nothing to sneeze at. Wink

Aragorn, Swift Hunter
Arwen, Evenstar of Her People
Boromir - N/A
Denethor, Steward of the City
Eomer, Sister-son of Theoden
Eowyn, Lady of the Mark
Frodo, Wicked Masster!
Faramir, Stout Captain
Gandalf, The Grey Wizard
Gimli, Faithful Companion
Legolas, Companion of the Ring
Merry, Noble Warrior
Pippin, Guard of Minas Tirith
Sam, Faithful Companion
Theoden, Son of Thengel

No, we were all saying how amazing he was and how he rendered most other Aragorn's useless!

Aragorn, Swift Hunter Definitely agree with you here.  
Arwen, Evenstar of Her People I have to agree here too.
Boromir - N/A Maybe Boromir LoG?
Denethor, Steward of the City No way man! SotC is a cheap tank if used correctly. See Denethor's Sword.
Eomer, Sister-son of Theoden Compared to the newer strategies yeah, but back in its day Rohan allies could kick some butt.
Eowyn, Lady of the Mark Dittos here. Completely worthless, way to specific.
Frodo, Wicked Masster! Possibly the most worst card ever. Four freaking burdens for one wound and way, way to specific. And then the fact that its a rare...  Roll Eyes
Faramir, Stout Captain Yeah, not a real crappy card, just not good specific enough. Bad combination.
Gandalf, The Grey Wizard He's actually not to bad in a choke, and remember, this is fellowship block.
Gimli, Faithful Companion Meh. Completely overshadowed by the other versions  of Gimli.  Neutral
Legolas, Companion of the Ring Meh again. Fighting Legolas is a questionable strategy at best. Sick
Merry, Noble Warrior Dude! Possibly the best Merry ever! 5/4 and an absolute a@@-kicker in the right Rohan deck!  Tongue
Pippin, Guard of Minas Tirith Perhaps not the best Pippin ever, I prefer WoBaS, but still good in the right deck.
Sam, Faithful Companion Yeah, completely worthless in movie block since the movie block Bill got X-ed and mediocre in expanded.
Theoden, Son of Thengel Yeah, no arguements there.

That Boromir R.O.C.K.S !! Back in FOTR he was called immortal! He could fight the Balrog Alone with armor and his blade!! How can that be the worst movie character?

QFT. Not only that, he has Aragorn signet and he's a ranger. That was awesome back in Fellowship block. Ranger's Versatility before the errata was amazing.

Pippin, Just a Nuisance
Merry, Unquenchable Hobbit
Legolas, Companion of the Ring - I can't stand that Legolas
Theoden, Son of Thengel - Garbage

Not to defend every card, but:
Aragorn, Swift Hunter- I'm not really familiar with.  Seems he might be alright.  3 vitality and can work on himself.  I used to use Heir of Elendil because he was auto Defender +1 and Swordarm of the White Tower
Merry, Noble Warrior- I use this merry in my Rohan deck, but don't start him.  I use him for his sword, but with his 5 strength and sword along with an Honorable Charge isn't too bad. 
Gandalf, The Grey Wizard- May be the worst Gandalf, but I have done okay with him choking and using Trust Me As You Once Did.

I don't really get Guide and Protector.  I know there is potential there with a wounding deck and probably a lot with Shadowplay, Unheeded, and NFFATROD, but I can't stand that he has to be skirmishing the minion.  If he only had to be assigned to a skrimish he would be waaaaaaay better.
