Bow of the Galadhrim (1R33) Wiki

General Strategy

Bow of the Galadhrim is very effective against minions with only one vitality (Such as Bill Ferny, SSF), or minions found in moria swarm decks, since a victory by Legolas allows him to kill a minion before that minion's skirmish has resolved. It is also effective against minions that tend to exert (Like those in Sauron wounding decks) since he can either wound prior to exertion (In order to prevent it) or wait until the exertion has occurred, and then kill the minion. Unlike Gimli's Battle Axe, Bow of the Galadhrim will wound any minion, making it very versatile. However, its strength bonus is fairly weak, so it will need to be supported by other strength boosters for Legolas, such as Long-Knives of Legolas, Asfaloth, elven events, or by using Prince of Mirkwood.

Bow of the Galadhrim is one of the only 3 cards in Fellowship Block that can wound Saruman before or during skirmishes (to hinder or remove his devastating influence). The others are Hobbit Sword-play and Betrayal of Isengard*. Alternatively, A Ranger's Versatility could be used to exhaust Saruman (Or any other minion), who could then be finished off with Bow of the Galadhrim.
