A rare condition with generally fringe benefits, The Nine Walkers provides twilight choking when playing a race not spotted. The Nine Walkers can be particularly helpful absorbing the twilight cost of a splashed Ent, as they tend to be expensive, or when replacing a dead character's race with another character of that race. It works well in multi-race fellowships (For example, start Gandalf, have Gimli, Aragorn and Legolas in deck). From Movie Block onwards, it is possible to design a whole deck around this card, as there are 8 Free Peoples races to play one companion each from (Hobbit, Wizard, Man, Elf, Dwarf, Ent, Wraith, Tree).
The Nine Walkers effect stacks for each copy in play; however, most players would agree that even including one copy of The Nine Walkers sacrifices a valuable deck slot and limits the ability to cycle in most decks, and more than 1 are needed to guarantee an early draw.
