Sam, Faithful Companion (1R310) Wiki

General Strategy

Hearkening a card that would not be released until the Mines of Moria expansion (although a promotional copy was also available), Sam, Faithful Companion can tutor the site twilight number reducing Bill the Pony from the draw deck. With two copies of Bill the Pony in the draw deck, the Free Peoples player could usually ensure having one available for sites 2-4 and sites 7-9 (As long as they are not both drawn very early). With Bill the Pony X-listed in Movie Block, Sam, Faithful Companion only offers a boon in Fellowship Block, Towers Standard and Expanded formats.

The Frodo signet allows access to Frodo's Pipe, Dear Friends recycling, and skirmish wounding of Mind Your Own Affairs and No Use That Way, though in later blocks Sam, Frodo's Gardener and Sam, Resolute Halfling offer significantly more while also possessing the Frodo signet. Like all Pre-shadows versions of Sam, this character is Ring-Bound and can take the Ring from Frodo upon the latter's death.
