A Pippin tank! What is the world coming to?
He harkens back to Pippin, Friend to Frodo in that he works well with tales, but he does it in a whole different way. It’s actually nice see a fighting Pippin, and in the right deck, he can get pretty strong. A 5.

I think that he would be good in expanded format. He could be a good fighter. 4

This is probably my favorite companion in the whole set.

I’ve been wanting a fighting pippin and he isn’t like the annoying junkier version of merry. Oh, and as noted earlier he works with any tales like dwarven thorin’s harp or whatever it’s called.

Even if you don’t want to put him in a whole tale deck, throw him in an Everyone Knows deck and there’s +4 strength.

And plus four if he’s totally healed.

Run Bilbo as the ring-bearer with consorting with wizards and maybe some stone trolls?

Neat card, but I think that, since it lacks a cap (which a card like this really needs), I can’t give it anything higher than a 3.

Check out Lasting Alliances, The Road Ahead, and Ages of Middle-earth, three of my five dream card sets that make up Wars of the Ring. Oh, and I have a trade list now!

Also, if you're into DCs or RPGs (or even if you're not!), check out Realms of Middle-earth, the sequel to CG's "DC Adventure", Realms of the North!

I give this Pippin a 5, since he promotes the Boromir-unbound Hobbits strategy.
I will give you a hint: The Faithful Stone is a tale Dancing

Awesome! He works well in a Everyone Knows deck, and he’s begging for an entire deck to be made that is based around tales. Let me try and make a decklist here...
