Heck, I use Stone Trolls in a [Shire] deck devoted to tales. At least it still gives Pippin some strength, and [Uruk] Hunters and Troll Swarm are pretty viable decktypes, and ones that hobbits could definitely have trouble with.
Happy Hunting!

Regenerating an old thread, but I'd go for Valleys of the Mark. I guess it can work against Shelob, but she's enduring...

Yh Valleys is terrible. By the time it's set up properly, most shadows are done roaming. There's always Eater of Light I suppose :)

I know he's from a block of rares, but I might nominate Gildor Inglorion. That game text is weak, self-defeating and controlled by the shadow player. His stats are also horrible. Considering all the mighty Elf-lords wandering around, he really drew the short straw.

Can you guys think of a justification for Seeking New Foes? It seems like it would almost always be detrimental. I guess if you have skirmish pumps in hand and your opponent plays a bunch of low-mid tier minions... That and VotM seem worse to me than Weight of a Legacy, which actually seems almost playable in fellowship.

Mordor Enraged, anyone?

Yeah, If I had 4 copies of Seeking New Foes in a deck I would never play one of them. You add 2 twilight and let the Shadow Player resolve skirmishes before ever seeing what he might play. The +1 you shouldn't ever get to use anyway, and I can't think of a good use for [Rohan] tokens for just one site. Solely detrimental.

Pretty much. You're meant to assign the minions such that the difference in strength between all characters is minimal, then have a pump push you over the edge. But it's really weak. Even reinforcing doesn't help it much.

Mordor Enraged, anyone?
I hate those kinds of self-defeating cards. The more archers they have, the fewer wounds I want! Only use of that card I know is to play it on Sauron.

I was reminded of Despair recently too. The number is so steep: 3 dead guys is one less burden on Frodo? Not to mention you have to hold it in hand.

I don't understand the design behind cards like that. I just see them as being fun. Maybe that's just me though.

Would Despair work better as a condition?

Maybe, or if it could spot Allies as well. But even then 12 is a pretty huge number. Put Forth His Strength seems more reasonable, but it's still never played.

Loathsome
I opened so many of those cards that I actually hung one in effigy from my appartment and everday I'd come home and see it fluttering in the wind.  Living in a desert meant it suffered no rain damage, but it was pretty loathsome when I finally took it down.

Safe Paths is straight suicide. There are cards that don't do a thing. This one kills you.

I think I'd still take it over Stern People as it's only 3 cards and you at least get to wound minions and don't lose your hand.

On the subject of Rohan in King Block, has anyone ever played Death They Cried?

Stern people plus change of plans? Maybe there is something there, probably not :P On that note, I don't think I've ever seen CoP played.
