Worry could be good, but it sounds more cute than actually helpful. I don't see it forwarding the strategy by that much, though if put in, it will look cool, but if you break it down and analyze closely, you'll see that it's a win-more card, it's good when you're already ahead, as it won't slow down a Fellowship enough it they're in fine condition for you to catch up.

I've used Worry in my tracker deck for years.  This is how things tend to play out.  The ring bearer usually does not fight so the focus is on other companions.  As you start taking down companions, the ring bearer gets punished without skirmishing.  By the time the ring bearer starts to get into some skirmishes he/she can not take mush punishment making it easier to kill him/her off.

You are probably missing that the thing with Worry and trackers is that all trackers are fierce, therefore there are a lot more skirmishes, so Worry is twice as effective as it would be in a regular uruk-hai deck. Makes several choices harder for the free peoples player, because burdens and exertions are piling up... it gets even worse for alternate ring bearers that have low vitality and low resistance.

But there are no ARBs in TS (or am I forgetting someone?). It was the same thing as playing worry in Fellowship of the Ring Uruks, since we had STMTN and KOI, which translates roughly into the smae thing, and most decks recognized after a while that it was cute, but not necessary (and back then, the uruks would deal a world more of hurt being fierce, and a lot of them abused burdens as well).

This is the Tracker deck I am currently building (35 cards):

4x Ugluk, Servant of Saruman
2x Mauhur, Patrol Leader
3x Uruk Chaser
4x Uruk Plains Runner
4x Uruk Runner
4x Uruk Searcher
1x Grima, Wormtongue
4x Broad-bladed Sword
4x Weary
3x Veangeance
1x Greed
1x What Did You Discover?

The idea is mainly to wear down using Weary and fierce Trackers.  Greed is to deal with bloated Fellowships, and WDYD is mainly to help with cycling issues if I am falling behind.
