Nobody Tosses a Dwarf was originally a rare, and it is quite a valuable card. As a matter of fact, I run 4 copies of them plus 4 Ring of Guile to get them back in my deck. Its completely sweet.

The Weight of a Legacy is the most useless. Henchman's Dagger is OK when paired with a Mouth of Sauron on a Mount with that site that makes him strength +1 for each card borne. Here comes the strength 16 Mouth with a Poleaxe!

I always thought that seventh level was kind of ridiculous.
it has a nice combo with stewards legacy...

I'll echo The Weight of a Legacy. Clearly the Legacy was not that much of a weight. :P

Incidentally, is there some awesomely clever combo with Scintillating Bird? No matter how I look at it, it seems like a really flashy demonstration that you don't care what happens to your draw deck.

What? You gotta be kidding. Halfling Hunter isn't culturally enforced at all, so he fits awesome tossed into a Gates of the Dead City deck.

Hey, in expanded against Nazgul it could have a purpose.

TWoaL, however, really has none.

Twoal, men of harad and henchmans dagger are all truly truly awful that i cant decide which id rather set fire to. Probably all three.

Why does everyone think Henchman's Dagger is so terrible? Its not a good rare, but I think if they printed it as a C/U, that would have been great. Its another +2 strength for a Ferny on the RB at Fords of Isen, which is the best use for it. Seriously, in a dedicated Ferny deck, I ran it with a Mouth of Sauron nab and Saruman Recursion (along with the [Men] Mumak, War Trident and other possessions).

Men of Harad could be used in exactly the right deck, but its ability is small. Gimme Under Foot, please. But in TT, where Southron Swarm was teh pwnzer (actually, that was Dunland, but Southron Swarm was still popular), or even Movie Block where you can run Crashed Gate with Southron Swarm, not as bad as TWOAL.

MoH and TwoaL probably take the cake, but I never did like Stone Trolls, Hollowing of Isengard or Why Shouldn't I Keep It?

are you kidding? my hobbit deck thrived on this card...mostly because all of my brothers decks were either uruk-hai or trolls ;)
its meta specific maybe, but by no means is it bad.

Henchman's Dagger is meta specific to! DC Format!

[2] Flurry of Stabs [Men]
Event • Skirmish
Make a [Men] minion strength +2 (or +4 and damage +1 if that minion is bearing 2 hand weapons).
