Thrarin, Dwarven Smith (1U27) Wiki

General Strategy

Thrarin, like Dwarf Guard, is often used as cannon fodder. He has several advantages over Dwarf Guard however. He doesn't have to spot a dwarf in order to play, and he doesn't take up a slot in the Fellowship, which means less twilight generated and less trouble from cards like Savagery to Match Their Numbers and Ulaire Enquea, LoM. Because of this, there's no pressure to get him killed as soon as possible, you can simply wait until the opponent swarms or drops a fully-geared balrog before using his ability. An alternate strategy you can do is load him up with gear and multiple copies of Endurance of Dwarves, then use Elrond (HtGG or LoR) to heal him, which would basically allow him to serve as a proxy companion. This strategy is also beneficial because allies are immune to effects of cards like Desperate Defense of the Ring and Morgul Blade.

Used as cannon fodder, his potential can be greatly increased by using Disquiet of Our People (which requires either Endurance of Dwarves to give him more vitality, or Shoulder to Shoulder and an Elf to heal the required exertion).
