Haldir, Elf of the Golden Wood (1U48) Wiki

General Strategy

This Haldir is difficult to get a lot of use out of in Fellowship block due to the lack of Elven possessions. He is decent at sites 6, 7 and 8 and can bear an Elven Bow (Or Elven Cloak), but aside from that he mostly only serves as fodder. You could play Asfaloth on him if you weren't using it on Arwen or Legolas. He's also worth playing in a Far Seeing Eyes deck, and is beefier than Lorien Elf, who is the classic Elven cannon fodder in Fellowship Block. He can benefit from Elven pumps such as Defiance, so he could be used in an all elves deck.

If you don't have many cards or are playing in a Sealed or otherwise limited card pool, this card can be a decent companion. However in an all cards format he is very rarely used, as most other Fellowship companions have better stats (Even Farin and Fror can use Dwarven equipment). In The Two Towers, a more powerful version of Haldir is released, along with generic gear for elves.
