The Nine Walkers (1R79) Wiki

General Strategy

A rare condition with generally fringe benefits, The Nine Walkers provides twilight choking when playing a race not spotted. The Nine Walkers can be particularly helpful absorbing the twilight cost of a splashed Ent, as they tend to be expensive, or when replacing a dead character's race with another character of that race. It works well in multi-race fellowships (For example, start Gandalf, have Gimli, Aragorn and Legolas in deck). From Movie Block onwards, it is possible to design a whole deck around this card, as there are 8 Free Peoples races to play one companion each from (Hobbit, Wizard, Man, Elf, Dwarf, Ent, Wraith, Tree).

The Nine Walkers has synergy with Gandalf, the Grey Wizard and Gandalf's Wisdom in a choke deck.

The Nine Walkers effect stacks for each copy in play; however, most players would agree that even including one copy of The Nine Walkers sacrifices a valuable deck slot and limits the ability to cycle in most decks, and more than 1 are needed to guarantee an early draw.
