Ottar, Man of Laketown (1R80) Wiki

General Strategy

One of the predominant card drawing and cycling tools of the Fellowship of the Ring block, Ottar, Man of Laketown helps the Free Peoples player build a hand better than almost any other card in the format.

The strength of Ottar lies in his ability to build a perfect hand. If the Free Peoples player faces a twilight-choking opponent, he or she may want to discard superfluous Shadow cards. If the Free Peoples player draws multiple copies of a unique character or condition, Ottar can discard them. With the ability to choose up to three cards, Ottar provides a lot of flexibility.

Ottar, Man of Laketown is an invaluable tool and not often used as a fighter in Horn of Boromir decks. Similar decks, with multiple copies of the Horn or Elrond, may rely on Ottar's cycling ability to heavily.

The Isengard culture was gifted a similar card in the form of Shadow event Abandoning Reason for Madness in the Realms of the Elf Lords expansion.

The universal benefit of Ottar, Man of Laketown was short-lived, as the ally was added to the X-List with the introduction of the Two Towers base set. Eventually he was re-introduced for Expanded format, although only on the R-List.
