A Host Avails Little (1U251) Wiki

General Strategy

Essentially Hate for large Fellowships, A Host Avails Little is another example of a card that is powerful against larger Fellowships. Because it is an event, and because it is useless against Fellowships of 5 or fewer companions, it is not often used in decks, as The Number Must Be Few or Ulaire Enquea, Lieutenant of Morgul are generally more useful cards. Additionally, it needs 8 companions to output the same amount of wounds as Enquea can for 6, although it has some advantages over Enquea in not needing any exertions, making it immune to cards such as Slaked Thirsts or Merry's Sword.
