Farmer Maggot, Chaser of Rascals (1R288) Wiki

General Strategy

An important member of the “Hobbit Hospital” strategy, Farmer Maggot, Chaser of Rascals can heal Merry or Pippin at the cost of an exertion in the Fellowship phase. While Hobbits have access to several healing options with Pipes and Pipeweeds, events such as Hobbit Appetite or Stout and Sturdy, and conditional healing such as The Shire Countryside, allies such as Farmer Maggot, Chaser of Rascals, Rosie Cotton, Hobbiton Lass, and The Gaffer, Sam's Father are popular for the ability to heal from the support area. The self-healing Hobbit Party Guest and Frodo, Old Bilbo's Heir can effectively “transfer” wounds from Shire companions to allies.

Farmer Maggot, Chaser of Rascals is particularly important in a deck that focuses on the exertion abilities of Hobbits, such as Merry, Friend to Sam or an unbound Hobbit bearing a copy of Escape. Additionally, Farmer Maggot, Chaser of Rascals returned to the spotlight with the release of The Return of the King base set, with the popular Merry's Sword appearing in many Rohan decks (and the less popular Pippin's Sword in Gondor decks). The Reflections expansion added Merry's Dagger and Pippin's Dagger as well as a support area condition, Everyone Knows, which focuses on having healed Hobbits.
