Frodo, Son of Drogo (1C290) Wiki

General Strategy

In Fellowship Block, the ability of this Frodo is useful against only a few shadow decks. It's generally quite situational, as many decks prefer to wound other companions and to simply overwhelm Frodo. The fact that it requires the Frodo signet can also restrict what companions the Free Peoples player may use. It is however quite effective against The Witch King, Lord of the Nazgul and Isengard Warrior.

Son of Drogo's ability has some wound shuffling utility, which can be relevant for pipe decks using Aragorn's Pipe or Frodo's Pipe. Pipeweed cards can be used more efficiently by spreading out wounds or concentrating them on a single character as needed.

With the release of The Two Towers base set, Son of Drogo gains new utility with the unbound hobbits Merry, Learned Guide and Pippin, Woolly-Footed Rascal. Since these companions tend to be discarded during the skirmish phase, wounds that they possess are somewhat inconsequential, as the hobbits can be replayed with full vitality at subsequent sites. This also synergises with the ability of Learned Guide, who needs to exert Frodo to be discarded.

In The Return of the King, Sam, Resolute Halfling also makes an appearance. This version of Sam has an extremely cheap method of healing himself, and can heal Frodo too when combined with Son of Drogo. Son of Drogo's ability can also prove useful against the new Morgul Orcs, many of whom pressure the Ring-bearer and monopolise on their wounds and burdens.
