Treebeard, Earthborn (4R103) Wiki

General Strategy

Earthborn is one of the two ally versions of Treebeard, along with Oldest Living Thing. They are also the only Gandalf allies with the Unhasty keyword, giving them unique synergy with Stump and Bramble. Both versions of Treebeard are effective skirmishers at their home sites, although drawing Treebeard prior to site 2 is unlikely, and Valley of Saruman could potentially discard him. Treebeard can be played using Fangorn Forest.

Earthborn specialises in catching unbound hobbits (Merry and Pippin) when they are about to be discarded. This works best with Learned Guide and Woolly-Footed Rascal, although all The Two Towers versions of Merry and Pippin have a discard ability. Earthborn allows Merry and Pippin to discard multiple times without needing extra copies of them to get them back. Other cards that help with this are Greyhame and Knocked on the Head. Earthborn is most easily healed by extra copies of himself, though some cards such as Mithlond can also be used to heal him.

Earthborn can also be combined with Warmed Up A Bit to rescue Hobbits and replay them. This can be especially useful with Hobbits such as Pippin, Hobbit of Some Intelligence, as he can remove a burden or heal everytime he is played. Other effects that discard Hobbits, such as Diversion, also work with Treebeard.

Rules and Clarifications

From the Comprehensive Rules 4.0 on Unhasty:
The Free Peoples player cannot assign a character with this keyword to a skirmish unless it is at its home site (see ally) or when a Gandalf card allows it do so.
