AZ: Sam Gamgee - probably the best hobbit released so far, and he finds his way into lots of my decks
BA: Frodo Baggins - takes away all the stress of defending (also I love hobbits)
BB: Aragorn (Lo) - I never really understood the love for Legolas, also his ally version is such a game changer for tactics
BC: Beregond - one of the best defenders in the game, not much to say
BD: Elrond - this was a tough one, but spirit Merry keeps me from playing his tactics version, so Elrond gets the edge
BE: Gandalf - Boromir shall not pass!
BF: Aragorn (T) - another tough one, but Aragorn has more decisions, and is the more fun hero to play
BG: Theoden (S) - No way should an unreleased hero defeat Theoden, who singlehandedly breathed life into the Rohan trait- even if he does look like Santa
