If you pair him with the new tactics Eowyn, what would you consider your "starting threat" to be, since lower your threat before you actually start the game? i.e. You have a deck of Loragorn, Merry, and Eowyn. Would it be 27 or 24?

It doesn't. The horn has an errata, the card has to be destroyed, not discarded.

Correct, but Pippin pushes them back into the staging area.

DoT is a little expensive. With only two HP's I'd prefer him to cost 3, but then he'd be insanely good. But, his ability is really good, especially in creature swarm scenarios. Direct Damage is so hard to come by in the early card cycles, that you have to consider 2 of these in almost heavy Tactics deck using just Mirkwood and Khazad-Dum.

Lore by itself is tight on resources, so I like him in a two-faction deck with Bifur and Theodred where you can launder purple resources into green.

I'm a huge fan of cards that are discard without exhausting. You get to use their abilities and use him in the same turn. Great synergy with the Horn of Gondor.

I forgot about those enemies saying "they were considered to be engaged" I doubt those will work.

I think "cannot engage" does not stop enemies that are considered engaged with you - they are not currently gaining the status, they already have the status.

The last quest in the Grey Havens has it to where a boss type enemy engages the first player (an another engages the last player). Pippin could be used when engaged with either of those. I'm less certain about using him against enemies that stay in the staging area and are just "considered" to be engaged with you (or all players).

I wonder if he works in scenarios where an enemy always engages the first player. Pippin says cannot, so he could trump the statement on the enemy. This would be an interesting interaction.

Also to compare it to another similar card "Leaf-wrapped Lembas" which states:
"Action: Add Leaf-wrapped Lembas to the victory display and remove it from the campaign pool, to ready all heroes in play."
There are a few boon-cards with the above wording. Also note that at the start of the campaign you get to choose between Mr. Underhill and Gildor Ingolorion. Gildor clearly does not leave the campaign pool between scenarios and if Mr. Underhill would be removed then the choice of which boon to bring along would be ridiculously easy.

I have no firm ground to speak from (no rule to refer to) but from my understanding and the basic principle that "if it is not written in the rulebook it is not restricted" I would conclude this:
When you add a card to the Victory display in a normal scenario, it does not change its' owner, it just stays in a specific area for that scenario. When the scenario ends the card is "free" to return to where it originated from - the player's deck. In other words, the Victory display is only a restriction area similar to "remove from the game" effects of other LCGs or the exile mechanic of MtG. When a game ends, those cards are "freed" from there. As the rule inserts of the campaign says nothing on the victory display and only about boons and burdens manipulation, I would assume that there are no additional restrictions - treat a single scenario as usual, only observe hero restrictions of Campaign play.

A second sneak attack. Thats 3 times gandalf per copy.

Thx, interesting thread. And it's ok for boon cards. But it says nothing about normal cards (not Boon) with victory points (like the card "Black Arrow). The question is: playing in a Campaign mode, if I use it in a scenario (for example to kill a Nazgul) and put it in the victory display, may I shuffle it again in my deck in the next scenario? In other words, how many times may I use a card with victory points in the Campaign mode, scenario after scenario?
Again, thx in advance for any reply

Has anyone considered or made a themed deck with this guy, Spirit Merry and Pippin yet? Would love to see that in action!

He is great! I use him in a dúnedain deck, with the forest trap, or weak enemies he easily have 4 defense. Hhis hit points help to block big enemies.

Eh--I actually really like the art. It's stylized, absolutely, but it works for me.

I just wish the "lord of horses" wouldn't look like a young girls dream of a pony...
