This deck is very similar to the Sora Bulq deck for Star Wars, but even more powerful, and in a set that is relatively less powerful. So, he’s really, really tough, probably too tough. I love the deck, though.

Balin & Dwalin
4 HP each
Minor Blue Deck
4x RELENTLESS BLADE
A4. After attacking, Thorin may attack the defending character again with a basic attack card without using an action, even when following an OAK SHIELD or if this is your second action.
1x PIERCING BLADE
A5*. If this attack is no blocked, attack value is 9.
2x OAK SHIELD
D3. If the attacking character is adjacent, Thorin may play an attack card on the attacking character without using an action.
3x DWARVEN KING
Move Thorin and all allied Dwarves up to 4 spaces. Draw a card.
Draw 3 cards.
Notes: In January 2020, I reduced Balin & Dwalin from 5 HP each to 4 HP each and it’s an important change. In LOTRED for strong minors, only mounted warriors get a 5th HP, otherwise they get 4 HP. I was thinking that Balin & Dwalin and Kili & Fili from the Bilbo deck had enough screen time to warrant 5 HP each, but they’re not personality minors; they don’t have their own cards and have to follow the LOTR rules. It better balances out the Thorin and Bilbo decks anyways.
