Hero of the Month Deck: The Three Questers

Gimli is ready to take on the quest, and maybe a few axe swings as well! Along for the journey is his old pal, Legolas, and an unlikely third Hero in Sam Gamgee. Is this an alternative fan-fiction of “The Three Hunters” or something else. I’d like to know myself. Read on for this month’s Hero of the Month Deck, “The Three Questers”
