I'm building a Hobbit deck and I need advice on a method to get more resources to Lore Pippin. I never seem to have enough to pay for what I want with him. Sam gets Steward of Gondor so I can bring out heavy hitters early. I could use Horn of Gondor on Pippin but the scenario I'm playing (Flight to the Ford) has minimal combat so not many allies are being destroyed.
Does anyone know of a good resource generation or transfer card I can use?

Errand-Rider, or slap a Song of Wisdom on Sam?

You could use parting gifts to move resources from Sam (who you said has Steward of Gondor) to Pippin.

Maybe also Resourceful - it's a neutral card so Sam can help pay for it

Thanks everyone.
I've definitely got my eye on Resourceful once I reach Khazad Dum, but since I was going to get Conflict at the Carrock next, Song of Wisdom might be a perfect fit.

A Good Harvest is also a super versatile option.

Elf-stone is in-sphere and helps cheat allies into play

If you put Steward of Gondor on Pippin instead of Sam, he can pay for Rivendell Minstrel (Hunt for Gollum), who will fetch a Song of Kings (Hunt for Gollum) for Pippin to chip in on Leadership events. You only need one copy of the Song since the Minstrel will find it, and since the Minstrel is non-unique and provides 2 willpower, he can be a handy enough ally to justify 3x in your deck.
