The pattern would suggest that there will be a lore hero for Rohan.

 

I'm big on Rohan. I experiment a lot with different decks, thematic or otherwise, but I return to Rohan all the time.

Rohan just reminds me of the Spartans from the movie 300 - as the Spartans went much smaller army against the might of Mordor, knowing, that it can will be their last battle and nobody it will not survive, and  yet, Theoden, not turned  from Gondor and decided to support him in defense Minas Tirith leading your people even for certain death.

well tactics noldor allies are few, 

 

 

this is something always made me wonder. Elves were supposed to be very good fighters, and disciplined, yet they do not seem to have these abilities in game


Lord of all Noldor

A star in the night And a bearer of hope

He rides into his glorious battle alone Farewell to the valliant warlord

elves remind me of the great archers, so I think everyone Silvan Hero should have a  Ranged keywords  ;)

yes, the elves, particularly the noldor, were the best warriors of middle earth. i think the heroes show this such as glorfindel and the twins, but so far the designers have concentrated on their knowledge and wisdom in the form of stargazer, master of the forge and erestor.

i hope that noldor are expanded even more

Rohan all the way for me. Even more so when Morgul Vale is released and I get my hands on Theoden.

In my decks, I mostly like playing (f) dwarves. In my heart however, I'd rather ride with the Rohirrim. Yay for Vikings on horses! :)

@rich - Yes, I've used this deck and won every scenario in the Core Set, Khazad-Dûm and Dwarrowdelf. Currently working my way through Shadows of Mirkwood with a second player. We might try Conflict at the Carrock this weekend, will certainly be a challenge! I sometimes tweak it a little - Landroval has gone in and out a few times, as well as extra Watchers of the Bruinen and Trollshaw Scouts. Recently added some trap cards for better staging area control. What I would like is improved card drawing and resource collection. One could always use Rivendell Minstrel to get hold of Song of Kings and then Steward or Gondor (or try and play it with Vilya). I'm also considering getting an extra core set just for the sake of Unexpected Courage and A Test of Will, as I've found no place online where TCG cards are sold separately, new or used - at least not to Europe. Is there one?

no i do not think so, even the ones in the US i have seen sell for far too high- you may as well get a 2nd core set. i got one last year after considering it since the game started. initially i didnt think it worth it but since i play a lot of 2 handed, its nice to even have extra copies of cards you get 3 copies in the core set

i would say its certainly worth it

I would love to be a Silvan player, but that's not really possible yet. 

 

Right now I'm a Ranger player. Lore is definitely my favorite sphere and I love the Ranger's ability to attack into the staging area. I'm just bummed that you can't play with Faramir on Blood of Gondor

This is tough for me to answer. I would probably have to say:

1. Outlands

2. Hobbits

3. Dwarves

 

But this is based on a few things: Firstly, I really really REALLY want to make a solid Gondor deck but I haven't been able to, so in my heart I am a Gondor player, but I just have never been able to live up to it.

 

The Outlands deck I made makes up for this, but it is practically unstoppable. I put them number one because I love the deck, it's semi-close to being my "Gondor" deck, and if I get frustrated on a quest I whip them out and smash it just to show myself that it's possible. But I kind of feel like using them is a little too easy so I tend to not use them on my first go-around in a quest. I'd rather lose 5 times as hobbits and then win with them than just breeze through as Outlands.

 

 I also really enjoyed playing as the dwarves through the Dwarrowdelf Cycle, but I've grown a bit bored of them and have moved more towards playing as the Hobbits as my primary deck.

As I don't have HoN or subsequent adventure packs my first choice is Dwarves. Just got Black Riders so I'm sure Hobbits will soon be #1. In Warhammer 40k it has to be Tau Empire whilst in LOTR strategy game it's Gondor!!!

My current deck, which I set up last Xmas to play Heirs of Numenor and have had set up all year, as I want to take it through the entire Against the Shadow cycle before I change it, is a Rohan-Gondor split, with a good dose of elves all the same. I think Rohan is the major faction though, so I'll say (d).
