  1. One Deck to Rule Them All (almost)

    I love this deck! I was struggling with The Steward's Fear, so I pulled out this deck. It won easily with threat 19, 3 VP, & 6 wounds. The overall score was uncertain, because I lost track of counting turns. I'm estimating about ten. Great job, jjeagle!
  2. Beat Escape from Dol Guldur solo

    Thanks for commenting ... I'd love to see your decklist.
  3. General Deck Building Tactics?

    The Deck Building 101 articles from Tales From the Cards is very helpful.
  4. You should be able to make this Sneak Attack deck: Hero (3) Boromir (Heirs of Númenor) Prince Imrahil (A Journey to Rhosgobel) Sam Gamgee (The Black Riders) Ally (16) 2x Bill the Pony (The Black Riders) 3x Envoy of Pelargir (Heirs of Númenor) 2x Faramir (Core Set) 3x Gandalf (Core Set) 2x Guard of the Citadel (Core Set) 2x Pelargir Ship Captain (The Morgul Vale) 2x White Tower Watchman (The Drúadan Forest) Attachment (13) 2x Celebrían's Stone (Core Set) 3x Good Meal (The Redhorn Gate) 3x Steward of Gondor (Core Set) 3x Tome of Atanatar (The Blood of Gondor) 2x Visionary Leadership (The Morgul Vale) Event (21) 3x Ever Vigilant (Core Set) 3x Gaining Strength (The Steward's Fear) 3x Second Breakfast (Conflict at the Carrock) 3x Sneak Attack (Core Set) 3x Strength of Arms (The Drúadan Forest) 3x Valiant Sacrifice (Core Set) 3x Wealth of Gondor (Heirs of Númenor)
  5. It was a deck building challenge where I could use the core set and three adventure packs. I was trying to beat A Journey to Rhosgobel. After choosing two Lore heroes, there were only eight allies available that were Lore or neutral. I included six of the eight. I passed on Gleowine and Daughter of the Nimrodel, because I thought Radagast could help heal Wilyador. In the end, he wasn't needed. In hindsight, the two allies I skipped might have been better choices. The deck was successful, nonetheless.
  6. Beat Escape from Dol Guldur solo

    Combos with Gandalf and Sneak Attack or Gandalf and Ever Vigilant were key. For once, I primarily used Gandalf's ability to draw cards. Second key combo was Dunhere tricked out with multiple copies each of Unexpected Courage and Spear of the Mark. Steward of Gondor on Sam paid for everything ... not thematic, I know (the first version of this deck had Leadership Boromir instead of Sam).
  7. This low threat/staging area attack deck beat Escape from Dol Guldur solo (one handed). My threat was 49, the score was 214, it took 16 turns and Dunhere was lost to a treachery during the final quest phase (in the very moment of victory), but it was a win nonetheless.
  8. My Lore Glorfindel deck: Hero: Eowyn (Core Set) Faramir (Assault on Osgiliath) Glorfindel (Core Set) Ally: (20) 2x Escort from Edoras (A Journey to Rhosgobel) 3x Gandalf (Core Set) 3x Haldir of Lorien (A Journey to Rhosgobel) 2x Henamarth Riversong (Core Set) 3x Miner of the Iron Hills (Core Set) 2x Radagast (A Journey to Rhosgobel) 3x Erebor Hammersmith (Core Set) 2x Imladris Stargazer (Foundations of Stone) Attachment: (16) 2x Ancient Mathom (A Journey to Rhosgobel) 2x Asfaloth (Foundations of Stone) 3x Healing Herbs (Foundations of Stone) 3x Light of Valinor (Foundations of Stone) 3x Unexpected Courage (Core Set) 3x Ranger Bow (Assault on Osgiliath) Event: (14) 3x A Test of Will (Core Set) 3x Daeron's Runes (Foundations of Stone) 3x Hasty Stroke (Core Set) 2x The Galadhrim's Greeting (Core Set) 3x Lore of Imladris (Core Set)

  10. Two core set only decks:
  11. Advice for a two-deck Gondor/Rohan combo.

    What is the benefit to the Eleanor/Doughty Ranger combo?
  12. I need help

    I agree. They could have had a better range of difficulty and more game play in the core set by including more scenarios without much added cost (possibly as few as six more quest cards for two scenarios and at most 1-2 dozen more encounter cards). They could have included workable multi-sphere deck lists for beginners, too. I love the game, however, and own almost everything.
