    Noldor Deck Building

    Uhttp://ringsdb.com/deck/view/106693 http://ringsdb.com/deck/view/99346 These were my attempts at a psuedo-Noldor deck. My idea was a solo deck that showcases Elrond, without Vilya for flavor and personal challenege, prowess as he was when he was the Herald of Gil-Galad. It's not super tied into the traditional Noldor Archetype. It did put me on the path of some the aforementioned cards.

    Noldor Deck Building

    I understand there's staples to the Noldor archetype (Hero Erestor, Cirdan, Elven-Light), but I'm not sure on what really makes them work so well besides obscene card draw. What are the best targets for discarding besides Elven light, Lords of the Eldar, and Ally Glorfindel? Are cards like Eleven Jeweler and Spear good or more deck specific? Please share your Noldor decks and thoughts.

    Undeveloped Traits

    The Dale mechanics do seem like fun. I had forgotten the Seastan factor. I suppose the developers consider that now when they make additions to the game.

    Undeveloped Traits

    I've made a combat deck for my 2 handed plays based around Tactics Imrahil. The decks posted on RingsDB. http://ringsdb.com/decklist/view/7994/come-death-come-honor-1.0 I won't argue that he's not great for Silvan decks with elf-friend, but I spun my idea around his warrior trait instead. Some of the best allies have this trait, ally versions of Beorn, Boromir, and Legolas. The Silvan archers for thier enter play effects. It had me wondering what fully developed Warrior archetype would be. Or what the Scout trait would involve. Beornings? Secrecy and Doom have also fallen to the wayside too. Granted secrecy and Doom aren't "traits" what are some of the others you'd like to see get a little limelight?

    Lore Faramir, Help with a deck Idea

    Threat reduction has been a problem. Keeping enemies in staging for long wasn't the aim. More to get some direct damage in and then let Faramir get the kill. Occasionally pushing them back into staging so he can snipe out with Great Yew Bow while getting his damage boost. Will power generation is a little low too. Eowyn+Damrod+ and just a couple of Allies gives me 10+. I would have used Fastred, but I don't own the card. He does threat reduction and moves enemies. Thats very close to a Dunhere deck, with more setup.
  7. Im working on a way to get mileage out of Lore Faramir. What my deck has come down to Faramir/Damrod/TacEowyn in a general kind of trap deck. With Eowyn you even get a nice starting threat of 26. I had debated on her vs Mirlonde, but then Id have to include Song of Battle for Great Yew Bow. I dont actually own Secret Vigil, but its the only reasonable threat management in the decks spheres. Faramir's ability to gain attack from enemies staying in staging is neat, but counter productive in most instances. Even using Ranger Spikes to mitigate threat contribution enemies staying there too long isnt a good thing. So I thought to use Ithillen Archer to push enemies back into staging after engaging, then you can attack them with a Great Yew Bow equipped Faramir. This would make use of his passive attack boost while letting you pick off enemies too. Ithillen Archer really needs a spear or two to be most effective. 2 attack isnt enough in a lot of later quest. I included Ranger Bow and Spear for more damage. On weaker enemies, a shot or two from Ranger bow and a Gondorian Spearman can eliminate them leaving the heavier attacks to beefier Orcs and the like. Ive beaten Journey Down the Anduin as of right now. Ill be teasting more with a small amount of free time I have coming up. Id like any and all advice on this. I don't see a lot LoFaramir decks because he needs to be built around but I found the idea and deck fun. Even knda thematic. Except for Master of the Forge. The deck is posted here:http://ringsdb.com/decklist/view/7364/the-heir-in-itillien-1.0

    Gamling VS Guthwine

    I'm just wondering opinions on these. I had thought Guthwine a strictly better card for Rohan, but I made a deck recently that makes good use of Gamling still. I think its ally space vs restricted space. My deck uses TaEomer, Firefoot, and the warhorse so it was logical I use Gamling for recursion.

    Unseen Strike - The hidden gem?

    I used it in a Bard the Bowman deck with low threat, Snipe out Balrogs, Trolls, Dragons. etc

    Scout Archetype

    Is the developed yet? Playable? There's lots of new cards making use of Hero/allies traits, but so do not see much posted about this one.

    RND Deck Building

    Wow, thank you for that. I had not had time to get into the idea completely, it was only a few hours old when I posted here. When I would roll non functioning line ups I would just reroll all three. Dropping one and rerolling is better, rolling six for a pool is better than that. Ranged/Sentinel heroes I just glossed over the keyword because I play alone, single handed nowadays. I don't any players nearby that I know and I play in OCTGN primarily. I didn't think every combination, even if they passed the line up step would result in a working deck. I still have a limited card pool. The idea of drawing the heroes like that it to change the way I would approach deck building. Thanks @Rouxxor. The Fatty deck I did not have high hopes for, but it accomplished the initial aim of using a line up I don't think anyone would consider. With your advice and changes it may be a more playable deck now. I really appreciate all the ideas.

    I picked Sam because he would trigger his ability after you used Fatty's. It's not something that happened every turn, but it did come in handy when you needed just that little bit of extra will power. I had not considered using Treebeard. All the Hobbit cards lacked consistency because it becomes this large multi card combo for, at best , ,maybe 5-6 threat reduction. Ethir swordsman addition doesn't surprise me, I wanted to put him in there. As soon as I had that card it went into every deck it would fit. I could try another roll if you're interested in making decks like this.

    I don't have the set that has Lindir, I'm not familiar with his ability. I wasn't very impressed with the Hobbits + Pipes after testing. I wanted to use dusty cards too. Is Raise the Shite from the coming Mountain of Fire? What are testing against? Can you post your version so I can try?

    Some of the rolls are just absolute trash, I couldn't figure out a gimmick. One that seemed feasible was a Elfhelm/Idraen/Theodred deck.

    I saw an idea floating around about randomly selecting heroes to kick off deck ideas. The point was that you would generally come out with unexpected lineups and combinations. I put together a RNG table that rolled for sphere (1-4) and then for heroes (1-15/16). My first roll was Tactics Eowyn, Lanwyn, and Fatty Bolger. Sweet. Here's what I put together. http://ringsdb.com/decklist/view/6521/fatty-shield-of-the-shire-1.0 It's not optimal or One Deck to Rule Them All, but it was fun and less conventional than the tried archetypes and power decks.
