  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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?
  5. 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.
  6. 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. 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.
  7. I think its a tie betweem Fastred and Arwen. Fastred has super consistent threat reduction, perhaps a Dunedain Warning along with Ally Arwen to compensate for the low, base health. I like Arwen because if you don't draw/mulligan into Nenya you still have early game questing. She also has resource/draw acceleration. With the extra uniques in the deck, if you didn't use her ability with Elven-Light that turn, you could pitch an extra Herugrim, Silver Harp it back to your hand. Basically just a repeatable, free resource.
  8. Wow, eleven mail shouldn't be there. Whoops. You're right about the Mark. I need my restricted slots for Celebrian Stone and Armored Destrider.
  9. Are you saying you don't think k the Ally versions will see play? I am a little confused. Steed of the North is perfect for them, I had not thought of that. I don't own that set of cards yet. This is my take on a Brothers deck.
  10. Do you think the Brothers will get more table time as allies? Their readying ability is cheaper, orc is probably the most common enemy trait. I don't see very many decks with the hero versions, do you have one?
  11. I haven't experienced SpGlorfindel fatigue yet. I have more decks with the Lore Version actually. Thurindir seems like such a subtle, but powerful hero. I dont think my build takes full advantage of secrecy. As you said not having leadership removes some of the more powerful cards. I could add Theodred, he may be a choice than Leadership Denethor.
  12. Do side quest not count towards you deck size and can you use Gather Information to tutor another side quest?
  13. @monkeyrama Strider was my inspiration too. I hobbled this together after thinking it over on a car ride. It's not perfect and hasn't been tested but it's my general idea. With low ally count, Strider is basically LoV for Eowyn. I could potentially quest for 7, and still have both heroes ready. Another player, @Onidsen, put me on to the idea of Eowyn + Golden Shield makes her a super tank.
  14. I'm going to try one of these soon and wonder what everyone's line ups are? I expect a lot of hobbits, the are basically tailor made for it. My Idea is Tactics Eowyn and Spirit Glorfindel because I'm being a little lazy. At 11 starting threat you can't beat it and having natural access to both Spirit and Tactics is great in my opinion. There's more than enough room for a third, I was leaning to works Leadership Denethor.
  15. Wow, that looks so much better than the OCTGN. I'll look into this, thank you.
