    Because we already are getting Leadership Frodo and Gildor Inglorien this cycle

    Not sure if anyone still believes the "upcoming" page anymore, but for what it's worth, this pack has been moved up from it's original us release month of March to February. The update was this week... If they can stick with that, that would be excellent.

    I assume you are trying to stick to as many thematic elements as possible, in which case major props. I am not sure how many leadership decks I can run without steward!
    Regardless, sting is also a pretty good one to toss in, opening hand. If you can dispatch the enemy quickly, (like perhaps optionally engage another enemy, defend with sam, and kill with aragorn, then pull the one guarding sting... sam should be able to at least lay on damage with the stat line boost) then that +1 across the board on Sam is huge. Once the contract flips he becomes an absolute monster.
    Edit: I just realized Sting was in your side board.

    player3351457 got a reaction from Wandalf the Gizzard in Spirit Beregond and Spear of the Citadel   
    I think because of the nature of the language, GrandSpleen and Halberto are correct. It would be different if Beregond's text box said "After Beregond exhausts to defend an attack..." or "After Beregond is declared as a defender..." but instead it says "After Beregond defends an attack..."
    Thus, the attack must be completed in order to trigger the ability. The spear interrupts the attack. 
    If you refer to Seastan's guide to action windows (https://ringsdb.com/decklist/view/10407/a-guide-to-action-windows-1.0) Spear of the citadel would trigger at 6.4.1 while Beregond's ability would trigger at 6.4.4.

    My initial thought is fall of gil-galad on saruman, chump out, then play the houses of healing/fortune or fate (plus a whole bunch of threat reduction in between)

    I feel like it happens a lot. Maybe I play a lot of niche ways but I feel like we just cant seem to clear locations fast enough. There's no equivalent to a dunedain deck for locations, i.e. you welcome them and can clear them out, unless it specializes in staging area clearing. Like I said northern trackers and rhovanion outriders are excellent cards, but boy are there few and far between when it comes to travel and clearing in the same round.
     
    Maybe 2 cost is more economical, but even if it's a timing issue, paying the travel cost might not be so bad. For example:
    --Round 0 when you aren't given a setup active location
    --the travel cost is a threat hit and you are sitting at 48. You use loreargorn in the refresh phase and can now travel to the location and take the threat hit.
    --you have to engage an enemy as a travel cost. Doing so after shadows are dealt in the combat phase helps avoid attacks, and can even give you a leg up on killing an enemy without having to defend against it first
    To be able to control the timing of traveling to a location, combined with the ability to clear out a location and travel to another immediately after, is definitely worth the cost for me.

    This is correct: there is no action window between steps #2 and #3 of RR Damage. So any Action-related shenanigans aren't going to work at that timing point.

    With this latest spoiler, it appears we could have a master card in each pack, belonging to a sphere. With all but one spirit and one tactics card spoiled in the city of ulfast pack, I would guess that the next master card in that pack is a tactics attachment.

    Also, the news indicate that the contract of this AP is about playing only one hero, but allow us to start with an attachment on him. We don't have any more information (no visual of the card) but it is already interesting.

    And today we get a news with some cards:
     

    Saruman
    Istari. Isengard.
    When a player card effect should reduce your threat by any amount, reduce this amount to 1.
    As long as you play an event with the printed keyword Doomed Saruman gain the tactics, leadership and spirit icons.
    Response: After you play a card with the Doomed keyword, ready Saruman

    Saruman Staff
    Artifact. Item. Staff.
    Action: exhaust the Saruman staff to choose between: reduce by 2 the X valor of the next doomed event you play this phase or shearch the top 5 of your deck for a doomed event and add if to your hand. (shuffle your deck.)


    Golden Belt
    Item
    Attach this card to a hero (Limit [not readable but probably limit 1 per hero)]
    The attached hero can have 1 additional [probably restricted but we can't read this part] attachment.

    Rohirrim Scout
    Rohan. Scout.
    Action: Discard Rohirrim Scout to choose a non-unique enemy in the staging area. Don't make engagement checks from that enemy against you this turn
    I bet that the 2/2/2 ally for 2 is both Isengard and doomed :).

    Honestly, what this contract needs (and what I've been waiting for for a long time) is an event (maybe 3 cost) that says: "action: if there is no active location, choose a location in the staging area. Travel to that location." It's a way to avoid location lock that becomes prevalent in 4 player games (without someone carrying northern trackers) and with this, you could in theory plow through your loot deck in a single game. That's the only way I could see something like this accelerating. All the cards we have now have "make the active location" which doesn't count as a travel (up to this point has been a boon because who wants to pay travel costs?)

    player3351457 reacted to AllWingsStandyingBy in Wrath and Ruin   
    Not only that, but it actually requires traveling to locations, which many decks try to do as little of as possible (e.g. Asfaloth, Northern Trackers, etc.).  Given that it requires traveling to locations, realistically it will probably only get out 3-6 cards from the deck.  Still, 3-6 cards of guarded caliber isn't bad, and it's certainly fun, but it'll be hard-pressed to find a deck willing to give up on running cards like Steward of Gondor, Unexpected Courage, and the like.
