I tried to build and play test a dwarf deck along those lines mentioned in this thread as well as a swarm deck, but I tink the holes in the cards available to me are just too big. I donít have any copies of Goblin Armory anymore (I traded then ones I had a couple years ago), as an example. I also hae, amazingly, only one goblin spear. For the dwarves, I have most of the cards, but lacking Gimli bearer of grudges and Durin III is a problem. Iím also lacking a handful of other cards for it, although I DID find a second copy of Baruk Khazad. I think the deck was also a little big the way I had it set up, something Iím going to try to fix. At any rate, it wasnít fast enough, and I had some trouble getting Gimli powered up. Ring of Fury would help, another card I donít have. Long story short, Iím going to buy some boxes. Any reccomendations? I was planning on at least 2 Fellowship and at least 2 Reflections. Any advice on other good sets I should look into? Remember I canít afford much and this primarily movie block. Current sets are expensive Wink. I donít have Aragornís bow, and I have only one copy of his ring. I only have one copy of last alliance. Basically think of the BEST cards and chances are I donít have them Wink Thanks for all the advice thus far!

you may wany to look into buying some singles. that way you can get exactly what you need to fill in the holes. but youíre right, a reflections box would help.

I thought about, and priced, the singles, but itís just too much money. It would actually cost me considerably more than the boxes to buy what I would need... better the chance it on a few boxes and see what fate decides. Besides, I get a lot more cards that way, maybe something I could use in the future? Reflections is a no brainer, Fellowship I thought would help as well. But Iím unsuer about the usefulness of other sets (Two Towers? Realms?).

two towers could help if you go with isengard. another thing you might want to see about is the starter decks. they are pretty cheap and you could suppliment with the other cards you have. fellowship will definately help with the dwarves.

Just remember...with Reflections, you only get 2 Reflections cards per booster pack. The rest are FOTR and TTT, so I donít think you should even bother getting FOTR boxes.
