Its not bad mate, doesnt leap out and strike you, but fairly good representation of the formats. Right now id give a 3 but could be tempted with a 4.

Spammers really are amazing creatures. You can learn all there is to know about their ways in a month. And yet, after a hundred years, they can still surprise you. Razz

I pmed you about this, but Iíll post my advice here as well.

FotR Block


Hobbit Hospital. Emphasize that you can bet a few burdens to get site 1 out for your Hobbit Farmer. Then point out Throrís Map for site 7, so you donít run up against Anduins Confluence problems.

Last Alliance. Add 2x Elrond, Herald to Gil-Galad, his healing ability is awesome with Greenleaf, and his auto-heal every turn is also awesome. Cut 2x Aragorn, King in Exile, you pull him with The Prancing Pony.

Twilight Nazzies. It Wants to Be Found is in the wrong section. I would cut the Gates of the Dead City, as nobodyís gonna be stupid enough to exert Frodo, or work in two additional Blade Tips. Add an extra Ulaire Otsea, Ringwraith in Twilight and 2x Nazgul Sword. Mention Eregion Hills.

Sauron Corruption. Add in a FP side. This is extremely important. Cut 2x His Cruelty and Malice, 2x thin and Stretched, and 1 The Irresistible Shadow. Add 4x Orc Inquisitor, and 2x Tower Assassin. (FotR block Sauron with no Tower Assassin?!?!?!)

Moria Swarm- Cut and Enquea and an Ancient Chieftain for 2x Ulaire Nertea, Messenger of Dol Guldur. Cut 2x Goblin Flankers for the Underdeeps of Moria.

I would swap the order around toÖ

5. Hobbit Hospital.

4. Dwarf/Sauron Discarding Corruption.

3. Twilight Nazgul

2. Last Alliance

1. Moria Swarm

TT Block

Dunlendings- I would run them with Hillman Band and No Retreat. Sweet site control combo. Along with Hillman Rabble, Dunlending Looter, and Dunlending Elder, sweet combo. Dunlending Headman is a good way to control sites, if played right.

Uruk Site Control- the best Isengard site control is run with swarm. Down to the Last Child, Uruk-Hai Horde, Uruk-Hai Mob, and a bunch of dirt cheap Uruks. Load up Attack on Helmís Deep and seize control of site after site. Banner of Isengard is awesome as well.

Ents- Why the hobbit swords for people who discard themselves? Nice deck, cut the hobbit swords.

Elves- Nice. Aragorn, Defender of Free Peoples would be a good addition. Drop Blades Drawn for him, and use the Riddermark. If not, consider Fereveldir, Son of Thandroden.

Three Hunters- No wounding? Shocked QUICK! 4X Baruk Khazad, and 4x Quick as May Be. Behold the White Rider, since youíre running Gandalf, Mithrandir, Mithrandir! and Defend it and Hope. Consider Gimli, Skilled Defender over Lock-bearer.

Ring-Bound Rangers- I know its not in your list, but thatís the point. They should be number one. Rolling Eyes

RotK Block

Besiegers- Other than not being number 1, no problem. I think you can use reflections cards in king block, if so, Sauron is nice. If not, someone correct me.

Rohan- Shouldnít be in here. Rohan wasnít a viable deck really. To easy to kill. A Saved from the Fire deck should be in this place.

Sauron Uruk-Hai- More strategy.

Noble Leaders- No Guarded City? This would be a perfect place to use Saved from the Fire with Gandalf, Leader of men, BTW.

Elvents- Question Elvents werenít viable until the release of EME DDB. I would cut them.

Youíre missing Rout wounding and ENDURING NAZGUL CORRUPTION!!!!!!!! *whacks over head* What is King Block without Enduring Nazzies?!?!? Cut Rohan and Elvents for these decks.

Currently, youíre getting a three. Add some more strategy, a synopsis of the blockís play environment, and most popular decks, new mechanics, etc. Currently, your article is a bunch of deck thrown together.


I donít think itís polite of you to write this to the articleís writer. Is this HIS article or YOURS? Actually I think youíre being very arrogant.

Youíre not reviewing the article at all, you are telling him what to write and how to write it. Formating is one thing, but youíre basicly telling him what to include and what to take from the article... are you some kind of authority around here Confused ? If you would or wouldnít write about something, well that affects your article but as far as I know this is his article and he choses what to put in.

Anyway I didnít get all this "do this, do that" thing...

Its a suggestion. Ultimately, he gets to write what he wants to write, but thatís what reviewing does, is help make an article best, point out spots he missed, etc. If trying to help is being arrogant, then I guess Iím arrogant.

Reviewing is for helping the author improve an article.

NB reviewed the article. If you donít like the way he did it, then let him know via PM rather than cluttering up Legolesí article.

Nice article, Legoles. A good review of the decks, but nothing was original or new. A 4 from me. Thumbs Up
I had to put something here.

its a good idea except when reviewing DCís when quoting something, always post more then you quote its online etiquette
