Hey,

If you could choose what the 18 foils were for T&D, and the 9 Masterworks foils, what would you choose? Here is my list:

RF
Aragorn, Heir to the Throne of Gondor
Beorning Axe
Boromir, Proud and Noble Man
Deceit
Erkenbrandís Horn
Erkenbrandís Shield
Faramir, Captain of Ithilien
Galadrielís Silver Ewer
Gamlingís Horn
Gil-galad, High King of the Noldor
Gothmog, Morgul Leader
Grond, Forged With Black Steel
Horn of Boromir, The Great Horn
Isildur, Sword-bearer
Radagastís Herb Bag
Shagrat, Tower Captain
Sting, Elven Long Knife
Treachery

Masterworks
Aragorn, Heir to the Throne of Gondor
Beorning Axe
Boromir, Proud and Noble Man
Faramir, Captain of Ithilien
Galadrielís Silver Ewer
Gil-galad, High King of the Noldor
Gothmog, Morgul Leader
Grond, Forged With Black Steel
Sting, Elven Long Knife

your list is nice but I would change some stuff in there:

I would remove gorn for gimli in both regular and masterworks (we need more dwarven foils)

In the masterworks I assume you are thinking if all cultures had ATís right?

if not, then I would remove gothmog, sting and grond for glorfindel, theoden and one of the horns.

in the regular ones I would remove 2 of the possessions (out of the rohan ones and the herb bag) and include glorfindel and grima

Glorfindel looks gay, so thatís a pass. Aragorn should have gotten Masterworks, and Gimli RF (since thereís no alternate pattern for Dwarves). The same is to be said for the Hobbits, so Sting fits just fine in the standard foil (and looks good at that). The elven alternate looks like crap, besides, so thatís another reason Glorfindel shouldnít have been touched. But Gil-Galad should have gotten the love, along with Haldir, who finally gets a manly (for an elf) looking pose. Iíd have also given Theoden one last shot at Masterworks.

Also, on behalf of Gondor, Denethorís Sword being foiled should have gone to Faramir, in both R and Masterworks. Get an "all shadowy" ranger fellowship on the table, that would be cool. And, for a kicker, take away one of Erkenbrandís playtoys in both foil versions and given them to Isildur. A black bordered Isildur; rather poetic, when you think about it.

Iíd drop Beorning Axe in both foil and Masterworks for Our Time in both foils. Itís a classic Gandalf card in the aspect of that all knowing mode of play, which hearkening back to the Glamdrings and Staffs of old, the pumps based on twilight in the pool; all the while trying to make a choke arrangement to get you there. Besides, thereís no character worth giving a Masterworked Beorning Axe to that came in that alternate background. Wink Thereís something to be said about table fashion.

Best foil of the set as it stands is Pull of the Ring, Masterworks. Period. The shine of the necklace against the rashed skin of Frodoís neck just sets off all sorts of chills, and fits the bill for a good Nazgul card. Now, the gametext, not so much. Iím forcefully trying to come up with a worthwhile mix of cards to throw in two or three just to make it look sick.

Considering how much of an in-joke Decipher seems to run with the whole "your armís off" gag across their games, and the fact that it showed up for the final LOTR installment in the form of both Disarmed (again? *sigh* ) and Cleaved, I am incredibly surprised that Disarmed wasnít given the role of junk rare (as it always is, and as Cleaved can attest to), and promoted to junk foil in the process.

Flashbacks to the days of R1, R2, and R3. And no, Iím not referring to droids... well, yeah, I am. I pulled enough BS Star Wars R3 rare droids to fill a a shoebox.

And finally, if I had been in the position to have any creative input for the foiling of T&D, Iíd have cashed in no less than four of the MW for a single do-over from Rise of Saruman:

Anduril, Sword that was Broken, should have been a Masterworks. Iíd say throwing back the other Erkenbrand toy, the Rohan Diadem, Radagastís Bag, and the Crown of Gondor would have been worth that.

I havenít looked at those Collection cards in so long I forgot about it. But itís kind of pointless at this stage, being that it would be one RF alternate of Gimli, for which a brand new foiled version of the template would have needed to be prepared. Given the rehashing of previous card images in the last two sets, fat chance that anyone at Decipher could have been bothered to properly come up with a good looking foil layout for a one-off.
