canít remember, but isnít there a card that makes all sites underground? If so, archery would crumble to the balrog.

perhap canít remember, but there is a condition in the orc culture that letsyou replace the fellowship current site with an underground site from your adventure deck. It would help if you could keep it from being discarded by the beloved Namarie Thumbs Up.

Balrog, Demon of Might, then--I would need lots of Ageís End cards against it. Dang. Also, the Balrog is at the mercy of rangers. As is Shelob, who I really wanted to make a Shadow deck around. =S

Now, Iím thinking about trying much stronger fellowships, maybe even using lame rangers or Elves too (i.e. exhaust roaming minion, then play that event from ROTK which allows you to wound a minion, or ícancel skirmish with roaming minioní stuff). See, he used Evil Men archers with Howdah, and all those evil men had 12 strength, which was higher than my Rohan menís strength of 11 or so. And the archery killed of all the weak ones and exhausted my Rohan men. Then they died, as did Frodo, despite having 5 vitality. Sigh. XD

Found it, Skulking Goblin makes the current site underground. Pair that with The Balrog, Demon of Might and youíve got one nasty anti-archery deck.

Harry Goatleaf, Ruffian, Rough Man of the South, and Squint-Eyed Southerner all are strong early and arenít roaming. Use the followers deck above to get rid of all freeps cards and get these cards in play asap. That about covers it I think. Thumbs Up

PS Kralik, itís Rough Man FROM the south, not of the south.

Hmm....do you have decklists for those? Another problem I tend to have is cycling--I often get lots of cards I donít need (and can only discard one), or I have lots of cards I want to hoard so I keep them in my hand until the end, hoping theyíll be useful enough to trigger and kill. So decklists would help flesh out the anti-archery minions idea nicely. If you could do that, Iíd be much appreciative.

You guys all seem to know your strats. And thanks so much for the decklists so far! Keep em coming. Prove to me you can beat my friend! Very Happy

for problems with cycling, use dwarves or that follower deck that AC made, they usually get through all the freeps cards pretty quickly.
hmm, I donít have a decklist but I just made this up right now (feel free to offer criticism)

(47 total)
Minions
Skulking Goblin x4
The Balrog, Demon of Might x4 (donít know why it wonít link right now)
Unyielding Goblin x3
Watchful Orc x3
Isengard Underling x2
Frenzied Orc x2
Denizen of Moria x3
Denizen of the Black Pit x2



Possessions
Mordor Scimitar x2
Orc Hammer x2

Artifacts
Whip of Many Thongs, Weapon of Flame and Shadow x2

Events
Armed for Battle x1
Strength in Shadows x3
Dread and Despair x3 (for Namarie)
Conquered Halls x3

Conditions
Spurred to Battle x4 (minions can get pricey)
Goblin Hordes x4


Mainly, cycle with followers or dwarves to get Skulking Goblin and DoM. Most of this stuff is keyed toward strengthening minions at underground sites. Skipping the archery phase with DoM and getting pretty strong minions to crush those pesky elves are the main Focus.

Frenzy of Arrows (pre-errata) murders the follower deck by adding about 50 arrows. Playing the Balrog more than once would be a struggle considering to play him and Skulking Goblin costs 16. Lothlorien Guides takes out Spurred to Battle...

This deck, however, would still punish my elves badly. Dont use it.

Iíll try the Gandy Followers.

(32)

Gandalf, Bearer of Obligation
Ring of Rings

Brand, King of Dale
Barliman Butterbur, Red-Faced Landlord

Jarnsmid
Ghan-Buri-Ghan
Grimbeorn
Erland
Treebeard, Enraged Shepherd
Librarian

Strange Meeting x 4
Last Stand x 4
Beorning Axe x 2
Glamdring, Foe-Hammer

Radagast Follower
Pallando x 2
Gwaihir
Alatar x 2

Guidance of the Istari x 4
For A While Less Dark x 2

Radagastís Herb Bag

Strange Meeting + Followers = Big beat-up. Strength pumps help, Treebeard is just a huge gigantic smasher, plus he can soften minions up so your dudes can score a kill.

The problem with Gandy RB decks is that corruption is such an easy way to win, even with Watch and Wait and Glamdring, Foe-Hammer out. Unless you use hobbits with Measure of Comfort or companions like that Sam which makes other companionsí resistance +1, arenít Gandy RB decks fried meat for Nazzy corruption and suchlike?

Also, anyone else got further comments on the goblin deck proposed? Thanks to those whoíve commented so far, all are duly noted. Smile

Not with Jarnsmid. You should be able to toss cards long enough to survive until Jarnsmid + Watch and Wait takes out 3 burdens.

Thatís what I usually do, unless he gets picked off by a Cantea, BA early Shocked
