Strategy
Bid enough to go first, so you can play The Prancing Pony. Use The Prancing Pony to pull Aragorn from your deck. If you donít go first, pray that you can get Aragorn quickly. Smile

If you get Gandalfís Wisdom, you should be adding much twilight at all when you play your possessions, and if you get both your No Stranger to the Shadows, you can be adding an extremely small amount of twilight when you move. Also, Sting can remove the small amount of twilight you do add when you play Citadel of Minas Tirith. What few minions are played should be dealt with fairly easily. If they still manage to swarm you, you can use your Dagger Strikes and Merry to make Frodo stronger, and Aragorn + Elendilís Valor can make sure that few minions can get to Frodo. Citadel of Minas Tirith can heal very well.

For the Shadow side, just play your archers, and retrieve them with Host of Thousands and They Are Coming. Goblin Armory can add twilight for your expensive minions, and prevent wounds. Goblin Runners can also add more twilight. The Balrog you can play at site 5 for cheap, to throw out a bunch of wounds. Goblin Domain makes sure that late comers are dealt with easily.

This is a cool deck, and is open to suggestions.

Even with a bit of choke, and Aragorn, isn't 4 companions a bit on the small side?
I'm not stupid. I'm just unlucky when I'm thinking.

Ah, this takes me back... Cool

Since this is a Fellowship-block deck, I'm guessing it's intended for play against other Fellowship-block decks, and that means Savagery to Match Their Numbers running wild. Four companions is a good way to go.

I'd suggest more archery to combat swarms, since that's the biggest weakness here -- probably Legolas Greenleaf (just discard him against Uruks), a 2nd Aragorn's Bow, and a few Gondor Bowmen. Power According to His Stature is always good too. Or for a cheaper solution, Thrarin, Speedbump.

First thing to take out IMO would be Elendil's Valor -- it also works as anti-swarm, but isn't as powerful and tends to clog your hand.

Shadow looks good, no suggestions there!

Good deck, and it's good to see you posting again too. Very Happy

I really like it! i agree with hblika though. you do have few companions. why don't you switch Sword of Gondor with Gondorian Blade. take out one Elendil's Valor, and replace it with another Armor.

Well I don't. When I say fellowship block, I mean it. And the small amount of companions is fine; if I go to 6, then I'll get hit by Greed or Enquea.
