So the point here is to empty your draw deck before you opponent reaches site 8. On the way, control as many sites as possible. Bid 2, go first. Get prep out of your deck with site 1. Double if you can, if not no worries. If you draw rest by blind night early, discard it and pick it up later with the ring. Otherwise, try and save it as it may allow you to drop the bomb an extra time if needed. Get the following stacked on preparations: 4x Southron archer, Gothmog, High Vantage (if they are running Greenleaf/gorns bow) and CbtR. If they have 6 or more companions, drop high vantage and gothmog and go for the uruk hai and greed. Once your deck is empty, shuffle these into it with RBBN. Draw at site 8, use the threats to get enough twilight to play it all, and boom. 4+5*number of sites controlled, sometimes upwards of 30 wounds. And, if you kept RbbN and didn't use your ring, you can do it again next site if you opponent survives. Also, if you manage 2-3 sites by site 6 and have a couple in hand, a mini bomb is an option. Don't go over 5 companions if you can help it, unless MAYBE you have slacked thirsts stacked for enquea protection. The reason for the extra is that they have a bad habit of dying Tongue Slacked is also there for grima protection.

I wonder whether you have enough sitecontrol options. I would certainly add the Berserker, since you add threats. Like the bomb idea though, it has proved to be very reliable.

Somebody set us up the bomb!

Very nice. I was on the receiving end of 16-20 archery and it mowed down my otherwise fine Freeps. Smiley

Good call on Berserker. Didn't even think of him. Usually 3 sites is enough to mow down the freeps if they are running less than 6 companions. 3 sites makes for 19 wounds with gothmog and the archers. More than 6 can be trouble, hence greed.

I just got the cards to make this deck in real life... I can't wait to see the reaction of my playgroup XD Slightly modded in real life for a different meta than online, and it has to be able to take down 2 players instead of one. Shouldn't be a problem with 2x RBBN, stack one and shuffle it back instead of gothmog or something.
