Dwarven Axe (1C9) Wiki

General Strategy

Any strength-boosting possession is a welcome addition to any deck, and Dwarven Axe is no exception. Besides having a 0 Twilight cost, and thus free transfer from Dwarf to Dwarf during your Fellowship Phase as needed, the ability is a staple to many of the discard decks around. Also, makes Axe Strike a much better pump for bearer, allowing Gimli, Gloin Friend to Thorin and Fror to beat strong minions without much effort.

Strengths and Weaknesses

Strong Versus...

  • Small decks
  • Low or middle strength minions
  • High strength (or multiple) minions with no damage bonus (meant to overwhelm)
