Foes of Mordor (1U105) Wiki

General Strategy

A support area condition allowing a Free Peoples player to wound a Sauron minion per exertion of a Gondor character, Foes of Mordor had limited function in the early formats of the Lord of the Rings trading card game. These exertions could prevent powerful actions like those of Tower Assassin or Orc Patrol, or possibly redirect wounds that might come from cards like Orc Soldier, Orc War Band, or Hate. With access to effective healing cards, such as Might of Numenor, Citadel of Minas Tirith or Elrond, Herald to Gil-Galad, these exertions may not accumulate too quickly while dismantling a shadow.

Foes of Mordor received new life with the introduction of The Return of the King sets, partially because they introduced the keyword Enduring, which works particularly well with Wraith companions as it allows them to exert at no cost, making themselves strength +2 for each exertion. Additionally, set 7 introduced Besiegers, a commonly seen Sauron shadow which increased the chance that Foes of Mordor would be useful in a game.

Strengths and Weaknesses

Weak Versus...

  • Outside of a Gondor Wraith deck, Foes of Mordor does not add much when playing against a Shadow without Sauron
  • Pre-skirmish wounding, particularly that targeting Gondor companions
