Savagery to Match Their Numbers (1R139) Wiki

General Strategy

The key skirmish pump for the Uruk-Hai race, Savagery to Match Their Numbers offers a +2 strength bonus for a twilight cost of (0) against any companion; however, when a Fellowship contains at least 5 companions, the minion becomes fierce and Savagery to Match Their Numbers offers a +4 strength bonus which lasts until the regroup phase. The ability for this strength bonus to last through a second skirmish with just the single event makes it relatively unusual for a skirmish pump. Savagery to Match Their Numbers can alter a Free Peoples players' strategy significantly–the player may not complete a strategy or playing a fifth companion to avoid the full effect of this pump, making it even better crowd control than Greed or Ulaire Enquea, Lieutenant of Morgul.

Savagery to Match Their Numbers was added to the X-List in formats after Fellowship block, rendering the card unplayable in all subsequent formats. In casual formats, the event can be used with Isengard or Sauron Uruk-Hai, like Saruman's Ambition or Beyond the Height of Men.

With the Reflections expansion, Sack of the Shire is the closest Isengard pump offered, although Ferocity is a zero-cost strength +2/3 pump in The Two Towers base set.
