Moria Scout (1C191) Wiki

General Strategy

Moria Scout is played in most Moria decks, as he essentially plays for a net zero twilight when not roaming and when spotting an Elf. With the popularity of the “Super Friends” Fellowship of Legolas, Greenleaf, Arwen, Daughter of Elrond, and Aragorn, as well as the powerful Elven support characters like Elrond, Galadriel, Rumil, Elven Protector, and Orophin, Lorien Bowmen, Moria Scout is often a boon to Moria decks. Additionally, Moria Scout is one of a short list of Moria Orcs with the ability to exert for cards such as Threat of the Unknown or Moria Axe.

While the Shadow player is limited to 4 copies of Moria Scout in your deck, it is fairly easy to play the minion from discard using Host of Thousands, They Are Coming, The Balrog, Flame of Udun, or Host of Moria.

With its latent twilight generation, Moria Scout, like Goblin Runner can be splashed fairly easily into any deck. Both minions remain a popular additions to most swarm archetypes including Isengard or Sauron swarm, or even a swarm that is simply a compilation of small, cheap minions (potentially with anti-Frodo support like Saruman's Snows).

Goblin Scrabbler can reduce his roaming cost.
