Nazgul Sword (1U218) Wiki

General Strategy

A fairly standard Nazgul weapon which is occasionally seen in Wraith decks, Nazgul Sword can help weaker Ringwraiths such as Ulaire Lemenya or Ulaire Nelya to win their skirmishes. Its synergy with burdens works very well against decks with no burden removal, as it only takes one or two It Wants to Be Found and Eregion Hills to grant the Damage bonus, which can wreak havoc in the hands of a Fierce Nazgul. However, with the danger of an opponent having Sam, Son of Hamfast or any other burden removing cards, the possession can quickly be reduced to a mere strength booster once again. Since corruption decks generally aren't focused on winning skirmishes, and Nazgul beatdown decks don't really focus on burden adding, this weapon can be an example of a card that can dilute a deck too much, forcing it towards two different goals instead of focusing on one, specific strategy. One Wraith card that can help with this is Drawn to its Power, which ties these two strategies together, and can have a devastating effect on Fellowships with 4 copies on the table.

In spite of Nazgul Sword's drawbacks, there are several Nazgul who can gain much benefit from this possession: Ulaire Toldea, Messenger of Morgul's ability to assign himself to companions (Spotting 4 burdens), is twice as nasty with the damage + 1 bonus from this sword, while Ulaire Nelya, Ringwraith in Twilight can potentially hit Damage + 2 when using this weapon. Finally, Ulaire Enquea, Thrall of the One has the ability to add burdens mid skirmish, potentially granting him the damage bonus even against burden removing Fellowships.
