Orkish Smith x4
Mocking Goblin x4
Isengard Underling x4
Porter Troll x2
Goblin Hordes x4
Bound to its Fate x4
Unforgiving Depths x4
The Beckoning Shadow x1
Abiding Evil x2
Dread and Despair x2
Forced March x2

33 Cards total. I know it looks short on minions but once you get a few in the discard pile you can control the path with unforgiving depths and keep replacing the site with your undergrounds. Make sure that you pair it with a deck with some site control. I have found that it works well with Smeagol or Gandalf. I always go second if possible and play Courtyard Parapet then you can swap it for Abandoned Mine Shaft and make them move again with forced march netting you 2 burdens pretty easily. Use orkish smith to recicle the unforgiving depths and do it again. Remember going second is key so you can move them to the parapet but make sure you can get it back with the Depths or Theres another way (Smeagol Card). Your worst mach-ups woud be The Elf Twins Deck, and maybe a Dwarf deck with lots of pumps. Hope this helps. Very Happy

fingolfin: Nazgul are good at corruption, but Orcs also have very powerful burden cards. Bound to its Fate is probably the best burden-adding card ever, especially when used with Isengard Underling and Goblin Hordes.

No, Actually I think it is Desperate Defense of the Ring and Thin and Stretched

Any good Orc Corruption deck would pack at least 3 unforgiving depth and mostly underground sites in the deck, excluding a courtyard parapet and maybe a support site for your fellowship or two.

The idea is to go second, and try and play courtyard parapet as many times on the path as you can, then replace it each time you play it with unforgiving so you can play it again the next site. Then, seeings as your replacing it with an underground site, you can take back your orkish smith s (to get retribution or unforgiving depth back) and some underlings to replay bound to it’s fate.

Then you can use it with some emboldened orc / cutthroat orc / orc crusher and retritbution / orc spear to get some wins to add burdens. You also might want to put a couple porter troll in, and don’t forget you can use orc crusher ’s text -- expecially when fighting a RB deck. Mocking goblin is also good for orc weapon decks, because if he wins you have a guaranteed 1 burden (if you have a weapon on him and retribution out) and another possible one.

Then make the deck in SDA and play people online with it. Smile

Retribution isn’t needed. It just means you’ll have to focus mostly around Bound to its Fate, Courtyard Parapet, Porter Troll, and Mocking Goblin. And the deck probably won’t be quite as competitive.

Or you could buy them from Cobra... Wink

As AC said, it isn’t required. Most games my deck adds more burdens from bound and courtyard. It’s hard to win skirmishes in a meta so keen to tear you apart via round-a-bout methods (archery and eowyn for example)

Orc Tormentor isn’t really worth it. If your opponent needs to get rid of cards, it can even help him.

Watch-Tower of Cirith Ungol is the key. Your opponent won’t have cards in his hand to discard.

Yes please maybe cut down some on orkish smith, too add some orc miscreants, and maybe add another porter troll, and put in Orc Crusher, which rules the orcs. My overall grade for this deck is a C+.
