Bid 0. It doesn't matter if you start or not. You need your site 1 as much as you need your site 2.

My sites 2-4-5-6-7-9 are battlegrounds.

The other fellowship uses a strong Gimli with cards like Horn of Helm and  Best Company which are great at battlegrounds. Once you have all 4 Toss Me out and he has his Axe, Gimli is strenght 14. I haven't tried it yet.

The other fellowship uses elven tokens with Gorn. Haldir's text is interesting on battleground sites.

The shadow is one of the most effective I have ever used. Once you control site some sites, they become very dangerous, especially if you control a battleground. Many of those Uruks are extremely good on battlegrounds. There are also some big uruks who become very cheap at then end of the game. In late game, Uruk-hai band become very strong. It's quite easy to win the skirmishes with all the pumps and We are the fighting uruk-hai is one of the most dangerous ever made. Most of my wins on GCCG were shadow wins.

I don't know how you would make the room, but you should probably run 2 more Uruk Stormer. Then you could run Gimli, Skilled Defender and Horn of Helm, if you liked that idea. And 35-35 is pretty reasonable.

Edit: Or you could run another elf or two. I think I'd like to see a few more companions. A Faramir, Son of Denethor is a nice splash companion or Pengedhel, Naith Warrior is pretty nice too.

I have noticed there are many cards in Towers that discard cards from your own hand. This was probably in response to Fellowship choke decks that clogged up your hand.

As a result, IMO bigger decks are easier to play in Towers provided you use some of the many cards that discard cards from your own hand ....

Cw0rk: Hope you are doing well; it's been a long time.

I have been playing the Hobbit/Gimli Free Peoples a few times with this shadow and enjoy it quite a bit. I have run into a few problems along the way (lack of condition discard is the deck's biggest weakness) but getting Aragorn and Gimli pumped up enough to beat most of what you run into is very satisfying.

I have maxed out at six sites taken with the shadow, which means a free Uruk-Hai Horde, but naturally that isn't to be expected in all games.

Sorry all for reviving long-dead topics (over eight years!) but I have been using this deck recently and wanted to encourage a few new ideas that aren't the normal Mono-Rohan or Mono-Ring-Bound Rangers for Towers Block.
