Ferny Frost Attack
« on: February 16, 2010, 06:13:30 PM »
Sites 
(4) Pass of Caradhras (1U348
(7) Anduin Wilderland (1C354
(9) Slopes of Amon Hen (1U361
 
Shadow (30) 
4x Saruman's Frost (1U135
4x Saruman's Snows (1C138
4x Parry (1R132
4x *Bill Ferny, Swarthy Sneering Fellow (2R75
4x Goblin Runner (1U178
2x Isengard Shaman (3C59
4x Isengard Warrior (3U61
4x Uruk Savage (1C151

This is a classic. People were playing this many years ago.

Basically, the objective is to have Ferny overwhelm Frodo using Saruman's Frost to make him strength 2. If he has the sword, use Parry. Use Saruman's Snows to make sure he doesn't get stronger. Isengard Warrior stops arrows from killing Ferny.

This deck could be defeated by Albert Dreary, Orc-Bane, Secret Sentinels and many more but it's still a decent trick. I guess No Ordinary Storm and Tower Assassin could be added. Maybe that it would work well using Saruman and A Fell Voice on the air, but I just made this deck in 5 minutes and I didn't have time to playtest it.

For some reason, I remember another four Uruk-Hai to go along with the four Parry. Uruk Soldier...is he the 7-1, [2] guy?

Yeah, but if I'd put another Uruk-Hai in, it would be another one, maybe Uruk Spy due to additional Vitality point which could help playing more weather conditions.

Is it possible to build a similar Deck in Movie? Maybe a little more efficient against Maneuver wounding?

Btw, what do you think of adding Spies of Saruman? And maybe some Shotgun Enquea to cause some trouble and kill off the strongest companions when facing a big fellowship?

once again WK i must point out that in a RB kill deck, shoutgun enquea is overkill as the number of companions doesn't matter if your only goal is to overwhelm the RB using ferny

A deck like this will not work in movie block because of the alternate ring-bearers and the maneuver wounding.

Oh wow, I've never heard of this type of deck before.  I need to go build this.

Perhaps thrown in a couple Morgul Skulkers to cycle Ferny back in?

I just thought that Sam would cause big issues to this deck. A Promise, O Elbereth and There and back again as well. I would have to use Ferny twice vs Sam. Adding Helpless and Nazgul would make me include too many different cards. Seems like Saruman's Power is essential. I'll add Saruman as well, if I can assign an Uruk to a Strength -2 Sam, he could die.

I wanna stay at 33 cards max. I'm thinking about using Spies of Saruman instead of the Isengard Orcs.

To counter Secret Sentinels, I'll put Legolas and The White Arrow of Lorien in my fellowship.

Still, Secret Sentinels will ruin your day, and trust me, that card is widely played. I would rather play the Anduin Confluence as site 7 to ditch all Elf allies, and also I would consider Spies of Saruman if you can make space for it.

What he says is the truth, and trust him, maybe take a look at his success rate in the FotR Block league... ;)

Yeah, I know that Secret Sentinels is dangerous. Using Anduin Confluence may be a good idea.

Keep in mind that I made this deck in 5 minutes, it was just to show the idea to some players who might have never heard about it.

Definitely use Spies of Saruman.  You'll also want Isenguard Smith and Saruman's Power (drop power right before you "snow" the board).

Also, if you get REALLY concerned about being shot down, just throw in Greed, much better for Isen than Shotgun enquea and can eliminate a Sam.

Finally, if you're concerned about Sam, then throw in an extra Bill so you can pull off the conditions twice.

This deck is ingenious.  I love these decks that are insanely weird, but amazingly effective.  It's hard because the focus is on one minion, so a horrible draw could really screw you up.  But considering the deck size and the 4 copies of Bill, it seems like it will work great.

Morgul Skirmisher COULD be great, but it's probably not worth the slots.

This is why this Shadow Side has to be paired with a fellowship that can cycle and draw a lot of cards which isn't hard to build in FOTR Block.

If anyone wants to post a full version of their own Ferny Frost Deck, go ahead. Mine is far from being perfect and I'd rather to see a complete deck (if you have enough time) than a few comments.

I just played vs Bill Ferny and I was surprised by the effect Secret Sentinels had at site 9.



Sorry but I had to post it, it was just funny.

EDIT: By the way, the game crashed.
