Looking at the prices of the current sealed booster boxes on eBay, my auctions of 81 rares (more than 2 booster boxes worth of rares) seem like a pretty, good bargain for you guys to grab some decent, cheap, bulk cards.

Still, there's not a single bid yet. Thinking about removing these auctions and putting everything up together in one lot, or maybe just keeping them for a few more years.

So if you're thinking about bidding on these and haven't yet, please do so soon, or they could be gone.

There's still a few listings more I was going to add with this round - another lot of 90 hunters block cards, a decent amount of non-english cards, a huge, bulk lot of lightly played/non-mint cards (maybe 1000s), massive C/U/S lots from sets 1-13 (might potentially build and sell 'poor-man's' decks - Have 100s of sites from sets 1-13), huge lot of Frodos/Sams/Rings...

I probably won't add any more auctions though until these ones get bids. Sorting everything takes time, as you know.

Anyways, please get bidding if you want more auctions listed, thanks :mrgreen:

Does anyone know if there somewhere you can access hi-res images of the culture logos (you know, like the leaf for Shire culture), preferably in a b&w format with clear lines? I had this idea to make some coffee mugs with the culture logos on them for some friends of mine who used to play the game.

And if they don't exist... well I might have to try and see what I can do on Inkscape. If I can get them to look right I'll share them here!
Archives of Minas Tirith / Re: Strategies that Never Took Off
« Last post by Phallen Cassidy on April 21, 2021, 02:02:47 PM »
What's your metric of "never took off"? I think there are enough Nazgul burden decks to say that it did, same for Isenorcs. I'm not sure I have a good metric myself though. I'd say a strategy never took off if:
  • Successful execution requires divine intervention
  • "Successful" execution doesn't put you any closer to winning
  • There are enough cards to make players to want to build a deck around it, but not enough to make that possible
I guess that's a pretty low bar?

Watcher in the Water (before Ages End, of course) is a textbook example of the first and last. A fine-tuned Watcher deck would struggle to make an impression on a starter deck, and then even if you do lasting damage you've got use something else to finish your opponent off. Even with Evil-smelling Fens and Foul Things, you can put something up for 3 sites tops before you're just out of cards.

Uruk Discard is a good example of the second because it plays subpar minions and doesn't actually hurt the FP until the last card in the deck is gone, whereas Sauron discard can hurt the FP by taking away an event and slow their roll by taking away the Shadow cards they were saving. This deck is at a clear disadvantage until the end of the site path, at which point it's only at a mild disadvantage. Some other ones that stand out to me are:
  • Rohan mill
  • Southron burdens
  • Southron site control
  • maybe Beasterlings (e.g., Easterling Ransacker)
  • Sauron weapons
  • Sauron Wraiths
  • Bouncing Smeagol
  • Nazgul initiative
Some of these are great strategies in sealed though, does that count for anything?

I don't know if stealth/search is a strategy per say, but it definitely got left behind. I think what does exist is undervalued by players too, Wariness and Relentless win games for me at site 5 all the time. On a related note, every card concerned with The One Ring comes to mind. Resistance Becomes Unbearable makes the Nazgul ones decent, but the Isengard and Sauron ones are just awkward. I think they were going for something interesting (there's danger to using The Ring) but the approach was all wrong and no card even references it after Fellowship block (except ARBs).
