So this is my first deck I post here! I've been using this very helpful forum to help be build real-life decks. I've been collecting cards for the past year and a half. I've been playing with friends and I've quite enjoyed it! I'm only play the game with real, physical cards, and sometimes I need to get creative to build balanced decks (for example I only a 3 copies on Servant of the Secret Fire, so once they're in a deck, to bad for the other ones  Sad )

As I said, this deck, along with all the others I'll post here, are directly inspired by posts I found here. The Freeps are a ''All-Star Rangers Team'' feat. Legolas and Sam. The strategy is to keep minions roaming until all my bows, swords and Gondor Bowmen are out. The combo Second level - What are They is neat and clean to get rid of minions.

Is No Mere Ranger a useful card? I rarely see it in any decks, but it seems o good pump, especially if Frodo is in trouble. I only have one copy of Gondor Bowmen. Is there any cards I should include/replace?

For Shadow, it's your very familiar Twilight Nazgul. I've put all copies I have in. Ulaire Nertea, MoDG is there to help me them bring back if necessary. Since I only have 2 copies of It Wants to be Found, the goal is to get the Ring-Bearer to wear the Ring. If he does (with Resistance becomes Unbearable), he'll be hit with Wraith-World and/or Return to Its Master. If the game is not over by then, Ulaire Enquea, LoM should seal the deal

Tell me what do you think! I'll try to make the modifications you suggest, if possible. Thanks a lot!

So, you've posted in Towers Standard, but Second Level is from set 7 and your site path is from Fellowship block. Of course whatever you do with your play group is fine...but the deck itself would be ineligible for the format.

No Mere Ranger is a tough card, because your opponent is going to know to target Aragorn. He's one of the big guns...he's strong, he heals your other guys. If the opponent is using direct wounding, Aragorn might not have the vitality to use No Mere Ranger. It almost feels like Dagger Strike would be more helpful if you want something that applies to both Frodo and your Gondor folks.

Keep in mind that A Ranger's Versatility was errata'd, so it is nowhere near as powerful. With all your exertions, you might consider Might of Numenor.

Just a few thoughts on your free peoples.

Indeed, Second Level is not TS standard... Well, it doesn't bother me, but I'll be more careful in the future ;)

Thanks for the advice on No Mere Ranger. I think I'll replace it with a copy of Dagger Strike. I was wondering if Pathfinder was useful, or if I should replace it with another copy of Swordsman of the Northern Kingdom ?
