Gandalf Powerful Guide (Expanded) deck idea
« on: September 02, 2018, 06:49:42 PM »
I'm working on an deck idea (free peoples only so far) with Gandalf Powerful Guide.

Starting fellowship would be Gandalf Leader of Men, Frodo and Sam. The plan is to use saved from the fire to get Gandlaf Powerful Guide out then go from there.

Any ideas using this set up?

Edit for clarification: I plan on using saved from the fire to put Gandalf Leader of men in the dead pile, get Gandlaf Powerful guide, send back and one additional Gandalf card. Any suggestions are greatly appreciated! Thanks!

Maybe a wounding based deck using some variant of Merry and Pippin (definitely WoBAS and maybe start them instead of Sam) using 4x Shadowplay and 4x Unheeded, along with Terrible and Evil which is just nasty with that Gandalf.

Chuck in some Paths and then use the Shire Countryside and NFFatRoD combo to pull off the burdens and heal Gandys exertions in skirmish if anything has survived.

Only at 2 cultures so can look at putting in an Eowyn (would enable Merry's Sword and give another Unheeded trigger) or maybe Aragorn with a bow and some Gondor Bowmen?

So it is - usually play Movie and there's so much crossover on X list I totally forgot.

If you're using WoBaS and/or Make Haste then 4x Home and Hearth should clear up the burdens (and your Shadowplay exertions).
