Rainbow Wounding / Twilight Corruption
« on: April 20, 2020, 08:51:49 AM »
The original variation of this deck was just Gimli, Legolas, and Eowyn. It worked remarkably well against certain things, but imploded horribly when faced with an Easterling Polearm or a Shelob, Her Ladyship. I added Eowyn's Shield and a Citadel to help deal with the Polearm, but the deck is still too focussed on wounding. I actually think that a Gimly, Eowyn, Legolas variant is still the better way to go, but I'm still unsure how to deal with Shelob.

The shadow side is the reason this deck still has a positive winning percentage. I don't know why everyone expects Return to Its Master instead of Wraith-world, but I feel like the latter often surprises people. As the game progresses, I can use Skulkers to cycle Resistance Becomes Unbearable, which often leads to an 8 or 9 burden turn late-game.

However, because Wraith-World is a skirmish card, I've lost several games where the skirmish gets cancelled before I can play it, which is really irritating.

I've considered options like Gollum, DaD, or Morgul Brute, but they can also increase the potential for terrible draws. Any advice is appreciated.
