Multi-culture MESS with Nazgul
« on: November 27, 2020, 06:27:39 AM »
Here is my first attempt at a deck including Gimli, Arwen, Gandalf, and Aragorn. The few games I have done with it have gone okay, so I was wondering if anyone had any idea how to better it. Oh, and, fair warning, this deck is massive. (Somewhere around 47-49)

You are playing two sides that will clog your hand, so trimming is a must. You have a lot of copies of Companions without reliable ways to him them, and then cards that USE those companions. I'd start by looking here.

True, true. I'm starting with trimming out Arwen, and replacing Dwarven Bracers and Hand Axe's with Endurance of Dwarves, as EoD is a potential two strength on Gimli, and is useful if I draw a second, while drawing another bracer while I have yet to get my Hand Axe doesn't help at all.

Multi-culture Mess (and Nazgul) V2:
Ring-bearer: Frodo, Old Bilbo's Heir
Ring: The One Ring, The Ruling Ring****

Adventure deck:
The Prancing Pony*
Weathertop
Ford of Bruinen
Moria Stairway*
The Bridge of Khazad-dum*
Valley of the Silverlode*
Silverlode Banks
Gates of Argonath
Emyn Muil*

Free Peoples Draw Deck:
1x Gimli, Son of Gloin (Starting)
1x Sam, SoH (Starting)
2x Gandalf, Friend of the Shirefolk
3x Aragorn, Heir to the White City
2x Boromir, Defender of Minas Tirith*

2x Bounder
2x Elrond, Herald to Gil-galad
1x Galadriel, Lady of Light
1x Orophin, Lorien Bowman
1x Rumil, Elven Protector

3x Endurance of Dwarves
2x Gimli's Battle Axe
3x Gandalf's Cart
2x Glamdring
2x Wizard Staff*
2x Blade of Gondor
3x Flaming Brand
2x Ranger's Sword
2x Hobbit Sword****

3x The Last Alliance of Elves and Men
2x Hobbit Stealth

Shadow Draw Deck:
4x Bill Ferny, Swarthy Sneering Fellow
4x The Witch-king, Lord of Angmar
3x Ulaire Lemenya, Lieutenant of Morgul
3x Ulaire Cantea, Lieutenant of Dol Guldur

4x Ulaire Enquea, Ringwraith in Twilight
3x Ulaire Attea, The Easterling
3x Ulaire Nelya, Ringwraith in Twilight

4x Nazgul Sword
3x The Pale Blade


3x All Veils Removed
4x Threshold of Shadow
4x Morgul Gates

The idea is too bid high to go first, then remove burdens with SoH. Endurance of Dwarves keep Gimli alive, protecting him from Blade Tip's until I can get HtGG out, but most importantly, allowing him to use his built exert pump more often.
I will continue working on this deck as time goes on.
