Large Fellowship control in King Block?
« on: April 10, 2022, 09:06:38 PM »
This should be easy, but can you help me list cards that help the Shadow player punish large fellowships in King Block? I'm seeing…

Ulaire Cantea, Faster than Winds
Ulaire Enquea, Faster than Winds
Orc Assault Band
Orc Savage
Southron Thief
Morgul Squealer

And of course sites 7.

Others?

For direct counters you also have Gorgoroth Swarm and Far Harad Mercenaries (not useless against SftF decks that include exactly 9 companions in the deck, but usually counterproductive the rest of the time). Hidden Even From Her gets a bonus. There's Mumak Commander too, which needs a big fellowship. Nazgul Scimitar in conjunction with Cantea FtW is sorta big fellowship hate though it's a pretty unimpressive combo all told.

I cast my net a bit wider than most though. Field of the Fallen and Houses of Lamentation are much more likely to get use against big fellowships. Super expensive cards are indirectly good Fellowship control as well. I have fun with Plotting in some decks, rarely worth affording normally (and probably the first card in a serious deck to get streamlined). Siegecraft is in a similar boat. I got Southron Conqueror to punish Ents once or twice before I cut it out. Morgul Detachment is a 1x in a few of my Nazgul decks since it's often not worth playing without a sturdy Nazgul. Haven't played King Block itself though, no idea whether there's any point in such indirect counters.

Gorgoroth Agitator is effective, too. Besiegers love seeing 6 companions in play with Gorgoroth Swarm

Good point! War Towers does the same, goes well with Southron Thief. Oh, and Easterling Pillager has some good moments against Ents in particular \:D/ I think that's the last?
