Dwarves - Initiative Corruption
« on: June 14, 2022, 11:24:50 AM »
This is a deck that I've had some fun with.

Ring-bearer: Gimli, Bearer of Grudges
Ring: The One Ring, The Binding Ring

Adventure deck:
Dunharrow Plateau
Rohirrim Camp
Hall of the Kings
Pelennor Prairie
Pelennor Flat
Minas Tirith Seventh Circle
Ruined Capitol
Northern Ithilien
Slag Mounds

Free Peoples Draw Deck:
1x Durin III, Dwarven Lord
1x Linnar, Dwarven Lord
2x Sam, Son of Hamfast
3x Elrond, Herald to Gil-galad
1x Axe of Erebor
1x Dwarven Armor
1x Dwarven Axe
3x Dwarven Bracers
1x Gimli's Battle Axe, Trusted Weapon
3x Hand Axe
1x Ring of Fury
1x Ring of Guile
1x Ring of Retribution
1x Vilya
4x Axe Strike
3x Blood Runs Chill
4x Honed
1x Greatest Kingdom of My People
4x Lord of Moria
2x Shoulder to Shoulder

Shadow Draw Deck:
1x Gollum, Stinker
4x Gorgoroth Stormer
2x Grishnakh, Orc Captain
4x Mordor Fighter
3x Orc Chaser
2x Orc Patrol
3x Orc Pursuer(2)
3x Orc Stalker
2x Úlairë Attëa, Wraith on Wings
2x Úlairë Toldëa, Wraith on Wings
1x Ithil Stone
4x Captured by the Ring
4x The Ring is Mine!
2x Evil-smelling Fens
1x Fat One Wants It
1x Heavy Burden

Bid 1 to go first. You'll be pulling Greatest Kingdom of My People with the plateau, which should keep you pretty safe from orc swarms. Other than that, it's simple dwarves with the addition of Elrond, HTGG and Shoulder to Shoulder to heal. The shadow is centered around using Mordor Fighter, Gorgoroth Stormer, and The Ring Is Mine! to corrupt your opponent. It also uses tricks like Stinker and Attea, WOW and Toldea, WOW that give it extra power. If they pack a ton of burden removal, the you can simply play beatdown with the initiative trackers.


Replace Heavy Burden with either Web or a third ESF. I never really use it, and it would be nice to throw out another minion.

Add the [Sauron] burden conditions to help out. This would require an uptick in cards, something it could probably handle with a few Delving.
