Dwarven Beatdown-Cycling/ Orc Swarm
« on: February 20, 2009, 11:30:10 PM »
here's one to help boost the war of the ring block list =)

38/38

Ring and Ring-Bearer

Frodo, Protected by Many
The One Ring, Ring of Rings

Free Peoples

Companions
Gimli, Lord of the Glittering Caves (starting)
2x Thrarin, Smith of Erebor
3x Dwarven Warrior (1 starting)

Possessions
2x Gimli's Battle Axe, Vicious Weapon
4x Axe of Khazad-Dum
4x Dwarven Bracers
Hobbit Sword

Events
2x Battle to the Last
4x Durability
2x Honoring his Kinsfolk
2x No Pauses, No Spills
2x Sharp Defense
2x Well Equipped

Conditions
2x A Clamour of Many Voices
2x Dwarven Skill
2x Mountain Homestead
Sudden Fury

Shadow

Minions
3x Denizen of Khazad-Dum
4x Denizen of Moria
4x Orc Plains Runner
1x Orkish Smith
4x Persistent Orc
4x Scurrying Goblin
4x Skulking Goblin
2x Enraged Southron

Conditions
4x Goblin Hordes
4x Unforgiving Depths
4x Forced March

Sites
(0) Emyn Muil
(1) Cavern Entrance
(1) Slopes of Orodruin
(2) Barazinbar
(2) Chamber of Mazarbul
(2) Moria Stairway
(3) Starkhorn
(3) Caves of Aglarond
(3) Moria Guardroom

The freeps is a dwarven beat down with a twist, it relies more on events then possessions for strength, it is a big deck but A Clamour of Many Voices and No Pauses, No Spills gives you some cycling, Hobbit sword and Sudden fury are there to help keep frodo alive. the shadow is a basic orc swarm, Forced March the opponent and Enraged southron gives you more sites to do it, goblin hordes gets minions from underground sites, unforgiving depths and orc plains runner play underground sites and skulking goblin makes site underground.

Actually block formates do have X- / R-list. Check Orkish Smith in the database.

Block formats follow the Open X-list/R-list.

Like #$&*@! they do. I don't recall Frying Pan ever being banned in Fellowship Block, and it was banned from Open for quite some time, don't know if it still is, though.

As far as I know, open doesn't have a banned list, just a restricted list.

What about 1 or 2 Hand Axes?
One Ring to rule them all.
One Ring to find them.
One Ring to bring them all,
And in the darkness, bind them.

Hand Axe is from the Fellowship Block...  This is War of the Ring Block.  Decipher was looney and didn't reprint it along with Dwarven Bracers, which is far less useful.
Do not take dragons lightly.  They are heavier than you think.

How often does the Swarm succeed in getting people killed, I wonder? The Orcs all seem low strength. :S

It's VERY successful.  I play a deck very close to this, and it's insane.  Goblin Hordes (if you have them all out) gives you four extra minions each turn.  Grab a couple Scurrying Goblins or Denizen of Moria and you're all set to go.  Not to mention that chances are you'll draw a couple Persistent Orcs guaranteed as well.

Lego, just a few thoughts.  I find Orkish Worker extremely good in this deck: good cost, good strength, and you'll often at least get two of the twilight back.  I would also try to add some Spurred to Battle - they're very effective I find.  They often save me when I need just ONE more minion out.

Other than that, the deck looks great.  WotR Block Freep sides are always tough to build.

Maybe just a detail, but why don't you use Sting, WoH instead of Hobbit Sword? I'dd also add maybe another Sudden Fury and two addtional No Pauses, No Spills.
