Uruk Trackers (Shadow only)
« on: January 09, 2010, 02:32:14 AM »
Well, this is my Uruk TRackers Deck. I know that StmtN actually is X-listed in TS cus' it's broken, but I want to keep it since I play casual only. So there comes my fun Deck which is randomly also TS legal (except for StmtN):

2x Desert Lord

3x Ugluk, SoS
3x Mauhur, PL
3x Uruk Follower
4x Uruk Searcher
3x Uruk Runner

4x StmtN
2x Ktn
2x Vengeance

1x Greed
1x What did you Discover?
1x The Palantir of Orthanc

4x Weary
2x Many Riddles

Well, I use Desert Lord against Greenleaf and Co, I think you can use him in most Decks anyway.
Ugluk and Mauhur are buth Staples whileyou play Uruk Trackers, ubt they are both unique so that I run just 3 of them.
Uruk Follower, Uruk Searcher and Uruk Runner are actually the best Trackers in such a Deck, they are all prety cheap have nice abilities.
As for Pumps, I don't need many more than 4x StmtN so I play Ktn and Vengeance twice each one.
Greed is also a Staple, same goes for The Palantir of Orthanc.
What did you Discover? is nice against double-moves, but if the opponent does not, it's quiet useless, so I play just 1 copy in this deck.
As for other Search cards, Weary's exertion ability is always useful combined with many riddles and a couple of fierce trackers, it can cause a lot of damage.

Greetz,

I don't like Uruk Follower. I prefer Uruk Hunter or Uruk Chaser. You don't really need Desert Lord. Grima, Wormtongue would be good with all the conditions you add.

Oh and... do not underestimate What did you discover?, if your opponent doesn't double move, it allows you to win with your fellowship.

I changed the Deck a little:

2x Desert Lord -2

 +2 Shotgun Enquea for more consistency
3x Ugluk, SoS
3x Mauhur, PL
3x Uruk Follower -1
4x Uruk Searcher
3x Uruk Runner
 +3 Uruk Chaser

4x StmtN
2x Ktn
2x Vengeance -2

1x Greed
1x What did you Discover?
1x The Palantir of Orthanc

4x Weary
2x Many Riddles

Well, I concentrated the deck more on swarm cus' Trackers Swarm actually is cruel, so Shotgun Enquea will destroy big fellowships, and cus' I'm playing Swarm, it actually fits in a little better then Greed.

I like Vengeance much more than Kill Them Now. In fact, four of those is probably better than 2 Kill Them Now and four Savagery To Match Their Numbers (which is not legal in Towers Standard).

I recommend four Uruk Regular as well to go with your "Swarm" theme since you have no cheap minions. And I would certainly go with Greed over Ulaire Enquea, Lieutenant of Morgul.

Drop the four Savagery To Match Their Numbers for four cheap minions. Like Uruk Plains Runner. I know that you want to use Savagery, but it is generally useless because all of your guys are fierce anyways.

Saruman, Servant of the Eye might be a fun surprise...

If you want to do a tracker swarm, you really should be using 4x Ugluk, 4x Uruk Plains Runner, 2-3x Ugluk's Sword, and about 16 cheap fierce uruk-hai. However, you probably don't want an all out swarm.

Yeh, I'm now running something between swarm and beatdown, but it works pretty well.

Finally, I came to a very strong Decklist, playing this several times and it worked really good:

Shadow (34):

4x Ugluk, SoS
2x Uruk Chaser
2x Mauhur, Pl
1x Uruk Captain
4x Uruk Runner
2x Uruk Plains Runner
2x Uruk Seeker
2x Grima, Wormtongue
4x Weary
2x Greed
2x LBC
2x Many Riddles
1x What did you Discover?
4x Vengeance

Now, it's even Towers Standard legal. What do you think?

It's been almost a month and you haven't gotten any responses regarding your revised efforts at a tracker deck.

Let me start by saying that this deck is much better than previous efforts. Personally, I would run three Ugluk, Servant of Saruman and three Mauhur, Patrol Leader as you have What Did You Discover? to possibly bring back a tracker you may need.

I know Lurtz's Battle Cry is a nice surprise, but would you be averse to having two extra minions in there if you are going for a 34 card deck? Or maybe cutting it down to 32 and removing those two Lurtz's Battle Cry. I think with all the Weary exertions, you won't have to worry too much about damage bonuses.

The only other condition I would consider running (and I personally probably would not but I know some people like it) is Worry. With the trackers winning extra skirmishes, this can really slow down a fellowship. Of course, [Isengard] has access to Greed so you probably wouldn't expect Ulaire Enquea, Lieutenant of Morgul in there.

What do you run this with, by the way?

As for freeps, I play a Standard Legal Elven Telepathy (as I play multiblock Format, making able to a.ex. have a FotR Block freeps and a movie Block Shadow), and I also often pair it with my Dauntless Hunter Deck.

Anyway, I changed it again and I'll post the newest update soon!

I was personally never a fan of Many Riddles.

And as the thread has already mentioned, I like Vengeance over Kill Them Now.

One brief suggestion is finding room for one or two Worry
Since Uruk trackers are fierce this card can really cause a lot of damage to a fellowship.
