Shadow help
« on: September 07, 2011, 10:38:29 PM »
I run this deck real-life and it's pretty powerful once its going, except the shadow, which I can never seem to get to work.  So I'm looking to build a new shadow.  I have trouble getting hard to find rares and R+'s so if you can avoid them please do.
Frodo, Son of Drogo - AtAR
1x Faramir, Captain of Gondor (starting)
1x Ranger of Ithilien (Starting)
2x Aragorn, Heir to the White City
2x Boromir, Defender of Minas Tirith

1x Boromir's Gauntlets
1x Faramir's Sword
1x Faramir's Bow
3x Gondorian Blade
1x Sting
1x Ranger's Sword, Blade of Aragorn
2x Athelas

1x Boromir, My Brother
1x Invigorated
1x The Tale of the Great Ring
4x NSttS

1x Bounder

2x Concealment
3x War and Valor
2x Swordsman of the Northern Kingdom
So I have the free side pretty much set other than a few cards.  I need a shadow that will cycle well while providing enough stopping power to keep my opponents from running.  The more really hard to get cards, the less likely it'll work.  I'm currenyl thinking an uruk-hai swarm but haven't managed to pull one off yet.

how about battleground uruks? there are really 2 options for this. you can run [Uruk] culture and splash in suffered much loss, uruk vanguard, and the like. this allows you to use brutality which is nasty at site 9.

the other option is running old school [isenguard] battlegrounds which still needs suffered much loss and vanguard, but you can also mix some other old school tricks in.

Ok I'll take a stab at it but in case it doesn't work (ie can't get my hands on Vanguard/ suffered much loss) any other suggestions?

[Moria] swarm. If you want to stop the double, have them hack their way through a ton of Goblins with 3-4 sitting around regroup phase.

And I always recommend it when someone says they want a Shadow that cycles.

Nazgul are always a good idea, you have lots of uncommon powerful cards!
