Rangers and Uruk Site control
« on: November 15, 2011, 06:26:53 PM »
I'm not very good with deck design, so I'm really looking for feedback, as I get beat a lot.

Freeps - 32 cards

Frodo, RA
The One Ring, AtAR

1x Faramir CoG (start)
2x Aragorn RotN
3x Gondorian Ranger (start)
2x Ranger of Ithilien (start)

1x Aragorn's Bow
2x Faramir's Bow
1x Faramir's Cloak
2x Armor
3x Athelas
3x Sword of Gondor
2x Ring of Barahir
1x Rangers Sword, BoA
1x Sting BH
2x Mithril Coat

2x Ancient Roads
1x The Saga of Elendil
1x Boromir My Brother

1x Might of Numenor
1x PATHS

Shadow:

2x Advance Uruk Patrol
2x Orthanc Warrior
2x Uruk Assault Band
3x Uruk Stormer
2x Uruk Vanguard
2x Uruk-Hai Band
1x Uruk-Hai Horde
1x Uruk-Hai Patrol
1x Orthanc Champion
2x Saruman, SotE

3x Broad Bladed Sword
2x Attack on Helms Deep
3x Down to the Last Child
2x Worry
1x Burning of Westfold
2x Ferocity
1x We are the fighting Uruk-hai

East wall of Rohan
Uruk Camp
Westemnet Plains
White Rocks
Deep of Helm
Great Hall
Hornburg Causeway
Valley of Saruman
Orthanc Balcony

The shadow side is pretty self explanatory: Control some sites then kill comps. The freeps was kinda thrown together and I need the most help with that. I've tried this shadow with Rohan as well.

Thanks

You are only going to be able to start Faramir, Captain of Gondor and either Ranger of Ithilien or Gondorian Ranger, not both.

I don't see this deck being competitive without the Mablung and Ranger's Bow combination. That's a [Gondor] ranger classic.

You don't have any culture token, so the ring of barahir won't work at all. I would drop both ring of barahir and both the mithril coat for curse them x4, it is a very cheap way to survive against some nasty minions.

Rangers' problem is that they need many companions to work. That's why it's my deck of choice in TTT block, where there are only two decent crowd control cards - Southron Veterans, which fits mostly into southron archery decks that already have a lot of trouble against ring-bound companions, and Hornburg Causeway which doesn't work at all if your companions are ring-bound. But in TS people use Enquea and protecting against it is harder - you could try Ithilien Trap, but it takes time to load it and then you need to hope it won't get discarded, Defend it and Hope can help but won't solve the problem completely. And Greed will kill you completely as rangers have no condition removal.

My rangers deck (for TTT block playing, paired with Uruk Berserkers/Machines shadow)

Frodo, Tired Traveller
The One Ring, Answer to All Riddles

1x Faramir, Captain of Gondor (starting)
1x Mablung, Soldier of Gondor (starting)
3x Ranger of Ithilien
3x Gondorian Ranger

1x Faramir's Bow
1x Faramir's Cloak
1x Banner of Westernesse
3x Sword of Gondor
3x Ranger's Bow
1x Sting, Baggins Heirloom

4x Ancient Roads
1x Citadel of the Stars
1x Stone Tower
1x Forbidden Pool
1x Henneth Annun
1x Ruins of Osgiliath
1x Ithilien Trap
1x Cliffs of Emyn Muil

3x Defend it and Hope
2x War and Valor
2x Pathfinder (mostly to avoid Cavern Entrance)

Ok Thanks, what kind of change could you make to have a competitive deck in TS ?
According to face Moria Swarm or Nazguls or Dunlands.

making ring-bearers strong in TS is pretty much the same as in fellowship block. there are a few conditions, maybe toss in a bounder. i guess a couple copies of dagger strike could help out.

i suppose you could switch to a hobbit sword and pack a copy of PATHS for swarm protection. that way if you aren't facing orcs, you can ditch it, and frodo will be more protected with a sting or a hobbit sword. its kindof a toss up though.

I thought the Ring-Bearer with his 6 vitality and  Frying Pan could defend himself against Orcs, but I think you're right some PATHS could be good.

It's more against Dunland, Nazguls or Uruk Trackers I have questions on this deck :(.

right, thats why i'd go with a hobbit sword/paths/bounder hobbit sword is like the swiss army knife, it will provide protection against the biggest variety of minions. PATHS will really help against moria and dunland, and then bounder saves your biscuits against those uruks and nazzies that may find there way to him.

thats my theory anyways.
