1st Tier deck gondor - evil men archery
« on: May 14, 2013, 05:55:39 PM »
greetings , my nick at gemp is pizza_fan and this is one of my favourite decks .

Ringbearer : Boromir bearer of council with The one ring ring of rings

Starting :
isildur sword-bearer ( healing machine )
Denethor Lord of Minas Tirith ( searching dude / expendable after site 3 )

free pps : 45
companions :
Aragorn Thorongil ( no comments )
Faramir Son of Denethor ( hi ninja gollum )
Elendil the Tall ( let's liberate those sites shall we ?  ps : 3ple move in case of emergency)
Ranger of Westernesse x 2( lets play our own sites , expendable )
Gandalf Returned x3 ( brings shadowfax , target for nertea , rare replenish our tokens)

artifacts :
Sappling of the white tree x3
Anduril Flame of the west x3 ( we want to  play/replace/replay site 3 and 6 )
scroll of isildur
throne of minas tirith ( replenish our tokens / good vs corsairs,web,grond etc )
narsil x2

possessions :
ithilien blade x2 ( good at the start , exert giver )
armor ( gorn likes )
blade of gondor ( good vs swarm + uruk hunters )
coat of mail ( boromir likes it )
horn of boromir ( hi saruman follower )
shield of the white tree ( our opponent play nothing ?  lets use this and move , hi pippin wombas )
shadowfax ( if comes before gandalf put at discard pile /burden removal machine)

conditions :

Noble leaders x2 ( tokens ! )
heirs of gondor ( more tokens ! )
garrison of osgiliath ( even more tokens ! )
houses of healing ( tokens everywhere ! )
kings' legacy x2 ( gorn likes , isildur likes more , rarely used with elendil )
spirit of the white tree ( hi ninja gollum , isildur usually takes it)
stewards' legacy ( excellent trick to our arsenal vs enquea toto,mouth of sauron etc )

followers

pallando ( + exert giver )
elendil's army ( exert giver )

events

banners blowing x3 ( excellent pumps )
last throw ( they wont even expect that )
roll of thunder ( hi grond )
deep in thought ( we <3 it )


Shadow  :45

minions
archer of harad x 4 ( pew pew )
southron murderer x 4 ( filler pew pew )
mumak commander giant among the swertings x3 ( he likes pavice )
gothmog morgul leader x4 ( 2 cost / wound , yes please )
mumak rider x 4 (key possession removal )
ferocious haradrim x2 ( doesnt work often but funny )
the mouth of sauron messenger of mordor x4 ( searching engine )
voice of the desert
ulaire enquea lieutenant of mordor ( cause they will put burdens )

events :
howdah x4 ( dah ! )
elevated fire ( a surprice )
precision targeting ( a second surprice )
lying counsel ( hi durin )

conditions :

pursuing horde x2 ( usually first digged with mouth , likes lying counsel)
rapid reload x3 (cause we will use every token out there )


possessions :

pavise x3
long battle bow

sites :

anduin banks ( if they do the mistake to drop a lot of companions ... , if you are behind drop it at site 6 or 3 and afterwards replace it with anduril )
doorway to doom ( finishing move or same as above with site 3-6)
neekerbreekers' bog
steward's tomb ( use wisely )
caras galadhon ( anti-swarm , often drops at site 4 cause we may give opponent a lot of cards)
mithlond
mount doom
the prancing pony ( gorn likes it , faramir too and those ranger victims )
imladris ( anti-burden )




First of all this deck is a top-level one,it  has answers vs almost everything .It can kill the majority of fellowships and/or finish with the gondor guys.
There is not a specific strategy for this deck , it maneuvers and adapts according to your opponent deck/playstyle.

fellowship :
The fellowship 's backbone is the artifacts so it is not gimped from a massive possession or condition removal .
It can remove shadow possessions/conditions/burdens .
It can triple and can liberate sites.
Strong vs swarming decks .
It can manipulate the key - sites . ( 3-6 with gorn ) (4-7 with denethor draw a victim ranger )
It has 2 beast- companions ( gorn - isildur ) , strong ringbearer and has expendable victims .
It can search the key cards that are missing with denethor .
Every card in the fellowship has it's own reason why it is here .Every card has good or excellent synergy with others or gives solutions at a variety of situations.

Bid usually 0 , if you go first, play the site to bring aragorn . If not, drop it at site 2 .
Really carefull with mountain-troll / demoralized decks . Do not try to run with those, let the shadow do the job

shadow :
pew - pew - pew .

With this deck i have atm : 78 wins 8 losses at gemp and as i remember the majority of those losses are from silly mistakes( and real life things that made me concede).
This deck needs a bit of experience in order to play it .The site manipulation is one key element in the expanded format and try to use it to your advantage.

feel free to ask my anything you want .

ps : sorry for my bad english

Ah, once in every 5 years...............whatchu got?  How can you use the Horn of Boromir, you have no allies.  Here's to playing the real game, with cards not with Gemp= not the same game

I've seen decks like this on gemp bfore, they're usually pretty solid. Those evil men archery shadows can do a lot of damage, rapid reload is a must, and lying counsel is a surprise I don't see many people use often. I like to try to fit at least one or two of those in if possible because they can be absolutely devastating at the right moment. A couple of vengeful wild man and stampeding savage wouldn't hurt, but you might find that to bloat the deck depending on how fast this all cycles.

P.S. @ Tuchalla, I think he meant the other horn of boromir, the great horn,  the one that gives an extra resistance and discards followers.

Ever thought of using a +2 vitality ring instead? Ring of Doom or Answer to all riddles

Also, Aragorn's ring would be a nice addition. Ring of Barahir
