General Strategy

This card is solely anti-orc, but it is fairly good at what it does, and with orcs making up three of the five major shadow sides in Fellowship Block, it can prove to be worth its weight, particularly if your deck suffers with Moria swarm or another orc strategy. The versatility of the wound distribution allows you to cripple a orc with a powerful ability (Orc Overseer, Isengard Smith, Tower Assassin) kill a powerful 2 vitality orc (Archer Commander, Ancient Chieftain, Orc War Band, Orc Butcher* or Guard Commander) or kill 2 Moria orcs with 1 vitality each to prevent a swarm. Be wary of any wound prevention the shadow player may have when using this card (Isengard Shaman, Goblin Armory).

Strengths and Weaknesses

Weak Versus...

  • Wounding decks (Requires an exertion)
  • Hate (Weakens your own companion prior to Hate being played)
  • Shadow decks with no Orcs (Uruks, Nazgul), or with few Orcs with little importance after being played (like Morgul Skulker)
