Border Defenses (1C32) Wiki

General Strategy

One of the basic Elven pumps. Border Defenses is inherently flawed because it provides a big strength bonus against enemies who tend to have low strengths in the first place. As such, Defiance is almost always used in preference, as Nazgul typically have high strengths. However, if for whatever reason you do not have Defiance, then having a basic Elven pump doesn't hurt. This card is also particularly effective against Lurtz, who is the only Fellowship Block archer that it also an extremely dangerous minion.

In later sets, there are some strong archer minions, such as Southron Archer Legion and Orc Archer Troop, but they are rarely used.
