Arwen's Fate (1R93) Wiki

General Strategy

Character-specific skirmish event, Arwen's Fate offers the Free Peoples player the option of exerting Arwen for a +3 boost to Aragorn, or exerting Aragorn for a +3 boost to Arwen. Like The Choice of Luthien and Gift of the Evenstar from the Realms of the Elf Lords expansion, Arwen's Fate focuses on the connection between the two characters.

As two versions of Arwen and all versions of Aragorn are rangers in the Fellowship of the Ring block, Arwen's Fate is generally less productive than Swordsman of the Northern Kingdom. Additionally, the loss of either Arwen or Aragorn pigeon-holes a deck design and potentially leads to a clogged hand. The main advantage of using this card (As opposed to other exert pumps such as Battle Fury or Flashing Steel) is that it doesn't exert the character who is currently fighting, which makes it a safer option when dealing with Sauron wounding or Uruk-hai with damage bonuses. The Choice of Luthien allows you to shift wounds back and forth between Arwen and Aragorn, so that you can ensure that the one who will exert has the vitality to do so. Also, the card works on all versions of either character, including ones that are not rangers (Such as Arwen, Lady Undomiel or Aragorn, Heir of Elendil).

As a rare card in the Fellowship of the Ring set, Arwen's Fate is even less likely to see play in a sealed format, as it requires having two rare companions (Arwen, Daughter of Elrond and Aragorn, Ranger of the North) or a rare companion and the Aragorn starter deck.

Strengths and Weaknesses

Strong Versus...

  • Strength bonus works across two cultures; however, it does require an exertion

Weak Versus...

  • Mass wounding/archery decks
  • Hand clog, or a play situation without both Aragorn and Arwen in play
