Dagger Strike (1C102) Wiki

General Strategy

Generic yet powerful skirmish event, Dagger Strike is on a very short list of cards that apply damage bonuses to the Shire culture. While most damage bonuses in Gondor are associated with possessions and artifacts (with a few outliers in Movie Block, such as Still Sharp and Noble Leaders), Dagger Strike is an efficient way to apply extra wounds to minions.

While Dagger Strike costs 0 twilight to play, the event is not universal, as it is only playable on characters bearing a Hand Weapon. For Hobbits, this means a version of Sting, Hobbit Sword, or Frying Pan must remain in play, while Gondor Men have several options. That said, a copy of Aragorn bearing Ranger's Sword, Flaming Brand or Anduril, Flame of the West becomes a strength 12, damage +2 companion with just one Dagger Strike, enough to kill the majority of minions in Fellowship Block.

Dagger Strike is also a versatile event in solo-Hobbit decks as it is not a stealth event, which can be cancelled or prevented by cards like Wariness, Relentless, or Seeking It Always.

Strengths and Weaknesses
