Orthanc Assassin (1R131) Wiki

General Strategy

The only Isengard Archer minion in Fellowship Block (besides Lurtz, Servant of Isengard), Orthanc Assassin is among the stronger minions in the format with a base strength of 10. With the damage bonus shared with most Uruk-Hai and a stout 3 vitality, Orthanc Assassin is also a good choice for exertions from cards like Cloud of Arrows, Saruman's Power, Beyond the Height of Men, or weather conditions.

A solid addition to Isengard archery shadows in Towers Standard and beyond, Orthanc Assassin is somewhat limited by his uniqueness, though he can be replayed by Uruk Captain or even Evil-Smelling Fens if appropriate. His twilight cost can be reduced by Ranged Commander in the Towers Standard format.
