Troop of Uruk-hai (1R143) Wiki

General Strategy

At first, Troop of Uruk-hai looks like a fairly average Uruk, but it is actually one of the strongest Isengard minions in Fellowship Block. Its ability to ignore weapon bonuses makes it very hard for companions to have a higher base strength than it (Gandalf, FotS and The Last Alliance of Elves and Men being the main counters), which forces players to use events in order to beat it. However, with cards like Saruman's Ambition, Savagery to Match Their Numbers, Bred for Battle and Uruk-hai Sword, the Troop has a good range of support that can assist it if the Free Peoples player has an event heavy deck. Its other advantages include a large pool of vitality, making it difficult to kill with cards like Legolas, Greenleaf or Aragorn's Bow, and non-uniqueness, which differentiates it from the other large uruks in Fellowship Block (Lurtz, Servant of Isengard; Orthanc Berserker; Orthanc Assassin) and ensures its playability if multiple copies are drawn. Troop of Uruk-hai loses a little of its potency after Fellowship Block, as many non-weapon strength boosts become available to the Free Peoples player and other large uruks are released.
