Uruk Messenger (1C149) Wiki

General Strategy

Uruk Messenger is the only minion ever to receive a bonus from weather conditions. While possessing relatively low strength, Uruk Messenger does carry the normal damage +1 bonus given to all of the Uruk-Hai in fellowship block (except Uruk Spy.) In addition to this, if you can spot a weather condition (of which there are 5, Saruman's Chill, Saruman's Frost, Saruman's Snows, Wizard Storm, and Urgency) this minion becomes a base 9 strength which is very high for a minion that only costs 2. Unfortunately for Uruk Messenger, all of the weather conditions (except Urgency) must exert an Isengard minion to be played; something Uruk Messenger can't do because he only has 1 vitality. As a result, while playing fellowship block, this minion must be accompanied by another Isengard minion in order to receive the bonus from his game text. This minion is also susceptible to archery fire, although Saruman, Keeper of Isengard or a Broad Bladed Sword will solve that problem, and having a few other healthy Uruks in play (Such as Uruk-hai Raiding Party* or Troop of Uruk-hai) can also help mitigate this weakness.
