Bitter Hatred (1U164) Wiki

General Strategy

Bitter Hatred is a fairly effective counter to Elves. Since it deals a wound of the shadow player's choosing, it can be used to snipe companions or allies that only have one vitality remaining. This can be useful against Free Peoples archery effects that require exertions, such as Greenleaf or The Splendor of Their Banners. The most common counter to it, Hosts of the Last Alliance, is vulnerable to Goblin Scrabbler.

The big issue with this card, is that it serves no purpose against decks without any Elves, so it must be picked carefully depending on the current meta.

Set 4 introduces the Raider Archers (Desert Lord, Elite Archer and Southron Bowman), which can exert their targets during the archery phase. This can be combined with Bitter Hatred to bring down Elven companions that were not even originally wounded, such as Dauntless Hunter.

It has potential in pure Moria archery decks and dual Moria-Sauron wounding decks. In Towers Standard, it can be used in dual Moria-Raider wounding decks. It is similar to Hate and Malice.
