The End Comes (1R169) Wiki

General Strategy

The End Comes is a borderline useless Moria event which spots 5 Moria Orcs to force the ring-bearer to a skirmish. With the threat of Ulaire Enquea, Lieutenant of Morgul, most decks do not exceed 5 companions (And Defender bonuses are rare), forcing the Ring-Bearer to skirmish regardless. Even in this case, the Free Peoples player will still assign the weakest minion to skirmish Frodo. And with the number of stealth events, skirmish pumps, and special abilities available to Hobbits, The End Comes is even less viable.

The fringe benefits of this card come at sites bearing Saruman's Snows (or at the Cavern Entrance site), although the likelihood of 5 Moria Orcs, an Isengard minion, The End Comes, and Saruman's Snows makes this a costly and unlikely set-up. The Shadow player would almost always be better off focusing deck spots to additional minions.
