Ulaire Enquea, Lieutenant of Morgul (1U231) Wiki

General Strategy

Ulaire Enquea is one of the most well known minions of the TCG. Although not necessarily designed as such, he is treated as a splash minion (Can go in any deck) by most players, because he can use his ability against any large fellowship and isn't culturally enforced. Because fellowships containing 6 - 9 companions typically are very difficult to take down, many people will include a copy of Ulaire Enquea in their deck to help deal with this, as exerting him 3 times will usually kill a companion. If your opponent has exactly 6 companions, be sure to kill an exhausted companion only after using Enquea's ability as much as possible, since once you kill someone he will no longer be able to trigger. Since he can also trigger off five burdens, he is also a good choice for corruption decks, or even archery decks, as some players put archery wounds on the Ring-Bearer as burdens. Because of this minion, as well as several other counters to large fellowships, many players tend to stop playing companions once they've hit 5 companions. If you are going higher, it's usually best to go all out and have 9 companions, since otherwise characters like Enquea will just kill several off and bring you back to 5 companions. Other well-known counters to large fellowships are Greed; Ulaire Enquea, Sixth of the Nine Riders and The Number Must Be Few.

If Enquea is splashed and fighting a small fellowship, he will not be very useful, as he is expensive and your opponent will know that you cannot play any pumps on him. However, if you are short of minions or if there's a lot of twilight, he can still be useful, as he has good strength and is fierce.

Counters to Enquea's ability include Slaked Thirsts, Terrible and Evil, Merry's Sword, Stewards' Legacy, Ithilien Blade, Storied Homestead, A New Light and many forms of wound prevention, such as Intimidate, Hosts of the Last Alliance, Dwarven Bracers and Sapling of the White Tree.
