Death to the Strawheads (4U8) Wiki

General Strategy

With the release of Towers Block, Ulaire Enquea, Lieutenant of Morgul was only legal in Towers Standard play and the door was opened for large fellowships such as Ents to appear on the scene without the concentrated counters from Fellowship Block. Each Shadow culture had a new way of discriminating against large fellowships, and Death to the Strawheads is Dunland's. Big fellowships generate enough extra twilight to cover the event's cost, and the strength bonus on an already high strength culture all but guarantees an overwhelm to an unsuspecting companion. Unlike most cards against big fellowships, this one functions as Morgul Hunter by being devastating against larger fellowships but remaining effective regardless. The higher twilight cost combined with Dunland's access to free events such as Burn Every Village and Dark Fury (each capable of giving +4 strength) makes Death to the Strawheads of limited usefulness against fellowships of 5 or fewer, and is often not used for these reasons.
