Saruman, Curunir (17S115) Wiki

General Strategy

Curunir fits snugly into the Uruk-hai Hunter deck archetype, although he struggles to out-perform Agent of the Dark Lord in formats where the latter is legal. Removing the hunter keyword from companions is very useful for minions that depend a lot on their hunter bonuses, such as Ugly Fellow, White Hand Warrior and White Hand Butcher. If removing the hunter keyword from a companion allows an Uruk-hai Hunter to win a skirmish, Saruman can then heal himself and repeat the process. These abilities also synergise very well with Fierce minions (which is almost every Uruk-hai Hunter), as the removal of hunter can last for two skirmishes instead of one. Curunir is weak vs decks without Hunters but he can still heal other minions such as White Hand Guard.

Unlike Agent of the Dark Lord, Curunir lacks the Lurker keyword and cannot easily buff himself. This can make him a bit fragile in the absence of Throne of Isengard or Throne of the Golden Hall.

He is the easiest version of Saruman to heal, and subsequently trigger Radagast Deceived.
