[Hazards vs Generic] Orc Lieutenants

Post by Bandobras Took » Wed Aug 16, 2006 5:50 am

A rather generic hazard deck that has a hard time against dwarves and elven warrior/rangers. :)

3 x An Unexpected Outpost
3 x Doubled Vigilance
3 x Hobgoblins
3 x Orc-lieutenant
3 x Orc-warriors
3 x Uruk-lieutenant
3 x Minions Stir
3 x Two or Three Tribes Present
3 x Redoubled Force
3 x Doors of Night

Use Two or Three Tribes to play lots of orcs.  Put Lieutenants on-guard beneath Doubled Vigilance.  vs. Minion, you creatures are keyeable to :R: or can act as some fairly good detainment.

This deck definitely needs Revealed to All Watchers, which is a killer when combined with Two or Three Tribes Present. &nbsp;("Hold on, I need some more orcs." &nbsp;<draws 6 cards> &nbsp;"There we go...." <death recommences>)

-1 hobgoblins
-1 orc warriors
-1 redoubled force (this isn't really necessary as once they see minions stir +orcs they ain't gonna try to go in where orcs live anyway)
-1 two or three tribes (two is enough)

+2 orc warband (they hit everywhere and can get nasty after other weak orcs, too)
+1 revealed to all watchers (more orcs)
+1 many sorrows befall (dark quarrels or conceal-NOT!)

Combine with hero resource that uses forewarned is forearmed to make big orcs played as 2nd aa in underdeeps uncancellable.

Bang with orcs, unexpected outpost the big guys, &nbsp;THEN Revealed to all...mwah, ha, ha.

haz play vs. thorin, beorn, oin and bofur=doors+minions stir+2 or 3 tribes of orcs + orc warriors (5s9-crushed by heroes)+ uruk lt. (3s14=not so easily crushed) + orc lt. (3s16=pile on the pain :twisted: ). &nbsp;Hmm, and with one left on the haz limit you can play Revealed to all or Many sorrows. &nbsp;With a bit of patience, don't be too worried about elf twins or thorin/dain...

BTW, you will need twilights on the resource side to protect the doors or you will use too much haz limit playing doors.

I have played similar haz where after the first turn, my opponent literally had no characters left.

I'd drop all of the redoubled forces. &nbsp;As Charles says nobody is going to go to a orc/troll aa site anyway once they see your strategy. &nbsp;Instead add:

Revealed to All Watchers
Mouth of Sauron
Many Sorrows Befall

Or add 2 Little Snufflers instead of the MSB and maybe a hobgoblin

Revealed to All Watchers is unique.

Edit: You're quite right, my bad.

I don't think anybody suggested adding more than one . . .
