[minion resource; vs. hero] Big Trolls in Gondor

Post by Zarathustra » Wed Sep 21, 2005 2:03 am

This is the other side of the Smoke coin: big trolls going where they oughtn't.  Try it out!  You may end up liking it.

Start:

Lieutenant of Morgul
Lieutenant of Dol Guldur
Tros Hesnef

Whispers of Rings
Orders from Lugburz

In Deck:

3 Dwar the Ringwraith
1 Lieutenant of Angmar
1 The Grimburgoth
1 Taladhan

Resources:

3 Bright Gold Ring
1 Palantir of Minas Tirith
1 Scroll of Isildur

1 Regiment of Black Crows

1 Orcs of Dol Guldur

3 Smoke on the Wind

2 I'll Report You
3 Swift Strokes
3 Bold Thrust

2 Test of Fire
2 Secrets of Their Forging
3 Dark Tryst
2 Voices of Malice
2 Above the Abyss
1 Bade to Rule

Key Sideboard Cards:

2 The Oracle's Ring
2 The Reviled Ring
3 Trifling Ring

Play Tips:

Pelargir, Dol Amroth, Edoras for Rings.  Minas Tirith for Palantir.  Any three of the above for Smoke.  Tolfalas for Scroll.  Amon Hen for Secrets.  Either of the above for Regiment.  Get one Lt under the other with the help of the rings.  That allows the third Lt and friends to come out to play.  Dwar either helps to fight or sideboards or Voices.  This plays best vs. heroes because of the centrality of Above the Abyss.

MP Breakdown:

Character: 9-12
Item: ~10
Ally: 1
Faction: 1
Misc: 9
Total: ~30-33
