[Fallen Alatar Resource] The Bounty of Earcaraxe

Post by Zarathustra » Tue Oct 04, 2005 2:04 am

Similar to the Bounty of Framsburg, this deck relies on squatting at a single hoard-containing site all game to get lots of safe points.  It is, however, a bit more dangerous.  However, the payoff is higher.  So it goes in MECCG usually....

Start:

Surion / Thrall / Squire
Faramir / Paste
Threlin / Paste
Gulla

In Deck:

3 Alatar
1 Fram Framson
1 Beretar
1 Dasakun
1 Raisha

Resources:

2 We Have Come to Kill
1 A Chance Meeting
2 Dark Tryst
2 Longbottom Leaf
2 Weigh All Things to a Nicety
2 Smoke Rings
2 Voices of Malice
2 Crept Along Cleverly
2 Not at Home

1 Join the Hunt
1 Great Patron
1 Wizard's Trove
1 Wizard's Myrmidon
1 Gatherer of Loyalties
3 Double Dealing

1 Sapling of the White Tree
1 Durin's Axe
1 Glamdring
2 Bounty of the Hoard

Sideboard:

1 Mischief
1 Safe From the Shadow
1 The White Tree
1 Tom Bombadil

1 Glamdring

2 Hoard Well Searched

1 Earcaraxe Roused
1 Regiment of Black Crows

Play Tips:

Just go to Isle of the Ulund and squat.  Play a major item every turn starting turn 2.  Get the Regiment and Earcaraxe after you Double Dealing the site.  WHCtK and ACM for some more characters.  Last turn: make a run for Old Forest for Tom/Mischief/White Tree = 10 MPs.

MP Breakdown:

Character: 13
Item: 7-9

BTW, a Snowstorm / Shadow of Mordor hazard strategy goes beautifully with this deck.

you should replace "Glamdring" in the sideboard with "High Helm" or "Sable Shield"...AFAIK "Glamdring" is unique >-)

You may also include a Thror's Map. It would fit very well in this deck.
