[minion; resources] Minion Dwarves

Post by Ûvatha » Wed Dec 28, 2005 4:41 am

What do you guys think of a minnion dwarf company searching rings and wolves allies in the northwest (arthedain, rudahur, etc) and then getting the Dwarven Rings with Secrets of their forging ?? It's a idea i've been giving some though for a long time and i just put a deck together, and so far played 4 games with it and won 3 of them.


Starting company:

Dror (Open to the summons)
Fori the beardless (Open to the summons)
Gulla
Náin
Broín
Odoacer


Characters

2x Ren the Ringwraith
Golhodros
Pon Ora Pon
Calendal
The Mouth
Hador


Resources:

1x High Helm
1x Sable Shield
3x The least of gols rings
1x Gold ring that Sauron's fancies
1x Gleaming Gold ring
1x Dwarven Ring of Durin's Tribe
1x Dwarven Ring of Dwalin's Tribe
1x Dwarven Ring of Barin's Tribe
1x Dwarven Ring of Bávor's Tribe
3x War-Wolf
1x The Warg King
1x War-Warg
1x Creature of an older world
1x Dunledings
1x Hillmen

3x Secrets of their forging  
3x Not Slay Needlessly
3x Crept Along Cleverly
2x Voices of Malice
2x Weigh All Things to a Nicety
2x Bade to Rule


Key Sideboard cards:

2x War-Warg
1x Helm of Fear
1x Beornings
1x Orcs of Gundabad
2x A Nice Place to Hide
2x Ruse

Get the extra chancelers just in case your opponent is playing heavy on creatures.
If your opponent is playing corruption heavy then just bring back the Voices with Weigh All Things to a Nicety or tap Ren.

The characters are all sages in case Náin dies, and i bring them into play before Ren comes in of course.
Ren comes in Barad dur and get the Creature and then taps to get the Helm of Fear.

I tipicaly end up with the High Helm, the Shield and about 3 Dwarven Rings, and that gives me enough DI to control most characters in the company and get the factions and enough GI to bring some more characters into play.

All in all i think it's a fun deck, that has some flaws, but that can surprise your opponent since it's not the tipical minnion deck.

I would apreciate some feedback on the deck.

Thanks

Moved this from general to decks

Looks good to me. Indeed an original strategy that should be fun and reasonably competitive to play.

I guess my big question is why you only have two Ringwraiths in it.

I just prefer to get some characters first and then play Ren. But the deck could have 3 Ringwraiths as well.

I'd suggest using Whispers of Rings and moving the Dwarven Rings to the sideboard.  This would give you some space for helper cards like Dark Tryst.

I don't use it for 2 reasons: I don't have it :wink:  and i really like the starting company with the 2 dwarf agents.

But i could try it that way, it would make the deck a lot faster.
