[Minion (balrog), resources] Descent Through Fire

Post by Zarathustra » Thu Mar 16, 2006 6:48 am

Here's yer standard Descent Through Fire / Hog + Buth & Bolg in the Deeps.

Start:

Doeth

Bolg
Buthrakaur

Orders
Gangways

In Deck:

3 The Balrog

Resources:

1 Ancient Black Axe
3 Iron Shield of Old

1 Nasty Slimy Thing
1 Stinker

1 Orcs of Moria
1 Orcs of Gundabad

2 Descent Through Fire

2 Flame of Udun
1 Ancient Secrets
1 Angband Revisited
3 Dark Tryst
1 Threats
2 Voices of Malice
1 We Have Come to Kill
2 Weigh All Things to a Nicety

2 Crept Along Cleverly
3 Great Fissure
2 Orc Quarrels

Hazards:

DoN hazards are good.  But Nazgul is probably the way to go, as a protection for Der Hog.

Key Sideboard Cards:

Terror Heralds Doom
Scourge of Fire (+ Prone to Violence vs minions)
3 Hill Troll
3 Orc Tracker

Play Tips:

Doeth stays behind for VoM and Stinker (and even the Orcs of Moria if you get Threats + 1 or 2 Terror Heralds Doom).

The Balrog goes straight for Mordor, descending through fire as rapidly as possible for 6 MPs and great all-around boosts.

Bolg and Buth putz around with Gangways picking up items and the slimy thingy.  They also get one or both of the factions.

WATCH OUT FOR TROLL PURSE AT THE UNDER-LEAS!

MP Breakdown:

Character: 10
Item: 10-12
Ally: 3
Faction: 6
Misc: 6
Total: 35-37
