Core Set #4. Tactics.


So, it's taken me a couple of days to figure out what to say about Gimli, other than he's pretty much been done before. He's basically been played out. Everyone knows how to slap Citadel Plate on him, give him some damage, and let him swing for a ton of attack. Perhaps that's why his popularity has waned over the years, especially when there is a fairly fresh and still shiny Ally Gimli with a more interesting ability. So, I decided to challenge myself to make the Son of Glóin a little more interesting by trying to see just how much attack power I can get core set Gimli to swing for in one hit! Can I do 20? 30?! Dare I shoot for 40?!?! Naturally, I went and built a "Make Gimli Ridiculous" deck around this idea, which can be seen at I use a ton of non-restricted attachments on Gimli, so after putting 2 Citadel Plates on him, everything else can somehow still fit. So, between maxing out on hit points and taking on damage, putting resources on Keeping CountCount and making judicious use of Support of the Eagles, soon our favorite dwarf can be back to his old self again, and actually, better than ever. My challenge to you, then, is for you to do the same and see just how ridiculous you can make Gimli with the current card pool!!!
