This is a thematic deck built for an ongoing series on my blog, Darkling Door.

Theme: Na'asiyah, mercenary for hire

Played Against: Nightmare Peril in Pelargir

"But the hosts of Mordor were seized with bewilderment, and a great wizardry it seemed to them that their own ships should be filled with their foes; and a black dread fell on them, knowing that the tides of fate had turned against them and their doom was at hand."

The Battle of the Pelennor Fields, The Return of the King

Strategy

This is a Battle-questing (or combat) deck that focuses on using Na'asiyah to kill an Enemy every round, regardless of how big it is.

The key card in the deck is Steward of Gondor, which goes on Na'asiyah. The extra 2 resources per round that come from Steward help her to quickly build up a stack of resources big enough to kill whatever might come out of the encounter deck.   I also make good use of the often-overlooked secondary ability of Steward to grant the Gondor trait. Once Na'asiyah has sworn allegiance to the White City, Denethor can target her with his ability, passing his resource over to her if she happens to need it. It also makes her an eligible target for Wealth of Gondor, although I usually find that Boromir is in greater need of an emergency resource than she is. After a few rounds go by, if Na'asiyah's stack of resources gets a little out of control, I can use an Errand-rider to smooth things out again.

Most of the Allies are for questing or chump blocking. With Boromir's hearty +1 boost, they can add up to quite the tidy sum. Boromir usually accompanies the Allies on the quest, although I might hold him back for the combat phase should dire need arise. I usually hold back Denethor as a defender, or to give an extra action to Na'asiyah via Common Cause.

Sideboard

This deck is a little short on readying, since I tried to stick pretty closely to a Gondor theme. Rohan Warhorse would make an excellent addition to the deck to help get a little more use out of Na'asiyah's incredible combat potential.

Hello, i just tried this deck with my mate 13nrv, On "In ithilien"

Well, what can i say.. i just died on Threat...

Maybe, some Gandalf + Sneak, nor Favor of the valar, might be good in this deck.

Cheers from Belgium.

See Ya !

@Aorakis Wow, suprised to hear you threatted out with a starting threat of 27! That must have been an epic game.

Favor of the Valar might be a good option if you're having threat problems. Secret Vigil would probably be a good choice too. You could give those a try if you wanted to give it another go. :)

Cheers!

@Authraw héhé yeah we might try that someday soon ^^

To be honest we were on a "total random mode" with my teamate 13nrv

So we picked a random "hall of fame" page number and then an other random number to pick the deck.

So i got this one, and 13nrv got a mono knowledge sphere with... no healing at all ! wich cost us the game aswell ^^

Specially on those hard quest ^^

Good thing is i could try that Pirate Girl, wich could be a strong fighter.

But here to, you might consider some more untap for her ? Like Cram and a third Common cause maybe ?

@Aorakis Oh yeah, the deck definitely could use some readying; I omitted it mostly for thematic reasons (and because I was playing solo and could usually kill everything the turn it arrived). Rohan Warhorse would be my readying card of choice for this deck.
