“This then was the end of the debate of lords: that they should set forth on the second morning from that day with seven thousands, if they might be found...”
The Last Debate, The Return of the King
This deck is my first solid go at a mono-tactics deck and I was surprised to not find any deck in my search with this lineup! As I was building it I couldn’t help but think of the theme of this chapter in the books where the leaders of men rally together anyone they can muster in order to march on the Black Gate.
How does it play?
You have four potential ways of getting allies in play. You can quest successfully and put one in at discount with Hirgon. You can pull out an ally using Prince Imrahil. You can play Elfhelm from hand for one resource thanks to Théoden. Or if you trigger The Red Arrow in valour you will pull out another ally! This deck will amass allies very quickly, and does a decent job of keeping them around!
The strength of this deck is combat, plain and simple. However it boasts a starting willpower of 9! Most decks wish they could throw that out first round! The catch is that will be about as high as you go for the whole game...but if you manage enemies and locations well you shouldn’t need much more than that.
There are a couple important inclusions. Trained for War is very good in this deck, and allows for a few rounds of late game all out questing! Wait no Longer also can help in a pinch to prevent more threat from entering the staging area.
I have used every ally in the deck multiple times, and each one is an all star in the right situation. I love options, and this deck has plenty when it comes to combat!
The one card you want to mulligan for is Legolas, but even if you don’t get him you should be just fine!
This deck punches hard. It is a combat focused deck. That being said it handles well both in multiplayer and solo, and it can put out some surprising questing numbers right out of the gate!
If you want a stricter thematic version swap out the allies that don’t meet your preference with the ones on the side board. The deck should still run just fine!
If you haven’t tried mono-tactics now is the time! Either way give the deck a try and let me know what you think! Hope you enjoy and happy questing!
