Devaresh 1644

Devaresh has a newer deck inspired by this one: Tracking your Shipment

Galadriel may be one of the most powerful beings in Middle Earth, but she is no stranger to the common man’s plight. Having ordered her Copy of the Newest deluxe expansion of her favorite game from Dale, she monitored the shipment closely from her mysterious mirror...heartbroken by delays and lack of status updates.

Actually Galadriel is a good fit thematically for the cycle and is super strong in this Dale deck! She provides they card draw and threat reduction needed to balance out the archetype and provides for some fantastic synergy!

For more details on tricks and tips for the deck check out my blog:

How does it play

In your opening hand you want to see King of Dale which is what you will mulligan for. Ideally you have a questing ally and some attachments as well.

You will be using Galadriel for card draw most every turn along with her threat reduction. King of Dale typically goes on Bard son of Brand and from there you start loading up allies with one attachment a piece.

Once Galadriel has Mirror of Galadriel you can start searching for whatever pieces you need to continue your momentum forward. The struggle for Dale is that you need a balance of allies and attachments in order to continue progressing through your deck and ramp up. I will also note that Silver Harp usually goes on Bard son of Brand to count further toward King of Dale.

Nenya will also give us access to (we aren’t likely to commit Galadriel and her willpower to questing) so that we can play our Warden of Healing if we need him (most of the time we don’t).

This box has some very good tools that you will want to prioritize depending on what quest you are up against, check out the blog for more details!

Summary

This deck is very strong and flexible. It can cover questing or combat in multiplayer, and it is more than strong enough for single player. It has achieved victory in every quest that I’ve tried it against so far but it will struggle against attachment hate or quests that tech against large ally counts.

It has quickly become my favorite army style deck and I highly recommend it. Give it a try and let me know how it goes! Hope you enjoy it as much as I do!

Nice deck .. just the way i would build it. What about adding a Master of the Forge in exchange of a Warden of Healing?

Very cool deck! Who hew that Bard was such a great musician? I think this represents the versatility and diversity of the third hero slot in a Dale deck. It demonstrates how the tone of the deck changes based on this selection. Galadriel is a great pick!

@JanB Thanks! you definitely can make that substitution, especially if someone else has healing. I’d say try it out and see if you need that extra draw. I think Galadriel is probably sufficient alongside Brand. I work through almost my whole deck every game.

@thanatopsis thanks! I agree there’s a lot of flexibility in the archetype. This is definitely my favorite I’ve found so far.

Huh, just noticed Brand's card text (at least on RingsDB) reads . . . without and attachment . . .

That’s strange @Wandalf the Gizzardit definitely says “without an attachment” for me.

As soon as I saw @Wandalf the Gizzard's comment I fixed the text.

Well done @thanatopsis!
