"I was coming over the mountains with a friend or two..."
"The mountain smoked beneath the moon; The dwarves, they heard the tramp of doom."
Build army of the Naughrim and rule the battlefield. Thematic 2 player decks
"I was coming over the mountains with a friend or two..." said the wizard. "Or two? I can only see one, and a little one at that," said Beorn.
I would like to present my Khazad decks, hope you can have A Very Good Tale with them...or two. Especially constructed for Hobbit saga quests and Dwarrowdelf cycle (normal or nightmare versions - tested on both of those with good results).
Pump Bombur (not with food but attachements ;) ) to make him your sturdy deffender (Brand, Mail, Dwarven shield, Perservation) Zigil miner to mine for resources and (with many more discard effects) for Ered Luin Miner. Use Dori as a fail save for defending and let the giant bear roam the battlefield. Well-Equipped can be live-saver in first rounds. Legacy belongs of course on the Le/Sp deck. Le/Sp deck can in many cases stay on the inicial threat thanks to Nori. Keep Lure of Moria for that key moment, its a game-changer.
Sideboard: Ever My Heart rises (if you are underground or in the mountains) Your pants are falling down? Narvis´s Belt Are you afraid (of too few heroe actions)? Unxpected Courage or Cram Need to kill that first troll? Goblin-Cleaver, Heavy stroke, Unseen strike Untroubled by darkness
For less theme and more power: dunedain warning, steward
"Farewell, good thief," he said. "I go now to the halls of waiting to sit beside my fathers, until the world is renewed. Since I leave now all gold and silver, and go where it is of little worth, I wish to part in friendship from you, and I would take back my words and deeds at the Gate."
