The Dead Marshes #95. Tactics.


Even with his errata Boromir still stands well in his spot. The steadfast hero goes great with a Gondorian Shield and has access to a multitude of great weapons and armour to make this Captain of Gondor a cut above the rest.

The designers have done a fantastic job of capturing the theme of this character standing fast in his Fellowship form. Great card.

Boromir is OP. Period. Even without the Blood/Fire/Steward shenanigans he's incredible. With the amount of threat reduction available at this point in the game's life, you could build a deck entirely devoted to threat reduction to keep that Boromir player up and running. There's also the deck idea of setting up the other players to do their thing and then die before revealing encounter cards. Boromir fits right in to it. Honestly, there is no limit to the power of Boromir (and I don't want him errata'd!). — Sarseth 128
So what Sarseth? I'm currently waiting for FFG to issue me a replacement card. If it's not on my card, I play according to what's written on it. — pd187540 10
Sarseth is not responsible for your card errata. They are only keeping us updated as a community on new rulings, which is incredibly helpful in comparison to your contribution here. Play the game how you wish, no one is forcing you to scribble out the text on your old Boromir card. — Zukin 110

Got errated:

Boromir SoM 95
Should read: “Raise your threat by 1 to ready Boromir. (Limit once per phase.)”

I think he is still great with his new limitations. He can defend attacks during the quest phase, and with only a few readying cards, you get one extra readying effect. — Lecitadin 144

I honestly don't care if this card got errata'd. My original card doesn't have "(limit once per phase)," so unless FFG gives me a free replacement Boromir card, whatever's written on the card stands.

Not seeing how this qualifies as a review... — TheNameWasTaken 1
Seems you're really upset at the Errata. At the end of the day, you can choose to play the game however you intend to, with or without the errata Boromir is a great hero. If you're not intending to play him at any official store events like the Wizards quest, in a competitive sense, there isn't much of a problem. However I can understand that you need to voice your frustration on the matter, we can't really do anything here as a community to help you. Redirect your anger at FFG through the right means of contact on their website, not on a community card database, I can vouch that the LOTR LCG team is very active on customer questions and concerns. — Zukin 110
