A shrub is an ent that thinks he's wise
Also known as a brushsta
Always talkin' about huorns he wants
And exhausts on his dumb roots

So no, I don't want your planning
No, I don't want to go on your quest and
No, I don't want to travel nowhere
Though, I need to get engaged I guess

No, I don't want no shrubs
A shrub is an ent that can't get no ready from me
Sitting on Peregrin's side with no ent-bride
Derning his dingle at me

No, I don't want no shrubs
A shrub is an ent that can't get no ready from me
Sitting on Peregrin's side with no ent-bride
Derning his dingle at me

Well a shrub boomin' me but his game is kinda moot
And I know that he cannot preserve me
'Cause I'm riding errands and he stinkin' like Angband
Won't play him from my hand

So no, I don't want your planning
No, I don't want to go on your quest and
No, I don't want to travel nowhere
Though, I need to get engaged I guess

No, I don't want no shrubs
A shrub is an ent that can't get no ready from me
Sitting on Peregrin's side with no ent-bride
Derning his dingle at me

No, I don't want no shrubs
A shrub is an ent that can't get no ready from me
Sitting on Peregrin's side with no ent-bride
Derning his dingle at me

If you don't have an orc and you're exhausted
Skinbark I'm talkin' to you
If you one hit point away from dying
Beechbone I'm talkin' to you
If you have a resource that you won't pay up
Treebeard I'm talkin' to you
Wanna play with me with no ready
Oh no I don't want no

No, I don't want no shrubs
A shrub is an ent that can't get no ready from me
Sitting on Peregrin's side with no ent-bride
Derning his dingle at me

No, I don't want no shrubs
A shrub is an ent that can't get no ready from me
Sitting on Peregrin's side with no ent-bride
Derning his dingle at me

If you can't vertically extend your orientation
Then that leaves you with the "shrub" predication
It's just your station, if you don't have the craft
To draught me and defend me from Mirkwood to the Taur-im-Duinath

So let me give you something to trumpet out
Entwash out your mind with strategy to bump it out
Can't forget the allies on the board in front of me
It's as clear as Isen from Methedras to Sundering Seas

Option to hook up with the thrilling engagement cost
'Cause it'll be his loss and then you will get to floss
A hard-earned resource with an extra card draw that I endorse
And perforce a ready ally probably not on a horse

Mister Fanghorn if you really wanna quest
Denethor's second son be your best for
Ignorin' your plays, ain't down all the ways, stand you up the next phase, what passive text?

No, I don't want no shrubs
A shrub is an ent that can't get no ready from me
Sitting on Peregrin's side with no ent-bride
Derning his dingle at me

No, I don't want no shrubs
A shrub is an ent that can't get no ready from me
Sitting on Peregrin's side with no ent-bride
Derning his dingle at me

Brilliant! Fantastic write up!

Thanks @TheChad! Appreciate the love.

What the song probably doesn't get across is that this deck is usually played in multiplayer as kind of a casual but potent member of the fellowship.

It could probably be closer to optimal by looking at the attachment numbers (trading out Entangling Nets for more Hauberk of Mail and Ent Draught, for example) and adjusting the numbers for unique allies (Skinbark and Quickbeam) to meet the needs of a particular quest.

Agreed, brilliant write up!

Hauberk of mail is just for derdingle warrior ?

Jul 08, 2019 Feelyat 34

Yes, @RegisF. Having the extra defense is nice, and the extra hit point will let him fire off the special ability with a little more wiggle room when you want to.

Thx @Feelyat. I'm interested in that kind of build but how did you managed the ressources ? don't have you money problem ?

The first turn can be a little iffy, but Mablung is a real earner as soon as you can interact with enemies.
The DĂșnedain Hunter can give you a resource in the planning phase, meaning you can then afford Booming Ent or Derndingle Warrior.
Alternatively, an Errand-rider can smooth the first turn by consolidating your or to afford the afore-mentioned Ents or else Wandering Ent, Quickbeam, or Warden of Healing.
Plus a couple Wealth of Gondor can give you a or in a pinch.
If you want to tweak my build to add Steward of Gondor then you could (not sure exactly what you'd cut), but I've found you're rarely hurting to pay for things, especially once Treebeard is also online to pay for your Ents.
