This is a fun, aggressive Gondor and Rogan deck. The purpose of the deck is to take advantage of the hero synergy. With Eomers ability to enage enemies in the staging area Faramir can ready an ally and Mablung receives a resource. The latter 2 functions can be again carried out in the defense and attack phases. Netting the player 2 readies and 2 resources. Therefore the deck quickly generates enough resources to pay for everything the player has in hand, with limited card draw the player can end up top decking. Though Soldier of Gondor and Gandalf can help. Speaking of Gandalf, he and Secret Vigil are the only threat reducing cards so I often use him for that to aid Eomera ability by keeping enemies in the staging area. What is neat about this deck is the mileage it gets out of Gandalf. If I am playing him correctly, he can quest, ready off of Faramirs ability when Eomer attacks, defend since he is ready, and then be readied again in the attack phase. When Gandalf is not in the game Knight of the White Tower can be played the same way. It starts with high threat but has natural readying and does not suffer for resources in the least. Dunedain Remedy works wonderfully in the deck when heros are damaged but often the allies defend sparing the hero's. Even chumping with Squire of the Citadel to generate more resources. I put the horn of Gondor on Eomer to propel his ability.

When using Eomers ability to attack an enemy in the staging area, it doesn't count as engaging an enemy. Faramirs and Mablung abilities won't trigger. Engaging an enemy specifically means moving it/placing it into your 'zone'.

Best laid plansâ˜ș Thanks.

Could be remedied a little bit by tactics aragorn (both could trigger twice, once during encounter and once during combat). If you want the most you can get, Son of Arnor isn't a bad add either (you have a sneak attack already and so this might help in engaging in other phases)

Apr 02, 2020 Glorfinzell 6

Thank you for the tips. How would Tactics Aragorn help?

Apr 02, 2020 Glorfinzell 6

Can he enable you to attack into the staging area similiar too Haldir?

Apr 02, 2020 Jtothemac 300

So suppose you have two enemies. One you engage, the other you don't (for whatever reason-- multiplayer, engagement cost too high, etc). This occurs during the engagement phase. Thus, both faramir and mablung trigger.

Then, when playing with tactics aragorn, aragorn helps kill the engaged with enemy during the combat phase. His effect triggers and you engage the second enemy. Since this is a new phase, mablung and faramir's triggers go off again. You've readied two allies (or the same one twice), and received two resources.

Tactics Aragorn and Roheryn is also a nice play in a leadership/ tactics deck. Usually you will need some kind of juice with aragorn, like Orcrist or something, but the ability to pull an enemy and kill it, and then pull another one is a pretty sweet setup. Doesn't trigger your heroes twice like outlined above, but still. You have a pretty sweet setup here.

Apr 02, 2020 Glorfinzell 6

So Aragorn would allow you too pull down a second enemy and engage it?

Apr 02, 2020 Jtothemac 300

That's right. In fact, a well timed Hour of Wrath would allow you to pull as many enemies as you can kill with aragorn, since his trigger has no limit.

Apr 02, 2020 Glorfinzell 6

Is Aragorn the one who does the attacking? Is it essentially a readying? Or do you need a ready attacker? Sorry for all the questions.

Apr 02, 2020 Jtothemac 300

You're fine. You can click Here to see aragorn's text. He has to be the one attacking. But with hour of wrath, he does not exhaust to attack so as long as he is killing enemies, he continues to engage more. Very thematic.

Thanks again, I was working on a Gondor deck with Tactics Aragorn and Mablung, it seems Rohan War horse is a great attachment for him. If he participates in destroying an enemy he readies to engage the next enemy drawn down from his other effect. One question, does that second need to be defended first before he is engaged?

Apr 03, 2020 Jtothemac 300

No. The enemy attacks are resolved first in the combat phase. By the time you are attacking with Aragorn, the opportunity for enemy attacks is over (unless they have some added text for attacks upon engagement). So whether you are pulling from staging or from another player, that enemy will not attack you.

That's awesome, total newbie amazed at a card that's been out for years lol thanks
