Adaepholn 44

Adaepholn has a newer deck inspired by this one: OHaUH Dwarf Support

One half of a two handed Dwarf fellowship.

I would love to hear feedback!

I am using cards from the first 2 full cycles, the first 4 saga expansions, OHaUH, HoN, EaAD and TMV. I've used this deck for Dwarrowdelf and some other scenarios to great success, see the Fellowship description for full details.

Strategy Notes

Great cards to see early are Arwen Undómiel, Unexpected Courage, A Test of Will and Gandalf.

Usually Nori quests, while Dáin Ironfoot stays ready to defend and Dwalin attacks.

Unexpected Courage is great on Dáin Ironfoot but could also be good on Dwalin or Thorin Oakenshield for attacking.

Arwen's boost is great for Dáin Ironfoot or Bifur, especially if they have Unexpected Courage or A Burning Brand respectively.

This deck struggles with card draw, so I usually use Gandalf's Staff to draw cards for this deck. I did add Ancient Mathom to try and get more card draw.

Gandalf is great to keep in play, there is a good amount of threat reduction, Dwalin, Nori and TGG.

I don't end up using Zigil Miner much, but I did have Hidden Cache in the deck for a while but found it never seemed useful, I often seem to run out of cards rather than resources with Steward on Dain.

Will of the West might not be necessary, but it can help to reshuffle if I discard too many attachments with A Very Good Tale.

We Are Not Idle works well with Lure of Moria from the other deck, and A Very Good Tale is also great with Lure of Moria.

Dwalin is incredible for reducing threat in scenarios with lots of Orcs, he really helps mitigate having Gandalf in play.


The sideboard contains cards that used to be in this deck.

This deck did use to have more of a mining theme, and began with Hidden Cache and Imladris Stargazer, but I found I didn't get much use out of them and swapped them out. Ever My Heart Rises was used for all the KD and Dwarrowdelf scenarios and was amazing. Son of Arnor was used for The Watcher in the Water.

I intend to try the Over Hill and Under Hill scenarios with this deck next.
