HolyHamNCheese has a newer deck inspired by this one: Dwarf Lore/Spirit Deck V1.0

Trying to put together a working/multi-purpose Dwarf Lore/Spirit deck. Any tips/improvements?

i would include 3 legacy of durin. yea with 5 dwarfes that means 3 cards per round or more if you do play the unerrated version of it. then, take the unique allies only once, they are not thiis much better than another nonamedwarf. (exception dori , because perhaps you use him and then its good to have another one,and perhaps dwalin,because you can take him as cheap lost if you have the 2. in your hand)

then big question, do u want to mine with the zigils? if yes, try to build your deck to one cost. this should be 2, because many allies cost 2.

this means out: 2 bombur (you have him as hero, or is there some special trick?) 2 bifur take third miner and 3 Ered Nimrais Prospector and the 3 neutral ered lin miner.

then skip most of your attachements and events and replace with mandatory ones or some of value of 2.

mandatory: 3 legacy of durin 3 test of will 1-3 dwarfen tomp (perhaps 1will of the west, you have to test if you mine enough)

then cost 2: (you can keep): lore of imladris, ambush put in:

unexpected courage Untroubled by Darkness A Burning Brand (the 2 cos version) Armor of Erebor

if you have less than 50 now, fill up with hidden cache, and blue mountain trader.

@doomguardLegacy of Durin is a great suggestion (no idea how I overlooked it originally), but since it's a unique, I can only have one in play at a time, no?

Unfortunately, I don't have Hidden Cache or BMT, as I only have core, Mirkwood cycle, Khazad-dum (and full cycle), and all Saga EXPs.

@doomguard Also I totally just overlooked having Bombur both as hero and as allies. Oops, guess that means my "victory" earlier was a failure, haha.

yes you can only have one legacy in play, but this card is so awesome, that its worth to have it 3 times in deck specially if you can mine it away, or discard it with darons runes (perhaps you should take them ;) ) the 3 cards per round mean 1 regular, 1 with ori one with legacy

to make mining easier, try some imladris stargazer (cost 2 ;) )

@doomguard Wow, those are some really good suggestions. I'll definitely give them a try! Thank you!

Would Stand and Fight also be a decent choice for bringing Ziggy or Stargazer back into the fight? Or should I just be making sure they don't go to my discard to begin with?

@doomguard My biggest issue I'm running into is I don't have any more Dwarf allies in Spirit/Lore to replace the doubles of my unique allies with. Or are you saying I could get away with having fewer allies?

This is my first real build by myself, so I was trying to stick to roughly 50% allies to keep it easy, but if I'm wasting my deck choices on allies I can never play, I guess that's no good either! So many choices and decisions!

I did miss my Longbeard Map-Makers as well, so that could be 3 potential replacements, but he has really weak stats.
