Arrhias has a newer deck inspired by this one: The Scourges of the Witch King

"He will not return to this land. Far off yet is his doom, and not by the hand of man will he fall." Glorfindel

"But no living man am I! You look upon a woman. Éowyn I am, Éomund's daughter." Eowyn

Merry it's here for managed thread. With the pony, i wait the encounter card to engaged him in the quest. If i have an enemy, i exhaust for thread (and draw, with pipe). If i am too just for the quest i engage him. Else, i use Merry for attack (with dagger).

Eowyn is the key of deck, with Strider, she have 6 Will at the start, and she doesn’t exhaust for the quest. So it’s like i have 3 heroes. With the golden shield, she defends for 7. Dagger can be use to cancel a shadow card.

ResourceFul is for Merry, because ally cost most. The objective is 2 for merry 1 for Eowyn.

Unexpected courage is for Eowyn, to use the capacity (10 attack) several time, (Forth Eorlingas! or Hour of Wrath can be use too)

The most important ally is :

  • Glorfindel, for thematic, and quests and attack.
  • Boromir for attack and defends
  • Treebeard for all.
  • Northern Tracker to cleaning location
  • Bilbo for quest and to search a pipe
  • Celduin Traveler for quest and cost.
  • Arwen Undómiel for quest and help for defending
  • Derndingle Warrior defend and injured ents for Booming Ent
  • Booming Ent for attack

I think Imarhil if merry is dead…

A good hand is :

  • Strider
  • Celduin Traveler
  • ResourceFul
  • Feint
  • Test of will
  • Golden Shield

Hobbit pipes are useless here. You can only draw if you lower your threat with an event, and neither of your events does.

Have you considered adding Herugrim for Eowyn?

Oct 04, 2016 Arrhias 138

Hum why not, i haven't add because it's cost 3 and with 2 heroes it's just. and I must have unexpected courage for use cost 2, for 5 i have Glorfindel...

Tonight i will try : Forth Eorlingas! -2 Herugrim +2

Hobbit Pipe -2 Mathom +2
