"For morning came, morning and a wind from the sea; and the darkness was removed, and the hosts of Mordor wailed, and terror took them, and they fled, and died, and the hoofs of wrath rode over them. And then all the host of Rohan burst into song, and they sang as they slew, for the joy of battle was on them, and the sound of their singing that was fair and terrible came even to the City."

-The Ride of the Rohirrim-

This is my Rohan Forth, The Three Hunters! deck. I always wanted to make a strong Rohan deck but always struggled with the Allies. The attachments are kind of Rohan's strong point anyway so I decided to take advantage of that. I've played this deck a lot and think at this point I have it pretty well ironed out. As it is, the deck is tuned more for a multiplayer setting but in general it works fine in solo as well. One of the big advantages of the contract is that it provides healing, which Rohan in general lacks, and which Erkenbrand specifically needs. The contract typically flips after the 3rd or 4th turn, though I've had it flip after 2 in some cases.

Opening Hand:

I'm typically looking for 3-4 restricted attachments and some card draw in my opening hand. The two most critical cards for the deck are Armored Destrier and Snowmane so I would prioritize finding those two. After that the goal is to get the contract to flip so you can start healing.

Attachments:

Here are the ideal attachments. Exceptions are often made to flip the contract but these are the ones I typically choose:

Eowyn:

Erkenbrand:

Theoden:

Other Cards:

  • Onward Into Battle can either go on Theoden if he doesn't have Snowmane yet, or on Erkenbrand so he can quest after the contract flips.
  • Hour of Wrath is just too fun in multiplayer and is easy enough to pay for late-game.
  • Need Brooks No Delay usually grabs a mount. This card was key in getting this deck to work well.
  • Open the Armory is great for finding Herugrim or making sure there is a weapon in play for Foe-hammer
  • Depending on what you need for the quest, Power of Orthanc can be swapped out for the sideboard cards.

Future Updates:

  • As soon as I get the 3rd repackaged saga expansion (I know, I'll still be waiting a while), The Gondorian Shields will be swapped out for Golden Shields.

Have fun! Hope you like it!

"This card was key in getting this deck to work well." Love to hear it! Great deck.

This deck looks awesome. I love the built in healing for Erkenbrand.

@Seastan @Marctimmins89 Thanks!

@doomguard Thanks for the suggestions. I'm not sure there are enough uniques for a fair exchange. We are not Idle is a good suggestion for solo but I plan to bring this deck to Con of the Rings so I like Campfire Tales. For pure efficiency, you are probably right about War Axe and the Spear but I just love slapping a War Axe on Theoden for +3 or 4 attack. Maybe I'll even it up at 2/2.

you have 5 different unique each 2 times in the deck. i would say get 1 double is very likely.

Between Éowyn and Steed of Imladris, Elven-light seems like it would be good.

@NERD You are correct. Elven light would be great but I just hate how unthematic it is in the deck.
