"And I shall not forget it. Nor fail to reward that which is given. Fealty with love, valor with honor, disloyalty with vengeance".

Denethor in The Lord of the Rings, The Return of the King

A thematic Gondorian Valor deck, trying to rekindle hope amongst the walls of Minas Tirith.





This thematic deck can be improved by including cards outside of the Gondorian & Valor archetype, feel free to share any ideas of improvements respecting the theme or not!

Since I started playing this game, I've played a lot of Gondor Valour, so I've tried a lot of combinations to see what works best.

I would personally say that what Gondor does best is allies, and with 18 you could be capitalising on that more. Angbor is an incredible card, Soldier of Gondor in an ally heavy list can be a 2 resource draw 5 cards when your threat is high. Citadel Custodian is quite inconsistent with fewer allies as well. Also personally, I never found a place for KotWT.

You have a lot of events that do the same thing in different ways: Behind Strong Walls and Hold your ground, Hour of Wrath and Need Drives them. With Beregond and Armoured Destrier, I doubt you'll get a lot of use from Horn's Cry either. I'd question whether Raven Winged Helm and Horn of Gondor (I know, theme!) do enough as well.

If you cut down on some of the events and attachments and added in another Angbor, Rammas, Soldier and maybe Pelargir Ship Captain or Squire of the Citadel (although if you can find Trouble in Tharbad anywhere, the one to add would be Herald of Anorien) then you'd have a better balance of allies.
