Darkling Door 6255

This is a thematic deck built for an ongoing series on my blog, Darkling Door.

Theme: Ancient friendship between Elves and Dwarves

Played Against: Nightmare Raid on the Grey Havens

“The words are in the elven-tongue of the West of Middle-earth in the Elder Days,” answered Gandalf. “But they do not say anything of importance to us. They say only: The Doors of Durin, Lord of Moria. Speak, friend, and enter. And underneath small and faint is written: I, Narvi, made them. Celebrimbor of Hollin drew these signs.”

The Fellowship of the Ring, A Journey in the Dark

Strategy

A powerhouse Dwarf / Noldor combo deck that focuses on getting the most out of some strong heroes.

why do u like the Elven Spear this much here? in this deck (not very good cerddraw and not so many cards that are worth discarding) i think the usual weapons are better Dagger of Westernesse, War Axe or Warrior Sword. they give at least +1 for that you need 1 cards with elvenspear (the spear and another), and the other weapon is permanent. with War Axe + Rivendell Blade Glorfindel attaks up to 11 (9 with -2 armor) there is no need for a Elven Spear.

Two reasons:

  1. A consequence of tuning the deck against Raid on the Grey Havens. The Spear alone can get Glorfindel to 8 attack on round 1 with no resource investment, so I can kill the enemy that starts in play right away.
  2. It's useful to be able to have a way to dump extra cards mid-game so I can trigger Galdor's once-per-game hand refresh.

Usually by the end of the game the Spear has served its purpose and I replace it with another weapon.
