This deck is taken from the FFG website here:

“I was not asleep, Master Elrond. If you want to know, you have all come out from your feast too soon, and you have disturbed me–in the middle of making up a song. I was stuck over a line or two, and was thinking about them.” –Bilbo Baggins, The Fellowship of the Ring

The Dwarrowdelf cycle for The Lord of the Rings: The Card Game has nearly arrived to its climactic conclusion. In Shadow and Flame , several of Middle-earth’s greatest heroes will find themselves forced to confront one of the deadliest demons from the days of Morgoth, Durin’s Bane ( Shadow and Flame , 150). For the heroes to survive, they’ll need all their skill, strength of arms, and strength of spirit. They’ll also need all the help they can get, with a good deal of it likely coming from many of the new player cards from the Dwarrowdelf cycle.

Over the next few weeks, we’ll look at some of the decks FFG staff members are playing through their games in the mines of Moria. We’re happy to share some of our deck-building tips and show off some of our favorite player cards from the Dwarrowdelf cycle, and we hope these examples will spur your creativity as you explore new themes and decks in your games of The Lord of the Rings .

Working Together in Harmony

The Dwarrowdelf cycle features a good number of Elves and Dwarves and cards to support those races, but it also introduced a strong new card in The Long Dark that gives strength to Middle-earth’s musicians. Love of Tales ( The Long Dark , 85) joins the game’s limited list of cards that can boost resource acceleration. Other such cards, like Steward of Gondor ( Core Set , 26), Horn of Gondor ( Core Set , 42), and Zigil Miner ( Khazad-dûm , 9), have become staple additions to many successful deck designs, but while the Love of Tales can provide some of the same boosts, it does so in a much more focused manner.
