Discard Eagles and Rohans for the win

Description

Duo of decks that play in synergy the eagles and the Rohans with The Last Alliance and a support deck.

Why associate Rohan and eagles?

Rohans has a lot of discards effects and eagles too.

Gwaihir can be ready when a Rohan leaves play.

Thengel can put into play Rohans or eagles. We can discards ally with almost all allies from the deck ! We have 2 Elendilmir to repeat that twice. Elendilmir can be for Galadriel too if we need to manage the threat.

Théoden can reduce the first Rohan but the first eagle too if we want ! For exemple with the contract + Theoden, we can pay an Eagles of the Misty Mountains for only two... And we generate a ressource with Alagos !

With Wilyador, it's free and generate a ressource ! (without Theoden) We can return him in our hand with Gamling and repeat it ! We have Gúthwinë to do that too.

Even better, with Golden Crown we can have Wilyador for free, generate a ressource... And a second when we discard him before the end of the turn. This is very satisfying.

Saruman helps to get the deck out even faster.

Galadriel manages the threat and drawing. She can have Unexpected Courage with Nenya too.

Maybe the most important issue with those decks is the threat.

So we have :

2 Double Back, 3 Hidden Roosts, 3 Galadriel's Handmaiden, Morwen Steelsheen who can reduce our threat each turn same as Galadriel.

We draw a lot with :

Deep Knowledge, Galadriel, Hidden Roosts, The Eagles Are Coming!, Gléowine, Horn of the Mark.

We have heal with Morwen Steelsheen and 3 Warden of Healing

We have 6 A Test of Will so we can cancel everything :)

Those decks fight very well, and quest properly. Messenger of Manwë are very usefull to quest and give ressources with Alagos.

I hesitated to put Word of Command in support deck, it's still in testing phase.

Nice decks! These look great. Double Back is probably not the best with Saruman as only one player will get the threat reduction. The Galadhrim's Greeting possibly combined with Desperate Alliance may be better. Perhaps The Fall of Gil-Galad is even worth it for Saruman in certain quests.

Thanks. Double back is here to reduce Gwaihir's deck because it begins at 36. So Galadriel can be for her deck. The Galadhrim's Greeting + Desperate Alliance is maybe a lot for me but i like The Fall of Gil-Galad ! I never played this card before mais here it seems interesting. In end game i would probably have it even it's limited to 1 per deck. And Saruman's death before the win could be satisfying too :D

i think Herugrim is not worth it, even played on Théoden

would max. Flight of the Eagles the Eagle of the North are sooo good. each use is a ready or Gwaihir too...

would reduce Morwen Steelsheen and Gamling each by 1. the remaining card i would take Squire of the Mark perhaps take more of them, reducing uniques to 1 or Eagle Emissary or Escort from Edoras

i agree with Herugrim because Gwaihir can fight alone fast enough.

They are good but it's random and i dislike randomness ^^

I want Morwen Steelsheen as fast as possible to reduce my threat every turn so i keep x3.

Gamling is very important too to repeat the best discard effect (depend on scenario) from the beginning.

I like Squire of the Mark yes, i hesitated with Eagle Emissary which is not a very good card but i was afraid to miss questing... actually she can help the same for less.

Thank you !

i thread is this much o an issue despite 3 Hidden Roosts would rather take 2 The Galadhrim's Greeting (and 1 morwen) then 3 morwen.

she only reduce by 1 is it this important for the game if you can use her 2-3 rounds earlier?

and, if you really are afraid of willpower i asueme, 1-2 Astonishing Speed get you more than the Eagle Emissary (with contract it can be used on eagles too)

Hidden Roosts is free, your cards are expensive i think. You don't want have those turn 1.

Hidden Roosts can be use here for Eagles of the Misty Mountains if we have Squire of the Mark, so it reduces by 4 for 0.

Morwen is so strong that have her turn 1 is necessarly a good idea :D Gwaihir is not yet boosted so he can have damage, she can heal too.

Yep for a one shot boost if needed, i will test that.

i just do not see the need to reduce early in the game. but its your stile i just mention, what i would do different.

what helps overall with thread is Elfhelm i would include hi.

Jan 24, 2023 Kaspatou 50

Yep of course. She can reduce depends on scenario but even if she only quests, she is free so it's op :) Yep i will include him in Saruman's deck.
