9 - The Seventh Level (Progression Series)


This is another fellowship continuing on in my goal to play through all of the quests in release order to learn how all (or most) of the cards interact with one another. The first fellowship for the quests in the core set can be found here, and it contains a slightly more detailed overview of what I'm going for with building these decks. As always, any feedback is appreciated so that I can continue to learn more!

Building off the theme of the previous quest, I decided to go with a ton of dwarves. The quest is chalk full of 2 HP goblins, so I included Thalin and made sure I had tactics in both decks so I had tons of access to Gondorian Spearmen. Sneak Attack + Longbeard Orc Slayer was along for the ride to take out as many others as I possibly could, and I have plenty of Feints as well as some Forest Snares to deal with the Trolls (who came out really early in all five attempts I had at this quest).

Bifur's ability continues to be incredibly good, allowing me to try to build my first tri-sphere deck. Dain and Gloin don't have too many things to pay for, so parting gifts was included so that I could spread out some resources that was as well if needed.

This was a fun quest, with a lot of my decks being built towards directly killing off the goblins as fast as possible.
