CotR Deck Spotlight: Legion of Heroes

deck-spotlight-legion-of-heroes

Someone must have spiked my tea, because I’m spotlighting a two-hero deck… Wait! Don’t run away yet, because this one’s worth trying out!

Yes, in general, I’m not a big fan of 2-hero decks. The big problem that I have with them is that they tend to be overly-dependent on certain cards, be it a first-round resourceful or a particularly impactful Timely Aid. Sure, when all the stars align, these decks can pack one helluva punch. The problem is that they fail utterly just a little too often for my tastes. Nothing hurts more than exhausting Gimli and Gildor Inglorian to play A Very Good Tale, only to pull out a single Rivendell Scout for your efforts. That’s hard to recover from, especially considering you’re already behind in resources from the lack of a third hero.

Yet, despite my usual arguments, here I am looking at a 2-hero deck list that works. How does it do it? Let’s find out!

CotR Deck Spotlight: Legolas and Gimli with their weird friend

deck-spotlight-legolas-and-gimli-with-their-weird-friend

Now that Sands of Harad has been out for a while, this is a good time to look at an Unlikely Friendship build. Legolas and Gimli make a very powerful team, but also present some deck building challenges: How do you consistently pay for Gimli’s kicker? How do you consistently pay for Legolas’ kicker? Who gets to be the third wheel?

The thematically obvious choice for the latter question is Aragorn, and I highly recommend Beorn’s The Three Hunters Aggro deck if you like Voltron hero builds. Other interesting decks include The Third Knife by chrsjxn and Leglimvor by Seastan. Each of these decks take the unlikely friendship concept in a different direction, but did you spot the similarities? All three utilize Steward of Gondor for Gimli, and Elven-light for Legolas. Their kicker costs are high enough that we are forced to build around them, and these cards make for obvious staples.

CotR Deck Spotlight: Exploitation of Miners

deck-spotlight-exploitation-of-miners

RingsDB has been quite active over the past couple of weeks, and it is times like these where gems fall through the cracks. Today’s feature got buried, not once, but twice by the recent flurry of submissions (because two versions were published).

So why resurrect this particular deck? Because it showcases how the latest Dwarven toys, Dwarf Pipe and Erebor Guard, do wonders for the dwarven miner archetype.
