CotR Deck Spotlight: Hall of Fire

deck-spotlight-hall-of-fire

I fully admit that I’m stepping a little out-of-bounds with this one, as we generally feature decks from authors with low reputation (ie, authors that are less likely to get their decks noticed in the first place). That said, this is definitely a deck that has fallen through the cracks; and, having played alongside this deck many times, I can confidently speak to its power.

CotR Deck Spotlight: Cursed Dwarfs

deck-spotlight-cursed-dwarfs

Confession time: After suffering from a horrible case of Dwarf fatigue, I hadn’t picked up a Dwarf deck since I finished On The Doorstep.

That was a long time ago, and we’ve since seen the release of many new, and powerful, archetypes. Last week I sat down and asked myself, “Are Dwarves still as insanely powerful, in the modern cardpool, as they were back in the Dwarrowdelf days?” With that question in mind, I downloaded a Dwarf-swarm deck from RingsDB and loaded up Into Ithilien. Five minutes later, I had my answer: Holy Manwe, they’re even better now!

CotR Deck Spotlight: Ain’t Paying Nobody (Except Maybe a Few People…)

ain-t-paying-nobody-except-maybe-a-few-people-2-0-3-0

How fun, we got both of our new tactics toys (Na’asiyah and Prince Imrahil) back-to-back! Now, just like a kid who got two brand new action-figures for Christmas, let’s mash them together and see what happens! Will it work? To quote stokesbook: “it’s ingeniously stupid”… but he also said that “it works surprisingly well”, so let’s take a look.

CotR Deck Spotlight: The Heir of Isildur

deck-spotlight-the-heir-of-isildur

I have to admit, that the relatively recent introduction of Dunedain cards to our beloved card game stalled me out as I struggled to come up with a decent deckbuild. By requiring careful balance of risk versus reward, it’s a difficult mechanic to build around. Early on, it appears this was one of those archetypes that took a while for the community to wrap its head around, but, at the culmination of the Angmar Awakened cycle, there emerged some powerful and popular builds. I would be remiss if I did not mention Seastan’s Dunedain Trappers deck, which has become the de facto standard of the Dunedain archetype, and is worth checking out if you haven’t yet seen it in action.

As is the case with all deck archetypes, there is more than one road to victory. Variations in hero lineup and focus can shake up the way a Dunedain deck plays, without sacrificing that feeling of living on the edge.
