Rolled works fine enough for ringdecks. I wouldnt even bother adding Blinds to start with... Rolled Down and the General cards like cruel claw percieved and Inner Rot do more damage. Saruman isnt the king of GI with his 15, and cruel claw bites more than Blind ever would do.

I think they do apply. By using tryst as an example,it builds up speed. It takes time to add 3 Blind to the West, and against a ringdeck I focus more on rolled than blind to be in tbh.

You have many more rings to choose from, spirit rings, many magic rings, dwarven rings... 4 times a chance for ringlore compared to 3 times hero/minion. Sarumans ring can get back a ring each turn to compensate for Rolled Down. Besides, Wizards Test is obvious the way to go with Rings, as the double...

Well, in my opinion Blind and Ire compensate for the doubled pool of cards to make a deck from. Wether it be rings or another deck, playing a FW has its bonuses, and thus also should be compensated.

Well, for minion as well Rolled is a problem. The only side viable IMHO to play rings is hero, becase they have brooches to protect from rolled down. If I ever face a ring deck, be sure to face rolled down at least three times. Once, second trough mouth and uvatha gets the mouth for rolled number 3....

Miruvor cannot be used between becoming wounded and taking a body check. Only effects that alter the roll may be used, and Miruvor targets the body, not the roll. What the second one means is that you could heal a character that is already wounded and losing a strike, avoiding a -1 and decreasing th...

Also, people generally dont play Blind Ire in main, and thus have to resort quite a portion of cards into sideboarding those cards in. Against a ringdeck I'd rather start using Rolled Down/Mouth/Uvatha combo to drain the rings than stopping the tests, and using Outpost to recycle Rolled Down. Much m...

TRue, ANR is just hard to do. Even with the scroll you still need to roll a 9, since the -1 applied to Fallen Wizards. MAybe ICE should have reworded the card.

What I mean is that if you are too concerned about Blind and Ire you should agree not to play them. A FW has the full bonus from two sides, and thus should be punished, even in ringtesting. He can play a total of 6 to 10 ringtest cards. Also, there are FW decks like Marks Framsburg Bounty. That deck...

I think it goes against nature to cancel specific cards out of Ire and Blind. If you are concerned for them to be too broken, cancel them out. There are more decks that rely heavily on interrupts and thus are vulnerable to Ire and Blind. Besides, most FW sideboard contains usually a total of 3 Blind...

The Mouth is a rare character from the LE set. You can start him and still play a Ringwraith as avatar. And The Mouth is in the Indur challenge deck, so if you get a hold of that one, you have a Mouth.

I would definitely vote against restarting. The cards as we have them now are set upon the rules. If you would start new rules, lots of cards would need a rewrite. Also, making new rules needs an extensive work of playtesting, whereas the game by itself has already seen that phase. Current ME just n...

Not entirely true. The deathblow was the long wait on Hunters and the near bankrupcy which made players lose interest in the game.
