[Minion (balrog) resource] Lord and Usurper

Post by Zarathustra » Mon Sep 26, 2005 4:30 pm

The ultimate mission.  Cooler and easier to accomplish than the Bag End garbage....



Orders from the Great Demon

In Deck:

3 The Balrog
1 Umagaur


3 We Have Come to Kill
2 Voices of Malice
3 Dark Tryst
2 Great Shadow
1 Caverns Unchoked
2 Angband Revisited
2 I'll Report You
3 Great Fissure
2 Crept Along Cleverly
2 Weigh All Things to a Nicety

3 Roots of the Earth

1 Ancient Black Axe
3 Iron Shield of Old

1 Nasty Slimy Thing

Key sideboard Cards:

1 Breach the Hold
1 Invade Their Domain
1 Lord and Usurper
1 Angband Revisited
1 Voices of Malice
1 Snaga-Hai
1 The Arkenstone
1 The UnderRoads
3 Hill Troll
3 Troll Lout
3 Orc Tracker
3 Darkness Wielded (ultimate canceler!)

Play Tips:

Blue Mountain Dwarfhold is easier to raid because the auto-attack beneath  it doesnt involve dragons.  Putz around drawing cards for a while.  Play Roots of the Earth asap.  Once ready, you can make your raid.  The Arkenstone is playable after Lord and Usurper for a big 3 MP on top of the mission.  Valarauko might be able to advise on how to improve such a deck as this.

MP Breakdown:

Character: 14
Item: 10
Ally: 1
Faction: 1
Misc: 13
Total: 39
