[hero resource] Radagast in Eriador (low-rare)

Post by Zarathustra » Tue Sep 06, 2005 2:36 am

This is a tight little deck that sticks to a few Rivendell-local regions for maximum draw number and speed.  It can score lots of points quickly, but has a kinda low max MP total.

Start:

Strider / Elfstone
Cirdan
Elrohir / Cram

In Deck:

3 Radagast
1 Elladan
1 Gildor Inglorien
1 Beretar
1 Faramir
1 Gloin
1 Balin

Resources:

3 A Chance Meeting
3 Dragon's Hunger
2 Forewarned is Forearmed
3 Risky Blow
2 Hundreds of Butterflies
3 A Short Rest
2 Muster
2 Marvels Told

1 Rangers of the North
1 Elves of Lindon
1 Lossoth
1 Blue Mountain Dwarves

3 Noble Hound
1 Tom Bombadil

1 Glamdring
1 Durin's Axe

Key Sideboard Cards:

1 Lobelia Sackville-Baggins
1 Bill the Pony
1 Alliance of Free Peoples
1 Marvels Told
1 Palantir of Elostirion
1 Align Palantir

Play Tips:

Just keep to the Eriador regions.  Use somewhere other than Barrow Downs for your first major item, as that's tom's main area and you don't want to waste it.  Radagast / Short Rest should make drawing your resources a snap.  Split up the main company as soon as you ACM for a 4-minder under either strider or Cirdan (intimidate by putting Elrohir under Cirdan to begin with....).  With hl 2 those dragon's hungers will really come in handy vs drakes.  Forewarned / Risky Blow guarantees either 0 assassins or 2 MPs.  And what's more, there's only 6 rares in the whole deck (7 if you count strider)!

MP Breakdown:

Character: 10
Item: 6
Ally: 6-8
Faction: 10-13
Kill: 0-2
Total: 32-37

This deck won semi-finals at North American Championships 2006, and took 3rd in finals.

I've tryed that Deck and noticed it badly needs "Many Turns and Doublings" because in this reagions many nasty Spiders, Wolves or Undead can attack you easyly. With like Wake of War and Doors of Night that is almost impossible to block with only the Risky Blows.
