[minion resource; NEW CHALLENGE] Ren: Lord of Rings

Post by Zarathustra » Sun Sep 18, 2005 11:50 pm

The new and totally revised NEW CHALLENGE DECK for Ren the Ringwraith.  You wanted rings, you got rings!  Check this out:


Dror / Open to the Summons
Gulla / Foul-Smelling Paste
Pon Opar

In deck:

3 Ren the RW
some more...


3 Gold Ring that Sauron Fancies
1 Bright Gold Ring
1 Scroll of Isildur
1 Dwarven Ring of Thelor's Tribe
1 The Oracle's Ring
2 Minor Ring
1 Palantir of Orthanc

1 Beornings

3 War-Wolf

2 Test of Fire
2 Secrets of Their Forging
2 Voices of Malice
3 Dark Tryst
3 Not Slay Needlessly
2 Orc Quarrels
2 Crept Along Cleverly


Dol Guldur
Minas Morgul
Beorn's House
Bandit Lair
Gladden Fields
Amon Hen
Dimrill Dale

Play Tips:

Pretty straightforward if you look at the sites: play what's playable at each.  Get lotsa item points.  Kick butt (hopefully).

MP Breakdown:

Character: 10?
Item: 10?
Ally: 1-3
Faction: 3
Total: 24-6?

It needs some work, but you get the idea.

As I understand Challenge decks are limited in the number of rares they can have. But since you're running with that many rings, Rumor of the One would add MPs, plus with Ren's ability to ease corruption, the added CPs wouldn't hurt that much either. Maybe change Beornings (R) for Woodmen (F1). The roll needed is 1 greater, but faction is still in the DG neighbourhood, same as Beornings.

That's a pretty good idea....  Would give another place to play the Bright Gold as well....

On the other hand, the deck is getting so many item points already...  :?

I was testing the deck before playing it on the tourney and i agree that this deck doesn't need beornings, rumours of the one will be much better. Other thing i noted, the deck has only 4 gold rings, in my opinion it should have some more. In hazards, it's an automatick attack strat, but it doesn't have tidings of bold spies !?!? I would put out doors of night, in consecuence nameless thing and true fire-drake too and would put in 3 ToBS, 2 Cave drake and 2 Cave worm. Without ToBS the free/border hold automatic attack combo isn't so effective. The last thing i noted, it has woodmen in deck but doesn't have woodmen town in location deck.

That was my opinion after playing with and against that deck

Why use Hador and no Tormented Earth?

I think that this deck should be better without Hador if the deck not need sorcery, couse Hador is the main character in other Challenge deck...
Forth Eorlingas!
