Have to admit, this is a pretty awesome deck.  I played against Brian's version on GCCG and if you're an unsuspecting hero company not using a Gates of Morning strategy and with less than 3 twilights, you're in BIG trouble!

Even with GoM and 3 twilight, you're still in for some trouble, just not as much  :twisted:

I never played it!

When I get some time I'll put it up, but until then: it was just a generic Balrog wolf deck.
