[Balrog resources; vs. minion] Wolf Cheeze

Post by Zarathustra » Mon Aug 29, 2005 11:30 am

This is the deck I planned to play vs other minions at US Nats, but I never got the chance: all my opponents were either hero or fw.



2 Foul-Smelling Paste

Characters in Deck:

3 The Balrog


3 Down Down to Goblin Town
2 Hidden Ways
3 Crept Along Carefully
3 Dark Tryst
2 Voices of Malice
2 Great Shadow
2 Weigh All Things to a Nicety
2 We Have Come to Kill

2 Regiment of Black Crows
1 The Warg-King
1 Stinker
3 War-Wolf
3 War-Warg

1 Palantir of Elostirion

Play Tips:

Send Umaguar, Doeth, and a Hill-Troll to Weathertop first turn with Down Down to Goblin Town.  Get Wolves.  Send Bolg and Orc-Tracker to Ost-In-Edhil.  Get wolves.  Whenever you draw the Palantir, send the sage company there: just one :w: so no worries.  Get more wolves.  With Bolg's company, get more wolves.

Did I mention wolves?

With the Balrog's company: squat.  Get Buthrakaur and two hill-trolls.  If necessary, have them get more wolves.  Wolves.

Weigh for Orcs of Moria or Ice-Orcs and Threats.  If you don't get the Hog, weigh for A Few Recruits and Sudden Call.

After you have a bunch of character and wolf points, call the game.  Usually 4 turns.

In case it wasn't clear yet: wolves.

Sorry for the cheeze.  Fortunately, I didn't actually play it on anyone.

MP Breakdown:

Character: 15
Ally: 12
Item: 3
Faction: 3-4
Misc: 0-1

Total: 33-35

PS: Pray they're not playing Dwarves / Maia.  But of course, no one in the US besides me does....

Maybe I missed it, but were you playing some wolves with that deck? ;)
