[fallen; vs hero] A different take on Fallen Radagast

Post by Zarathustra » Sun May 02, 2004 1:01 pm

Beating the living crap out of your opponent is always fun. Especially when you do it with your own characters. This Fallen Radagast deck lets you do that:

1 Orcrist
1 Wormsbane
1 Palantir of Elostirion

1 Skinbark
1 Tom Bombadil
1 Regiment of Black Crows
1 Blackbole
1 The Warg King
2 War-Warg
2 War-Wolf
1 Radagast's Blackbird

1 Misty Mountain Wargs
1 Wargs of the Forochel
1 Weigh All Things to a Nicety

1 Longbottom Leaf
2 Bold Thrust
2 Dark Tryst
2 I'll Report you
2 Swift Strokes
2 Threats
2 Voices of Malice

1 Great Patron

------------------------------------------------------------------------

The starting company is:
Ugluk, Lagduf, Ulkaur the Tongueless, Mionid, and Dorelas. The stage cards are Bad Company and Master of Shapes. Dorelas sits around at the White Towers telling nasty stories and eventually putting Halbarad and/or Ioreth under his DI. They also grab the Palantir for +1 hand size. Meanwhile, Radagast runs back and forth between Wellinghall and Old Forest, drawing a ton of cards and trying to pick up Tom and Skinbark. At the same time, your uglies are either (preferably both) chasing down your opponent to slay his hobbits or (and) picking up some wolf allies, threatening wolf factions (with the help of the warg-king himself), and stealing the most-often-played hero items (i.e. wormsbane and orcrist). Feel free to have Radagast join in the cvcc fun with Tombo and Skinbark.

Key sideboards stuff includes:

1 A Panoply of Wings (for the Blackbird to influence in case you miss your wolf factions)
2 Marvels Told (Bring 'em Over with the Longbottom Leaf)
1 Old Friendship (Radagast is his own best friend! Helps vs that nasty Inner Rot)
1 Long Grievous Siege (to kill the Rangers of the North or something)
1 Sack Over the Head (Added CvCC fun)
1 Minion Arkenstone (vs Dwarves -- nuff said)
1 A Merrier World (If you kill a nazgul with Radagast on the way out of Rhosgobel, you'll be glad it's worth 5 mps... also good for cvcc kills)
1 Girdle of Radagast
1 Legacy of Smiths

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Enjoy!

Congrats Mark, a non-boring Fallen Radagast deck! :D :D Wouldn't it be great to use this vs. a Cheddargast squatter to wipe out the static companies? :mrgreen:

I'm just not sure the Merrier World also helps with CvCC kills, though... :?

Yes, as long as they werent (as usual) at the Old Forest or Wellinghall... nasty nasty auto-attacks at those sites for overt companies....

Good point. Well, it would help for creature kills either way.

Another nice thing about this deck: Skin-changers cannot be used to send you back! You're overt, so they'd have to attack!

There's also the Weathertop squatter (wolves/WH factions etc.) that would be a ripe target for this deck, especially as you can play some of your own wolves while you're at it!

If you're lucky, your opponent might also throw a Cave-drake at you thinking it's a trophy at worst (because he sees the orcs/trolls) and then you thank him for the MP :D
