[Fallen Pallando] Faction man in Gondor

Post by Bandobras Took » Sat Apr 30, 2005 3:22 pm

Here's one that's been floating around in the back of my head:

Starting Party:
Imrahil w/Thrall of the Voice
Firiel w/Thrall of the Voice
Denethor II w/Arcane School
Ostisen
Uchel

Other Characters:
Beregond
Damrod
Anborn
Boromir
Faramir
Adrazar

Allies:
2 x Noble Hound

Factions:
Men of Anfalas
Men of Lamedon
Men of Lebennin
Knights of Dol Amroth
Rangers of Ithilien

Items:
Palantir of Minas Tirith
2 x Sword of Gondolin
Sapling of the White Tree
Narsil

Stage Resources:
Pallando's Apprentice
Truths of Doom
Never Refuse
Wizard's Trove
Guarded Haven

Other Resources:
Reforging
Anduril
2 x Poison of His Voice
2 x Driven as By Madness
Poisonous Despair
2 x Spying Out the Land
2 x Words of Menace and Deceit
2 x Ready to His Will

Important Sideboard Cards:
The White Tree
Prophet of Doom
Stone of Erech
Mischief in a Mean Way

Basically, since Pallando's the Faction Man, this gets all those nice 2-MP factions in Gondor. Firiel does a spectacular job influencing any of them. The Anduril combo is useful for repeatedly untapping a Dunadan as well as giving Imrahil an impressive prowess.

The truly fun part, though, would be to play against a wizard doing a "Return of the King Deck" because:

1) If Denethor II is in your party, he can't play Return of the King,
2) If you Guarded Haven the Vale of Erech, Aragorn II can't play Army of the Dead, and
3) It's entirely possible that you'll plant your White Tree before he does.

The deck should stand well on its own, though. Ready to His Will the inevitable Slayers/Assassins; if your opponent doesn't play any, Lond Galen and Henneth Annun can be used to get your ally points. One slight problem is reaching the 10 Stage Points to play Mischief, but that's why Mischief is in the Sideboard.

great deck, but how do you plan on playing a Palantir at Blue Mountain Dwarf-hold without Double Dealing or any hazard (heart grown cold)????

I am just curious

Wrong deck. I realized that flaw at work the other night, and am about to modify that deck (Saruman seeing things).

Mishcief in a Mean Way to turn Vale of Erech into a Wizardhaven.  But it should probably go in the sideboard, as well, come to think of it.  I made this deck in my younger days, when I was not nearly so skilled at losing. :)
