LOTR LCG: The Great Wall of Endless Text

Currently, my main gaming focus is on Lord of the Rings the card game. I feel the need to rant and rave about my strategic and mental transgressions and figure it is better to not clog up the forum with it.

Gloin was the first hero I really liked. He has solid questing and fighting for a reasonable threat. He is a dwarf and synergizes well with many cards. But most of all, with a little healing support, he is a great resource engine. With 3 daughters of the Nimrodel and 3 self preservations, he was reliable in this capacity in a 50 card deck. Frodo was his sidekick, attackers could be ignored and mooched for resources with little worry. If a horrible shadow effect occurred, then the damage could be applied to your threat through Frodo's ability. Add on some dunedain watchers and a hasty stroke or two, and even a direct defense by Gloin himself was safe from the likes of the horrible Sudden Pitfall. Dark Knowledge + Rider of the Mark could further expand this safety net. I began to see enemies in the staging area as cash waiting to be harvested on Gloin. Narvi's belt was a perfect addition to allow for flexible expenditure, although songs worked fine as well. Add on UCed Beravor and card draws were no longer a problem. Access to A Test of Will closed off the remaining hole. Gloin, Frodo, and Beravor - this little engine was THE core deck amongst my decks in my two player games.
