So I've only just started to explore this cycle starting with the HoN deluxe expansion. I've had a chance to check out these player cards & it certainly seems like the design is geared towards mono-sphere more than the Mirkwood & Khazad-Dum cycles.
Do people agree with this? I'm not really a fan of the mono-spheres...
I'm not sure if there's anything to disagree with - Mono sphere decks were very explicitly one of the design features of the player cards from the cycle. At the time of release it was very fun as a solo player to be able to beat Into Ithlien and Siege of Cair Andros with a single monosphere Tactics deck.
