I just finished my first game of Road to Rivendell and I have new love for Dunnedain Watcher. I think this is the first time I ever added her to one of my decks (did so because I knew this adventure pack has some nasty shadow effects) and she came through in flying colors. I had 1 hit point left on Arwen and drew a shadow card that said deal 1 damage to every ally and was able to discard the Watcher to save Arwen and ended up winning a few rounds later. For 3 resources you get a 1,1,1 card and a great backstop against a nasty shadow effect. I think she would also be good in JtR.
Just got my Road to Rivendell deck yesterday. Two cards that jumped out immediately at me just screaming to be played together in my dwarf deck is Hailing of Stones and Lure of Moria. Can't wait to play this combo in my dwarf deck.
yeah scouts died more times than ive had cups of coffee
I'd be interested to challenge myself to somehow build a deck in which the scouts don't die, but do the killing. I feel so sorry for them. Makes me wonder why Rohan keeps agreeing to send them along with my groups. Or why the scouts volunteer in the first place. 'No-one has ever survived these missions? Count me in!'
ha....they must be going for the rider of the month award...all trying soo hard
