An idea for a challenge?

Post by Rouxxor » Mon Feb 12, 2018 12:43 am

I think and play a lot on this game and I love to challenge myself. I also like to interact with other players and help people. So I turn to you to know if there is some problem that you want to share. I will try my best to find a way :). It can either be before the Lure or at the Lure.

An example of what can be exciting:
- Build the best deck possible with only cards in one examplar;
- Build a fellowship of four decks to beat Dol Guldur nightmare;
- Find a solo deck using only cycle 1 and cards from the cycle 5 and beat all quests from cycle 5;
- Build a deck with only rohan or gondor character to beat Pelennor fields

I'm not missing ideas so only tell me about problems that matter for you. My interest in this will be to be able to discuss and help someone ;).
Please don't ask to do something by the negative (like a deck not too strong, not being able to do something). I may spice up some challenge by playing the nightmare version instead of the normal, mostly because all my scenario are made nightmare and un-nightmare them can be long.

dol guldur nightmare is not thiiiis hard with 4 Player (imo). cause u can use vilya, sneak attack ..... solo ist a real nightmare (i made it only with 1 deck, mono-Spirit and near secrecy)

i tried to find a kombo that tries to negate the staging (or reduce the staging as Maximum as possible) my 1. idea was to Play with gildors council and wait no longer, because wait can reduce to 0 gildors council to 1. but wait no longer must be played as reaction at the start of the questphase and the actions comes after that.

so u cannot Combine it with gildors council to get to 0 staging. any idea?

I success nightmare dol guldur with my vilya deck, Caldara and a deck combo love of tales. So with vilya and two decks who receive errata since.

What you try to do is possible using wait no longer in solo. I try to do this using Hama. But while I have great time playing at least one waiting no longer in multiplayer it was harder in solo. The deck wasn't that great in solo, and the errata of Hama force me to rethink the whole deck.
So you need t play wait no longer, one for each player in the game. I can build a solo version, do you prefer to do with the hama errata or without considering it (so I will not playing hama, 3 times is too few on a solo game).

yes, solo is trivial ;)

in multiplayer is interesting. (kombo means "combination of decks", 2-4 decks). and with errata of hama.

there is only one hama, and eldacars is unique. perhaps something with Thurindir (Thurindir) (takes Sammelt Informationen (Gather Information) and everybody can searches a "wait no...".
perhaps in Addition to many Bardin der Galadhrim (Galadhrim Minstrel).

with Der Weisse Rat (The White Council) some "wait" can be reshuffled into the deck.

I never heard of this mean of Kombo. I only know combo, for combination.

I will go with only 2 players since it seem to be more easy. There will be no viable way to not have reinforcement at all during many consecutive turns. Wait no longer is genial but each subsequent exemplar have less chance to reach because you lower the proportion of enemy in the encounter deck.

I don't forgot you and I'm still thinking about what I can do. I haven't find something interesting enough to make me build and test the decks. I recently have been asked was thinking about decklist without attachment, more for solo.

With the new events lore a mono lore + mono tactics (with Amarthuil) seem playable. Do you want to think about the decklist?

i had the same thoughts as i saw the lore-card.

at least with 2 player, it should be possible.

1. idea each of them are monodecks with much recycle

2. idea each of them are dualshpere, perhaps one with gandalf+elrond.

the denethor-deck has no recycle-options, but, if they manage to play all 6 events, i think, thats enough. the gandalfdeck can recycle with hama and book/card. they are expensive and should be played with vilya.

with service of the steward, errand-riders and bifur i think there is many options to get the ressources to the right place (denethor should get the steward, he cann pay to one gondor and bifur in one round).
