I don't really understand the reason for the change to the first part? The old version was greater than 8 with a +5 for a Dunadan and the new version is just greater than 2 and only by a Dunadan. If anything the second way is more tricky since only a Dunadan can do it...

The faction also gives 2 MPs.

Also, I remember your deck doing pretty well versus mine (only 1 or 2 MPs in it at the end). Have you played other games with this deck?

I must say I'm not overly keen on prowess bonuses being rather arbitrarily awarded. Maybe there's another way of looking at the problems associated with this deck type?

One problem I see is clearly the lack of any noteworthy prowess boosting items for travelling in and around Gondor - for example, the Broad-headed Spear is only worth a paltry 1 MP. How about some event or something that increased the MP and CPs of the Spear by 1 point? Or something that makes them more playable?

Hey Jambo,

In our game I was playing To Satisy at tapped free-holds, and multiple copies. I've now realized it's illegal to use the card that way, and To Satisfy was the whole brunt of the deck.

I rewrote the first playability line for one reason: 1) It saves card space! But also because it seemed weird that it was still technically possible for a Wizard or Orc to get the faction in play. But maybe this isn't a problem. I'm not tied to the change.

It's true that changing the MP value of the lower-valued major items could be one solution. (Though this would necessitate a Catch an Elusive Scent type of deck then, right?) But I don't think it would be as thematic as gathering information and taking prisoners. I also think the prowess bonus is pretty limited, since it's only at a site--and only particular ones that match your company (thus, you can't really chase an opponent). But I guess what I need to do is play you guys again with the new deck, or observe someone else's version of it (then we might think of alternate bolstering methods).
