[Hero One Ring] Telling Tales by the Fire of Mount Doom

Postby Shapeshifter » Tue Nov 22, 2016 7:49 am

This is the resource part of the One Ring deck I played in the finals of Worlds 2016 (and before – with a few differences – at German Nationals 2010 and Lure 2014).
The special thing about the deck is that it runs to Mount Doom asap and squats there for the rest of the game. It makes great use of Enduring Tales.

PLAYTIPS
The best starting company consists of Aragorn, Bilbo and Fatty. Although the deck can be played in many ways most times I would run to Mount Doom as soon as possible (usually together with Gandalf). There the company finds precious gold rings and the Scroll. The trick is to play Lucky Search while Enduring Tales is in play (allows to discard cards from your hand on top of your play deck). The right timing is very important for the trick to work as you always want to have the items to be the first card you draw from your play deck while doing a Lucky Search. Enduring Tales is probably one of the most underestimated cards because it also protects very well from Rolled Down to the Sea (unless you face several Rolled Downs during a single companies m/h-phase). If you need to draw cards let Aragorn use the Easterling Express (use Master of Esgaroth if available).

Thanks for posting this here and for your tournament report elsewhere. This has to be one of my favorite dunk decks. But I will need a lot of practice in order to play it correctly.

Interesting deck. I'll put this together and attempt to provide some feedback in the future.
