Re: Smokerings

I'm not entirely certain I agree with that; community desires don't always create the best possible playing environment. Very often, this is seen in a desire to nerf cards rather than to actually come up with counterstrategies against them. That is also a very importand thing to consider, I agree.

Re: MELE Rules That Do Not Apply To Fallen Wizards

I'm not sure that ignoring rules we don't like is the way to go in achieving consistency in the game. I'd also love to have the original designer's input on the rules and cards, but until we do, I hesitate to say what ICE did or did not want or support. All we have to work with are what the rules a...

Re: MELE Rules That Do Not Apply To Fallen Wizards

I may be wrong because there are not that many FW decks out there that play with Bad Company. I have a very strong feeling, however, that nobody (except Bandobras Took :) ) ever thought about the following possibilities: Fallen Wizards have no limitation on how many leaders may be in a company outsi...

Re: [FALLEN GANDALF] Orc Scouts (without Wizard)

Do you think this is something we should address while cleaning up the rules? It seems inappropriate to have a card not count as a hazard in a deck where the card can only be played as a hazard. Well, the Dream Card rules already address this issue: Agent characters that are not of the same race as...

Re: Smokerings

This is probably another case of that the rules actually say something different from what everybody plays for 20 years.
It should be definitely decided upon by the Net Rep Team. I think there is also something like a "rule of habit" that should weigh heavily before making such a big change.

Re: MELE Rules That Do Not Apply To Fallen Wizards

There doesn't need to be. This is what the rules say. If you find rules that say something else, feel free to point them out. I suggest that this should be discussed and decided upon by the Net Rep Team, though. What the rules actually say is one thing. Another thing is what is accepted by the comm...

Re: [FALLEN GANDALF] Orc Scouts (without Wizard)

Yes, Baduila is meant to be played as an agent hazard. He counts as a character (not as a hazard) for deck construction but cannot be played as such in a FW deck.

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

Against wizards and fallen wizards I played a grab bag hazard strategy with lots of Nazgûl (I played 7) and other hazards with a good playability (like agents, the usual Assassins, Sellswords and drakes, River, maybe some corruption) too speed up your deck. The Nazgûl are played as permanent events ...

Re: [FALLEN GANDALF] Orc Scouts (without Wizard)

This deck is designed for 2-deck games. I remove Ugluk and Halbarad in any case, Arinmir can be a substitute for Annalena if opponent plays her in the starting company.

[FALLEN GANDALF] Orc Scouts (without Wizard)

This is the ressource part of the deck I played in the finals of Worlds 2017 in Cologne. It is the deck vs. Hero and Fallen Wizard but the deck vs. Minion differs only slightly. The whole deck lists may be downloaded at www.fallen-gandalf.net. The main idea of this deck is that you fetch hero ressou...

Re: Worlds 2017 - Cologne, Germany

Nice reports! Thanks guys. I have not much to add. One curiosity about my game vs. Wolfgang: We both played with Short Rest but the first A Short Rest was played during our last turn. :shock: The finals were a bit disappointing for me. Well, I was only a substitute for Eric who refused to play. I sa...

Re: DC Poll: Minor Item Playability

For me it is option 1. Minor items are still very rare. You will usually not find a Dagger of Westernesse in Lake-town or an Elven-cloak in Bree (and then burn it down :twisted: ). On the other hand Cram or Horn of Arnor will most likely be found in Free-holds :wink: Be sure to apply any of the poll...

Will we see deck lists?
I asked all the finalists to send me their decklists. I will upload them on my webpage (fallen-gandalf.net) as soon as I receive them. This will also include my avatarless Fallen Gandalf deck with Bad Company (though it was definitely the wrong deck for the finals :( )
