Re: 741-play Smaug

OVERVIEW Smaug the Golden gained 32 MPs, which he lost 2 MP from too much in Items. Thus, he was four MP short of tying “Mouth” for the last Power Deck slot. A few more Character MPs could be gained with 12 GI available. Both Dragon factions were killed. Thus, active movement may be needed to troubl...

Re: 641-Smaug_Spawn

The updated deck file is in the first thread.

Resources were changed little. However, the hazard deck was taken from Ardagor.
All things Trolls are not targeting Lord Thorin. Smaug likes to boast while his trolls roast.

Re: Region Movement - 2 Companies Travelling to the Same Site

Great use of logic and mastery of the rules. I think METW had its rules so that the trouble of using the same face-down site card brought issues of fairness. There could be three companies moving and one squatting. So only two face-down cards are used. The player can be sly and change his mind on wh...

Re: 642-Throkmaw_Roadblock

The updated deck is in the first thread. Stalk the Halls is the biggest resource change. Throkmaw can hide down there playing Iron-shield of Old, Dwarf-chopper and Sulfur-spawn. He might take Talmog so to get those items. I removed A Nice Place to Hide for World Gnawed by the Nameless, Caverns Uncho...

Re: 742-play Throkmaw

OVERVIEW Throkmaw finished strong with 29 MP. Five MPs were lost when items were not stored. Now, there was a prisoner with Hunters and Slayers carrying Bloodspike and Black-mail Coat. I wonder if that event “gives” those cards to the storer. If so, then Throkmaw could have sent that company to a Dr...

Re: 647-Lomaw_Demons

Of course, I updated the deck after modifying the other Dragon-lords. Now much has changed. Ulukai of Morgoth is now given to Scatha. The travel to Gundabad is bad enough,but now Share the Treasure is included to cancel any Dwarf attack. The site to play the item is Framsburg. I added Memories of Ol...

643-Scatha_Spawn

An old Dragon from the brood of Glaurung has awakened in the North. Treasure and conquered lands have ever been in his dreams. Now, he will gather the minds of those touched by Mordo to complete this goal. Caves will become his new home - caves that hold wealth from the First Age. Thranduil’s Halls ...

726-play Fankil

OVERVIEW This new avatar’s debut was a success in terms of playing resources and earning MPs. He was the best new avatar and had 40 MP after Turn 19. But the fan vote uncovered flaws in the avatar. It is true more needs to be done to bring more flavor to Fankil. May be he can be researched for a pla...

Re: 723-play Felagrog

OVERVIEW The deck unfolded as expected. Not much slowed this player except for tribes of dwarves on the front porch. When rolling a two against Invade Their Domain makes the biggest enemy of a deck, then you know easy street is your best friend. A mountain of 20 MPs were gained in the miscellaneous ...

Re: 623-Felagrog-DragonPlay

Here is the update to the deck of Felagrog. Some changes were made. First, I think I am using a bit more balrog-specific characters to avoid discarding items due to body checks. Second, I moved the tapping of sites south. Now, all the sites south of Under-leas are the domain of this player - each wi...

Re: 507-Dragon Lord changes

There are now four Dragon-lords in the game: Scatha, Throkmaw, Lomaw, and Smaug. Six mode events in MEGW will be evenly distributed among them. Each avatar will have three mode cards. Yes, Stalk the Halls will be used. I thought long how I can use that mode with Felagrog so close and so strong. In r...

Re: 751-play Mouth

The Mouth is no longer a "player" in the Avatar Decks. He is replaced by Scatha the Worm. Mouth of Sauron is now used in the Necromancer's deck as a valuable hazard. Lidless Eye deck I think if I got that right. But I will make a Power Deck for the Mouth. + + OVERVIEW This deck seemed slow and bland...

Re: 732-play Khamual

OVERVIEW This was a fun deck using many sorcery events and far-ranging companies. Yet, only once did Khamual venture to a non-Darkhaven site besides CvCC at Barad-dur. I made a goof combining Aransiros with the BRW Grimburgoth without realizing the penalty. He gained the most MPs of all minion playe...

Re: 632-Khamual

DECK CHANGES from 40 player fate deck Keep in mind I think the minions have an advantage of gaining MPs over the hero players. Therefore, I want to add complexity to a minion’s deck if possible. This deck is complex with movements and prisoners. Dogrib has been removed for Eradan with the Helm of Ma...

Re: 753-play Azog

OVERVIEW My assessment is positive for this shape-shifting player. First, the MEBA Bolg was in play, then I used the MEDF character, which is better. I decided to not use MEBA non-unique orcs to show some love to the MELE orcs. 27 MPs were earned including Scatha Roused being unplayable after the dr...
