Balrog decks?

Post by Bob e Sardaukar » Tue Nov 14, 2017 8:00 am

Someone needs to give me a breakdown on them. Are they effective? What types are there? Weaknesses? Ty.

Sorry I can’t provide much of a response because I haven’t yet built one myself.

I do know, however, that they can be effective because it’s not unusual to see one place high in tournaments.

I will ask Pawel if he can chime in as I believe he has a competitive Balrog deck.

I've attached three Balrog decks that I downloaded from back when it was still active. Not sure exactly where they're from or how good they are, but thought they might be useful.

Thank you for the replies. Yes I learned more from the challenge decks pdf gave me a better understanding how Balrog decks run let alone fallen wizards. Is dunking the ring viable in these types of decks?

And how about anti-Balrog hazard decks?

Don't really exist. First off, one does not know one is playing vs. Balrog, you make hazards vs. general minion. Secondly, Balrog decks vary, some are fully Under-deeps, some roam above ground, some have an active Balrog but most a squatting one.

In the meta-game, most Balrog decks currently operate above ground and in Eriador. But they might pay a visit to the Under-leas for Ancient Black Axe, or to surface site factions. So, a few Maia's, Arthadan Rangers, Nameless Things in the mix with your normal vs. minion hazards.

Or play DC games, you can add a special anti Balrog 10 hazard deck (like vs. FW) :wink:
