Ok so I know that there are lots of new idea floating around for BOHD but I am just going to focus on one today. The great forces of Mordor. Also the fighting elves of Lorien

Saurons abilities to add burdens are what make him so great. And this is the shadow side of the deck. The strategy for the shadow is simply this, if they have a big fellowship then you hope to add burdens with thin and stretched. If the have a tank deck then you put a desperate defense on the tank and no more tank. And the whole Gollum thing is just adding burdens and making Gollum huge! Its pretty scary to have a 12 strength Gollum coming at you. So just try to add lots of burdens and then exert to kill his companions. Plus with three Enquea’s your bound to draw one, so that should take care of a few companions

Shoot shoot shoot. That is what this deck does. If you opponent is playing with weapons then Taurnil can take care of that. Either they play more minions or they play weapons. This deck usually pumps out 5 archery a turn. (With out the archery events) but on top of that you have blades drawn and that makes your enemies big cave troll taken down by a Lorien swordsman.

So I hope this little deck will make you think and hopefully you might even play with this deck. I think that this deck can be tweaked to any one liking. (Unless you really hate elves)
