A few notes: Bid 4 or 5 to go first. Start everybody except Aragorn and then pull him if you get the Riddermark. If you don’t, start Aragorn and hope Sam shows up in good time. Your free peoples deck can move two in the first turn and then can rely on the Dunlends to slow up your opponent. This is one of the few free peoples decks I’ve seen in recent time that can fellowship win.
As for the dunlends, your strategy is pretty straight forward. Use the War Club and the Pillagers to strip away your opponent’s possessions, so that the big boys (Horde and Band) can score some overwhelms. This deck is remarkably good at it and even managed to take out a Lord Of Gondor in tourney play. Sites 5 and 6 are usually good kill sites thanks to Rabble Rouser and Dark Fury. Don’t be deceived though. This deck doesn’t Shadow win too often, but it does force the fellowship into a crawl and will kill them if they move too quickly. Overall, it’s a lot of fun and catches people off guard in the current Uruk happy environment. Good luck in Vegas and keep PSQing.
