Well it’s been a while since my last installment so to the whole three of you out there who compose my loyal fan base, my deepest apologies. Since my last article, we’ve endured the horror of world championships and the joy of the new Two Towers set release.

So how’s it work you ask? Well the Dwarves act as the hammer and forge that crafts your shadowy Uruk weapon. Without giving your opponent much in the way of twilight, your fellowship deck quickly searches through and stocks up your hand. The goal is to see that your Shadow hand is 6 or more minions every single time. After you control a few sites and the costs begin to drop and the special abilities soar, your opponent will be watching his companions drop like flies. With a guaranteed Saruman, KOI at site 5 and then again back for the finale at site 9 (at a –2 cost) while only needing to give him one spot in your deck, the corrupted one is guaranteed to be there, giving his approval to your opponent’s demise.
