Solid expansion for the lotr lcg
on 17 April 2012
This is the third expansion in the Mirkwood cycle in the lord of the rings lcg. I am not going to list the cards however the most interesting are
-Prince Imrahil New Leadership hero, has the ability to read once per turn when a character leaves play (good combos with sneak attack and disposable allies). 2 Will 3 Atk 2 Def 4 Hp
-Radagast A neutral ally, one of the Astari and known to be a friend to the animals of middle earth. Radagast has the ability to accumulate resources much like a hero which can then be spent exclusively on creature allies. He is a solid inclusion in an eagle deck. Costs 5 and it does take him 5 turns to pay that back however he can help in the late game to pay for expensive eagle cards. Alternatively he can use his resources to heal creatures.
2 Will 1 Atk 1 Def 3Hp
-Haldir of Lorien Lore Ally, A very solid ally for the Lore sphere Costs 4 but comes with Ranged and sentinel making him very solid in multiplayer games. 2 will 2 Atk 2 def 3hp
- Llandroval, Tactics ally. A cost of 5 eagle with the ability "After a hero is destroyed return Llandroval to its owners hand to put that hero back into play with 1 damage token". Solid ability and good stats but a high cost card and I have never managed to use that ability so far.
1 Will 3 Atk 1 Def 4 Hp
The scenario in this pack is excellent and focuses on assisting a wounded eagle (wilyador) while collecting Athelas plants from the encounter deck in order to heal him. He acts as an Ally card and takes 2 damage each turn (also treachery cards often target him) He has 20hp but this can drain away quickly so healing him is essential.
The quest is very thematic and a lot of fun. Possibly the best set in the mirkwood cycle.
