    hehe ;)

    I generally trade my foils for cards I need to complete my sets, both in SW and Lord. Never cared much for foils. But I really like the Aragorn. So does my gf.

    I initially didn't care much for foils either, but once I got everything I needed for my decks, I started to collect foils.

    I went undefeated in a tourney yesterday with my Noble Leaders/Morgul Orcs deck. It was fun.

    Cool :) I've never been undefeated ever, not in SW, not in Lord.

    I've gone undefeated many times, but doing it with Twilight Nazgûl makes it even more sweet.

    You know what you need to do then? Get all your stuff back so you can make a wider variety of decks! If all you play is twilight Nazgûl, then your meta will adapt to that and beat you nearly every time.

    so you guys know incase you didn't see the new FAQ there are 4 more cards added to the X-list and 1 removed.

    The one removed is Uruk Regular and the 4 added are The Palintir of Orthanc(3R67), Relics of Moria(1R195), Bill The Pony(0P2 or 3U106) Frying Pan (3C108).

    I think Pan and Relics shouldn't be on the list.

    I would have to disagree. A friend of mine has a deck using the shire coutryside with brace of connies and frodo's cloak to remove burdens thus be able to heal ppl thus machine gun frying pan. and to be honest the same thing can be said for enquie with not easily destroyed. which is why I am so glad that he is out of the standard enviroment. Too Abusive!! As for relics I can very much understand it. Moria is by far KING when it comes to twilight pool adding. 4 armories down with relics remove 2 to play a scimatar from your discard pile and you net gained 2 twilight.

    Well yeah, without the Pan, Moria becomes superpowers, so Relics needed to be X'ed to balance things out.

    Well moria still has plundered armories which basically says that if you kill one of the minions with a weapon I can play that weapon on another minion that doesn't have a weapon (twilight -1). thus getting 4 more twilight and getting to draw a card if with the scimmy.

    Basically, They Are Coming and Host of Thousands became a whole lot more useful, in order to get the Scavengers back. Maybe Threat of the Unknown will see more use too.

    Your forgetting about one particular cards Bib, Foul Things. costs 2 twilight but you can get ANY moria minion so you can get that cave troll or balrog back for mega hurtage...

    The problem is, it costs 2. Fluffy and Smoky are expensive enough as it is.

    Ooh, we just got our first look at the Army of the Dead! Shadow Host looks interesting, but without knowing exactly what the rest of them do, I'll hold off on my final judgment.

    Plus we don't know what that "Enduring" Keyword does. we don't even know if it's loaded or unloaded. though I have a feeling it's gonna be loaded and have to do with something about staying "alive" even if overwhelmed.

    Um, we most certainly do know what Enduring does. It means the character gets +2 strength for each wound on him. Shelob is also enduring, as are the new Nazgûl.

    It was spoiled on Radio Free Decipher several weeks ago.

    Yay, Corsairs! We likes them, yes, Precious.

    I agree wholeheartedly. Maybe just maybe I can get a way to use harsh tounges. for some reason it didn't work right for me or early enough...

    Yeah, I've never been able to get Harsh Tongues to work right, either. Too long to set it up, and it's too vulnerable to condition removal.

    All I can say is hot damn on the corsairs...those boys are gonna be some nasty buggers to add to the southron threat deck. But just what sauron needs MORE 20 stregth minions. the Army of the dead looks great to use. Enduring I really like that keyword. is it dangerous? yes. but it's totally worth it in the long run...
