Deck: Gluttony

Bombur with food

After seeing the new Bombur hero from the upcoming second Hobbit expansion, and with inspiration from Ian of Tales from the Cards, I have decided to build this very silly deck. With attachments like Cram, Miruvor, and Good Meal, along with events like Second Breakfast, the game now has some cards that really capture the sense of fun, and enjoyment of life, that is found throughout Tolkien’s books. This deck is an attempt to distill those concepts into a, hopefully, cohesive whole.

So think of this deck not in terms of its power (or lack thereof), but more as a fun diversion that relishes some of the thematic aspects of the game. If Elrond and Dain decks are the main courses on your Lord of the Rings menu, this deck is more of an appetizer, or perhaps a dessert. So, bon Appétit!

    I love it! Only problem is I could never play this deck because I would get too hungry. This game definitely needs a Turkey Leg attachment though.

    Maybe we’ll see some honey cakes and mead with the next Hobbit expansion!

      I certainly hope so. I would hate to have to call a bear conclave in Roseville MN! On a gluttony-related note, I want them to print a Lembas card. Maybe a Lore attachment in the same style of Miruvor only with different choices. Also, Gimli would always need to discard two of them to get the effects…
