After my seeing my article of Hobbit-related custom cards, a reader by the name of John Michel was inspired to make some cards of his own. I enjoy sharing my ideas with fellow fans of the game, but it is especially nice to see others inspired to create. In particular, a Tactics version of Eowyn is a card which I have always wanted to see. Her existing Spirit hero is no doubt a powerful card, but I could never see her facing down the Witch-king of Angmar.
I quite like John Michel’s version, and the Spirit Merry card that he designed to accompany her is wonderfully thematic. One the details of the design that I particularly appreciate is how well Eowyn pairs with Théoden, a hero that still seems incomplete with the current card pool. Merry’s ability is focused but useful and Spirit and Tactics make a great combination for Rohan. I am excited to see this archetype improved with the Voice of Isengard and its cycle. What alternate version of existing heroes have you always wanted to see? Share your thoughts in the comments below and thanks again to John Michel for contributing his custom cards!
