    Hey Dan, Are there any APs that you typically don’t use any cards out of? When building your deck files I am noticing that you have a real affinity for the HoN expansion…I was curious, are there any expansions that you would not waste money on buying because it really doesn’t gain you anything beyond inventory?

    • Beorn says:

      Yes, Heirs of Numenor has some really great cards, especially for Tactics and Lore. In general I would say that I use most of the APs. As for expansions, Khazad-dum also has some good cards, especially Bifur, Erebor Record-Keeper, and Erebor Battle Master.

      It’s tough to single out APs to skip, honestly. Even APs with “weaker” heroes like Brand son of Bain (As one of few Tactics heroes with 2 Willpower, I think he’s actually underrated) still include some really great cards like Gildor Inglorion and The Riddermark’s Finest. Also the 4 songs included in the first 5 APs of Shadows of Mirkwood (Journey to Rhosgobel has Radagast instead of a song) really help with multi-sphere decks. Dwarrowdelf is no different, in fact the cards only get better as the cycle progresses.

      It might just be the way that I design decks, but I find that I use every AP and expansion in the game. Sometimes, as was the case with Renewed Friendship, just to prove that an overlooked card can be really useful in the right deck.

      If you really want to limit your purchases, I would recommend picking two spheres and building your decks around those for now. This will make it a lot easier to decide which APs you can hold off on purchasing. Also, if you aren’t really a fan of Dwarves, KD is something else that you can obviously do without.

    What I have been trying to understand is why people don’t use mono decks more often. I should preface this by reviewing that in the rules it clearly states that you can only pay for a card if it matches THAT SPHERE. So why would you play with three different sphere heroes? That would mean you would only receive 1 resource per sphere per round. That isn’t enough for the vast majority of cards in this game. And isn’t resources like the money in LoTR LCG? I mean you can’t play most cards without enough resources and those cards completely aid your actions (questing, defending or attacking). So why wouldn’t you run a really tight deck in ONE sphere? Usually I run one Spirit and Tactics double-fisted decks and usually my wife runs a Lore deck. This way with a few “song” attachments that helps generate even more resources, just about any and all cards are available to us, thus increasing our chances to beat the game. On a side note; allies seem to be key to this game as well because they generate much more numbers in actions on a consistent basis for your deck. But back to the mono deck issue; Why do people mix spheres when it seems to be a more difficult and a higher percentage of losing? Doesn’t that make your chances of playing more cards more difficult?

    If you have only one core set, the passage through mirkwood cycle, and the hobbit expansions whats the best decks you could come up with? I suck at making decks and by the time i do make one I’m too stressed or tired to play.

    • Beorn says:

      With that card pool a Dwarf deck is a logical choice. Something around Dain Ironfoot should work. There are a bunch of useful Dwarf cards in Khazad-dum deluxe box, but lacking that you might have to splash a few non-Dwarf cards. Éowyn as one of your heroes is an option. Not as thematic, but it gives you access to A Test of Will and allows you to dedicate most of your allies to focus on combat.

    Hi Beorn.

    I really like your decks but i have a hard time figuring out which one applies best to which scenario (since there are now so many).

    Any good tips for me to know which deck i should use for any given scenario?



    • Beorn says:

      I’m glad that you enjoy the decks. At this point in the game there is such a wide variety of quests, some with very specific constraints on which decks will excel. Even a high level categorization of quests would be a monumental task, unfortunately. If there are a few decks in particular which you like, I can point out the kinds of quests for which they are well-suited. I’m sorry that I can’t provide more specific answers, but between the number of decks and the number of quests, this is kind of a needle in a haystack problem.
