Bolg actually does about as much epic dueling as any character in the Hobbit trilogy of films. I admit, I never quite got his deck where I wanted it, and when updating this LOTRED section in 2018, I made some changes. This hasn’t been tested in this form so if you play with it, let us know how it goes.
4 HP Each
Weak Melee Minor Deck
Bolg – 12 Talent Cards
A4. If this attack does damage, add 2 to its attack value.
2x Brute Strength
A3. If a defense card is played other than a Power Combat card, it is discarded and the defender takes full damage. Power combat cards are not affected.
A5*. *Add 2 to the attack strength for each of your Orcs that has been destroyed.
Bolg and each of his Orcs may move up to 4 spaces each. Draw a card for each Orc that has been destroyed.
2x Age of the Orc
Bolg heals 3 points of damage. Draw a card for each Orc that has been destroyed.
Notes: His offense is a bit wanting, but he has great staying power and can bring it once his Orcs are killed off.
