ISILDUR & ELENDIL
Minor Blue Deck
Isildur – 9 Talent Cards
3x LAST ALLIANCE
A5. Move Isildur and all allied characters up to 3 spaces each.
2x COURAGE OF MEN
A4*. Add 2 to the attack damage for each ally adjacent to Isildur.
1x BLADE OF THE HIGH KING
A8. Draw 2 cards.
2x ENCHANTED ARMOR
D7. You may reshuffle your discard pile into your draw pile.
1x LAST HOPE
If Elendil has been destroyed, you may search your draw pile OR discard pile for the BROKEN BLADE card and put it in your hand. If you searched your draw pile, reshuffle it.
Elendil – 4 Talent Cards
A6*. If you already have a NARSIL in your discard pile, attack value is 9.
1x BROKEN BLADE
A2*. *Add 1 for each damage Elendil has taken. If Elendil has been destroyed, Isildur may play this card as his own, and the attack value is 12.
For those last 2 slots, I made my own cards. I used 3 Prince of Men which allow all allies to heal 1hp, draw 1 card and be moved 1 space each. Then I gave Isildur some enchanted armor with a defense of 7 and a way to draw while avoiding every 3 damage.
Thanks James. I’ll go ahead and finish out a draft.
I feel like this is the neglected child of the expansion. 😛
My take is it reminds me a lot of your Obi and Ani deck; as in it’s a deck that doesn’t do much it just beats you ’cause it’s so tough. Isildur has an A8 plus two A6s that are easy to power up and if you kill his tough minor (who has big attacks too) then you have to contend with an A12 that Isildur can search or recycle. And if you ignore Elendil to target Isildur then you have some solid staying power to get over. Their only real weakness is no direct damage, which they don’t really need.
If Elrond and The Balrog weren’t so tough (and if Sauron wasn’t intentional a bad match-up against them) then this would probably be the strongest deck in the expansion right now.
This duo defeated Sauron in combat, so they should be very strong! That stated, there’s not much going on with this deck besides the BROKEN BLADE card and a “leadership” theme I tried to instill. I kind of like the LEADER OF MEN – STRENGTH OF MANY combo but it might be a little too strong.
