Ent

From LOTR-TCG Wiki

Ents are the race of animated tree-like creatures who tend Fangorn Forest in The Lord of the Rings. All Ents are Culture Gandalf.svg Gandalf-culture cards. Debuting in The Two Towers with a paired set of Ally cards for Treebeard, Ents would gradually grow into a dominant subculture with additional cards being added in Battle of Helm's Deep and - you guessed it - Ents of Fangorn.

The Ent Horde start[edit]

There is an (in)famous eight-character Ent starting Fellowship in Expanded, played in this order:

You can also run just Merry, Pippin, Quickbeam, and a two-cost companion of your choice, if you prefer to not be vulnerable to Úlairë Enquëa, Lieutenant of Morgul (1U231)LOTR-EN01S231.0 card.jpg at site 2!

Any Merry, and Pippin, and Quickbeam are the closest you can come to this start in any format that doesn't include Rise of Saruman.

Not to be confused with tree, a separate race that only appears on one card, Huorn (9R25)LOTR-EN09S025.0 card.jpg.
