An invaluable card in most [moria] decks, Host of Thousands essentially serves as a proxy minion, as the card itself is free. It has great versatility however, as it can play any minion in the discard pile, allowing you to retrieve whatever is most appropriate for the situation - Goblin Runner if there is little twilight, Goblin Patrol Troop if there is too much twilight, Goblin Scavengers if you need weapons, or Troll's Keyward if you have a Cave Troll. It is also immune to effects such as Curse Their Foul Feet and Sting. The only problem with this card is if you draw it too early, as there will be little (if any) minions in your discard pile.

Strengths and Weaknesses[edit]

Strong Versus...[edit]

  • Works well against almost any deck, due to its great flexibility

Weak Versus...[edit]

  • Event-!hate (Legolas, Dauntless Hunter or Gandalf, Wise Guide)
  • Largely ineffective card in the early game; however, [Moria] has several great cycling options

Note this deck's strategy--it combines a large Shadow side with speed cycling cards such as They Are Coming. Goblin Scimitar is the main card-drawing engine, with Goblin Armory and Goblin Runner generating twilight for key minions such as Moria Archery Troop.
