Nazgul

From LOTR-TCG Wiki

The race of Nazgûl is restricted to only the Culture Ringwraith.svg Wraith culture, but they make up for that with a variety of strategies and subcultures.

The most prominent Nazgûl strategy in Fellowship Block is beatdown, usually accompanied with Blade Tip (1U209)LOTR-EN01S209.0 card.jpg and Black Breath (1U207)LOTR-EN01S207.0 card.jpg. The largely ineffective corruption angle had not been developed enough to see play.

In Towers Standard, the Nazgûl corruption strategy got a boost with cards outside the culture such as Gollum, Stinker (5R25)LOTR-EN05S025.0 card.jpg and Evil-smelling Fens (5U22)LOTR-EN05S022.0 card.jpg. Largely, however, the Twilight Nazgûl strategy relying on wounding the Ring-bearer was more effective.

Once King Block was released, however, two new Nazgûl strategies emerged; Enduring Nazgûl and Threat Nazgûl. Enduring Nazgûl focused on either corruption with Dark Swooping Shadows (10R58)LOTR-EN10S058.0 card.jpg or beatdown with the strength bonus from Enduring. Enduring decks use cards like Between Nazgûl and Prey (8R67)LOTR-EN08S067.0 card.jpg and Bent on Discovery (1R206)LOTR-EN01S206.0 card.jpg place wounds on those Enduring Nazgul. Threat Nazgul relied on threat adding cards like Úlairë Cantëa, Faster Than Winds (7R211)LOTR-EN07S211.0 card.jpg and There Came a Cry (7C208)LOTR-EN07S208.0 card.jpg, then used those threats to wreak havoc on the fellowship. This strategy often incorporated Morgul Destroyer (7U190)LOTR-EN07S190.0 card.jpg and/or Fat One Wants It (7R57)LOTR-EN07S057.0 card.jpg, Captured by the Ring (7C53)LOTR-EN07S053.0 card.jpg, and Gollum.

After the release of War of the Ring Block, the Forestgûl strategy became a strong choice. Using the new sites and the Forest keyword in conjunction with Lost in the Woods (11U212)LOTR-EN11S212.0 card.jpg and Dark Approach (12R162)LOTR-EN12S162.0 card.jpg, this strategy aimed to play 4 or 5 Fierce Nazgûl at once, hopefully crippling the fellowship for a kill. It also occasionally included Threat Nazgûl concepts for extra killing power. This block also introduced Buckland Homestead (11S230)LOTR-EN11S230.0 card.jpg, which could be recurred by Úlairë Nelya, Third of the Nine Riders (11S222)LOTR-EN11S222.0 card.jpg, bypassing most defenses against condition discard.

In the final sets of the game, no new Nazgûl strategies worth mention were released, though Nazgûl strategies as a whole were improved with cards like Úlairë Lemenya, Eternally Threatening (15R185)LOTR-EN15S185.0 card.jpg, They Feel The Precious (15U183)LOTR-EN15S183.0 card.jpg, and Úlairë Nertëa, Dark Horseman (19P38)LOTR-EN19S038.0 card.jpg. Threat Nazgûl in particular were given boosts, along with corruption getting Ring of Savagery (17R142)LOTR-EN17S142.0 card.jpg.

Overall, Nazgûl are some of the most versatile and strong minions available to Shadow players, though you will need to look out for cards like Terrible and Evil (7R50)LOTR-EN07S050.0 card.jpg, Glorfindel, Revealed in Wrath (9R+16)LOTR-EN09S016.0 card.jpg, and Flaming Brand (2R32)LOTR-EN02S032.0 card.jpg.

Names[edit]

While the Witch-king is one of the main antagonists, The Lord of the Rings never names to any of the other Ringwraiths, and instead refers to them only as a collective. Tolkien only named one other Nazgûl in his writing: Khamûl the Easterling in Unfinished Tales, a book compiled by his son based on his notes.

As Decipher only had rights to what was in The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit, they couldn't have used Khamûl regardless (albeit they did make a nod to it on Úlairë Attëa, The Easterling (2U82)LOTR-EN02S082.0 card.jpg), and this wouldn't have helped name the other seven in any case. Using the names created by previous Tolkien licensors like Iron Crown's Middle-Earth Role-Playing System wasn't practical since it had to go through past the Tolkien Estate and the previous licensors for permission, and risked running into the same issue of fans unhappy with non-canonical original names. Decipher's interim solution in playtesting was "First Nazgûl," "Second Nazgûl," etc. but that wasn't very interesting.

Eventually, one of the playtesters at Decipher suggested taking the generic names and translating them into (neo)-Quenya, the scholarly language of the elves, using a then-recently-published guide to Quenyan ordinals[1]. The singular word Úlairë was derived from The Silmarillion's Quenya name for the Nazgûl, Úlairi, and then each Nazgûl had its number attached accordingly: "Second Nazgûl" becomes "Úlairë Attëa", "Third Nazgûl" becomes "Úlairë Nelya", and so on. (The Witch-king of course is the First Nazgûl, which presumably would have been Úlairë Minya had it been necessary.) The ordinals used in order are Attëa, Nelya, Cantëa, Lemenya, Enquëa, Otsëa, Toldëa, and Nertëa[2].
