Troll of Cirith Gorgor is a prime example of Decipher throwing all power-considerations out the window for their Mount Doom set. This minion is frightening under normal circumstances, but tailor a deck around it and it turns into an absolute monster. You see, the wording of its strength enhancer enables you to spot any possession, Free Peoples or Shadow. This includes possessions in any active support area, too!

The easiest way to abuse this Troll is to splash into your deck as many support area Shadow possessions as you desire. The cheaper the better. Hides, for example, only costs [1], but it doesn't require spotting anything and you get a free card draw! Scaffolding, Larder, Spider Poison, and Corsair War Galley are the go-to cards for this sort of abuse. You can easily double the strength of your Trolls by simply dropping these possessions whenever you draw into them.

Strengths and Weaknesses[edit]

Strong Versus...[edit]

  • Possession-heavy Fellowships. Limited or no directed archery fire. Hobbits.

Weak Versus...[edit]

  • Four vitality is nothing to sneeze at, but any Fellowship with a focus on arrows can drop this troll.
