We begin the chilling chapter “Fog on the Barrow-downs” on the hobbits’ last morning in the house of Tom Bombadil and Goldberry.

SILVAN FEBRUARY! A card in the Silvan archetype that cancels a shadow effect?!?! Gotta have it... at least in a Silvan deck. We aren't so sure about in any other type of deck though. Decklist on RingsDB: https://ringsdb.com/decklist/view/10693/slippery-silvans-3.0 Card Talk's Patreon: patreon.com/cardtalk2018…
 
SILVAN FEBRUARY! In this episode we talk about another niche card that helps our slippery Silvan deck trigger, bouncing elves back into our hand. When you play the deck, you'll see that even these events sometimes only help to trigger the Silvan "when enter play" effects.

It is time for the 4th Annual Squirrelly Awards. These are our picks from 2018 that stood out during the year for us.

We want to thank everyon ...…
 
SILVAN FEBRUARY! This card is one of the powerhouse events in the deck! Not only does it power the "when enters play" mechanic that the Slippery Silvan deck highlights, but it also has a powerful effect against enemies. What a card!

For the first time ever, the Prancing Pony Podcast is proud to release one of our patron-exclusive episodes to our general audience.

Tolkien’s work has occasionally been labeled as racially insensitive or (in some cases) out ...…
 
SILVAN FEBRUARY! This lore event is vital to every Silvan deck that takes advantage of the "when enters play" mechanic that is so fun to play in the Slippery Silvan deck. It seems, though, that is doesn't have much of a place outside of that kind of deck. Decklist on RingsDB: https://ringsdb.com/decklist/view/10693/slippery-silvans-3.0 Become a ...…
 
SILVAN FEBRUARY! What Silvan build would be complete with out this one cost leadership attachment that let's you reduce the cost of the next Silvan you play. While it's great in the Slippery Silvan deck, I'm not sure there are many other decks that this card will make the cut. Decklist on RingsDB: https://ringsdb.com/decklist/view/10693/slipper ...…
 
SILVAN FEBRUARY! We talk about the leadership attachment that gives a boost to the Slippery Silvan archetype. The card obviously has uses in the Silvan deck, but it may not be useful outside of that. What uses do you see for it? Decklist on RingsDB: https://ringsdb.com/decklist/view/10693/slippery-silvans-3.0 Card Talk on Patreon: https://patre ...…
 
SILVAN FEBRUARY! In this episode we talk about one of the three brothers from Lothlorien, Orophin. His ability is great for the Silvan deck, but may not hit on all cylinders for other deck archetypes.

SILVAN FEBRUARY! The Greenwood archer came out in the last cycle, but you know that the ability must have been thought of for a Silvan deck that includes Thranduil. Listen to what we have to say about the Greenwood Archer and is it any good without Thranduil? See the deck list on RingsDB: https://ringsdb.com/decklist/view/10693/slippery-silvans ...…

We pour over news from the past week, including LVO previews, then wax lyrical for a bit about some choice Black Library themes and unsung heroes. Enjoy!
 
SILVAN FEBRUARY! Galion makes an appearance in The Hobbit as the butler who gets drunk and allows the captured dwarfs to escape. His card is a thematic home run and it also seems to feed the Slippery Silvan engine since he is a free ally that will get buffed by Celeborn's ability. But he may not get use in decks outside the Silvan archetype. De ...…
 
SILVAN FEBRUARY! In this episode we talk about a craftsmen elf from Lorien, the Galadhrim Weaver who can only be used for questing. While it's a great include in this deck, is it good for general purposes?

SILVAN FEBRUARY! This ally helps protect your board, especially in solo play. He deals direct damage to enemies NOT engaged with you, so that means enemies in the staging area and enemies engaged with other players. Bouncing him in and out of play can be lethal! Decklist on RingsDB: https://ringsdb.com/decklist/view/10693/slippery-silvans-3.0…
 
SILVAN FEBRUARY! The Galadhrim Minstrel is an ally that helps you dig out those events that you want oh so badly. While in a regular deck this card can shine, in the Slippery Silvan deck, this card is great! Tune in for this and all our Silvan content for the month of February!
