Lord of the Rings LCG - Blondes Have More Fun!
If you've played the game, you know which sphere is left - and which blonde I'm referring to. Spirit was actually the deck I was least thrilled by from all the previews, but Eowyn is the master quester and when you combine her with Dunhere who is actually a great combat hero and Eleanor who, while her power is conditional, can defend pretty well on her own, the Spirit deck is a great balance between questing, location clearing, and combat.
I mentioned Dunhere above, but he really is one of my favorite heroes. I don't think there's any other hero that really meshes so well with the core strength of a sphere like Dunhere does. A 3 attack against a creature in the staging area is awesome and can kill almost anything in a few turns. What's great about both him and Eowyn is that they do really well in both solo and cooperative game play. I can't wait until we see a new hero and what other player cards we're going to see for Spirit in future releases! I'm really curious to see which other characters are going to be tapped for the sphere (not to mention the others as well!).
On a side note, I borrowed the images for these cards from CardgameDB which not only has all the known cards pictured and spoiled, but put them all in a database with an easy-to-use deck building tool as well. If you're looking to get more information on the game and take a look at the cards, this is probably the best resource on the web.
