The starter decks each have different themes, and are a good entry point for players that want to try deck-building past the limitations of the cores set (see "'LotR: The Card Game - Revised Core Set' "). The Defenders of Gondor starter has a high-risk, high-reward strategy that banks on players being able to hold their ground, and the Dwarves of Durin starter relies on a delving mechanic to draw cards. The Elves of Lorien starter is a tactical deck that utilizes Silvan allies by triggering their abilities multiple times. The Riders of Rohan starter is a cavalry-themed deck that makes use of hit-and-run tactics.
Each deck will retail for $21.99, and require the base set to play.
