The Line Unbroken – N21: Nightmare Dungeons Deep and Caverns Dim

Alright, we come now to the end of the first set of Hobbit Nightmares. Once I’ve done this quest I can move onto some substantially better ones. Must be Christmas.
Actually I meant to have this done a while back but unexpectedly came down ill on the 15th of December, leaving me unable to do much of anything really, but the lasting effects meant in particular it was over a week before I could even consider talking my way through a video for an hour or more. I’m done now though, so let’s talk riddles.

Years ago I built four decks designed specifically to be good at answering riddles. You can see them here. As I recall I did once take two of them against the Nightmare version of this quest and win it, so I could have considered simply re-using those decks, but I decided on reflection to build new ones. I have after all improved as a deckbuilder since then and I thought I could do even better.
So, this quest. The riddle mechanic led a very divergent quest as it was and the Nightmare deck just plays into that even further. Being better at answering riddles means less threat in the staging area and the cards you’re taking away are generally the most dangerous cards to deal with as not-riddles. The Nightmare deck gives us some more difficult riddles, but there’s a limit to how difficult the riddles can be without just changing up what they ask you to match (which a couple of the nightmare cards do, but only a couple), and it’s possible to make a deck very consistent. So that’s what I did.
