MELE starter deck

Middle-earth: The Lidless Eye (MELE), released in 1997, was the second basic set of the Middle-earth Collectible Card Game. MELE adds the possibility to play as a Ringwraith of Sauron and arguably makes the game more complicated with all sorts of support and effect cards.

MELE was sold in starters and boosters (no cards from other sets needed to play). A booster (15 cards, 36 boosters per display) holds 1 rare, 4 uncommons, and 10 commons. A starter holds a fixed set (you can choose), an equivalent of 3 boosters, and 7 extra commons.
