Regarding situations like the Witch King at Pelenannor fields, you could have a “The Doom that Came to...” battle card. Before the battle, one unit is secretly designated as carrying the doom and it shatters the Power in combat.

"Gotcha" cards are generally bad for games. The focus ends up being more on the trick than on the battle. There is a very good reason why we don't have any "surprise" battle cards.

The Witch-King seemed rather overconfident. He could be killed by a Woman, Halfling, Elf, Dwarf, Horse, Wizard, Ent or an Orc with really bad aim.

I suspect that has a lot to do with why he spent so much time in warfare with the Kingdoms of Men. And why he led several voter drives against the Equal Rights Amendment in Arnor.
