Hi -

I would really like to be able to solo-beat Steward's Fear with a Gondor (and friends) deck and am looking for some suggestions as to how to improve this. For thematic reasons, Faramir is off limits. I have everything except Druadan and Encounter. (I have beaten the quest with a few different Outlands decks, so I'd like to try it without them.)

Thank you!! for any advice.

Instead of Eleanor, I suggest Glorfinel from FoS. Never was a fan of Eleanor.

Yeah...definitely not ignoring Eleanor with Local Trouble around.

I'm considering switching to Leadership Boromir, but Feint and Tactics Boromir's ability is so nice.

I've been using this Gondor deck for all the Against the Shadow scenarios since The Steward's Fear for both thematic and strategic success.

The deck list is at 0:12 in the video.

Yes...I just discovered this video yesterday. Thanks.

I've tried it 3 times and come close but haven't been able to finish it off (once because I made a stupid major mistake).

I think that I was only successful about a third of the time, so I'm sure you're close now!
