Currently overseas and having a friend ship a small batch of player cards to me, with the hopes of playing The Black Riders soon. Did this expansion come with a decklist like the Hobbit saga expansions? If so, I'd greatly appreciate having that posted!

Did you mean a list of all the cards like Vladimir posted or a suggested player deck to get you started?

I love the content of the link, but I was hoping for suggested player decks, if those do exist for this expansion.

So, does that mean that the Frodo hero card is used outside of the player standard deck and is automatically assigned to the first player?

That is correct. He moves around like Bilbo from the Hobbit expansion if you are familiar with those.

First thoughts are, with the new HIDE keyword, that you will likely need something which will ready characters.

Any tips which cards will do this best ?

Unexpected Courage is of course the old standby, especially with multiple cores.

If you're running a hobbit deck (which I think most people will be), Fast Hitch is a cheaper Unexpected Courage (readies a hobbit every turn) - it's from the Dead Marshes pack.

Dwarves have Lure of Moria to ready everyone (Road to Rivendell).

Any deck with a Leadership hero can use Cram (TH:OHaUH) for one-shot readying; any deck with a Spirit hero can use Miruvor (Shadow and Flame) or Westfold Horse-breaker (Hunt for Gollum) in the same way.

Personally, I'll probably just use Unexpected Courage and Fast Hitch for up to 5x readying per turn, but you have options.
