A couple of weeks ago I tried putting together a deck around core Aragorn. I wanted to try and take advantage of his ability and use him for more phases. However I gave myself the limitation that Aragorn was going to be the only character in my deck. The Lone Ranger!

I happily started pulling out all of the attachments and events one could ever want. I was using 3 of the spheres because of Celebrian's Stone and Ring of Barahir (no tactics because I didn't want to use a song).

I ran into a few problems early on because I was very dependant on a great starting hand. I then tried starting with just Celebrian's Stone already attached. Things were not going good for the Lone Ranger.

I then tried giving Aragorn all of the unique "Aragorn" attachments to start the game. The stone, the ring, and the sword. After numerous games (most ending fairly quickly) I gave up.

Please help me try to make the Lone Ranger dream come true (or tell me to just move on). I should note that I only tried this deck out on Passage Through Mirkwood and that I have all the expansions except for the latest 3 AP's.

I don't think the deck is there yet, but I really hope that at some point it will be capable of challenging the Hunt for Gollum cycle solo.

And I thought I was being so clever...the only problem with that deck is that I was hoping to build one with no allies.

That would be ideal, but again, the card pool is just not there yet. (And by the time it is, everyone else will be playing Nightmare.)
