Hashed out a possible victory on this one, double-handed, with an outlands-tactics deck and (I think) a spirit deck. Feel there's a good chance I made a few mistakes in keeping track of everything/dealing out the cards right. Since then? Zero progress beating this quest. Got close quite a bit, but it made the defeat only that much bitter. Tonight, I scored a win with two decks I've been tweaking. I still feel these could be stronger, so I'm coming to the community for suggestions.

Deck #1
Hero
Aragorn (TWitW)
Elrond
Denethor

Ally
Gildor Inglorion x3
Erebor Hammersmith x3
Warden of Healing x3
Master of the Forge x3
Miner of the Iron Hills x3
White Tower Watchman x3
Henamarth Riversong x2

Attachment
Ranger Spikes x3
Asfaloth x3
Vilya x2
Thror's Map x3
Resourceful x3
A Burning Brand x3

Events
Risk Some Light x3
Mithrandir's Advice x3
Gildor's Counsel x3
Lore of Imladris x3
Will of the West x1

Strategy note: Thror's Map + Asfaloth have really proven essential to me, thus their inclusion in triplets, even with Master of Lore included.


Deck #2
Hero
Glorfindel (FoS)
Legolas
Dunhere

Ally
The Riddermark's Finest x3
Defender of Rammas x3
Northern Tracker x3
Westfold Horse Breaker x3
Escort from Edoras x3

Attachment
Rivendell Blade x3
Spear of the Mark x3
Light of Valinor x3
Rivendell Bow x3
Unexpected Courage x2

Event
Elrond's Counsel x3
A Test of Will x3
Hasty Stroke x3
Quick Strike x3
Hands Upon the Bow x3
Goblin-cleaver x3
Straight Shot x2
Will of the West x1

Philosophy Note: I subscribe to the "if it's worth having, it's worth having three of" school, for the most part. Some exceptions, for a good reason, are fine by me (such as each deck having one copy of "Will of the West" to help with that one plot possibility). I'm working with two cores and everything but Voice of Isengard.

Note for future readers:

The Lore deck has been pretty solid. I've changed up the Spirit/Tactics by basically making it the Spirit/Tactics deck from [=[geekurl=http://talesfromthecards.wordpress.com/2013/05/31/deck-spotlight-eleanors-big-adventureoutlands-gone-wild/]this[/geekurl] Tales from the Card deck, switching out:

* Imildris Stargazer for Arwen
* Blade of Gondolin for Rivendell Blade
* Trollshow Scout for Westfold Outrider

Instead of my Lore deck, his Outlands deck is great as well. I do add in Thorin's Map, which I find essential for this quest.

Enjoy!
