Here's another deck for those of you having trouble with Siege of Cair Andros:

Heroes:
Beregond
Thalin
Boromir (Tactics)

Allies:
Veteran Axehand x3
Gandalf (Core) x3
Winged Guardian x3
White Tower Watchman x3
Vassal of the Windlord x3
Gondorian Spearman x3
Defender of Ramnas x3

Attachments / Events:
Swift Strike x2
Quick Strike x2
Born Aloft x2
Feint x3
Gondorian Discipline x3
Blade Mastery x3
Support of the Eagles x3
Spear of the Citadel x2
Behind Strong Walls x3
Thicket of Spears x3
Gondorian Shield x3


Basic Strategy:

Try to get a decent blocker (Defender of Ramnas or Winged Guardian) in your opening hand. Even better would be Winged Guardian + Support of the Eagles. Quest with blocker, Thalin, and Boromir and leave Beregond back to defend until you build up more allies. Ideally, Thalin would have a Support of the Eagles as he will be questing every turn.

This deck does not quest well with Willpower at all, so try to clear The Banks ASAP, then the Citadel, then the Approach if possible (see this link for overall strategy tips: http://talesfromthecards.wordpress.com/2013/01/21/siege-of-c...).

Try to conserve attack cancellation cards like Thicket of Spears and Feint for a big final sprint or two in Stage 5.

Thanks! Great deck. First try, I didn't get my 'support' nor my eagle cards. Second try went smoothly. 101 points, 6 rounds.

I have to thank you. I was really banging my head against the table trying to beat this quest. Your deck allowed me to get past this monstrosity and stop questioning whether or not I should continue collecting / playing this game. So technically you got another victory against Siege of Cair Andros!
