I was able to beat the quest this morning with the following deck.

Light of Valinor and Asfaloth on Glorfindel. Use Denethor's scrying ability to pass the Doors of Durin, and mitigating those awful Tentacle effects. Aragorn is there to drop threat after a couple of nasty Doomed 5 cards.

Worked pretty well!


Total Cards: (50)

Hero: (3)
1x Aragorn (The Watcher in the Water)
1x Glorfindel (Foundations of Stone)
1x Denethor (Core Set)

Ally: (21)
3x Gandalf (Core Set)
3x Master of the Forge (Shadow and Flame)
1x Henamarth Riversong (Core Set)
3x Imladris Stargazer (Foundations of Stone)
3x Zigil Miner (Khazad-dum)
1x Gleowine (Core Set)
1x Gildor Inglorion (The Hills of Emyn Muil)
3x Erebor Hammersmith (Core Set)
3x Warden of Healing (The Long Dark)

Attachment: (20)
2x Light of Valinor (Foundations of Stone)
3x Unexpected Courage (Core Set)
2x Asfaloth (Foundations of Stone)

This has been something I never understood. Why would anyone play Resourceful in a non-secrecy deck. Has it ever paid off?

Honestly, I didn't use it. I think I ended up discarding on Protector of Lorien. You could easily sub that out for something else.

While it may seem expensive for its utility, I have occasionally found it to be of value. Since it is a neutral card, resources from all three heroes can be used, so covering its cost of 4 isn't always that difficult. The best example I can give is in a tri-sphere deck where you have drawn a number of cards in one sphere. In that case, you don't have any cards to spend resources on in the other two spheres anyhow and can play some cards from the overloaded sphere by playing Resourceful on the hero with the latter sphere. So, it can be a saving grace when you have a hand clogged like that. On the other hand, it would make little sense in a mono-sphere deck.

Yes! I play 3 in my secrecy deck and often find myself playing more after I'm well over 20 threat. Sure, having one your opening hand is best, but not it's only use.
