God this looks amazing. I still have the entire Angmar cycle to catch up on first, though, before I get the Grey Havens.

Yeah, I am quite sure this is great for both solo play and multiplayer.

And, despite having a number of power cards (like Glorfindel), it is actually quite thematic.

Funny thing.

Except for anything from Grey Havens, and the Gandalf package, this is very similar to a deck I have been using for several months, so I am sure I would love this one. (Mine was Noldor-themed before Noldor became an archetype with its own mechanic.) I can attest that this deck is very versatile being able to perform well in both solo and multiplayer games. I've even defeated some scenarios that are particularly difficult for solo play, like Return to Mirkwood.

I can't wait to pick up Grey Havens and see what new things it will add for me.

After a few games, I have made some small changes now to balance things out a bit. Overall, the deck works as expected. The early rounds are, as usual, most crucial, but it can handle quite a lot once it had some time to unfold.

Currently, we are having fun with the Gray Havens (teamed up with an Erestor deck featuring Aragorn and Arwen and a lot of low-cost stuff).

Thanks for this deck Thanee - I started back in on LotR recently and wanted to use elves but couldn't bring myself to slog through all the latest combos. So I used a slight variant of yours and it's proved to be epic! Even made a respectable attempt at Dol Guldur (before inevitably dying and skipping the adventure)... sauron

Nice to hear! I'm having a lot of fun with this deck as well.

If you want to give Dol Guldur a real shot, you can try this one here:

Visiting an old friend ... Escape from Dol Guldur

Bye
Thanee

P.S. Both decks are also listed on RingsDB, which is pretty nice to browse the decklists:
