So i only have the core set and i have only played each scenario with the starting 30 card decks. I am not good at deck building so can anyone tell me what vards and heroes are the best to build a 50 card deck to beat the Escape from Dol Guldur scenario?

Suggestion #1, don't try this one solo. It's nearly impossible single handed.

I've been following Beorn's Path. They talk about deck construction and how it plays in the actual quest. They do this for the core and the first cycle. I've been finding it really helpful and can certainly give you a better idea how to build decks in the future. (It's like taking off the training wheels)

Also, Escape from Dol Guldur is pretty hard. I haven't beaten it yet. After a couple more attempts I may drop down to easy or sleazy mode, then move on.

As limited as the course it is your best bet would be to just crammed together pairs of the starter decks leaving out some of the less valuable and higher costs cards. Obviously you need to pick only three Heroes from each pair of 6.

I might try spirit/and tactics with Eowyn, Gimli, and Legolas (or Eleanor, depending on which major sphere you'd prefer), and lore/leadership with Denethor, Aragorn, and Théodred.

I've never played the scenario that way, though, so take it for what it's worth.

I don't play solo but this seems to be a popular deck: BACK TO BASICS: A Killer deck using only cards from a single Core set

Go check out hall of beorn. It's so good at helping new players through this. It was greatly beneficial to me.
