After playing a lot of Road to Legend we are thinking about returning to RedJak's Automated Overlord Variant (RAOV) to give a try with it to the Labyrinth of Ruin Campaign. We already played the Shadow Rune campaign this way and in my experience it was fun but rather easy. So I started to think how can the difficulty be increased and one idea was to use a plot deck from one of the lieutenants packs. Currently I don't own any of them so I started to research which one would pose the biggest challenge. I tried to use this thread as starting point:
https://boardgamegeek.com/geeklist/205588/guide-descent-2ed-...

But when I checked out Zachareth's plot deck on the wiki I realized that even though it might be one of the best plot decks for "normal" play it wouldn't be that strong for using with the automated overlord as there are multiple cards which manipulates the overlord cards which would either require us to make decisions for automated overlord -something I would rather avoid- or execute the manipulation randomly in which case the plot card is basically useless.

The situation is made difficult by the fact that the wiki actually does not contain all the plot cards, so I can not just check all of them and decide.
So, perhaps somebody has experience on the topic: Which plot deck would pose the biggest challenge while playing RAOV?

We have a RAOV game going in Shadow Rune with Serena's plot deck. Don't pick that one if challenge is what you seek. Serena's deck is pitiful.

Just judging by what I have seen of it, Ardus Ix'Erebus's deck would probably do really well in RAOV. It buffs small monsters a whole bunch.
