I decided to try to beat Journey Down the Anduin with the core mono Lore deck. As the starting threat is 30, it means I get the Hill troll right away. The plan is to get Protector of Lorien on Denethor to handle the troll's attack, then play Forest Snare. I have Beravor for card draw to help me get them.

Unfortunately I drew Forest Snare without "Protector", but I also had two Gandalfs. I decided to sacrifice an ally and boost my threat sky high, with the hope that Gandalf would help bring it down later. However, the gods smiled on me and I drew Protector of Lorien on Turn 1. I won by the very skin of my teeth with threat 49 and 2 heroes left
