That's the question.
I'd like to know what you think about it, because I'd like to try the game with all the cards (2 sphere deck)

Depends on a lot of things:
-which scenario
-which spheres
-how many players
-which heroes
-which expansions (if any)

Considering solo play, I am pretty sure the first scenario is beatable, and probably also the second (depends on your starting threat level a lot).

Dol Guldur - well that is very difficult solo even with a well-built deck, so I doubt it (unless you are very, very lucky, of course)

I've only won the first scenario without deck-building, but the second was really really hard:
I played with 2 players, 2 spheres per player

I also play two-player two-spheres each mostly. And in the beginning we did remove hardly any card (except for the tactics one where you need three tactics heroes and I think Brok Ironfist).
And we succeeded in the Anduin scenario more often than not.

Are you using three Gandalfs each? And which sphere and hero combinations?

About Dol Guldur: I think that would be really difficult. We started optimising our decks before trying Dol Guldur for the first time.

With the exception of the Escape scenario, I have to say a resounding "YES"

We use 2 Gandalf each (2 x player), we only have 1 core set.
Tactics/Lore
Leadership/Spirit

Yesterday's game heroes were **Bilbo, Legolas and Denethor** and **Theodred, Gloin and Eowyn**

We use the same sphere combination, but other heroes. Most importantly we have two spirit heroes (and two tactics). I don't remember exactly though what was the hero combination we used when we were playing non-optimised decks.

Maybe you could try different heroes? We normally use Bilbo, Legolas & Gimli and Eowyn, Theodred & Dunhere.
