In my opinion, the following hero combo and deck are very useful for solo playing. I took most cards from the core set, a few from The hunt for gollum and "A burning brand" from Conflict at the Carrock.

Heroes: Denethor, Eowyn, Beravor (Threat = 27)

Neutral cards:
3x Gandalf
3x Song of Kings

Spirit cards:

1x Unexpected Courage
2x The Galadhrim's Greeting
2x Northern tracker
2x Westfold Horsebreaker
1x Dwarven Tomb
2x Test of Will
2x Wandering Took
3x Stand and fight
2x A light in the dark
1x Hasty stroke

Lore cards:

1x Henamarth Riversong
2x Forest Snare
3x Daughter of the Nimrodel
2x Gleowine
2x A Burning Brand
1x Lore of Imladris
2x Rivendell Minstrel
2x Protector of Lorien
1x Dark Knowledge

Leadership cards:
2x Steward of Gondor
2x Faramir
3x Dunedain Mark
1x Celebrian's Stone
2x Sneak Attack

Depending on the scenario, you may want to include 2x Erebor Hammersmith (against Driven by Shadow/Forest Spider/Cavern Guardian), 2x Miner of the Iron Hills (against Caught in a web), 2 Winged Guardians (for A Frighened Beast/Carrock expansion) or some Snowbourn Scouts as meatshields. Leave out some of the spirit effect cards then.

Usually, you use Denethor's ability to look at the topmost encounter deck card (and if necessary, move it to the bottom), Eowyn for questing, and Beravor for defending or drawing cards.

Because you can dodge most of the ugly encounter cards and draw a lot of cards, I have a feeling that this hero combo might be a bit too strong. Did you have a similar experience?

Why Wandering Tooks and no Lorien Guides in a solo deck?

Edit: And do you mean Song of Kings instead of Song of Wisdom? Otherwise why the Leadership cards?

He is a good card to discard for other abilities and effects!

Not sure if serious.

A 2-cost ally with 1/1/1/3 is far from useless.

What do you think about the Denethor/Eowyn/Beravor Combo? Is it too powerful? I found that it accumulates cards very fast, which most often paves the path for victory.

I'll give your deck a shot and let you know what i think. I'm constantly looking for a better solo deck.
