Haven't built one yet but with the addition of Rider of the Mark I figured it might be time to give it a chance. I usually play with 2 or 3 decks so I'm not really looking for a solo spirit deck. What do you guys got

If not solo, I like Théodred, Éowyn, Frodo as a questing deck. It is not as thematic as I would like (or as I had made before) but it helps other players to make progress so they can focus more on other aspects. From the Rohan allies, I prefer Scout, Escort, Traveller and Finest. Tracker, Faramir and Gandalf fit naturally. Ancient Mathom and Good Meal as the attachments go. More of the obvious: Sneak, Vigilant, Tomb, Test, Musterring, Speed, Stand and Fight, and even Fortune or Fate does not seem that bad of an idea with Good Meal around.

Theodred, Eowyn and Dunhere.

Resource generation, questing power and the ability to knock out enemies before they leave the staging area.

Compliment with Galadhrim's greeting to keep the threat low, Dunedain Marks to beef up Dunhere, Northern Trackers to keep locations from clogging the staging area and you've got yourself a fine Rohan deck.

Works for me!

This is pretty much the solo Deck I (used to) run. Yes, it is fun and probably the best way to conquer Osgiliath, for instance.

If you can have more players though, I think Dúnhere is best off in a deck with Tactics, so he can Quick Strike the staging area (and the new Unseen Strike is a great combo with him, too).

I pretty much run this exact deck. Only I don't run Ancient Mathom or Good Meal. Northern Tracker is practical a must in a deck like this too. Faramir is amazing and I forget the card that gives heroes the Rohan trait but it makes questing a synch.

This is the most Rohan-focused deck I've made:

Nor am I a Strangers gives characters the Rohan trait. Astonishing Speed gives all Rohan characters +2 Willpower.

With so many ways of dealing with locations, Ancient Mathom can come handy.
