I have a similar deck. I really hope FFG comes out with more event cards for Noldor and Silvan because they only have one or two pertaining to them compared to many for the Rohan and Dwarf. There could be a few more attachments too.

i am running a very similar deck, although personally, i do not like to have a tri-sphere deck going on. if you do not get a resource generator early on you can be screwed. For that reason, i use legolas in place of your glorfindel. I also have half the deck as cheap allies and am pretty much able to get one out at least one ally out every turn. The threat is higher, although this team will be able to deal with most enemies that are thrown at it normally yielding 2 (or 3 with a blade of gondolin) progress tokens in the process. I do not have threat reduction (other than gandalf) but do not often need it. I could do with a little more healing but i have the citadel plates for that. Overall, i like playing with the tactics deck as i find it a bit more of a challenge. I alternate between 2 heroes from each sphere each week. Next week will be lore which i haven't played for ages. I am thinking of building around the lore dwarf, the guy from shadow and flame and Glorfindel (spirit). Sorry, not really good with names!

If you want to check out my deck it is listed here:

Yes, it's a bit risky... but with Horn and Steward the resources were not a problem on my past quests… :)

Yes again... Maybe the only weak side of this deck is location-questing and location-managing... so I'm going to play quests like Emyn Muil to tune this aspect.

Right! I think that Noldor cards are more effective and strong than single Silvans and Dwarfs... but I also hope for more synergies for Noldors... :)

i think cards will be worded as "Noldor or Silvan" - most people just see them as elves, and i think FFG just makes the distinction to please the purists/license

but yeah any synergies a la rohan/dwarves would be welcome

i'm really looking forward to the hobbit synergy cards, although something tells me they're a long way off.

At least there are cards which only have Noldor or (exclusive or) Sylvan as keyword (i.e. Elrond's Counsel, or that elf that heals other Sylvan elves).

Actually, Elrond's heritage was extremely intermixed, but he preferred to regard is lineage from Thingol, who was Teleri. whistle

Besides, Elrond kinda automatically makes a deck rather Elrond-focused.

And together with the Twins, his Threat would probably be a bit much. Glorfindel the Blue is a much better fit, there.

I found the twins work really good in an eagle deck.

I think you don't need 3 rivendell blades and dropping 1 of your dunedain watchers takes you down to 50 cards.

Yes, thanks for the suggestion... I also thought to drop one Blade...
But the watcher saves me from a lot of brutal shadow effects...

Maybe I could drop one these:
3 x Elrond's Counsel ( DWA 59 ) [Threat manipulation]
3 x The Galadhrim's Greeting ( CS 46 ) [Threat manipulation]

...I'm testing now Massing at Osgiliath...

Making me want to make a Rivendell deck. Though Elrond and his sons sound interesting too...

You can probably lose some of those at least (probably The Galadhrim's Greeting; if you remove those three, you could even add a third Watcher). Between Gandalf and Sneak Attack you still have some options for Threat manipulation.

Elrond's Counsel is probably more useful in this deck, since it doesn't cost any resources and also grants a little Willpower bonus (multi-purpose).


As for the Rivendell Blade... while you probably don't need three of them in play, having 1-2 is surely useful, so having three in the deck does make sense, so you get one early.

Bye
Thanee
