How effective have the Noldor decks been in the current game environment? I am in the process of planning a Noldor deck using the leadership and tactics brothers along with the 5 threat Glorfindel.

In short, not very. The brothers aren't bad, and there's a few good Noldor attachments, but nothing powerful enough to be make a whole deck. Right now, Dwarf eclipses all other traits and is the only thing worth building an entire deck around, let alone more than one. Everything else is more of a sub-theme.

That said, there's nothing wrong with your hero line-up, if you don't mind playing 3 spheres. Arwen is great with Elrohir, but she's the only decent Noldor ally in your spheres. The Rivendell attachments are also decent, and Light of Valinor and Elrond's Council are both excellent, but after that you're kind out of theme.

Envoy of Pelargir will be useful to you, I think, for fixing your spheres - it allows you to play Arwen on turn 1, for example.

Although I understand the thematic reasons for separating Noldor and Silvan, I kidna wish they'd just gone with an Elvish trait (maybe both Elvish and the more specific) so that Elvish decks were more viable. If, for example, Silvan Tracker healed your Noldor characters you'd be looking at a decent start to an Elf deck with Elrond.
