This deck is based one of the least-discussed "what-ifs" of the Third Age. What if Denethor didn't begrudge Aragorn his rightful place as the King of Gondor? In this alternate history, Denethor yields his role as Steward of Gondor to the rightful heir. In his role as king, Aragorn receives the Stewardship, along with all its accompanying powers (e.g. the Rod of the Steward). Basically, every attachment in this deck belongs on Aragorn, along with all of the extra resources.
Duplicate cards are discarded to Arwen to aid the king, and once Aragorn has the Gondor trait thanks to Steward, Denethor can send him resources as well. This maximizes the effectiveness of two of the most broken cards in the game in Gondorian Fire and Blood of Numenor. With the support of all involved, Aragorn will amass an embarrassment of wealth. Gandalf shows up from time to time, to deal with whatever problems might arise.
Even with relatively few allies, the deck should handle questing well. Sword that was Broken and Celebrian's Stone see to that. Galadriel helps get critical attachments into play, and further supports questing efforts. One particularly nice combo that Denethor facilitates is a first turn Galadriel into Sword that was Broken on Aragorn. If you can spare a discard to Arwen, you can still play a first turn Steward on Aragorn - thanks to the Leadership sphere granted by the sword. Denethor opens up some truly amazing opening turns.
With readying on Aragorn, he should be able to handle defending and attacking with ease. Gondorian shield turns Denethor into a more than capable defender, and the allies can be used as fodder to help you survive the early game. Once Aragorn has Blood and Fire and a decent number of resources he will be unstoppable. Use the card draw from Elven-light and Rod Stewart to find any critical pieces that you need.
