This list stems from my Hero of the Month for July/August - Eleanor. From there, I wanted to make a deck that played a support role. Though spirit heavy, the deck isn't built with the goal of pushing out large amounts of willpower but rather a fairly decent amount while using other effects to make the quest phase a little easier.

Feel free to check out my post on this list by clicking the following link. Otherwise you can read a quick bit of insight into my card choices below!

There is a smattering of location control in the deck with The Evening Star, Steed of Imladris, Thrór's Key, and, of course, Northern Tracker.

Though technically a form of location control, Ghân-buri-Ghân is included to be a potential power-house of a quester. Being only good once there is an active location in play means that Ghan's slack needs to be taken up in other ways. Arwen Undómiel's Hero Card, Glorfindel, and Lindon Navigator provide a fair amount of willpower out the gate.

For other players, Arrows from the Trees, Heed the Dream, and The Galadhrim's Greeting help in their own respective ways (dealing with enemies, card advantage, and threat management).

This deck tries to do a lot, and while that would normally stretch a list too thin, this list attempts to mitigate that with card draw and other fixing abilities in cards like Galdor of the Havens, Daeron's Runes, Elven-light and Gather Information.

So far, with just a couple of games under this deck's belt, this list does particularly well when their are locations to be managed. The sideboard can be built to provide extra willpower, healing, or location control, depending on the particular quest.

As it stands this list is pretty fun. Having allies like Glorfindel and Gildor Inglorion gives the deck a little bit of combat presence. It's low threat will also mean that we have time to get any of these allies out before we are overrun.

Let me know what you think of the list and please check the blog post on this deck for more information!

Thanks!
