manoftomorrow010 has updated this deck: First Solo; Aragorn, Elladan, and Elrohir

This is my first real shot at a Solo play deck that I plan to run through the quests progressively. I've built it using all the packs I already have (through Dwarrowdelf, minus Watcher & Foundations). I like Elladan and Elrohir, although haven't used them before, and this deck feels thematic, as Aragorn and the brothers would have worked together in the wild.

I included the two Spirit events with hopes that I could get Celebrian's Stone on Aragorn early, and have some treachery cancellation as well as Threat reduction. But, I'm over 50 cards and hard pressed on what to remove.

Anyone have suggestions, that'd be great!

I could see taking out the Caches and Hands Upon the Bow plus Winged Guardian in favor of the other signals and Song of Travel to help you pay for the Spirit cards more consistently. The other signals would be good as cheap attack and defense bonuses. You could also bump Dunedain Quest up a copy.

@The White Wizard I will try that out. I hoped Cache and Hands would offer more actions to kill enemies without engaging. I'll keep that on my sideboard depending on the individual quest challenges.

Who do you suggest putting Steward on? All three heroes need the resources for their readying effects.

I always put Steward on Elrohir. Defense is extremely important, and he can do it very reliably when he has Steward. The other option is to put it on Elladan to smooth out Tactics resources.

@The White Wizardthats a good point. You can use their abilities more than once a round, right, as many resources as you have?

Apr 05, 2017 The White Wizard 312

Yes. There have been games when I have blocked 8 enemies with Elrohir and then killed a few of them with Elladan. If you wanted to, you could retool the deck a little and use Eowyn from the Core Set instead of Aragorn. You would have a little bit more willpower and natural access to Spirit. This deck looks like it could be really cool with some tweaking.

@The White Wizard Yeah I use Eowyn in my two-player deck and wanted to switch it up a bit for a solo run. But I'm definitely open to changing the deck according to quest needs, although I don't want to just build decks for each specific quest unless it's impossible to beat one with what I've got here.

Also, a RingsDB question, how can I update this published version? I made changes you mentioned above but they don't show here.

You will have to republish the deck with the changes. It will show up on the site as Version 2.0 and will coexist with this one.

@The White Wizard I did so, and thanks for the help! I also made & published a deck with Eowyn as you suggested. I'm going to play some on OCTGN and see how they do.

Glad I was able to help!
