Arise, arise, Riders of Théoden! spear shall be shaken, shield shall be splintered, a sword-day, a red day, ere the sun rises! Ride now, ride now, ride! Ride for ruin and the world's ending! Death! Death! Death! Forth Eorlingas!

Ride for ruin and the world's ending! is a two-handed fellowship consisting of a Caldara/Théoden/Éowyn questing deck and an Elfhelm/Erkenbrand/Aragorn combat deck.

The combat deck uses Elfhelm's mount buffing to grant combat bonuses to Erkenbrand's defense and Aragorn's ability to destroy and engage. The questing deck provides plenty of with its mounted heroes while spamming out out an ally army using Caldara's ability and Théoden's discount.

This is a typical Caldara deck - you discard allies using Éowyn's questing ability, Steed of Imladris, or Glorfindel, only to have Caldara call them up later in the round. Once Caldara's dead, Prince Imrahil and your Sword-thain gather resources until you can call her back with Fortune or Fate. It's a lot of fun.

The combat deck should provide more than enough protection to allow the questing deck to go all in every round. Thanks to Elfhelm's buff, these Spirit heroes are going to be questing for high .

There's some Rohan synergy in this deck, as well. Gamling is a great target for Sword-thain and Unexpected Courage so you can use his ability to keep bringing back Háma, Westfold Horse-Breaker, and The Riddermark's Finest. Éomund is one of those allies you'll just want to keep on chumping and hitting with archery, since he's going to ready up a lot of characters in each deck when he dies. Caldara's going to bring him back at that key moment.

If Sword-thain doesn't make it onto Gamling, then you can always stick an appropriate mount onto whomever the new hero is for a questing buff.

Théoden keeps the cheap allies cheap, so you can save the expensive ones for the discard pile. He's going to want to be riding Snowmane, allowing him to quest for 3 and then sentinel defend for 5 when he gets the Golden Shield from the combat deck. He could also attack for 6 with Herugrim.

Take note that Steed of the Mark is not a Restricted attachment, so it can go on a hero with two other mounts (horse pyramid) so they can add questing to their combat. I usually send one to the Steward of Gondor-bearing Elfhelm. It's also good if you just need an early game buff on one of the Rohan heroes in the fellowship who hasn't found their mount yet.
