This is a Dúnedain deck built around the idea of using the Vigilant Dúnadan to defend as many enemies as possible.

Now, I have to say that it is not the strongest deck ever. It works much better in a multiplayer setting, and it can generally only stand up to quests that have a lot of small, swarming enemies. But when it works, boy is it fun!

The idea is to play the Vigilant Dúnadan and increase his defense using Arwen Undómiel. Combined with Círdan the Shipwright and Narya, it's possible to get him to 5 defense, which, combined with sentinel, turns him into a non-exhausting 5 defence ally who can defend across the table.

The rest of the deck is comprised of strong questers (Early game: Silvan Refugee, Arwen, Late game: Warden of Annúminas), combat allies, and support cards.

Silver Lamp is very fun with Cirdan as with Light of Valinor he will be ready in the combat phase and can make use of Narya after you've considered how to defend all the enemies.

Part of playing the deck is deciding what to discard with Cirdan. There are enough 3x cards in the deck that you should generally be able to throw away something that isn't very useful.

The sideboard contains some cards that can be subbed in depending on what shadow effects are present in the quest at hand. A Test of Will obviously makes sense too, though I prefer to play without it. The same goes for Steward of Gondor, which would make it much easier to get the Dunadan into play. Legacy of Númenor is there if you prefer a faster start for your multiplayer group. You could also sub in Galadhrim Weaver for the Silvan Refugee in multiplayer.

Vigilant Dunedain (Ringsdb has a missing ''I'' for ''Denedan'' in the card's description) can be ridiculously powerful!

How are you paying for tactics cards?

@pokie Amarthiul gains a tactics icon while you have an enemy engaged with you.

@Lecitadinhuh? Dúnadan is the singular of Dúnedain
