The Mormegil 645
Now that Dwarf-Swarm is a little bit nerfed by the We Are Not Idle errata, I truly believe that Gondor (next to Outlands) takes the award for swarmiest archetype out there. They have a lot of cheap allies, global buffing, incredible resource acceleration and reliable card draw.
While you are certainly able to build a Gondor based deck with lots of different hero line-ups, I found this lineup the most thematic and also very powerful. Denethor allows for a kickass start and can trigger Heir of Mardil, Faramir can be used to ready you strongest allies like Treebeard or the Knights of the White Tower and Boromir is your Gondor-Dáin. Steward and the Rod usually go on Denethor, Steed of the North on Faramir and Heir of Mardil and Visionary Leadership on Boromir. Move a resource with Denthors action to ready Boromir with Heir of Mardil.
Visionary Leadership is your second priority after Steward of Gondor. Steward just accelelarates your game hugely (and can be turned into card draw with the Rod) so I would mulligan for it. Captain's Wisdom on Denthor can be a nice compensation though. AVGT helps with the swarm. With all the resources you should be able to pump out at least two allies per round, even more if you have AVGT.
Concerning the sideboard, Gandalf + Sneak Attack is often a good include, especially in quests where threat becomes "a thing". Threating out happened to me while testing, Gandalf should help with that in some quests. The other cards in the sideboard come down to personal preferance and playing style. Someone like Errand-Rider can become really useful in multiplayer for example.
Overall, a powerful, thematic and fun Gondor deck. Tested it against several normal and several nightmare quests. The deck does fine in solo, but your lack of questing power before you get out Visionary Leadership can really hurt you. Mid- to lategame however, the deck becomes a questing machine. It's global boosting makes it in general a great option for multiplayer in which the deck performs even better than in solo.
Enjoy the deck!!
