This deck is based around getting out as many Gondor allies as possible in support of the Lord and Lady of Ithilien, whose deck pairs with this one. It eventually quests quite well, but is especially potent in combat.
Denethor gains Armored Destrier and Dúnedain Signal from the other deck, and from this one gains Gondorian Shield, Steward of Gondor, and Rod of the Steward. He is the tank, eventually defending for a consistent 5 defense along with readying. In bad situations you can use Behind Strong Walls to give me an extra defence. The spare Shield can go to the other deck.
Prince Imrahil is the fun card. He gains The Red Arrow and Heir of Mardil. With these two he can quest for 3 or 4 if Boromir is boosting him, and then gets given a resource by Denethor in the combat phase to ready with Heir. He can then spend that resource to summon a useful ally!
Many other cards are simple plays: A Very Good Tale is best used with high cost allies to ensure a good return, although notably it is a very good way to get Knight of the White Tower in without having to pay 4 resources from 1 hero! Imrahil's ability can help to cheat a high cost ally in to power A Very Good Tale. Campfire Tales provides card draw, and The White Council is a utility card to provide both decks with what they need at any given time. This deck usually uses the return of a discarded card.
The allies are self-explanatory in most cases. The deck often runs into the high threat levels, but that can power the Veteran of Osgiliath, the Honour Guard, and The Red Arrow. Citadel Custodian is there to be put in play by Imrahil for A Very Good Tale. In some quests, especially those in the Harad cycle, defending allies need at least some willpower. In those situations sub out the Defender of Rammas and put in the Defender of Cair Andros, since that 1 helps a great deal, and often the Defenders are at 4 defence anyway. Pelargir Ship Captain and Squire of the Citadel are there to smooth resources to the other deck.
Really it is Imrahil who makes this deck tick and who makes it fun. His 'lucky dip' ability can be very useful!
