When Long Lake Trader and Bartering were released, a lot of people instantly thought of Beregond. The combo is too good to pass up. Use Beregond's ability to play an attachment for free, then use the Long Lake Trader to move it onto someone else. Or, use Bartering to bring it back into your hand, play a different attachment at a reduced cost, and then put the original attachment back on Beregond.

Here are some examples of how to use that combo in this deck:

LLT moves a free Spear of the Citadel from Beregond to a Gondorian Spearman.

Bartering returns a 2-cost attachment from Beregond to enable you to play King of Dale for free, amazing on turn 1. Then return the attachment.

Bartering returns a 2 cost attachment from Beregond to play Self Preservation for 1. Again, return the attachment.

This deck also has 3 copies of Spare Hood and Cloak and Unexpected Courage. These can be used to ready Beravor so you can draw 2 cards, or ready Beregond. LLT can move unused Spare Hood and Cloaks around to a ready character or to a character that will be a better target. For example: You play SH&C on North Realm Lookout, he is an obvious choice because of his abilities. You use it to ready Beravor. Then, use LLT at the start of the next turn to move it back to the North Realm Lookout to repeat this.

This deck should do fine in solo but it would do amazing work in a multiplayer game.

Any ideas to recur Bartering? The Scroll of Isildur seems a bit expensive.

@Wandalf the Gizzard Well, since there are 28 attachments, 3 Masters and Beravor, I would dare say the deck will be thin in no time, so - Galadhrim Weaver and to go even further - Born Aloft to return the Weaver.

Another way to go is Ered Nimrais Prospector and Will of the West. This one bears more risk and requires a better mulligan so Galdor of the Havens might be better than Beravor for such plan.

Recurring would be nice, but it's also not 'needed' over and over. It allows you to basically play an attachment for free, which you don't necessarily need to do more than 3 times. A deck that could easily recur it would be mono-Lore with the Scroll of Isildur and Sword-thain. Thanks for the question!
