When Open the Armory was released, I really wanted to make an Armoury deck that features a lot of Weapon and Armour attachments. With Wilds of Rhovanion giving us the excellent Bow of Yew, we got even more targets for it. This sparked my thought of a direct damage deck which retrieves a lot of armour and weapons, plays it on Beregond, and then distributes the attachments to the allies.
Thing is, the deck can't quest for a lot. Thalin only has 1 and your allies should definitely be attacking or defending. So an accompanying deck that quests hard should definitely be a good fit for this deck. Alternatively, you can consider adding cards like Trained for War or Grappling Hook to make more use out of values.
The idea of this deck is to get a bunch of weapon and armour attachments on Beregond and then swap them to your allies with the Long Lake Trader. You can also reduce the cost of your next attachment with Bartering. So you play a Gondorian Shield on Beregond, return it with Bartering and then play for instance a free Spear of the Citadel on a Gondorian Spearman. After that, you can replay the Gondorian Shield on Beregond for free, resetting the cycle. You can also do this with other attachments.
I included Elf-friend for free Bow of the Galadhrim and Rivendell Blade that can go on Beregond before going to your allies. be aware that you do not go over his 2 Restricted slots though, you may have to pull back some attachments with Bartering before you do this. Lembas was included to heal your heroes and to perhaps ready Argalad if you use him for Hands Upon the Bow.
The rest of the deck is a very combat heavy, with plenty of tricks to explore. This deck has some good direct damage effects that can ping the enemies in the staging area for a while. Straight Shot is one of my favourite cards, so I added it since you can reduce the defence of most enemies with Marksman of Lórien and Rivendell Blade on for instance Legolas.
I have not yet tested this deck, but I will make adjustments to it in the future once I get some games with it. Please try it out for yourself and comment some suggestions on what to take out and what to replace it with.
