I have always loved Beorn and wanted to include him in a deck, but outside of a Vilya deck, it always seemed difficult. I feel like the addition of Beorning Skin-changer may have changed all of this, especially if used in combination with Stand and Fight and Dwarven Tomb, allowing Beorn to be recurred over and over.

Elf-friend is included so that Arwen Undómiel can smooth resources to Grimbeorn the Old to pay for Beorning Skin-changer, Master Ironsmith, and Grimbeorn the Old's ability. I initially considered Miruvor for this purpose, but Elf-friend seemed like the better solution. The Master Ironsmith is obviously in the deck to get Citadel Plate onto Grimbeorn the Old.

My biggest concern is Beorn being shuffled in the draw deck instead of discarded, but I imagine that having three copies and the fact that Beorn's ability will not be used every single turn will mitigate this issue.

Any thoughts or comments appreciated.

How often do you end up with Master Ironsmith and Citadel Plate together? That seems to be his best target in this deck. Also, did you consider Elrond's Counsel?

With three copies of Citadel Plate, it happens quite often. I considered Elrond's Counsel, but I opted for the flexibility of The Galadhrim's Greeting. I am actually revising this deck now. Glorfindel just feels underused, and I want more reliable card draw, so I think I am going to swap in Gildor Inglorion and add a splash of other cards.

True. Do you mean overused about Glorfindel? Anyway, are you bringing this to a Fellowship Event?

In reference to Glorfindel, I mean he feels underused in this particular deck. I feel that a dedicated Glorfindel deck would make better use of him. I am considering bringing this to a Fellowship event, though I may stick to my Silvans.
