This is, for the most part, Seastan’s Caldera 2.0 deck with some slight modifications towards more event card cancelation by adding Map of Earnil to help recur A Test of Will. The Map of Earnil helps recur another card that I am liking more and more, Stand and Fight.

The original purpose of Stand and Fight in the deck is to be a way to bring Imladris Caregiver into play after it is discarded. However in a deck using Prince Imrahil as a hero, it becomes a way to take undefended or large attacks safely. If an attack goes undefended, place the damage on the Prince, discard him, and bring him right back the same round! You are even getting an extra action after to defend or attack.

For the first turn, I mulligan for Prince Imrahil to get the most bang for my buck. However, I am finding that with the amount of pressure encounter decks are putting in on the first couple turns, I am still pulling out only two allies since I don’t have the time to get three in the discard pile.

Lastly, in the sideboard you will notice that I have Snowmane and Herugrim. These are for Théoden in the Rohan and the Eagles deck and will be featured more in future saga quests.

If you want more tips on how to run the deck, look up Seastan’s Caldera 2.0 write up. He goes into a lot of detail.

You know that caldara won't be usable for the rest of the campaign after you use her and leave her in discArd?

What exactly do you mean by using the Map of Earnil to "recur A Test of Will"? Cause activating the Map's effect is an action so it's not usable during the staging step of the quest phase. Or do you mean as a way to get it back in the deck?
