jamjams32 has a newer deck inspired by this one: Haldan’s Fury (Powerful Solo Deck-Updated)

So I’ve been intrigued by Haldan as soon as i saw him spoiled. This is a deck I’ve built centered around the bonkers ability that Haldan has. This deck uses many of the incredible location attachemnt cards in the game to help control threat, lower the quest value of locations, bring in expensive allies for free, and to draw a ton of cards.

I’ve played this deck solo against most of the Harad quests and am now playing through the Rhovanian cycle and it has been smashing quests consistently. It’s one of the most balanced decks I’ve played. It draws a TON of cards (Ancient Mathom, Daeron's Runes, Master of the Forge, Elven-light, etc). It can quest extremely hard. It’s got good healing. And finally, as we’ve probably all seen, this deck also tries to utilize Grimbeorn the Old to full effect. He’s a powerhouse in this deck as my primary defender and attacker early on. Load him up with a Captain of Gondor, Bow of Yew, and Glamdring, and he’s an absolute beast. He’s able to defend against most enemies with Honour Guard to help prevent any damage that might come his way

Some of other highlights of the deck is how it utilizes Elf-stone so effectively. Especially with using it in conjunction with Woodmen's Path its incredibly easy to trigger and bring in many of these incredible allies to further bolster our questing, defense, and attacking.

Overall it’s been an incredibly fun and powerful deck to play. Please send any comments or ideas about the deck. Give it a shot and let me know what you think! Game on

When I first read your decklist, I liked it, but when I tested it, I started to love it! It's a real great one. Only "problem" is a little lack of willpower. I would also think about adding a Song of Wisdom.

@Benedikt Thanks for the comment! So great minds think alike. I was playing this deck again yesterday and occasionally noticed the same thing that i was lacking a bit of willpower. I reworked the deck yesterday and it performed much much better. Here’s my updated decklist which accounts for a bit more will power (primarily with the addition of Windfola and Silvan Refugee and Bofur. Also I’ve found space for a copy of Magic Ring which has actually turned into a monster of a card. Again this deck draws so much that i always find it and typically put it on Grimbeorn for an extra ready or for a resource. The deck controls threat so well that it’s drawback isn’t bad at all. It’s been a super fun deck to play.

I'm surprised you didn't include any Guarded cards. Even just the ones that only attack to locations would work well here.

@mrbonanza so since posting this decklist I’ve made just a few changes. And one of those changes was adding in two copies of Thror’s key! Great minds must think alike because yeah I’ve been playing with the card for a few weeks now I’m this deck and it’s been amazing. Thanks
