Tubarush has a newer deck inspired by this one: Thematic "Journey In The Dark" - Fighting deck

This is the non-Hobbit deck for my Thematic Saga run of Ring Goes South.

I went for only characters in the Fellowship, so Gimli is the only ally. The Hobbits and Boromir are in the Hobbit deck.

The obvious big change to this deck was replacing Fatty Bolger with Legolas and then getting cards for Legolas --- Mirkwood Long-knife, Light of Valinor, etc.

The goal of the deck is still the same --- buff up Gandalf and especially Aragorn with attachments. I put the boon Anduril on Aragorn. Use Elven-light as the discard for Legolas' ability. Between Elven-light, DĂșnedain Pipe, Expert Treasure-hunter (from the Hobbit deck), you can really get a LOT of card draw.

Resources are the problem for this deck, so use Gandalf's Staff, Unlikely Friendship, Ranger Provisions (in the Hobbit deck) and Parting Gifts (also in Hobbit deck) to boost that.

You are really hoping that Gimli will show up for free at the end of the 1st Planning Phase. If he doesn't, you probably won't want to play him --- especially with the ally hate from that one location.
