Wandalf the Gizzard 1061

These three heroes don't look like much on paper, but they've always made for a killer combo. This is my take on the standard build.

The deck plays fairly simply. Mulligan for Fast Hitch. Quest with Glorfindel and Frodo, defend with Frodo, and leave Aragorn in reserve to kill along with Glorfindel once he has Light of Valinor. It really can't handle enemies until it gets going with a couple Peace and Thoughts, so a partner combat deck helps. However, once you get set up and have Light of Valinor out on Glorf, you can almost take two encounter cards per round by yourself.

The deck is wonderfully scrappy, too. Cancellation, Henamarth Riversong, Miruvor, and nigh infinite threat reduction go a long way, and the deck is still quite thematic. Especially when you play Flight to the Ford.

Enjoy!

Such a classic. I dig the Gandalf build as well, especially with all this draw.

I got to play several games with this deck and had a great time and beat nearly everything I tried with it. Nice work! lotrdecktest.wordpress.com

@Wandalf the Gizzard Great deck! @The BGamerJoe The article was also quite enjoyable. I'll definitely try it out with some of the more recent cards like Sam (spirit ally) and Rhovanion Outrider.
