tamhas has a newer deck inspired by this one: Guardian of Erestor

I'm fairly new to the game, been playing for just under a year. I've been playing around with Erestor for a bit to try and come up with a decent deck with him. This is my 5th attempt and I like it. The idea is to get at least one fully pumped up Guardian of Esgaroth with Wild Stallion, Valiant Determination and Hauberk of Mail. There's a lot of resource generation and smoothing to try and get the board state up and running quickly. I always mulligan for Steward of Gondor and put it on Arwen Undómiel. Errand-rider comes in handy to move resources to Denethor to pay for the guardian and he can use his ability to move resources to Arwen Undómiel.

I'm really enjoying playing this deck solo, and I'm going to see how far it can go without tweaking. So far I've failed to beat dol guldur after 10 attempts, the best I did was with Arwen Undómiel as captive but with Song of Travel and Steward of Gondor on Denethor.

Version 2.0 added Northern Tracker to try and beat a journey to Rhosgobel, which the original version couldn't handle.
