This is another deck of my personal series of disassembled decks. It does not mean the deck is worthless to keep. Instead, I want to keep the memories of this deck and might return to it in the future. You can find my list (which I started in juli 2019) most probably here. :)

Idea and concept

Since Drinking Song was released I wanted to rebuild a Outlands/Erestor deck. That card clearly has its Hobbit references with its illustration and a bonus if you have a hobbit hero, but honnestly it shines in an(y) Erestor deck. 10 starting cards and still no Steward of Gondor? Doesn't matter if you have a Drinking Song on your hand.

This is why I'd mulligen for Drinking Song and/or Steward of Gondor. With Denethor you can instantly attach Steward to Hirluin and also transfer the last resource. So, in round 1 Hirluin allready has 4 resources and with cards like Wealth of Gondor, Man the Walls and Gaining Strength you gather even more without any drawback.

When you have played all these cards, then use Drinking Song to recive even more resource acceleration cards (or shuffle cards, which you do not want to see on round one, like Sword of Morthond, A Very Good Tale, Men of the West or Faramir back into your deck) to finaly play your first (few) Outland allies.

There is no dedicated target for Sword of Morthond, I play it on any Gondor ally which is on the table at the very moment.

Forgot to mention the Sideboard: these are cards are cards which are "usually" within an Outlands deck. I do not like to use them much, but do not want to forget them.

Going for a strong opening round can be difficult, but Denethor's setup ability and using Drinking Song to find Steward of Gondor make that much more manageable. I like how this allows more Outlands allies to be played earlier in the game. Neat deck!
