I'm trying to see how far I can go with this deck. Playing through Nightmare quests and I haven't run into any unbeatable quest so far.

Basically it's Vilya plus Gandalf (to always see the top card) with lots of high cost, unique allies to increase chances of getting the most out of Vilya. Wizard Pipe and Imladris Stargazer play an important part here. These are the things I normally mulligan for.

I'm not an experienced deck builder. The deck is 55 cards and has a lot of singles which makes it unpredictable. Some combinations are not great (Silver Lamp + Jubayr) and in order to get Burning Brand on Beregond I first need to find Song of Wisdom, this is also the reason I added Gather Information and Word of Command, because there are different cards that may be needed but won't show up otherwise. However, the inpredictablity of the deck makes it a more diverse playing experience which I enjoy. Sometimes Jubayr becomes the main defender. Other times Silver Lamp comes out and Gandalf's Staff discards the bad cards and other times Beregond gets A Burning Brand and Unexpected Courage which is probably the ideal situation on combat heavy quests.
