This is, easily to notice, a Grimbeorn/Armored Destrier deck. With Balin even a shadow effect from the first attack can be circumvented. So, Safer Combat is the key here.
Starting Hand and Style of Play
Armored Destrier and The Day's Rising are those who have the most impact. Dunedain Mark or/and Warning, Hauberk of Mail, Rune-master and especially Captain of Gondor are other cards which are nice, too.
In general, focus on attachments for Grimbeorn first. He will then be able to defend and counter attack almost every enemy in play. When having to less of good attachments in hand, spend Gildors resources (or use Legolas) to draw cards. Obviously, this deck isn't ment to quest much, so the initial 5 is more or less everything you'll get.
The very core cards for Grimbeorn do not add up to 50, so there is room for more.
Rune-master and Weather Hills Watchmen are a good choice when using Signals. Sneak Attack and Gandalf is an obivous choice. As beeing somewhat short on resources, Man the Walls is quite nice, especially in multi player.
All the allies focus on the dale or warrior trait, just to have a target for the remaining Hauberk of Mail.
Raven-winged Helm and Honour Guard help to prevent damage.
Celebrians Stone and Strider are a miner help with questing and sure are the very first cards to replace here. A side note on strider: here are way more than 3 usefull allies, but resources are short and spent on attachments first, so keeping it under those 5 characters is quite doable.
Gondorian Spearman (especially with an attachment) could be another good defender, but wasn't necesarry so far.
For missions where threat is a problem there are Favor of the Valar and Secret Vigils, but usually you want your party to have a somewhat high threat to engage all the enemies.
Mighty Prowess does fit well to Grimbeorn, but in the end its single extra damage wasn't worth the deck space - Grimbeorn does kill everything even without this card. Keep Watch is somehow the same category - Grimbeorn is strong enough without.
This deck focusses on multiplayer, so chances are that some other player can make more use of Steward of Gondor.
