Let me be the first to say that this deck isn't good at all, but the best I could build given the parameters of "A deck built only out of side quests and events."

While this deck could stand to have some work done on it, I actually don't think it's that bad. The contract and Frodo means that Gríma is actually threat-neutral (-1 from the contract, -1 from Frodo, +1 at the end of the round, +1 from Gríma's ability = 0 net threat gain), so you can either effectively treat Gríma as saying "Action: Reduce the cost of the next card you play by 1 (Limit once per round) or not trigger his ability and fairly consistently reduce your threat over the course of a game. The main changes I would make are switching out some of the events for different ones, especially Proud Hunters and Desperate Alliance as, even if you play A Good Harvest, you can't play them (A Good Harvest only works if you actually spend resources and Saruman can pay for events with the printed doomed keyword).

Also, Word of Command + Saruman + Gríma/Steward of Orthanc is quite possibly my favorite combo.

So proud hunters and desperate alliance are the stand in proxies for the doomed cards not on the site yet :-)

I hope to test this against the first core scenario this week to see if it can be beaten.

I tested it against shadows of mirkwood and it did win. But I fear that might be the only quest I ever win with this deck solo. I could not quest for more than 7, and while I have the action advantage of saruman and frodo (for grima), there's little healing. I am not sure if there is really any remedy besides running a spirit hero to try and offset the lost willpower. Glorfindel and Frodo Baggins actually work with each other fairly well without Light of Valinor, but to lose the auto doom card is pretty brutal.
