would add northern bowmaster and when it comes out

the deck lacks carddraw, i would add some weapons and foehammer.

I do not have the cards you suggest yet, but they do look good, so thanks for the advice. On card draw, I would agree 100% of the time, except for the particular quest it is built for - Deadmen’s Dike. I do not have a lot of worthwile weapons, and including them for Foe-hammer’s sake is a risk for drawing dead cards (weapons without foe-hammer/foe-hammer without weapons) or one half of the combo in the discard pile.

I tried it, but went for the ”always useful approach” instead. Also, it was played in two-handed with a Vilya/Arwen deck, meaning I could use Gleowine for the hand that needed card draw and Arwen’s resource for Elrond or Aragorn.

I felt it performed better this way. If I got Sneak Attack Gandalf below 40, I could draw three as well. I tried Sword of Numenor and Foe-hammer but the chance that you get to use its ability is way too low. Also, with a Foe-hammer in the discard, it could add one or two cost for it to be played, reducing its worth even further.

o.k. if your cardpool has so few weapons, then foehammer is no option.(with leadership and tactic there are very much weapons meanwhile)

other option, take the legolas ally 3 times, and mulligan for it.

This deck worked like a charm! We had a little trouble getting allies into play, but we lucked out and didn't have a swarm of undead attacking us either. Wife played Sprit Eowyn, Lore Glorfindel, and Spirit Arwen. She quested while I did the fighting. :)
