To be a good steward is to make use of the resources you have for the good of others. This deck is constructed around that great "Uncle Moneybags" who we all wish we had.

Intended for multi-player play, especially with 3 or more players, this deck takes advantage of several game mechanics:

  1. Resource acceleration through many means, Steward of Gondor is a good one to mulligan for, and as many Resourceful cards as you can dig up. Also The Grey Wanderer adds additional resources every round if you will it.
  2. Resource smoothing using Parting Gifts, Errand-rider, Denethor's ability in conjunction with In Service of the Steward.
  3. Card draw for the whole group using Valiant Sacrifice, The White Council and Campfire Tales.
  4. The ability to play attachments on any character from any player, featuring an extensive sideboard of the most critical attachments that people mulligan for on other heroes.
  5. This deck also features card draw to bring out those "most critical attachments", even off-sphere ones that can be carefully utilized due to The Grey Wanderer.
  6. Finally the deck is rounded out by generally useful cards: Miner of the Iron Hills and Unexpected Courage. Can't have too much Unexpected Courage.

Strategy: First step of the plan is to work with your team, find out what attachments are the most critical. I have included Vilya in this deck, as an example. Swap this if desired for critical attachments from the sideboard. Next bring out Strider and mulligan if need be to find Steward of Gondor or the "critical attachment" or ideally both. While in secrecy, get out those Resourcefuls.

Overall, the strategy is simple - spend that money for the good of others. With Strider, you can give Denethor a little more willpower to contribute and then defend in a pinch. Give someone a Tireless Thoroughbred to do your fighting and defending for you.

Overall, be a good steward and a good citizen, and enjoy being that Uncle Moneybags that everyone wishes they had.
