Lore and Spirit deck composed of cards up to Khazad-Dum. The deck was designed to complement my wife's combat-heavy dwarf and eagle deck (Those Eagles are Carrying Dwarves! - Mirkwood and Khazad-Dum) by managing the questing, as well as healing in a pinch. Extremely low threat to start, but a liability in combat situations until you get some allies out. Needs a higher-threat, combat-heavy companion deck to keep the heat off and manage enemies while this deck clears locations and advances the objectives. So far we've scraped by Escape from Dol-Gudur and crushed the Hunt for Gollum, so going to keep going and see how long it carries me!

@BradandBabs I have a few recommendations I have from experience playing this deck. Cut Astonishing Speed and add another A Test of Will. Astonishing Speed's boost most likely will not give you much, and you really need to cancel Treacheries. Also getting rid of Song of Wisdom for another Song of Travel will work well because the highest cost card is 3 and you have and you can buy those in 1 round with Bifur's effect, and you have multiple 3 or higher cost cards.

Really though this deck paired with Eagles Carrying Dwarves! - Mirkwood and Khazad-Dum is really powerful and I like it a lot.

Appreciate the feedback! I agree that Astonishing Speed is pretty situational, not a bad cut. Are you recommending another Song of Travel to better the odds of pulling it? I can't attach it to Éowyn and get two Spirit resources per turn, or can I?

The Song of Travel is for better drawing chances and no, you cannot put it on Éowyn for more resources, it just makes characters get the resource icon, meaning that, say you attach it to Bifur, he gains the resource icon. It in no way effects the how many resources you gain each round.
