This is the deck I used for my Single Core Set series of videos to beat The Massing at Osgiliath. You can check out the video here:

The way the deck works is to keep your threat low so [Dúnhere] armed with Dúnedain Marks can attack into the staging area. This lets you avoid the nasty shadows as much as possible and the triggers on the enemies themselves.

Glóin is a damage soak and helps pay for things (like always). He and Éowyn provide the early as you build your boardstate.

The single copy of Daughter of the Nimrodel is there if you can pull off a Stand and Fight combo.

This deck is set up to get you to turn 3. If you can avoid engaging the Wolves on turn 1, you should be able to kill them using Dunhere with a Mark, or Gandalf on turn 2. I have found that having to engage the wolves on turn 1 can end a lot of games with the cards available to me.
