Many decks are designed to be able to steamroll any type of scenario by including the heaviest hitters or the most broken combos. This deck does the opposite. Although it does include two household staples in Galadriel and ally Glorfindel, it does its job using more subtle combinations and techniques. This deck will not take you through the Battle of Carn Dum. It will however take you through many another less violent quest, and is also an excellent support deck if that is what you need. In fact, one advantage of this deck is that it includes many cards that are not commonly used in other decks, making it an easy compliment to your favorite trio.
As with any Galadriel deck, mulligan for Mirror of Galadriel. On the first turn, fish out Nenya. Use a lore resource to pay for this. The next order of action is on turn two, go and find Glorfindol. On turn three slap him down and you should be off to a running start. Paired with Galadriel, he will be able to handle questing, and paired with Idraen he will be able to knock off a few enemies. Rossiel will be the main defender. With Cloak of Lórien and her boost she will be able to handle most of what comes her way. Lembas is always there to clean up the collateral damage.
Some other notable cards include Curious Brandybuck. He will be only used for chump blocking. Never pay for him with resources; he should only be put into play via his ability. Leather Boots will go on Rossiel to provide at least a small amount of readying. Eryn Galen Settler is very important to give just enough attack boost to take out some of the nastier enemies. Last but not least is Ride Them Down. This is a very underrated card. In a deck that struggles to generate damage but is rife with willpower, this can be a game changer. In addition, there will be a buildup of Spirit resources later in the game. Because of this feel free to sacrifice Glorfindel as a chump blocker. He can even defend multiple attacks in a turn if need be.
If you are looking for a power deck than this should not be your first choice. But if you want a deck with some fun, not-so-common mechanics that requires a level of subtlety to play, than give this one a shot.
