Boromir and Eowyn rescue Frodo, with some help from dad.

I'm trying to solo play the saga without Spirit. I've taken on the first three quests with quite a bit of success. Card draw is my main worry with a Purple and Red deck, but I find that Erestor, Foe-Hammer, Gandalf, and Galadriel are able to provide sufficiently for this. I had Legolas in there, but rarely got him out early for some reason.

Steward goes on the Steward. He can pass half the income to his son who loves to burn money. Eowyn keeps things afloat in the early game. I always forget to use her ability. By the time I need a lot of damage, Boromir can usually handle the witch king himself.

One problem that I ran into is defending against the witch king. I had to sacrifice Erestor to chump block his attack as Boromir and Denethor only have 1 WP are are ineligible to defend. I had Feint, but I've been playing that if an enemy is immune to play card effects, then they can't be Feinted. Same with Grimbold's ability. If I'm wrong on that, by all means let me know.

So far, so good.

Breezed through the first six saga quests now with this deck. I have actually only used the Rod once or twice. The rest of the card draw is usually sufficient. Favor of the Valar has been used almost every time. I might add a third copy just in case. I'm going to try hunting some Uruk-hai with Eowyn as the captive.

So, the Uruk-hai quest was very tough without Eowyn's early game questing power. I failed twice before I got an early Faramir that gave me the necessary questing power to scrape by. After that, it was a breeze.

Helm Deep was tough the first time around and I ended up threating out. Second time was a breeze. I used Gandalf for the threat reduction early on instead of card draw. I still closed out the game well into the valour range, but when the king was ready to ride out, Boromir took care of business.
