Éowyn awkwardly tags along with Aragorn and Arwen Undómiel.

I've barely tested this deck at all, but it is designed to quest rush as fast as possible to power through quests like Into Fangorn. It will quest like crazy but it severely lacks in combat. This deck will definitely need support if it engages any enemies.

Celebrían's Stone goes on Aragorn, mainly to give him the Spirit icon since the deck is weighted towards Spirit. Faramir can be played with Stand and Fight if you are lacking Leadership resources. Once Sword that was Broken and Faramir are in play, most of your allies will be questing for 4.

Too funny. I also have a "Third Wheel" deck: ringsdb.com

Gets a like from me for the title alone, but the spine of this looks solid. Curious how you plan to get Faramir into play consistently with only one hero at the moment and no resource acceleration...I'm also wondering if Ancient Mathom is more valuable than Valiant Sacrifice.

That's hillarious! I like has been returned! Though I think Eowyn would feel like more of a 3rd wheel than Galdor would given her feelings for Aragorn. :D

As for getting Faramir into play, you can do it either by discarding him then playing him with Stand and Fight, or by giving Arwen's resource to Aragorn for 2 turns.

Yes, in solo, Ancient Mathom would definitely be the better card but this is a multiplayer deck and I want to be able to easily target myself for the card draw. Plus it's a bit of a sphere balancing thing if Aragorn doesn't have Celebrian's Stone yet.

Fair enough. I was just curious because I assume you'll be triggering Aragorn's ability relatively frequently. And...you don't know Galdor like that lol

looks like a solid deck. i would make some minor adjustments:

add 3 Rhovanion Outrider and 1-3 Galadhrim Weaver discard, West Road Traveller and Silvan Refugee for that

would include some Dwarven Tomb to recycle A Test of Will or Elrond's Counsel would discard each 1 of

Angbor the Fearless Valiant Sacrifice and Sword that was Broken

or if others has somelocationcontrol too ths Steed of Imladris

Nice idea! However, Misty Mountain Journeyman is hardly worth it in the questing deck.

@doomguard @NERD thanks for the suggestions! I removed both copies of Silvan Refugee and Misty Mountain Journeyman. I initially was just trying to pump out as much will power as I could as quickly as I could so the 1-cost for 2- was tempting. I see that neither of them really for the deck though. I also removed a copy each of West Road Traveller and Valiant Sacrifice and added 3 each of Galadhrim Weaver and Rhovanion Outrider.
