Therefore at last the Council was again summoned and the lore of the Rings was much debated...

About this deck
A thematic deck that tries to get the most out of my favourite hero, Glorfindel. With this deck, I think I've finally archieved a build that is both thematic and powerful. Let's just pretend that Elrond does't exists, and couldn't do everything Glorfindel does but better.
Due to the number of Doomed cards, this deck is primarly built for solo play, but should work in multiplayer.
How does it plays
The deck takes a while to setup, the repetable threat reduction of Galadriel and Council of the Wise should allow you to turtle until you've built a decent board state.
Glorfindel is the focus of the deck, it's your main quester, defender and attacker: every attachment except Nenya and Mirror of Galadriel goes on him.
With a bit of luck you can get Glorfindel to quest for 5 , defend with 4 (Arwen Undómiel, Cloak of Lórien, Dúnedain Warning) and 8 (Ring of Barahir, Magic Ring, Spare Pipe, Celebrían's Stone) and attack for 3 .
Rumour from the Earth and Salvaged Supplies can be infinitely recurred and used to trigger the contract's response twice each round.
Elrond and Saruman can quest and attack/defend thanks to Galadriel's effect. Saruman can be fetched with The Seeing-stone if you need attack/defense power and don't mind the threat raise.
You can trigger Roving Herbmaster each turn with Galadriel's, further improving her action.
Substitute Sailor of Lune with Bree-land Protector in combat heavy quests, also a good alternative to Arwen Undómiel since she's a popular hero.
