Thanks for having a look at this deck. I've had quite a bit of fun playing it. Give it a try and let me know what you think!

Main Ideas

  • Arwen's ability also works for Erestor since he's Noldor
  • Keeping everything cheap so I can play all of the cards in my hand every round
  • Erestor's exceptional card drawing makes Keeping Count a viable card. The first copy goes on Aragorn then other copies go on Erestor and Arwen in that order. I've seen Erestor's and Arwen's attack bonuses get up to +6 in some games
  • Henamarth Riversong and Wingfoot pair really well with Aragorn.
  • Light of Valinor and the first copy of Unexpected Courage go on Erestor. Now he can supplement Aragorn's attacks and/or defend then exhaust to heal Aragorn with the Healing Herbs all in the same turn.
  • Song of Travel also goes on Erestor. There are not very many green cards that you need to spend resources on so this song helps you pay for the spirit cards. This is key to being able to play most if not all of your cards each round.
  • Galadhrim Weaver is an excellent card in this deck. It recycles copies of Elrond's Counsel, A Test of Will, and Feint back into the deck. This coupled with Erestor's card drawing have made it possible for me to play the counsel 4+ times a game!
  • The Elven Jeweler is a great card to see in your opening hand since you will never be able to play all of your cards on the opening turn. Those you can not, you simply discard to bring her in for free.

Nice one! As you pointed out, this is quite similar to a deck I use here. The red-splash in your deck is interesting --- since you're going the tactics route, you might consider some of the Tactics-Nolder Allies, since they interact nicely with the high discard from Erestor.

You might also be interested in this variant of the deck that also uses tactics.
