I used this deck for the sixth quest of my Saga Campaign. I am going to try and keep it as thematic as possible, stemming from the 'What If?' of 'What if Gandalf didn't escape from Orthanc in The Fellowship of the Ring?' Please note, I don't own all the cards, so am not able to make the most powerful thematic deck theoretically possible, but constrained by what I have, here is my best attempt.
The Fellowship set out from Rivendell, comprised of the Ringbearer Frodo son of Drogo, his faithful servant Samwise and his cousin Merry. Accompanying them is the heir to the throne of GOndor, Aragorn son of Aragorn and Faramir, son of the Steward Denathor. Also with them is the mighty elf-lord Glorfindel and the sons of Elrond, Elladan and Elrohir. After decidinn to avoid the Redhorn Pass for fear of the elements, the company made their way to Moria, where at the Doors of Durin they narrowly escaped being caught between the fury of a warg-pack and the grasp of a Nameless Thing of the depths, known only as The Watcher. Now they have only the option of journeying through the belly of the Mountain, through the ancient kingdom of Khazad-dum, where there may be more than just orcs stirring there.
This Deck is designed to handle the questing side of the scenario. Light of Valinor and Celebrían's Stone will buff up Glorfindel and Aragorn respectively, with Sword that was Broken will provide a universal willpower boost for this deck. Steward of Gondor will be used mainly to help power Aragorn's ability, though through it he will also be able to pay for some of the expensive attachments that this deck has to offer, such as the aforementioned Sword that was Broken and Unexpected Courage. Given that this scenario has exclusively Underground locations, we need to get Ever My Heart Rises on Gimli from Deck Two as soon as possible to make the most out of his stats and keep their threat under control. Elrond's Counsel should provide cheap threat control for this deck. With regards to defense, once I get the boons Anduril and Sting onto Aragorn and Frodo, with Dúnedain Warnings and Hobbit Cloaks supplementing, this deck should also be able to handle most of the defending with inbuilt counterattacks thrown in.
This deck represents The Fellowship as they journey through the Mines of Moria. There are less allies as a result, but far more attachments to make the most out of the heroes that we have for the company will need to survive on their own, making the best of the tools that they brought in with them to escape The Black Pit.
