Seastan's Boromir 2-handed
Here is the 2-handed version of my Solo Boromir deck.
The pairing here is so strong that I would stand by the statement that it could beat any quest, Nightmare included, even if you were to play as if there were three people in the game. It's already been tested in this mode of play against some of the hardest quests in the game, like The Battle of Carn Dûm. Against standard quests in regular two-player mode it will just embarrass the encounter deck.
Basic Instructions: Boromir starts as first player. Mulligan for Dunedain Signal or Peace and Thought. Spirit player mulligans for Arwen, unless the Boromir player found a Signal. If so, mulligan for Brand/Song of Wisdom/Master of the Forge.
Get the following on Boromir ASAP, in this priority:
- Dúnedain Signal (or have Arwen Undómiel in play)
- Gondorian Shield
- Song of Wisdom and A Burning Brand
- Steward of Gondor
- Gondorian Fire
- Blood of Númenor
Use Beravor to draw all the time. The Aragorn player normally needs it more because they don't have Peace, and Thought.
Theodred's resource goes on Boromir 70% of the time, at least until he has a large pool. The rest of the time it generally goes on one of the Aragorn's player's heroes. Note that Theodred can only give a resource to the Aragorn player on rounds where Aragorn is first player.

Note: The two decks are fully dependent upon one another for attachments, and should only played together. For a solo deck of the same style, see my deck linked above.
