The Oath of Eorl

Description

A prety nice and thematic pair of decks. The main point is to hold back enemies at the staging area and snipe with Dúnhere and Faramir. The Rohan deck can quest very well, and manage nasty locations, while Gondor hits hard and distributes resources.

Good to see Terrible to Behold in a deck! Looks like a fun fellowship.

Looks like a fun deck, although I'm unsure how you intend to keep enemies in the staging area with starting threat of 30. There also seems to be very little threat reduction overall - which seems like something you might want to consider if you are going to be planning on not engaging enemies.

I might recommend looking at Fastred and maybe Woodmen's Clearing for the Gondor deck.

You're right. Originally I didn't want to merge characters, but I was considering switching Faramir for Éowyn and including Fastred instead of Háma. Doing so will give me a more classic Ta+Le and Lo+Sp decks.

I will take note on including more threat reduction. Thank you for the advice.

Let me know what you come up with - I've been wanting to see a good Faramir staging area attack list.

(Also, a possibility if you want to lower your starting threat and maybe change focus a little bit - swap Hama out for Fastred and then swap Boromir out for Damrod. That will help you play your traps, and Denethor with Steward of Gondor can probably take care of most of your cards.)
