Dain's Dire Dwarves
These simple decks - mostly from the first two cycles only - should allow you to tackle the first couple of cycles fairly easily. I put these together back in the day when the first couple of cycles came out, but we used them again recently (22/08/20) after getting frustrated with some of the newer decks and made mincemeat out of the core quests. I just recently added Azain Silverbeard to replace Horseback Archers but you could swap them back in if you don't have the Silverbeards. Dain You - mulligan for Steward of Gondor. Bloomin Gimli - mulligan for Horn of Gondor or Unexpected Courage. Let the decks do the work - away you go!
