This might not be a highly competitive deck but it works pretty well and its fun to play

Bill the Pony
Marvels Told x2
Men of Anorien
Withdrawn to Mordor x2
A Chance Meeting
Hauberk of Bright Mail

how to play it:
Hung around the southern regions with the main company playing some resources, you will set up your hand for a big end of game turn. Pallando enters play at rivendell at moves to lorien where he will wait for galadriel and earth of galadriel orchard.
The end of game turn consist in:
play Aragorn II on Strider, move to minas tirith, play return of the king, men of anorien, celebron with a chance meeting, and white tree while Pallando and Galadriel company plays a stealth and moves to a site in cardolan with automatic attack wich will be cancelled with farmer maggot and they will go to bag end, there, they can play Hobbits/ bill the pony and at end of turn phase, play safe from the shadow, store earth and play mallorn. As i said before, it's not a highly competitive deck but it works pretty well. I've never planted both trees but give it a try and if you can make it let me know  :wink:

hope you like it

I have a "similar" deck that uses Gandalf so he can come in at Lorien to get the Earth.  I play SacForm on him to allow him to come back at Rivendell, play White Wizard and plant Mallorn.

I would load more stuff in the deck that you can play first or 2nd turn, and bring the Rangers and Southrons in with one of your many SB access cards.  Why not put Maggot in st8 up?

I've always found a greater item weapon to be more useful than armor.

That end-of-turn Mallorn is a combo worth pursuing for its own sake.  I like it! :)

i like the SacForm combo, it's a great idea. Gandalf was an option too, but i decided to use Pallando because an only river can screw things up...

that's a very good suggestion, i will do that...

because i don't need it until i get earth

I decided to include mithril coat instead of the weapons because it's mainly vs hero so i don't want to bounce items, weapons greater items are more popular...

thanks for your advice!

Since Farmer Maggot is unique, having it straight in the deck might seem a better idea. A hero/fw opponent could play it before you.
