Best supported by a hazard strategy dropping nazgul for no effect, I have found after facing such a hazard deck. For the rest, not too many creatures attack you or (after 2 fellowships) seriously affect you. Six items so you always draw some - for some reason that sometimes failed with only 5 items. I have been thinking of adding Short Rests, as a lot of my turns I spend in Angmar and Gundabad.

Nice deck kris. I played against karmi a while back and he had a similar deck to this.

I take it one of your starting minor items would have to be an Elf-stone and the other a Cram?

One might also think about adding the Wood Elves, if you're using Elves and up in the North most of the time anyway. If your opponent isn't using any corruption, it would help make use of those A Friend or Threes. Narsil might also be useful. In Glorfindel's hands he can control one of the Elves without the need for the Elf-stone.

those are indeed the starting items I forgot to add :)

Narsil has promise indeed ... it's just not in my stack of easy-accesible cards, so it is not in this deck :D

Out of assassin-fear I haven't added the wood-elves. Besides, the best bonus I'd get is +1 from Glorfindel and +1 from the faction ... that's not good enough :/

Besides, that company usually hasn't got many turns it has nothing to do (and those turns can be used slaying orc companies in CvCC :D )

I would reccomend going to get the woodelves only when you have a forewarned is forearmed in your hand, and playing it as an interrupt.

I had the Wood-elves and Gwaihir in and used Forwarned is Forewarned. FiF helps vs. Dol Guldur auto-attacks, too (only 1).

For nazgul defense I had Praise to Elbereth - if you dont expect any nazguls, you can always play them as +1 prowess boosters, if you use DoN hazard.
