Fantastic card to give card draw to Spirit decks. I added three to my Spirit deck. Great card!

Vital that the decks include options to deal with locations or gain a lot of willpower, as it is very easy to get location locked in this part of the quest.
Northern trackers and Faramir are a must, and If you are making core-set decks only, I'd make sure to bring the Snowbourn scouts and Lorien guides as well.
Ambush on the Shore

This can be very "swingy".
You may end up with a mob of big, mean monsters or you may luck out and get only a single band of goblins (or none at all).
Make sure to remember to skip staging.
A Test of Will

A card that is unlikely to be surpassed for quite a while.
Very cheap and with so many brutal Reveal effects in the game, it lets the heroes survive much longer.
A Light in the Dark

Not a great card once some expansions are added but while you are still in the first cycle of the game, having one or two around can help delay an unpleasant fight long enough to get a blocker into play.
Eagles of the Misty Mountains

I usually play solo, but run two decks: Spirit/Lore and Tactics/Leadership (only a little bit of Leadership). I also have a Leadership/Lore deck but don't normally run that one.
This is all I have for the time being:
2x Core Set

If you don't have Vassal of the Windlord and Winged Guardian, I would not consider trying to run these or Support. Are you playing solo or in a group? If you can get some resource accelleration - like Steward of Gondor - then Gondorian Fire is really good.

Is this thing worth running with Support of the Eagles in a fairly basic Tactics deck (not a dedicated Eagles one, since I don't have all the packs necessary)? Or should I replace this and Support with something else?

On either site your deck likely won't draw attention on it's own. So I'd suggest publishing the deck - on either/both - and then making a forum post linking to the deck and asking for suggestions. The FFG forums are quite a bit more active than these are for Lord of the Rings topics.

Thank you! How are the deck forums here? I want to post my deck lists and what sets I'm working with and see if I can get some suggestions. Unfortunately, after my Spirit/Lore deck and Leadership/Tactics (mostly Tactics) got schooled in Journey Down the Anduin, I think I can probably build them a lot better. But I'd really like to get Dread Realm and Arwen and use her in some way, even if it's in the discard shenanigans stuff. I just really love the Noldor and want to use them.

Not at all. Since it doesn't matter what card you discard, she works in whatever. She is best if you include 3x of Elven Light since it gives you the opportunity to convert that gained resource into card-draw instead, depending upon your circumstances.
That site has a real easy way of searching deck lists that include particular cards you want to use. And if it is by Seastan, it's likely to be a very good deck. That guy is pretty brilliant when it comes to deck-building.

Hands Upon the Bow and Legolas can easily take care of this thing before it can hurt you.

So, does she absolutely need the discard-style deck to function? Could I use her with Glorfindel and/or Galadriel? Can anyone tell me where I could find some good deck lists for a Spirit/Lore deck (particularly one that runs Ringmaker cycle, which I need to get more of)? I've tried putting together the best of what I can, but I have been waiting for an Arwen Hero and I really want to run her.

It's irrelevant in the discussed case: they add ressource icons, but not to the Vigilant Dunadan
Dec 21 2016 11:07 PM by slothgodfather
Well Narya on Gandalf is irrelevant - in regards to giving a resource icon - since it can't be used unless you also add Sword-thain, so the same could be said for Nenya and Vilya. I never play the ally versions of Galadriel or Elrond, so I completely forgot about their rings being able to go on them, otherwise I would have considered it.

People said you can block twice, and I didnt understand. Thanks for listing the procedure out, because now that I see it put in steps my eyes popped out of my head!
Dec 20 2016 11:34 PM by LoneElfRanger
What's so irrelevant about playing Narya on OH&UH Gandalf? He can stay in play for a while, potentially many turns if you have enough threat reduction.
Vilya and Nenya are truly irrelevant since after you play them on their respective Ally versions, they eventually leave play.
Dec 20 2016 04:08 AM by RichardPlunkett
I wanted to like that last comment, but while you included Narya, you completely left out the equally irrelevant Vilya and Nenya.

Are there any ways to give resource icons to allies? Because being able to make him green and thus a valid target for A Burning Brand would also be pretty sweet.
