Deck Strategy: This deck is a development on the card draw deck.

Try get one of the song of travel in play as quick as possible on Bifur.

Unexpected Courage's go on Beravor and Denethor.

Protector on Bifur then Denethor. Flaming Brands on Denethor and Bifur.

Use Zigil Miner and guess three unless you get Gildor in play then you can set up the card reveals. Gildur looks at three cards so you can setup two reveals.

This deck chews through cards at an alarming rate. So recycle with Will of the west.

You can use Denethor and Rumour to look at the encounter deck. If you have an excess of resources you can use longbeard map maker and increase his willpower.

The Erebor Record Keepers can be used on Bifur or the Zigil Miners. At a cost of one for their ability if you guess a three you have a net gain of two.

Nice deck. I built it up this evening, and attempted the three Khazad'dum quests - it defeated all three (though the seventh level need two attempts).

Impressive card draw and manipulation, each game i must have cycled through my deck at least three times.The Zigil miners/Gildor/record keepers provided excellent resource acceleration.

The only card choice i question, though, is Rumour from the earth - only once did i find myself playing it, and mostly i just wished it was Gandalf instead ( I had excess resources, and could have done with either the threat reduction or taking out a Golbin archer. I'll try swapping it and playing again at some point.
