This Elven choke deck focuses on skirmish events, using the texts of Elrohir and Elladan to the fullest.
--- end description ---

Note: This deck is for Cobraís Challenge, and thus includes at least 1 card from every set that has a FP card in it.

Ring-bearer
Galadriel, Bearer of Wisdom
The One Ring, The Ring of Rings

Free Peoples (33)
Elrohir, Son of Elrond
Elladan, Son of Elrond
Nenya, Ring of Adamant x2
Phial of Galadriel x2
Glimpse of Fate x2
Hosts of the Last Alliance x2
Border Defenses x2
Supporting Fire x2
That is No Orc Horn x2
Forearmed x2
Defiance x2
Still Needed x2
Life of the Eldar
Fleet-footed x2
Attunement x2
Final Shot x2
Point Blank Range x2
Lothlorien Guides x2

Strategy
As you can see, this deck is comprised mostly of a ton of Elven skirmish events. In fact, the only card that adds twilight during the fellowship phase is Hosts of the Last Alliance.

With so little twilight being added, many fewer minions will be played, resulting in very few wounds. That is No Orc Horn, Nenya, Ring of Adamant, and Hosts of the Last Alliance all protect your companions enough to get by, and with sanctuaries + Old Forest Road youíll be doing fine.

Corruption isnít as issue, since Galadriel has 8 resistance. Slap a Phial of Galadriel on her, and suddenly she has 10 resistance! Your opponent wonít be able to play as many cards as usual, so that aids you even more. And to top it all off, Orc corruption is completely eliminated by the fact that the deck is nearly completely events.

That is No Orc Horn also assists against site control decks, and Lothlorien Guides keeps your opponentís conditions in check.

I made deck this fairly fast, so please let me know if you spot something wrong with it.

Thanks!

How about adding a card from shadows, or someone might say this deck is illegal for the competition. Wink

Add three copies of Elven Bow, and cut Life of the Eldar and go with A Grey Ship. Then the deck would really work well together. It would be 36 cards...but it would be completely usable.

I originally included the Elven Bows in the deck, but I threw them out after I thought about it for a second. 3 archery normally wonít stop a swarm, because any half-decent swarm deck should have enough vitality to cope with it.

Well...with A Grey Ship, it could heal three companions. As is, thereís no point to Life of the Eldar, so A Grey Ship with Elven Bow s makes every card useful.
