My shadow beatdown, with gollum to lead the dance!

Fat One Wants It 2x
Incited
Not Yet Vanquished
Plotting 2x
Deceit 2x
Heavy Burden
Not Alone
Not Easily Avoided
Treacherous Little Toad
Captured By The Ring 4x
Horribly Strong 2x
Led Astray 4x
So Polite 4x
Gollum, Threatening Guide
The Balrog, Demon of Might 3x
Sauron, The Lord of the Rings

The goal is to bring out The Rog! How to do it? Mostly I let the other person walk on my sites. I have site manipulation on both sides, fellowship as well as shadow.
Play Gollum, add some threats, discard him to wound, bring him back with So Polite, play Led Astray to add 3 and to give Bridge of Khazad-dum and play the Rog at minus 3. That is the main idea. Gollum can deal a puch, but fierce, damage 2 minion that skips both maneuver and archery is the main attraction.
I can also generate some burdens, and they can be helpful. With some burdens and some threats it can be nice to play Sauron as well. Imagine the following situation. My opponent is on site 6. Just had his sanctuary and being all happy. Has 5 companions, makes 2-3 twilight, has 3 burdens and 5 threats. Not a very hard picture to imagine. He walks to a site that gives 3 twilight. That brings my total to 16 or maybe even 17 twilight. I play So Polite, adding more twiligth, play Led Astray, more twilight and the Bridge and then I can play both the Rog and Sauron!
It is a fun deck, and there are lotís of things that would probably kill it -Shadowplay for example- but it has a potential threat!

Could you explain how you get this deck to work with only 5 minions? You could go hand after hand without one minion! Fair enough, NEA and CbtR are basically copies of Gollum, but do you just wait to drop the combo?

it is small, and almost everything is pointed at making the combo work. Once one Balrog has showed up, youíre in business. Not Alone is there to grab the Balrog back, but yeah, you need a little luck. Thatís why it is a fundeck!
