Frodo, OBH
The One Ring, The Ruling Ring

FP (35 cards)
Sam, Faithful Companion
Pippin, HoSi
Merry, Horticulturalis
Gandalf, The Gray Pilgrim
Ottar, Man of Laketown
4x Elrond, Lord of Rivendell
3x A Wizard is Never Late
Bilbo, WSG
Farmer Maggot, CoR
2x Hobbit party Guest
Bill the Pony
2x A talent of not being seen
2x Sting
3x Hobbit Sword
3x A promise
4x Hobbit Stealth
O Elbereth Gilthoniel
3x Consorting with Wizards

Choke, cycle and choke more! Gandalf is just to play Ottar and Elrond, you can kill him later.


4x Bill Ferny, SSF
4x Saruman, SotE
4x Isengard Smith
2x Ulaire Nertea, MoDG
2x Morgul Skulker
2x The Palantir of Orthanc
2x Saruman's Power
3x Saruman's Snows
3x Saruman's Frost
3x Spies of Saruman
2x Helpless
2x Memory of Many Things
2x Hollowings of Isengard

And here is it. In my opinion there's response for everything:
Sam - Nertea + Helpless
Sting/Hobbit Sword/Bow of Galadhrim - Isengard Smith
Vilya/Albert Dreary - Skulker + Memory
Choke- Hollowings
Secret Sentinels - Palantir
Stealh/Intuition/Trust/PATHS - Snows
Archery/Splash Greenleaf or Bow - Spies
Frost is obvious.
I'd like to cut some cards, for example to 32/side. Any ideas?

How can you say "no"?

Hollowings is not needed, choke won't pose a problem, since the deck plays on very little twilight anyway. Also, since all you need is to get rid of bounder, Wraith cards that discard allies might suit you better, and since you don't actually need to protect Hollowings and Weather Conditions require they have the card available, which might not happen, you can probably cut down on Palantirs, or even skip it entirely (you could also play Tower Assassin, both as a Bounder trump and as a source of Sauron vitality, should you need it.).

Allies are problem. Not Bounder (Bounder is no problem at all, Saruman's Snows takes care of him), but Elves that play Secret Sentinels. With Palantir you can get lucky, but if you have to get rid of nearly whole opponent's hand, you run out of twilight.

My version of Ferny:

Ring-bearer: Frodo, Reluctant Adventurer
Ring: The One Ring, Isildur's Bane

Adventure deck:
The Prancing Pony
Midgewater Marshes
House of Elrond
Pass of Caradhras
The Bridge of Khazad-dum
Caras Galadhon
Anduin Confluence (no Secret Sentinels)
Gates of Argonath (no Secret Sentinels once again)
Slopes of Amon Hen

Free Peoples Draw Deck:
1x Gimli, Dwarf of Erebor
1x Legolas, Greenleaf
4x Gandalf, The Grey Pilgrim
1x Aragorn, Ranger of the North
1x Boromir, Lord of Gondor
1x Sam, Proper Poet
1x Thrarin, Dwarven Smith
4x Elrond, Lord of Rivendell
1x Albert Dreary, Entertainer From Bree
1x Barliman Butterbur, Prancing Pony Proprietor
1x Ottar, Man of Laketown
1x Glamdring
1x Sting
1x Gandalf's Staff
1x Narya
4x A Wizard Is Never Late
1x Sleep Caradhras
4x Hobbit Stealth

Shadow Draw Deck:
3x Isengard Smith
3x Isengard Warrior
3x Saruman, Servant of the Eye
3x Uruk Savage
3x Bill Ferny, Swarthy Sneering Fellow
1x Parry
2x Saruman's Power
3x A Fell Voice on the Air
1x Hollowing of Isengard
1x No Business of Ours
2x Saruman's Frost
2x Saruman's Snows
2x Spies of Saruman
1x Trapped and Alone

This is 30 cards per side and works quite well.

That's why I use Memory of Many Things. Not many people use more than 2 elven allies (elrond for healing/draw and galadriel). In my opinion Parry is useless here - Smith can remove all nasty possessions. By the way, how do you want to ged rid of Sam?

NOTE: I found very nice way to defeat Sam. Otsea. "Exert Ulaire Otsea to make a  Wraith minion fierce until the regroup phase". A  Wraith minion  Twisted! Twisted! Twisted! Why not to kill two birds with one stone? Or rather 2 halflings with one Ferny  Twisted!

Just so you know, people use more than 2 elf allies. Its not uncommon to see orophin and rumil there IF you see galadriel.

Yes, Galadriel + Rumil, Orophin and, sometimes, Celeborn, are a given. Otherwise it's just Elrond.
