Strategy -
Bid 1 or 0 to go second.  This fellowship is weakest against Nazgul and if you are forced to go first with the Nazgul friendly sites you could be in a world of trouble.  If I'm forced to go first, I always single step to 2 and 3.  If I go second, depending on hand set up I double move to 3.

Your freeps will cycle like crazy giving you plenty of hobbits to sacrifice with horn.  If not going against uruk hai, use bounder to save your allies (15 strength to overwhelm).  Use frodo to heal bounder or Bilbo at the start of each turn.  Party guests will heal everyone else! 

Shadow - just straight up uruk beatdown.  It accounts for everything extremely well - sometimes has trouble with Last Alliance decks depending upon draw - power's quickly negate that. 

One of the most fun decks I've ever built and completely original!  Has over a 60% win percentage on GEMP.

Nice deck! How are you getting consistent cycling, though? In an 80 card deck, finding Silinde or Master Proudfoot early enough sounds tricky. Still, it looks fun. I think I'll give it a try myself. Are most of your victories Shadow victories? That seems to be the big advantage, choke and cycle so you can play what you want against an unprepared Free Peoples.

Hey Phallen -

Absolutely.  The site 3 is huge for getting set up - if you haven't been able to draw a horn yet, you will almost assuredly grab one then.

The shadow side wins for this deck 95% of the time.

The reason you are having so much trouble with Nazgul at sites 2 and 3 is that there are no copies of Hobbit Intuition and Hobbit Stealth! Even with Boromir's Horn doing the heavy lifting for your squad, I think you should consider having a few copies of those in the deck.
