If a Balrog falls from a bridge and noone is around, does it make a sound?

Nice ideas! The only problem I see is that you're adding a lot of threats with only a small number of companions...and there's no way to remove those threats. With you sometimes killing off your own Wizards, I'd say removing threats is a must. Maybe toss in NFFatRoD, Elven Long Knife, and/or Citadel to Gate?

Hmmm I must be missing something. I see Gwaihir as the threat adder only. And most of the time he will just be getting spotted for Meneldor. He might see more action if say no other followers are in play. You can either do the sacrificial idea and in that case why attach a follower since they will be discarded. Or you can attach Melendor and either Pallando and/or Alatar. That triggers the Strange Meetings. While choking you should face to many beefy minions and surely a strength 17 Gandy and strength 14 Radagast can survive Thumbs Up. I added Gwaihir only because The Radagast follower couldn't be added and he is nice in case you face a Saruman who exerts (easy way to kill him off for a double or triple. Gwaihir wouldn't see much action anyway and if he did just place the threat on the other Wizard then he can be killed and replayed during the regroup phase  Grin.

Oh Yeah missed Sting, But not likely I would be using that text unless I had no choice but to run for a win late. Sting is mainly in here for the +2 strength pump Thumbs Up

I think DI was talking mainly about Sméagol.

Fair enough, but the fact that he's rare looks like you had a use for him! Wink

Yeah, Sting and Gwaihir were what I meant. I figured out quickly that poor Smeagol was just a decoy. Tongue

Possibly run Gandalf, Leader of Men and let him die as soon as you get Sent Back, then you can start Smeagol and a solid 2 twilight comp of your choice, Legolas, Fearless Marksman and Gimli, Eager Hunter come to mind (actually, probably not Legolas since you run Radagast's Staff. I like Smeagol, but not as fodder, possibly as his own choke engine, Safe Passage comes to mind.

I wouldn't want to move on that much in a deck since Radagast is actually a drawback to choking, since his ability helps cycle your opponent's hand. Possibly a good idea if you do run Smeagol with Gladden Homestead, as he'll get hands clogged with conditions cards. Especially since you then grab Gandalf, Returned to reinforce Gladden Homestead.

For style points, I'd run a Deceived Wizards shadow. Mr. Green! For competetiveness, maybe try Forestguls, running Smeagol + Sitepath rocking would be great.
