The site path in King Block is incredibly boring, but it makes this deck possible thanks to the natural abundance of plains.

I'll bid 3 to go first, which is a lot less dangerous for this deck than for many others. Grimbold ensures plains for Asfaloth and Elfhelm, I favor him under Arwen but above the other companions most of the time until at least site 6. The only time I might not use him is at site 5. Replacing Anduin Banks* with Pelennor Plain in particular breaks a lot of hearts, haha. Since I'm almost always ahead Strong Arms goes on the non-plains sites I've passed: 1, 3, sometimes 5, 6, and 8. Elfhelm is a real monster towards the end. I went with Skilled Tactician instead of Third Marshal of Riddermark because Arwen is the main fighter so replaying An Honorable Charge is about all I need to do most of the time, plus he's another Valiant for Let Us Be Swift. I probably want to add in Deor and Leowyn. Sam too. And I'm not sure yet whether Swift Steed is doing any good in practice over Rider's Mount.

Shadow side just capitalizes on what the FP are doing: Black Steed is unstoppable. I might add a copy or two of Morgul Detachment since Black Steed cuts out the usual weakness, that a Nazgul at only 9 or 10 strength is easily slain and the bigger ones are hard to afford. Old Villain should probably make an appearance to protect against archery as well. The Shadow side is in need of more attention but really it's just here to stop the opponent. A giant fierce minion is a pretty straightforward way to make that happen.

Gotta be honest, this seems pretty much the best!
