Back around 2018 I was working at Walmart. Their customer value program was a system that marked down prices of food that was expiring soon. Walmart could still make a sale, and the customer could get a better price. Anyway, I was working on a deck that utilized the archery components of Aragorn and Legolas. I found that I really only needed them instead of getting a bow on Arwen, or Haldir, or a horn on Boromir (which can take up a lot of space). I wanted to try a deck that would get me the most bang for my buck - the most amount of substantive archery for the least amount of twilight. It serves to choke as well as create some affective wounding.

Starting Fellowship used to just start with Heir to the White City, pulling Sam site 1, with four copies of Legolas in the deck. Nowadays, I run four hobbits starting Fellowship (bidding 3 - 5 burdens to go first). Sam and Pippin take care of 4 burdens and all hobbits (except Frodo) are expendable. It's nice to have five companions starting out. I'm am almost always able to make it to site 3 on a double (being sure to kill off at least one hobbit). From there, drop a Legolas (or earlier if you dare to face the unforgiving wrath of Enquea) and choke your way to victory with lots of wounding options. All four elf allies get you safely to site 6, utilizing secret sentinels, wounding texts, and soaking up skirmishes on their home site.

3 Aragorn's bows is pushing it, but I love some of the combos you can create with it and Greenleaf. Occasionally, I'll burn a PATH if it's a good fit, or I've got too many in hand - but usually, I try to save 3 to 4 of them for site 9.

Shadow is fairly standard Moria. I am often able to produce a Cave troll on both 4 and 5 which makes it difficult to double for the opponent. Admittedly, the shadow gets a bit weak after 5. It is a mid-game shadow. But hopefully, if all goes well, I am ahead by that point and can make it to 9 first. As of writing this, the deck has 108 wins, 27 losses with a 80 percent win rate.
