Strategy: Run as fast as possible. I usually bid 6 looking to go first and pull Sam to go back to 3, Toldea/Eregion hills are my reasons not to bid 7. Focus of the deck is Aragorn and Frodo, all the other companions are expendible and should be killed off as needed. Try to stay at 4 companions to avoid Savagery to match their numbers and nertea, unless already played by opponent, deck chokes pretty well so nertea is usually only a concern later in the game.
List is 30/30, I have yet to run out of cards in a game and since it is highlander I don't want to dilute the deck at all.
The cards I think are the weakest and could be replaced by something else are secret sentinels and calaglin, usually you can ignore opponents conditions/secret sentinels never shows up for me when i need it. Calaglin could be galadriel or a different s6 ally. Worry and isengard smith seem the weakest to me on the shadow side, worry often doesnt come down in time, or you dont have enough twilight to play it effectively, and usually your opponent has an answer to smith and it might be better to play a different minion. But im not sure what good replacements for these would be, if anyone has suggestions that would be appreciated.
