Sites
 Buckland Homestead
 Crossroads of the Fallen Kings
 East Road
 Mount Doom
 Morannon Plains
 Hill of Sight
 The Angle
 Trollshaw Forest
 Sirannon Ruins

Strategy:  Get all companions out ASAP, and assign weaker minions to Faramir.  Then use all the brilliant cards that give you nice buffs to start killing minions.  With the shadow you start by hoping you get a SSA fast.  Use that to make them put companions back and then exhaust them using either, SbW or The Witch-King, Black Lord.  Once in region two start bombing them using Dark Fell About him.  Use Toldea to pull it back and then repeat.  Drop Throne of the Dark Lord at the first chance you get so that in region 3 you use Mount Doom in the hopes that you can use it to corrupt their RB as its basically a free 2-burdens.

Saruman, Master of the White Hand and Undead of Angmar with another [Wraith] Wraith equals -5 resistance with TotDL at Mount Doom. It's tricky but I have always wanted to pull it off.

Talking about resistance, give Faramir the Ring of Rings. You could run Swordthain and Home and Hearth for burdens.

I was concerned about burdens but I can also add threats and I thought that Hearts raised would help with those.  I didn't think of Undead of Angmar though probably because he needs a wound on the RB (Not hard) needs another wraith in hand (unlikely) and is also only active for one turn.  Also the new wraiths would wind up cluttering the deck space and most likely wouldn't actually wind up helping.  Saruman would work though I'll try that.

With the shadow you start by hoping you get a SSA fast.

Any deck which has its strategy worded this way has to play the maximum number of the card in question, unless que card is tutorable (meaning, you can go find it in your deck), you are playing the maximum number of tutors, the card sucks in more than a singleton (so, once you have 1, you don't even want anymore of them) and the tutors can find other utility stuff. Since it clearly seems not to be the case, you should play 4 copies of it.

Undead of Angmar lets you pull Wraiths from your deck.

Oh I missed that.  Just took this deck up on GCCG and got killed, forest nazzy/elves.   I couldnt get the essential card out in time and it wound up killing me later on.
