The point of this deck is to use cards like The Tree People and Borne Aloft to reuse arrivel effects along with a small benefit, such as another ally, of chump blocking.
The deck is mostly fun, but does decently. It uses a lot of threat reduction to avoid hitting the threat events, because it is often incapable of handling them. Warrior sword goes on Erkenbrand and Legolas, or Éowyn if she already has a Star Brooch attached.
The deck has no healing, so treat your heroes health with care. Mostly, use allies to block. Take advantage of any healing fate events.
Get the Orcs! is a stellar board clear, but in quests 1-2, there aren't many orcs, so switch it out for a copy of Guard of the Citadel.
