Below is the Silvan Galadriel, Celeborn, Grima deck I have been testing. The deck list includes the cards I am using for proxies, although many of the stats for the allies and heroes are not a perfect match. Overall it's a pretty fun deck if you want to get a taste of what silvan strategies are like. The enter and exit play mechanic is really key to making a silvan deck work with Celeborn. Being able to play a low cost silvan ally from your hand a few times is way better having the ally remain in play. So events that return allies to your hand work really nice in the deck, also with Galadriel the allies will not exhaust to quest when they return. Silvan Refugee is an amazing card for triggering all these events and is a superstar in the deck.
With this deck, I could easily quest for 8 wp each round and have no allies or heroes exhausted, so when combat came everyone was ready. i think Grima really helps jump start the deck, especially if keys are attached to Galadriel early on along with Nenya.
I think Silvan is going to have problems with dealing lots of damage to an enemy, unless tactics and Legolas is accessible. Stats on silvan allies when in play after the first round are not to impressive. Also, chump blocking is not the best way to handle defending either since your allies are valuable and you need to keep them alive to get the bounce effects to work, so dealing with 6+ attack enemies regularly will be a problem. Have not tried battle and siege quests, but I suspect this may be a difficult for the trait too.
Generally, I'm super stoked on how silvan trait and these 2 new heroes are working.

Edit: Silver lamp is really great card with Galadriel. With multiple enimies engaged a single burning brand might not target an enemy with a debilitating shadow. With silver lamp, it's easy to see how to distrbute the damage, Silvan trackers can clean it up at the end of the round, i think SL works real nice with since her I usually have her ready until after combat and tend to draw card and reduce threat then even with Nenya. I favor card draw over the extra WP unless I'm in a pinch.
