So this deck was a little worse for entire cycle, but better for SAF. I initially had some trouble out of the gate with Redhorn Gate, I almost changed my deck again becuase I thought it was going to be impossible. The basic strategy behind my deck is the entry above. Basically get the Light of Valinor on Glorfindel and get 2 copies of Feint in the other hand for Hama to disable enemies with.
The biggest reason I had to change decks was becasue my Lead/Tac deck was 50% events 30% char and 20% att. And while it worked well on 5 of the 6 chapters it failed miserably in SAF. First Legolas went bye bye and Hama was added for his ability to get Feint back into my hand. So that deck changed to include more low cost characters and slim down the events and attachments, I even reduced so many card I put some resource generation in. My Spirit/Lore deck suffered because going strictly on theme gave me too many high cost allies, which again worked well for 5 of the 6 chapters but when you cant get a low cost ally out to sacrafice to Durin's Bane it really hurts saying goodbye to a hero.
So once again my "theme" of Elves got spit up and I ended up with some men and dwarves in to help the elves out. I'm just disspointed mainly because there are so many great "dwarf decks" out there that really stick to a dwarves only theme. So for both Mirkwood and Dwarrowdelf I had to blow up my theme to get something that worked for the entire cycle.
So my scores went (score, wins/losses): TRG 198 1/4, RTR 119 1/2, TWITW 116 1/1, TLD 134 1/2, FOS 202 1/2, SAF 169 1/1.

Sorry for the delay for all those who like to check up on this. This is a tough cycle, and I have only had time to play about 3x a week lately and when you fail as much as I was it takes a while to get stuff done. Let me know if people out there are still interested, I should be moving on to my HoN box next and I am still thinking of a theme for that deck. I am thinking a Gondor/Rohan mix, but let me know what has worked out there for you guys.
Also for the community: am I too strict with my theme? When you guys theme a deck for say "Gondor" do you include dwarves, elves and rohan types to help?
