Ok I finally have all the LOTR LCG Cards including the print on demand scenarios. I have very little time to play the game, let alone design a deck of my own. I don't need the best deck but I'm looking for something to start with the try out a few scenarios. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

You may try to look at cardgamedb.  There are plenty of decks you can use.

Here is one of the decks I have designed that works pretty well:

Gondor/Rohan (Leadership/Spirit)

Prince Imrahil

Starting Theat = 28

Snowbourn Scout x3
Faramir x3
Guard of the Citadel x3
Westfold Horse-Breaker x3
West Road Traveller x3
Escort from Edoras x3
The Riddermark’s Finest x3
Eomund x3
Elfhelm x3
Gandalf x3

Steward of Gondor x3

We Do Not Sleep x2
Astonishing Speed x3
Ride to Ruin x3
Mustering of the Rohirrim x3
For Gondor! X3
A Test of Will x2*


* For solo games increase to 3.

In addition, if you only possess a single core set (as I did originally) you can make a few minor adjustments - prehaps filling the vacancy left by the third Faramir, For Gondor! and A Test of Will cards with Grim Resolve, and/or two copies of Ever Vigilant or Common Cause.

Key Cards:

Theodred and Eowyn - quest each turn if possible, Theodred gives Eowyn the resource each time.

Steward of Gondor - attached to Eowyn to keep the Rohan allies coming each turn.

Mustering the Rohirrim - useful for pulling out cards like Eomund and Escort from Edoras.

Escort from Edoras - contributes a great deal of willpower when committed to a quest, allows Prince Imrahil to also commit to the quest because they leave play at the end of the quest phase, thus readying Imrahil for attack or defence.  

Eomund - use him as a primary blocker - when he dies everyone else in the deck (barring Faramir and Guards of the Citadel) ready allowing for swift retribution from (hopefully) a large number of Rohan allies and the three heroes. 

Other Cards to consider:

Nor am I a Stranger - ensures that Faramir and other Gondor Allies can benefit from the amazing Rohan keyword.  

Hoping this helps.
