Hello everyone, I'm new to the LoTR LCG and i'm just wondering if anyone had any good solo decks using just the core set of cards.  I basically am going to learn the game to teach my friends and expand the playgroup :). Also any help or tips would be awesome.

More so made for 2nd core quest, should do fine against the 1st.  Basic strategy is for Gimili to take the troll turn 1 with use of Blade Mastery or Hasty Stroke if you have one to counter a +1 attack shadow card.  Turn 2 Aragorn takes the troll and Gimili attacks him.  If the troll is still alive on turn 3, you might have to just take the threat hit by throwing an ally at him for defense and Gimili should be able to kill him then.

Not the perfect deck, but you should win every now and then.
