Strategy:
Well The FP side of this deck is strong – but the SH side is extremely experimental. More for fun really to show that the Tentacles are possible although somewhat lacking in strength and numbers still – although you can still win with them with a little more luck than most shadow sides ;-)

The FP side is a Trust Me deck with a Rohan Twist – rather than the common multi culture Trust Me decks etc…. this gets around the new Grima Chief Counsellor ;-)

A very strong FP deck with 3 Gandalf Signet companion’s being in play as soon as you get Gandalf out (Gandalf, Theoden + frodo) that gives the Trust Me’s their optimal use from the word go ;-)

You’ll Either pull a Gandalf or Wizard is Never Late to get him. If you pull Gandalf and a Wizard later, use that to grab Albery (assuming your playing against moria or Isengard?).

Gandalf will have plenty of vitality for Trust Me’s with his staff and ring ;-)
There’s lots of mounts in there to make use of the applicable sites.

The shadow side does rely on you to get Evil-Smelling Fens out to use your tentacles but once that happens you’ll be already to take over – with a total of 12 tentacles available + 4 foul things to get them back again ;-) Gollum with his Fens can help you get them back too ;-) makes optimum use of that condition should you get more than the 1 you need in play ;-) Their not unique which is a good thing.

Other Notes:

Well that’s it in a nut shell – I ‘ve been sitting back with all of my deck’s written down and haven’t posted them anywhere (till now) sorry for bombarding you with all of these totally different decks etc… but that’s how I do them, I write them down in a note pad – build them and play with them, and then once I get around to it I type them up for you guys to browse over and perhaps try yourself. The FP side can be compatible with most SH sides where as this SH side is purely for fun ;-)
