Strategy | edit
This deck is very easy to play. Ents are eally good and I hope people see that.

For the Free Peoples side, play all of your stuff when you can. Twilight doesnt really matter. The Ents have enough strenght to let them beat up most shadow cultures. Trackers dont have much cause i dont play anything on my guys. Moria is an easy match up cause they will never get enough guys out to beat 9 guys and one of them is defender +3 and one is Defender +1. No one will get on swarms and deep in thought will get rid of their conditions cause moria cant really drain the pool. Nazgul are a tough match up but you have a lot of wounds to take before people start dying so doubling shouldnt be that hard as long as you have 9 guys out. Any archery deck is not that bad cause of all of the vitality in the deck. One game I had 25 wounds on my guys and no one was that close to death. Dunland is pretty easy cause they NEED pump to win most the the fights. I think that os most of the match ups for the Free Peoples.

The Shadow is a complete rip off of Alan Sagan's Worlds shadow side, but its ok cause I play it better =). Its pretty easy to understand but hard to play. Use Saruman Snows at 9 when Saruman is out with his staff and make site 9 a site 7 and watch your opponant cry, well maybe not cry but you understand what Im trying to get across. If you need anymore explaination look at Serpent's 2000 dollar deck. He can explain it WAY better than I ever could.

Well thats it, This is a really fun and good deck. I suggest tring it out before bashing it because its Ents. They really set-up the Shadow better that anything I have played it with.

Thanks for Reading,
