Game Update: I am now in Turn 13. TIme has included remaking Gandalf's and Cirdan's decks for the next iteration.
What I did was switched mini-strategies: Cirdan exchanges his minion elf influence theme with Gandalf's Palantir of Elositirion theme.
Necromancer will also see his deck changed by devoting more to ring testing, so those fun resources like Curse/Kin will be removed, but
only if the Warlord Phase is used after 16 turns. Oh, Witch-king will ditch playing Ghost-bane at Riddle Caves since he cannot
defeat that Trap attack under any luck. But he did wound Elrond Half-elven with Vasmacil/Blades of Sorcery, but Pale Sword was not in the discard pile to play.


ANALYSIS
Overall I think Elrond Half-elven is performing well. His 15 MP are healthy, but 23 cards in the playdeck after 8 turns is a sore sight. He has drawn 9.5 cards per turn, but Vilya will make things worse.

Long-time Visitor is in play so Strider can be played at Rivendell as a follower to Elrond. Cards now in hand show that only the faction needs to be drawn to get the main mission underway.

Emissary of the House is vulnerable with a low 7 body; one was killed. All the sideboard resources to be in the discard pile are already there. 18 of 77 cards drawn or so were discarded from hand; that is high. Each Dark Quarrels was discarded, but might be recycled before exhaustion. Dunlending Raiders keep losing their raiding instructions.
Only three sites have been tapped, but these are three of the top five dangerous sites this player will visit. Nine movements included eight with Double Wilderness! Ford is now a consideration for this player.
Witch-king has five opportunities to play hazards against a moving company and only twice played a creature, which one was able to via an agent. Elrond did kill a pumped Chill Douser with 8 strikes and 11 prowess.
Erestor needs to wear that Hauberk of Bright-mail else he will be killed. Earth from Galadriel’s Orchard needs to be played and stored soon for Gandalf.
