Strategy:

Your main sites are Rhosgobel, Buhr Widu, Eagle’s Eyrie and Wellinghall. Always move Ragagast’s company through maximum number of Wilderness to draw as many cards as possible.

Leave Wacho at Rhosgobel, where he will play Marvels Told and Blackbole. Your main company should stick together if possible, as it is safer that way. Only if you have enough cancel in hand, should they divide. If you have nothing to play, move to Buhr Widu and draw lots of cards. Note that movement between Buhr Widu and Wellinghall requires Cram for an extra region.

Peath is good if you need to fight a Ringwraith, so she should get Glamdring.

If you want to do CvCC with Radagast, you may want to divide the company as other characters are not very strong.

Tap Radagast to sideboard when you have Hundreds of Butterflies, so he can get untapped during movement/hazard phase.

Note that normally you do not have enough SP for playing Girdle of Radagast. You should have multiple companies at Rhosgobel and/or Deep Mines to achieve this.

MARK:

Comment on R5: is this possible now that you've changed it to ruins and lairs, not just any site? What about an underdeeps opponent?...

MIKKO:

The reason it's R&L is theme. There are plenty of R&L sites out there, but no, it won't necessarily be possible every turn. The two games I played with this deck I managed to get this VP though.

I am aware there is no getting this VP against someone who sticks only to underdeeps, just like seized by terror in Khamul deck. The solution is to have the underdeeps decks move upstairs a bit as well (maybe going for their 'interactive' VPs), at least when they face a non-underdeeps opponent.

I am sure some VPs will change at least for this and Khamul deck, but for now I think we should make a few new decks. The VPs are a good way to balance the decks, make them harder if the deck seems too strong. Radagast is quite strong because he draws a lot of cards, but we'll need to see how other decks fare against him.
