Mithrandir!

I've been messing around with this deck since the rotation. I had seen Mithrandir version of Gandalf and wanted to build a deck around him. Using Elrond, Elven Lord with 2 of the artifacts available to Gandalf seemed like a good way to offset his cost. So far, it's a fun deck, but the major weakness has been site patch control. It did ok before the PSQ, but afterwards, with all the Corsairs running around, it doesn't do nearly as well. Amazing how a PSQ can change the face of the meta. Regardless, I'd like to hear what others think.

Freep: The idea is to bid to go 2nd so you can determine the site path to make both Arwen the tank, while burdening/enduring Nazgul with Lost in the forest can slow down you opponent and add some burdens.
