Gildor’s Counsel: Redemption Song

Hello again! Sadly that white whale of mine known as free time has reared its ugly head. Aside from a rather shoddy deck that I’m not comfortable with sharing yet, the month of March still left me feeling lacking when it comes to Na’asiyah.

So though this is a Hero of the Month Deck, it is just as much a community deck spotlight, another entry into Gildor’s Counsel. Read on to find out more!

Gildor’s Counsel: Quest, Quest, Quest – Community Deck Spotlight

There has been an awakening. Have you felt it? Thanks to the wonderful people behind Cardboard of the Rings, there has been a movement to spotlight decks from those of the community who may not have been noticed otherwise. For the sake of variety and a fun “tag” to any community decks on this site, I would like to introduce Gildor’s Counsel a series on this blog devoted to decks built by members of the community. First up on the spotlight: “Quest, Quest, Quest” featuring Eleanor!
