Strategy

Shagrat moves to Cirith Gorgor and squatts while trying the factions. The others do the Mordor shuffle (Mount Doom, Nurniag Camp, Barad Dur).
When your Ringwraith comes, put 5 magic cards into the discard pile. Next comes Uvatha to prevent Rivers. Then Sudden Call. It`s helpful to put another deeper shadow into the deck. If so it is always used. When the deck is exhausted put some other MP cards into it. This deck only gets 25 MPs if you get them by killing opponents characters.
Let Akhorahil move safe with at least one unleashed card in your hand. It doesn`t matter if he`s tapped or wounded but he should not get killed of course.
And if anybody is still alive after the malady line, don`t forget the CvCC!!

It actually matters a great deal if the body check result against Akhorahil is 7 or 8. :)

You currently have no way to deal with auto-attacks in this deck (Sojourn doesn't work on auto-attacks).  It's something to consider.

Why doesn't it work?

The relevant discussion can be found here.  It's weird, but any cards that affect strike assignment cannot be played on auto attacks.

Absolutely true. If so try it next turn again.

Also true. You only have Some secret art of flame.
