But no living man am I! You look upon a woman. Éowyn I am, Éomund’s daughter. You stand between me and my lord and kin. Begone, if you be not deathless! For living or dark undead, I will smite you, if you touch him.

This is a mono-spirit secrecy version of this deck:

The deck is a questing powerhouse and, beginning in secrecy, is perfectly happy to leave enemies in the staging area and quest over top of them. When it does engage it relies on Gamling, Háma, chump blocks by the fast-moving Rohan, and an occasional Out of Sight to keep the enemies at bay. It is severely lacking in attack power... until the shield-maiden takes up her adoptive father's sword and gets a-smiting.

Arwen Undómiel fuels the Rohan engine, accelerating resources and, through Elven-light, gathering the pieces of the combo. Emery helps get those Elven-lights tossed quickly. And of course Éowyn herself can keep those lights cycling.

Arwen pays for everything when possible, and every Resourceful goes on Éowyn. Miruvors can also be used to transfer resources on to the shield-maiden, and it should not be overlooked that the willpower boost it provides last for the entire round, increasing both the quest and the attack. (Most boosts last for one phase, so you have to pick either or.)

All of this resource-shifting sets up a late-game Lay of Nimrodel. Thanks to Herugrim, it can be used to drop the hammer on a particularly nasty quest stage or to splatter a particularly nasty enemy. If you don't need a single huge killshot, you can also use Stand and Fight to pull any beefy ally out of any player's discard pile. (Anyone playing across the table from you can easily pitch an ally they can't afford to Éowyn's ability.)

Mulligan any hand that doesn't include an Elven-light. Thanks to all those Resourcefuls, Leaf Brooches, and Arwen herself, this deck can generate a ton of resources. With Arwen and Éowyn's built-in discard, that translates up to three cards drawn every round, which will get you to your combo pieces in a hurry.

When Strider comes out, remove the two copies of the Horse-Breeder and the one copy of Snowmane to put in three copies. (Possibly pull out one Unexpected Courage to add one more Herugrim while you're at it.) Strider + Herugrim on Éowyn means she's questing for 6 and attacking for 7 every round, with the option to discard a card to increase either of those values by one. The combo only takes four resources to set up. Which is kind of good.
