20/20 Hindsight:  Yeah, I probably wouldn’t have included Denethor in this way.  I would probably put Boromir with Merry & Pippin and give them 4 cards to bring out their personalities, and made it more of a FOTR deck.  Then, Gandalf would be with Citadel Guards, Eowyn the minor to Theoden the major, and then I would have added in an entirely other deck in the Armies expansion, maybe Galadriel or Haldir or something.

I originally wanted to put Boromir with Faramir but they don’t actually share screen time outside of the extended version, but mainly, Faramir with archers gave LOTRED the rare all-ranged deck, which we kind of needed, so we needed to figure out another direction for Boromir.

I’m really just nitpicking because this is a fun deck.  This is a way to get a character like Denethor in the game because it’s not like anyone would want to play Denethor & 2 Cronies deck or anything.  He’s probably more interesting than a couple of faceless minors and it’s not like he’s out of place as Boromir’s minor, plus he has a spy type of role to play.
