If you were attentive, you could have noticed that the deck is based on "The Lord of the Rings". Thranduil wasn't a part of the story.

You made me think, so thank you for that. It has been a long time since I've read the series. I seemed to remember a few things though, and a little bit of research helped too.
While Thranduil was met, first, in the Hobbit he was indeed in the story of The Lord of the Rings.

War of the Ring
During the War of the Ring, he sent his son Legolas to Rivendell, along with other Elves, to report Gollum's escape from Mirkwood.[3] The gradually-established friendship between the dwarf Gimli and Legolas later helped to reconcile Thranduil's people with the Dwarves.
When the forces from Dol Guldur later attacked Mirkwood, Thranduil repulsed an attack and had the victory. His actions were in concert with the Dwarves and the Men of Dale against the Easterlings who attacked from the East. He came into an agreement with Celeborn that the southern part of Mirkwood would be counted as East Lórien. Thranduil took the northern region as far as the mountains; the wide forest between Mirkwood and East Lórien was given to the Beornings. By this time also, Thranduil renamed Mirkwood Eryn Lasgalen, the Wood of Greenleaves.[8]The name Thranduil first appears in The Lord of the Rings, in which his title was given as the King of the Elves of Northern Mirkwood.[3] Elsewhere in Tolkien's writings he was also referred to as King of the Woodland Realm, a title he inherited from his father."

it's from the lotr wiki page. He didn't have a huge part in the stories of course, but he was indeed there both in spirit and in force.

I really don't think it's enough to include him into the deck. Besides there are many interesting characters that are mentioned more than a couple of times and truly deserve attention.

well the most important part, I think, is that it is YOUR deck. =0) you can put (or not) whom you feel is most appropriate. (to be honest I kind of forgot about him until the movie...then I *heart* him)

thanks for being so very nice about pointing that out. You weren't snarky at all. I appreciate it. Your art is good though.
