The best use of this card that I can think of is in conjunction with The Brimstone (TBC), Parting Blow (PotS), and Blood for Blood (PotS). In the right circumstance it can be an amazing amount of control (that lasts for that one turn only). Nonetheless, 3 gold for a 2 STR chracter with 2 icons and a 1 time usable effect doesn't seem particularly great.
I use it to trigger A Nest of Vipers (TftH) in my Sand Snakes deck when I'm the first player.

Is there a way to trigger this effect during a mil challenge? for example to feint a mil attack and then kill House Dayne Skirmisher or defend with him and kill him before claim? 

Challenges go as such:


1. Player actions

2. Attacker announces type/declares attacking characters

3. Player actions

4. Attacker assigns stealth/Defender declares defending characters

5. Player actions

6. Resolve (claim, unopposed, renown, etc.)


You may use this character's ability in 3 or 5, even after you have declared it as an attacker/defender in 2 or 4. Of course, it is then gone before you get to 6 and so not a part of challenge resolution at all.
