I like him, but oh so expensive...
Use Ever Vigilant (Core) to have him attack multiple times with his attack of 8.
Fantastic blocker. Well worth the two turns of resources. Great with
Self Preservation (Core), Zigil Miner (KD)

and Timely Aid (TRG).
need a resource production deck in order to use this guy, once he is on the table though it surely makes his presence noteworthy
For excellent results, use with Vilya (SaF) and a rapidly-cycling deck.
I've never played him directly from the hand.

Honestly, he's probably too expensive to ever count on being able to pay 6 precious Tactics resources to play him traditionally. I mean, we have all had those games were we are just FLOODED with resources with nothing to spend them on but that's usually more of a sign of your deck not producing the playable cards you need than just not needing the resources being produced. 

 

But the game has so many ways to sneak allies like this into play now that he has gotten SO much better as times has gone on. Elf-Stoneing Beorn in can be a game-winning play against a combat-heavy or "Big Bad" quest. He's a perfect target for Vilya. And that's not even talking about the fact that he is one of the only cards in the game that can (in certain circumstances) be a better Sneak Attack than Core Gandalf.

Does he work with Sneak Attack?

 

EDIT: Nvm, he does. Simultaneous effects are solved in the order of the first player's choosing, as per the FAQ.

 

Next time I'll do a simple Google search before I post crap :)

That's okay--we have ALL done that at on time or another. :)

 

And he is a GREAT Sneak Attack...
