I rarely play him. If you lose a hero, chances are that Brok ain't gonna help you either.
One of the worst cards. At best a consolation prize for losing a hero.
worst card in the game that I've seen so far. So expensive for just a couple of stats and no abilities that help you once in game. If you are playing him using his response then it won't really change the fact that you are pretty much doomed. Can be a consolation only in multiplayer where you have more support from other players. Could actually be a good card in multiplayer if it wasn't restricted to a Dwarf hero you control but rather a Dwarf hero in general.
His ability is useless; Gloin (Core) or Vilya (SaF) can easily get him into play, however. Actually quite good in a stealth deck running two heroes (with
Resourceful (TWitW) and Timely Aid (TRG)).
Worst card in core. More expensive than gandalf,same defense and will of Faramir who only needs four resources, and the same attack points as a Silverlode archer who only costs three. Plus you only get one of him.
He is only good if got deck build on Elrond and can play cards like that for free, otherwise I wouldn't bother.

This makes me chuckle a bit (paraphrasing):

"This card is so damn bad; worst thing that ever happened"

"Why do I only get 1 of him. I want more Brok Ironfist"

Make up your mind ;)

We actually packed a few of them in against Shadow and Flame. We were using all dwarf decks. We knew heroes would die several times and he could come in to save the day. We passed on our second try and didn't even lose a hero thanks to Dori and Dwalin.
