Gives a relatively safe way to power up Core Gimli, it's a shame Gloin isn't a warrior.

Also nice on Beregond or any other sentinel because of the +2 hit points, as it is not restricted. Of course only in non-ressource intensive decks, as the three costs are normally only worthwile when you can benefit from the Response, too; as with e.g. Gimli, as RichardPlunkett said.


Another nice target is ally Boromir 

Is it because I'm in love with Amarthiúl, or this really fixed his main problem (low hit points, while keeping the restricted slots open for offensive and defensive tools)?

Can the Response effect be used to protect Beorn? It seems to be targeting the damage instead of the character

Its effect seems very similar to Dori's. So my guess is yes it would work with Beorn.
