Works well with Tactics Theoden, as Snowmane can still be attached. That means he can quest for 3, hopefully ready following quest success and still be available to Sentinel block for people/chop up enemies.

I really like this card. I think it goes well with heros like Tactics Boromir, Amarthiul, and Tactics Gimli. It also goes well with a number of allies like Warden of Helm's Deep, Azain Silverbeard, Defender of Rammas, Deorwine, and ally Gimli.

Getting this on a Defender of Rammas is an amazing feeling.

It depends. I think Amarthiul will more likely go with Armored Destrier, as he will be in a deck facing multiple enemies. Azain will always attack, so the dwarrowdelf axe is the better option. The fact that it restricts two slots at once is hard. If it would be +2 hit points and +2 defense, then... The best thing is, as you implied, that it can be attached to Allies as well.

Yea, it is definitely an ally attachment.  Paying 4 for a 6 shield, 3 HP guy though seems really worth it.

5 shield, unfortunately, they didn't design it according to my wish ;)

But yeah, it's a really nice combo

yea you are right.   but still, for 4 cost that is really good.  The trouble is drawing both those things.  I really like the idea, but I haven't brought myself to run it yet.   For me, Beregond is still typically in my hero line-up in Tactics, so defense is mostly taken care of.  I do think it would be good in a split sphere deck though.  Maybe lore so you could have the drawing power to get the pieces and healing to make sure Rammas doesn't bleed out.
