Prior to "The Black Riders" this card saw very little use, but now that Hobbit decks can easily get their threat below the secrecy threshold we might see this card see a lot more play. It would certainly be very thematic for a hobbit deck as the Dunedain were tasked with protecting the hobbits (and secretly!)

Even hobbit decks have a hard time staying under 20 (though it is certainly possible from threat control). And even if they are, this is still a cost 2 ally. The Sentinel and ranged aspects of the card are nice, but it still seems pretty marginal. Is that just me being a new player and not seeing the possibilities?

No, you're right. I've used decks that stay in secrecy the whole game pretty easily- e.g. a spirit Merry deck that often gets into single-digit threat- and never felt this card was worth using. Some cards are just not very good, and this is one of them.
