Vilya is what really sets him apart, but don't discount his ability to amplify healing. He turns Warden of Healing into an absolute powerhouse. With a bit of shadow card control and a Daughter of the Nimrodel in play, he can tank hits from Durin's Bane almost indefinitely (at least until the Balrog gets its sword).
Put A Burning Brand (CatC), Vilya (SaF), Protector of Lorien (Core), Unexpected Courage (Core), and Resourceful (TWitW) on him and watch him go. Elrond fears nothing.

I don't have this AP yet, but… quantity should be 1, shouldn't it?

Yes, there's just one Elrond.

Put A Burning Brand (CatC), Vilya (SaF), Protector of Lorien (Core), Unexpected Courage (Core), and Resourceful (TWitW) on him and watch him go. Elrond fears nothing.

 

Wow, that is quite a stable of cards.  I don't disagree this would make him awesome, but any hero can be made awesome with a pile of select expensive cards like that.  You certainly can't judge a hero apart from his available card pool, but that list is a little extreme to consider as a viable setup for every game.

Seems he might still fear being wet

Elrond is the perfect candidate for my Silvan-Deck. Duo him with tactics Legolas and Song of Mocking. Elrond defends, Legolas takes damage, which is regenerated by Silvan Tracker. Elrond is also able to pay for Lorien Guide.

Just to clarify: Is it possible to buy a, lets say, tactics ally with a mono-lore deck or do I have to control atleast 1 "real" tactics hero to pay with Elrond?

Thanks in advance!

Yep, you can buy a tactics ally with Elrond.

He's almost one of the most powerful heroes in the game, with Dain and Gandalf.
