After finishing the Mirkwood cycle this hobbit became a very solid and versatile hero. Just attach him some
Fast Hitch (TDM), Song of Mocking (TDM) or Dunedain Signal (RtM) was probably what xanferatu wanted to say ;)
1) But if you use Song of Mocking on Frodo and redirect damage to someone else, you cannot cancel that damage, can you?
Why not? it doesn't break any rule, just keep in mind the once per phase sentence (and your threat level)
You play the Song of Mocking on Frodo and then redirect the damage to him. Not the other way round
Outshines poor Bilbo. Frodo's ability to essentially quest and block is very valuable in the early game - making him fulfill a similar role to Aragorn in some ways.
