After you engage an enemy means optionally engage or also during engagement checks?

Both. Even when you use a card with an engagement effect.

When you engage an enemy, it is the same as "an enemy engaging you".  The same goes the other way, if the enemy has an effect that has them engage you, it is considered the same as if you engaged them.  Just remember that it is once per phase, so optionally engaging and having an enemy engage you due to threat is within the same phase.   However, there are plenty of effects (both player and encounter deck) that will have enemies engage you outside of that phase.

A few of those current cards are; Knight of Minas Tirith, Son of Arnor, The Hammer-Stroke and Westfold outrider. If you're using Sneak attack, the allies could be used outside of their normal window to engage enemies as well. If played in the right order, I can see you gaining from Mablung three times in a turn.

Well the outriders are an "Any Phase" action, so you can really use them at any phase where u don't normally engage something.  And the Knight of Minas Tirith is a nice way of pulling an enemy over to you for a cost of 2.

should be good way to have resource acceleration in tactics sphere.
Then if wanna put little bit of lore or spirit with cards like ithilien archer and a light in the dark could also make it repeteable
