This card is a very useful tool against any Orcs. Although it has a 2 Twilight cost, the special ability, damage bonus, and strength bonus more than make up for it; the additional damage bonus makes him take any vitality 3 minion he defeats out of the road for a safer double move. However, a downside to this card is it can only be played on Gimli.
