Uruk Rear Guard is an exceptionally doughy uruk, and was a particularly interesting release because it was a common, which broke the trend of Fellowship Block (Where only rare uruks had more than 9 strength). Uruk Rear Guard is very expensive, particularly when considering his roaming cost, but he is powerful and difficult to destroy, making him an excellent choice to prevent double-moves. His ability is useful for assisting smaller uruks, and although it has only a marginal effect, he can perform it up to 3 times, and is usually safe to do so because of his high strength. Deep of Helm works particularly well with this expensive uruk, being a Battleground and making him (Or another uruk) cheaper. In Movie Block, the release of Suffered Much Loss allows the player to make every site a Battleground, which helps this uruk a lot.
