Quick Strike

I've never found myself using Quick Strike, despite it's awesomeness. There was a lot of controversy over this an the subject of immune to player card effects enemies, but the confusion passed. Note that it's not restricted to enemies engaged with you, so Haldir, Legolas, Brand, Bard, Dunhere, or any good ranged attacker are great candidates for this. My personal favorite target is Gimli. Muah ha ha haha!
