Ithilien Pit

I find this to be perhaps the less useful of all the traps cards. Sure being able to attack the enemy with any character no matter where it is, even in the staging area, can be quite the great boon, but it does nothing to help you againts that enemy until the player's attacks part of the combat phase. I almost always would prefer playing a Ranger Spikes, Entangling Nets, Ambush or Outmatched. That said in a dedicated Damrod trap deck it's a nice 0-cost drop if you have nothing else to play, so you could go ahead and include it.

It does combo super well with Ranger Spikes though in a Legolas Trap deck so you can kill an enemy for progress on a slower solo round where no new enemy appears. — Christian_Medic 973
@Alonewolf87 Do you mean Lore Damrod? — Truck 1389

It's great for a secrecy deck. Think about it - normally enemies may pile up in the staging area if you are in secrecy. With this trap, you can take care of them in the combat phase, without having to engage them.

Seems useful for taking out a high threat enemy, but you will be faced with some pressure to both quest and fight at the same time. Ala, can you talk and dance, scenario. — LaRoix 1
All you need is some action advantage (for example, Glorfindel with Light of Valinor). — warlock000 3184
