A solid little card. The Erebor Hammersmith has strong stats for the cost, and this is close. The ability can potentially be life-saving, but until you need it this hangs out and does a little of everything useful. The Dunedain trait in an ally adds very little (access to Tale of Tinúviel, Athelas and Descendants of Kings) but the majority of the good Deundain stuff only applies to heroes. Still, as low cost allies go, there's nothing to complain about with this guy.
