I believe that this card is sorely underappreciated. I would even say that I prefer it over Feint. Feint provides a single defense for one resource. While this is a great trade, a well-rounded deck must have another way of defending enemies. 3 Feint will not support a player's defense for an entire game. Thus, most decks choose to run a defender. In any deck which uses a good defender, such as Beregond or Dáin Ironfoot,Outmatched is far superior, as it can provide unlimited defenses. This allows you to ignore the attached enemy, saving the need for attackers. Let's say you are playing solo and are engaged with an enemy. Thus, you do not commit your defender to the quest. Typically, you would have to leave another character ready to defend, in case another enemy is revealed that turn. Because you have bought Outmatched, you don't need an additional defender. However, the same is true of Feint. Where Outmatched really shines is in the early game, before you have enough to kill enemies. You can safely leave both enemies engaged with you while only needing one defender. Admittedly, in contrast to Feint, you still have to deal with shadow effects. However, Feint only works for a single turn. Outmatched allow you to ignore the need to attack enemies is far superior. Both cards have their place. Feint can handle enemies who cannot have attachments. Simply put, Outmatched is a far more fun card, which can outperform a Core set staple. Not to mention the fact that it fits in with Damrod and the Dunedain. Overall, this card breathes new life into defense. Give it a try!
