Only 1 health off of Ancient of War for costing 1 less is huge. Although it not being able to attack is rather annoying. Though I still think that Bonemare will be popular and this doesn't do a very good job at contesting the board at all and likely dies to a Bonemared minion. Has potential though.
Hungry Ettin is crying, this is soo much better, 5/9 is much better than a 4/10 imo, besides in control i dont care if this doesnt attack i just care about my health. Warrior however has not gotton enough good cards and propably wont see to much play.
So Warrior got their own version of Ironbark Golem. Cracks aside, this thing actually has good potential in Control Warrior for its overstated body and ability to consistently attack the opponent in most cases. I mean, if you don't have 5 armor or more while playing Control Warrior, you're doing it wrong. And a 5/9 taunt body for 6 will sure irritate a wide range of opponents trying to deal with it.
This is a very strong card and will see play in control warrior, since it's not hard at all getting only 5 armor, and even if you don't have 5 armor the 5 attack and 9 body is amazing with taunt, HOWEVER, control warrior might just be garbage this expansion, I do expect control warrior to be very strong in the future though
Fantastic card. My guess is that it'll wind up in a more midrangey deck than control/quest.
It seems slightly too expensive for Quest as it slow-rolls which is risky as the whole point of quest warrior is to finish the quest. Primordial Drake and Curator are already expensive and the deck doesn't have room for many other expensive cards.
I bet it'll see play as a 1-of in Control, as a "use your removal on me"-type card. Control wants a ton of armor and removal and it probably can't manage to fit in two more big cards that don't provide either.
