    3/4 for 3 is pretty good =) I like the effect as well

    This minion is pretty sweet as you can control the way of your opponent attacking order. He will have to first kill everything else in order to stop you from getting additional HP. Which opens a very good way for strategy planing. 

    Presonally I think he is really strong. Smaller yeti with ability :D sweet :D

    Who thinks Naxx release is around the corner, we only have one more card reveal left after this one.

    I'm thinking there'll be a big announcement on June 20 (that being the 8 year anniversary of the Naxx debut in World of Warcraft). Pricing and release date. (As much as I'd hope it will be released June 20, that's probably not realistic.) I would expect the release to be within 14 days of the announcement (hopefully July 1).

    Not a bad hypothesis at all, I hope you are right.

    This card is crap... deathrattle should have been destroy an enemy minion with 4 attack damage

    You're dreaming. 4 attack minions are a weakness of Priests by design. They won't get a card to destroy 4 attack minions any time soon, if ever.

    The Priest class' failing isn't 4 mana minions, it's effective board clear. Being able to destroy 4 attack minions with a single card is not what is holding priests back.

    Terrified of the Rivendare + Divine Spirit + Inner fire combos...

    Priests should be weak against the rush, but not as weak as they are today. 

    This is a step in the right direction to make what I would argue is the most interesting class in the game viable.

    Can anyone clear up why some seem to think this is a random effect? To me it's 'give', as in, control the target, but I can see it's debatable.

    It`s random,confirmed by Ben Brode.

    #75 Hereharehere (Live Patch 5506)

    cool, thank's for that.

    #71 xskarma (Live Patch 5506)

    Late to the party! Interesting card. A great minion for Priests, but also one that soft-forces them into having minions on the field, which is not always something Priests concentrate on.

    Also, yet more silencing fodder for this release. Priests allready were the 1 class you kept a silence for just in case, but it's going to be tricky to decide when to use it now.

    I forsee the meta in Naxx first trying to silence everything, before slowly stripping away silences again to add more value cards and just taking the lumps.

    Alright this is op

    #68 epicfries (Live Patch 5506)

    Really solid card for 3 mana. Random Temple Enforcer deathrattle? Count me in!

    I think its gonna be real tough to play around and bait a lot of removal (i.e turn 3 cultist, turn 4 yeti).

    Would be nice if they put some icon on the card showing it's from the Naxxramas 'expansion'. After a bunch of those expansions that might come in handy or be fun, I dunno. I think Magic did that with their cards, not sure though. Been like 15 years since I played that.

    Best 3 drop in terms of stats, even beats harvest golem if you count the +3 health.
