Battlecry: Give a friendly Mech +1/+1.
It takes a lot to wind him up.
Emperor Thaurissan is 6 mana, not 5.
Oh yeah; that was a typo.
Its a nice but boring card. Stat to Cost wise, its fine. 5m for a 5/5 isn't a bad deal. The fact it has mech has a tag-line means people can go more full on gimmick with mechs. The battlecry is nice, practically a Shattered Sun Cleric, for a common and if it was anything stronger it would have been more akin to a rare.
This card is not bad...but boy is it boring.
amen to that! Muck Fechs!
Could work in a higher curve mech deck. But I find a hard time justifying this over Loaetheb.
5/4 Piloted Shredder to kill your opponent's Loatheb. Found your justification.
Not too great when you consider that most mech decks are played relatively fast. At the most this might be a one of since loatheb is usually in the 5 slot if they have one.
So we got bad card for pirates and solid for mechs. Gj Blizzards.
Really liked the card! The artwrok is amazing!But what I really liked is the opportunity to make more midrange mech decks :)
That might actually bring more diversity in mech decks. Its a slow but value mech. You hit something with it and you effectively have a 5 mana 6/6. The bigger thing is, mechs are usually good on their own so you don't have to play this good mech to make up for other bad mechs (unlike the way dragon decks work), so a strong mech is actually a very decent boost to mech decks.
Furthermore, its a 5 mana mech. In mech decks the 5 mana slot is usually not very contested. You might see just an occasional Sludge Belcher because he's just very good, but other than that, this mech comes into a very empty slot in those deck archetypes.
In fact, with a new bigger mech that boasts tempo in a great way, maybe we can see some more viable variations of Mech Rogue? With this and the Iron Sensei looks like she'll be able to buff her mechs really nicely. Maybe we can have Mech Warrior as well? I think the reason we've not seen these classes make good mech decks is because mech decks have been very fast so far, this is a slower but still very good mech so... who knows?
If it would be 1 or 3 it could of been more flexible.Still, it is a solid card.
This could make mech druid viable. They tend to run out og steam too quickly, since all the decent mech synergy is so cheap.
Or it could give rise to a completely new archetype. It's pointless to judge this card by fitting it in to current mech decks since the meta will chance.
Enough mechs already!!!
I like it, more mech is good. 5 slot is so filled though in constructed..
It's fine. Not amazing, not terrible. For mech decks there is obvious synergy, especially if played after an Iron Sensei (helps to buff the Sensei, then the Sensei buffs the Clockwork Knight).
it might work for mech shamans, but i dunno
Seems ok, 5 drop at the moment is pretty important, idk if this will be good enough.
I'm still waiting for an anti-mech card... not a one that buffs them. This one looks solid in Mech decks.
I really wish they added a "trogg devourer" which was like a 2 4 for 3 with Battlecry: destroy a mech with 3 or less attack and gain a spare part. I don't care if it's too good. So sick of going against idiots playing mech with no punishment
