When you draw this, deal 1 damage to your minions.
A little better than Sea Minus Reaver.
Whenever there's a "Sea" In a card
Blizzard has a C- in humor
Boulderfist Ogre>Sea Reaver
This is what happens when a Boulderfist Ogre REALLY wants attention.
I still dont understand why doesnt this hit all minions. I mean its an epic card and it would be perfectly balanced that way. now its just a crappy card.
Well then it would basically be Flame Leaviathan. They probably didn't want to make it too similar to a legendary. Should just have more stats than Boulderfist.
Exept if you have a lot of enrage minions in your deck.
I'd rather it just have better stats for the "downside."
It feels like it should be a card with a downside that justifies more value, and can be an upside in the right deck.
See Terrorscale Stalker and Princess Huhuran. I completely agree with you, though.
I've just pulled a golden one in a TGT pack. The art is so awesome I don't manage to disenchant it. Though, as soon as I read his stats and his card text, I feel bad...
Got this in today's brawl. As far as I can see it's a worse boulderfist ogre. That's also epic. And a class card. I mean yes it has sort-of synergy with enrage and patron but you have no control over the effect, for all you know it could just as well wipe your board.
Why does this exist?
To top it off, your oponent knows that you have drawn it.
Seems like the only good this card would have done is in the now nerfed warsong commander decks...
Maybe if this was a 8/8 for the 6 it'd see play but unless something new comes up I doubt anyone will ever use this card.
Does anyone else see any good application for it currently?
I had no idea this card existed until a priest used it as a product of Mulch earlier this morning. The card art is beautiful (especially golden, gahh) but sadly I think that the only reason I'll ever see it is due to cards like Mulch or Unstable Portal as no one's going to purposely put this in their deck!
I've played half a thousand games since tgt release, watched dozens hours of streams, but i've NEVER seen this card played.Literally not a single time...
TGT gave warrior two shitty epics. Such a waste
I could swear this guy was called sea plunderer. Anyway, bad card. Yes it CAN synergyze with stuff that benefits taking damage, but you have no control over it. Beeing a 6 drop he is competing with Emperor Thaurissan, Sylvannas, Toshley, Shield Maiden, Iron Juggernaut, and a bunch of other cards that Id put in my deck way before this guy. Waisted epic slot for warrior imo. No reason to drop the Patron build anytime soon...
Nah, doesn't float my boat. I don't like the "When you draw this minion" mechanic, it alerts the opponent to what you've just drawn so they can save removal if necessary and the effect in question is generally bad. At most maybe you'll draw a card or gain some armour. I could jest at getting an enraged card or two, but that deck archetype is buried in the chasm of dead decks, and I don't think this is reviving it.
I managed to kill my entire board with this card. Well done sea reaver
I wonder how to proc with Varian Wrynn...
It only procs if the board is full and it goes into your hand.
