Battlecry: Equip a 3/8 Blood Fury.
"TRIFLING GNOME! YOUR ARROGANCE WILL BE YOUR UNDOING!!!!"
R.I.P. on any other control class. Small indie company.
This card will single-handedly prevent any other classes from having dominant control decks as long as it exists in this state.
I think they should at least nerf the hero power to summon a 5/5 or even 4/4. Otherwise I think this means too much value over time...
bad idea... the old version was never played because 15 health is trash. This is just bringing him to the new power level. Maybe now Warlocks will play him in some decks.
Some? Now every warlock uses this card cause is so damn overpowered.
Can we play still the minion version in Wild?
but.. why would u want to do that >.<
Bec a 3/15 body is still a good minion.
No you can't. The Hero Card is replacing the minion. Old Jaraxxus is no more.
its not... the 3/15 version is the worst case scenario. Every other big demon is better. The puny 3 attack...
So am..I love jaraxxuss and I am too excited for this however..I think they will nerf him like very soon.. why ?well this is a meta defining + breaker for standard... for standard not wild... This guy with enovy and tickatus with some pile of control cards will beat anything in standard... like for real.. infinite value hero power... and u have envoy primes and tickatus combo breaker combine those with some heavy control cards warlock becomes unstoppable in standard so I think they will revert him to 15 hp but keep the armor..
I have to say the jaraxxus change is pretty balanced. No demon & minion tag means no more discount from various sources, but no health limit makes it less risky. At the same time u can't burst heal so it evens out.
burst heal wuuut ? I don't know what you're talking about.. discounts and the stuff your talking about never really actually made him scary or playable.. like even if that happened still jaraxxus was bad removing the minion and demon tag if you're reffering to void caller pulling it out still i am a wild player and that never sees play really... so I dont think it evens it out if we removed stuff that didn't see play ... as i mentioned before this new change probably makes me happy as i am a warlock main however at the same time it seems too op in standard and a nerf will likely happen cuz infinite value and no downsides other than playing a 9 mana card do nothing
He would be unplayable again. Maybe change the hero power to 3 mana or to a 5/5. Why would you waste a full turn for it. Remember a 9 mana card has to be impactfull otherwise you give the advantage to your opponent. Jaraxxus will just dominate control match ups and thats fine. Aggro decks doing well vs Warlock and therefore the control warlock would have plenty of counters.
Ok so basically now if you want to play any kind of reactive deck in standard you have to either play warlock or lose to it....got it...good thing I play wild, I was considering coming back to standard if the core set was good enough to make fun decks but...I'll wait for next year so some stuff changes and shitheadtus rotates and maybe they will have realized that no value focused standard deck can even remotely keep up with this beast too so he may get rotated as well
So, can I still kill myself using Sacrificial Pact?
Well, they did mention alot that Jaraxxus was going to be changed, but wow that's a huge buff. Definitely viable now no questions asked, it's good because I fucking love this card too as much as the next person. Handlock back maybe?
Is the hero power the same though?
