Very good card
would it really prefer it to have six health, but its good regardless.
Great in Mech hunter for it provides some well-needed protection in a class that has no healing spells or armor gaining spells.
I hear him say: "Save the magic world!"
Now with this in the game, I think that Animated Shield should be a mech.
Has anyone tried this card in a deck w/o mech support, and if so, how does it fare by itself in that regard? It strikes me as a curious mix between Sludge Belcher and Sunwalker, I'm curious to try it but it feels a bit slow too on paper for it's purpose.
The token almost certainly survive a turn, so you can magnet Beryllium Nullifier on it and wreck all aggression.
That vault safe is a 0/5. Mostly useless. Unless you have buffs, this isn't that great.
You know what else seems useless when you look at it in a vacuum? 1/2 slimes with taunt.
if the 0/5 is a mech it's easy to buff with magnetic minions
You're not looking at the bigger picture. Yes, it costs 6 and the stats neither the minion nor the token are that great for a 6 cost. But at the very, unless it is silence (and almost any taunt minion can be silenced), it will take you opponent two attackers, two spells, or a mix of both to get through this minion. If your opponent is limited at both in late game, then this could be a hard minion to deal with. Plus, just like someone else pointed, this is a relative minion type (it is a mech so it can be magnetized).
Sludge Belcher 2.0, 1 more mana but with Mech synergy
Not bad at all
