Reno the Relicologist
Battlecry: If your deck has no duplicates, deal 10 damage randomly split among all enemy minions.
All his life, Reno Jackson was only a gatling wand away from becoming the greatest and most terrifying mage who ever existed.
I use to not like this card at all until it saved my @ss playing so many times in standard play. Plus he fits in quite nicely with other mythic rares that require no duplicates.
I am Heavy Weapons Reno,
And this...is my weapon.
When the card came out and i got it as my golden pre purchase reward I was pretty mad, but now its just epic (nice visual play effect, nice art, board challenging)!
When everyone was trashing on this card, I held my faith and believed that this card is going to be a very powerful addition to reno mage in wild.
I was right!
This card is amazing, I turned so many games around with this card. 10 damage is enough to clear the board most of the times. You can clear the board against zoo, right after the emerald spellstone, or if the opponent only has one big minion, you can easily kill it too.
So ruin your deck (usually) and clear board 1 time? Still not worth it.
I said it was a powerful addition to my reno mage in wild. It doesn't ruin my deck at all, my deck already doesn't have any duplicates
This is only a bad card if you view this in a Standard lens. In Wild, though, it's a reliable clear in the early stages of a match to stall long enough to get your bigger threats out.
were gonna be shit
Fixed to match Reno-card tier
Easily the strongest one out of the class highlander cards. One sided board clear with a decent body is obscenely powerful in a midrange deck as you can use whatever trades necessary to get the board to 10 health and send the rest upstairs. Can singlehandedly turn a losing game into a winning one.
People are talking about the art, but I'm complaining about the voice line. "Weeeeee're gonna have fun"?!? That's the best Blizzard could come up with? It didn't even sound like the original Reno's VA but his voice may have changed since LoE. So many better lines could have been used.
worst reno art ever
i think you can compare it the best with Dyn-o-matic. It cant hit your own minions, has better statline and more dmg for this distriction... i think its fine for Highlander decks.
So basically get to play Timepiece of Horror for 6 mana and only target minions (not great for smorc'ing but can delete the enemy's board potentially) +4/6 body? This isn't as strong as many other Legendaries in Standard right now but i'd at least rate it Average. Lord Godfrey is better in general but targets your own board as well so eh, maybe not as many drawbacks as we'd think.
Where is the voting poll so I vote to dust it already? (Even though I usually never dust anything)
too bad it's not worth dusting considering the fact that it's in a tier 1 deck before nerfs
Still no voting option on this card anyways... did all hearthpwn.com team move out?
Not a fan of the art downgrade. Where's his hat?
I'll hold my judgement on the effect until we see the whole set, but I already hate the artwork.
The hat is behind his head, it flew off in the picture.
