Forged in the Barrens Cards List & Guide
My Boy Gruul is staying in my collection even when I'm dry on dust
Dunno why I thought it was part of WOTOG set.
Colour pallete. A majority cards from WOTOG had purple/violet colouring as shared theme for the set.
Wait. Did this card always have summon and attack voice lines? I opened and tried it in some decks but I can't remember any voice line.
dane's been using it in big rogue with Silver Vanguard and Kobold Illusionist. Nice to see a legitimate use for Gruul, even if it's just for the meme.
Open his golden version just 5 minutes ago,must i be happy? or be disappointed?
I just opened golden too. You must be very disappointed. This card will NEVER see play.
You got a free choice of legendaries, so I'd say be happy :)
You got 1600 dust!! Lucky you :D
Ahh Good old Gruul. My first legendary, I thought he was so cool back in the GvG days and I was happy to blame him. Oh to be young
This was my first legendary. Kinda works with the Summoning Portal
As does every minion lol

Really like the card, to bad he will just be ignored and then you die :/
I will keep him never know when you gonna need a bad card and beside i also want to finish the collection
Should i disenchant this ?
Great to get from Confessor Paletress. Especially against zoo because they lack hard removal.
Seriously why people calling him bad ? he is a 8/8 by end of your turn , so a 8/8 for 8 mana ... and it gets bigger at the end of each turn ! yes many call him bad because they have played this guy right when they reach 8 mana ... he should be played when your opponent has wasted all their "transform" or "destroy" spells and minions well maybe if not , most of those cards with those effects , playing this when your opponent has very less cards in his/her cards can be a win (game-changer) also seen people comparing him with class legendaries is a way worse way to say "this card is bad" afterall "Class legendaries > non-class legendaries" is the logic in any form
Now that dr.boom is removed from standard , and all other GvG Overpowered legendaries (compared to their cost) gruul is decent pick for standard , also he is awesome and fun in most of brawls ...
He is bad because any high cost minion has to impact the board the turn it is played, or it has to have a REALLY good effect (like Ysera, which is also not being played right now).
Imagine an enemy zoo Warlock with a board full of minions. Would you rather: Play Tirion who has taunt, play Baron who clears the board, play Ragnaros who can clear a big minion or play Gruul who does... Nothing?
