Ah, hello fellow heartstonians (not sure if this is correct, but what the hell) its that time again. Its crafting time!
Ive been wondering if I should craft Wickerflame Burnbristle. I heard that he was and will be a good card. The question is should I spend my dust on him, or on another legendary? Thanks, and please reply.
Well in order to get an appropriate answer we would need you to share what your goals are with this legendary you want to craft. What do you like or want to play? Wickerflame is a great card, but you could also just play Stonehill Defender in paladin.
He is a really solid card but there are many ways to build paly and he is easy to replace (stonehill, tar creeper). the lifesteal shell is solid vs aggro and midrange but there are better builds vs conrol and it is expensive. the meta is new so i would recomment waiting
If you are going to use him in a divine shield deck then yes. If you want to run corpsetaker in yourdecks then yes. In control he is still great anti aggro, but tar creeper can still be good if you don't run corpsetaker or Bolvar. I have gone once to legend with control paladin with tar creeper because I found it better against token druid and murloc paladins.
I am playing Control Paladin without Wickerflame and I get him from Stonehill Defender a lot. But it's still better to have him in deck. He has really good synergy with Corpsetaker and then you really need him in deck. If you play control or even midrange I would suggest you to craft him.
If you play a lot of Paladin, yes. He fits in several styles of Paladin, and it's even safer if you play wild.
But if you like to play a lot of different classes, then I'd wait. He's not really needed in Exodia Paladin (a deck that will lose its luster in a week and be replaced by Control) and he's easily replaceable in every archetype of Paladin except Handbuff, which also isn't very good in the first place.
You don't need him in Control Paladin for Corpse Taker, there are enough Taunt and Divine Shield minions to guarantee those two traits so all you have to do is replace him for a Life Steal minion - I run 2 Blood Worm regardless because of The Curator and it's been more than enough.
