This card is incredibly good in midrange pally, especially if you can combine it with Muster, but most important is the meta need to slow down for midrange pally to survive til turn 6 otherwise this card will not stand a chance.
Hey guys, quick question? Does Eadric have taunt? No? Does Eadric buff your hero power? No? HUH... SO THIS ISN'T A STRICTLY WORSE EADRIC?! You guys are like the twitch chat of the world.
Not to mention this is 1 mana cheaper and it makes enemy taunts much easier to kill.
It also combos with Finja very well. You have finja on board. Enemy puts Ancient of War. You use this card, kill the taunt with finja, get your warleader, finja survives and you get a bluegill to go face!
This card is very disappointing. The art is good, but this is a card that will very rarely see full benefit and will often be shooting yourself in the foot if you play it. This should be an epic if it exists at all. Would like a legendary for paladin that is almost always beneficial.
Guys, this card is great news for Paladins! Not because of the card (which I think is too situational to work) but because everytime Paladin gets a mediocre legendary, we get amazing epics and other cards. Case in point:
This is another lackluster legendary minion. If you play paladin, you know there are no minions on your board on turn 6, that means you can't use this minion for buffing. Well ... you think maybe aggro deck has room for this card but 6 cost is too heavy. Then how good for debuff ?? No paladin can't deal 3 dmg from hand. Only Truesilver deal damage, but it cost too much for trade 1 minion. Paladin seriously needs 2 cost 3 dmg spell that every class has (that's joke). Another example how bad dev for creating paladin card. Boring not useful combo shit crap card. Totally disappointed.
Unless we see some cheap token generator for paladin this card is too situational. Needless to say its disgustingly bad against shamans and other paladins aswell not to mention its not good against pirate warrior nor mage. I think its just too situational and if meta wont consist of 50% jades then i dont think this card will see much play.
Maybe in a world of hearthstone where efficient single target removals arent a thing this card might have actually been good as it has what eadric did not TAUNT.
Also i tried to make some zoo type paladin in MSG but failed as paladin has no good finisher to buff your existing board. This might solve the problem.
It's really good tool for control and aggro. Against zoo, not too good you are going to trade most of your board with 3/3 minions and yes your small minions get to be more usefull but most of zoo minions are already small so no big deal for zoo.
