Imagine you get to play in one turn Serrated Shield + Runed Shield, but instead of 10 Armor, you get only 5 armor and draw 5 cards. And it only costs 2 mana less, one card less, and there is no uncertainty. What 4 mana gets you with Ultimate Infestation just shows how underwhelming this card is.
Costs too much for way too much variance. In some cases, it's a Shieldmaiden, in others an Arcanite Reaper + Iron Hide or Holy Fire. You don't even get a discount over just playing other cards, but have to cope with the RNG factor of undesirable effects for particular situations. At that cost it also only has a place in control warrior and I'm not sure if it isn't too RNG for that.
People comparing to Iron Hide... first you would never run even 1 and obviosly can’t run 3. Is more like a Bring it on! Which sees play. Shieldmaiden was an auto include. Shield block + shield slam combo sees a lot of play in control. Arcanite Reaper and armor? I’m in.
This card is good. 3 out of 4 opportunities are good, cause u heal and gain tempo on board, cause either u remove or build board. Thats the kind of card control warrior was missing since rotation of Bash and Shieldmaiden. Great ! Pls some more of these
