Blizzard should make a special stream lessons or youtube videos in which they explain the the only way hs should be played is with supa dupa 1000 IQ control/combo homebrewed decks and 30 minutes long match is a minimum time period that proves you're not braindead blah blah something etc.
Doesn't sound that bad-- Especially with Malfurion, or just having a giant wall on Turn4 that your enemy has to deal with sounds pretty good. This wouldn't be played in aggro so missing out on 3 damage or trade doesn't sound all that bad
4 mana 3/6 are really good stats and the taunt is really nice. But why that drawback? 4 mana 3/6 taunt seems fair enough for a class card? At least it has taunt so even with the highly unnecessary drawback its still decent in my opinion because it still protects your face. Yeah its alright.
But seriously the drawback makes no sense whatsoever.
Edit: I take my comment back, compared to senjin this is bad!
It's a Sen'jin Shieldmasta with one more health but a downside... for a class card... where the general power level is so much higher than it used to be. Card is not good. You'd run the 3/5 taunt 5/2 stealth we got a couple expansions back (that I've forgotten the name of) before this. Could easily have been a 4/6 and still probably wouldn't be played.
I guarantee this doesn't see play in any Tier 3+ deck. Knew Druid was going to get shafted after Jade was so good for so long but, at least we have the Spellstone...
