Ghostly Rusher actually. Anyway. Completely disappointed by the paladin cards. No dragon synergy, just a random card about dragons with no dragons in the class. On the other hand hunters get 2 dragons but don't have dragon synergy (???). Wasted an epic on a secret, no replacement for Ragnaros and Forbidden healing. I will try some new decks with paladin, but there's nothing that can be saved I guess.
I dont get the hate. Its basically Spider Tank + Darkbomb in one card, which is pretty good. Sometimes worse, because it cant go face, sometimes better because if you kill a Mana Tide Totem, it keeps the bubble. Its also much better with buffs like BoK.
Because spider Tank is a Vanilla neutral minion,and Darkbomb is a mediocre Spell (other classes besides Warlock get some major upsides with a 2 mana deal 3 spell). Yes sometimes it can keep the bubble but thats maybe in less than one percent the case. The downside of not going face or bypassing taunts is a way bigger downside.
Also every card combined with a decent buffspell is way better.
Oh man, this card is pretty good. Maybe the underrated card of the set?
While it's true that rush isn't as good as charge and the cost is nothing out of the ordinary for a 5 mana 3/4 + deal 3 damage, the catch is that it is a minion on the whole package. A deck with Keleseth, for example, gets an Yeti instead of a Spider Tank, not to mention the powerful trade and board presence you can do with a 7/8 with Divine Shield and trade it into a minion. I don't think it will see a lot of play, since the meta won't really be adequate for a buffadin/midrange Paladin, but it will see some experimentation as a one of, maybe a two of on buffadin.
