It reminds me a little of Shroom Brewer, a midgame minion with decent stats that also heals you. Not nearly good enough to push Dragon Warrior by itself, but still a solid card. However, this is still worse than Cobalt Scalebane and Darius Crowley in a midrange/value warrior deck, so there's stiff competition in the five slot.
Ppl fail to see that CW now lack good mid range minion in 5,6,7 mana spot. In its heyday, the deck can just drop Sludge, Shieldmaiden and then Dr.Boom without much thinking . Now with this card the deck can curve out again Twightlight drake , this card, bonedrake into crowd roster into LK. Which is important to beat harder control deck like shudderwock.
Even though the card is a cheaper dragon Shieldmaiden, I feel like it will see play in completely different decks. Control Warrior will probably still prefer Shieldmaiden in Wild because they typically don't have much room for dragon synergy.
This card, on the other hand, might enable a Midrange Dragon Warrior deck that wants to play overstatted dragons and threats on curve.
Pretty cool card. I would really be happy if dragon warrior gets a few more good cards.
As much I want that since I am hardcore CW since Naxx, if this class get bonkers cards like Druids or rotated Priest cards, the deck will he very hard to beat in the hand of a good player. The boardclears, single target removal and stalling ability of the class are so good if it got decent game ending legendries or broken combo, few other decks can stop it.
