I call it the set's resident sleeper. Everyone is so quick to call it trash cuz it resembles Ramshield, yet it is nothing like it. For 5 mana you can play it in every aggro deck as an AoE counter, and even turn it into a finisher with Void Ripper if it survives a turn, seems very good.
So what happens when two of these are next to each other? I presume when one is attacked the other just takes the damage, but the wording does sort of make it seem like they would get stuck in an infinite loop of attempting to take the damage for each other.
Anti damaging aoe card for aggro and tempo decks + soft taunt + 11 total stats for 5 mana, it's a filler but a GOOD filler, has a niche and potential to become mainstream
11 stats for 5 mana is actually what they should have by base + a beneficial effect.. I mean grizzly is a 3/12 but is constantly played around 3/7, 3/8 I am aware grizzly have other synergies and that's why he is played but this card isn't stopped by it's stats.
edit: I guess one of the few scenarios this is really strong is to put it in between/next to a taunt minion. I kind of hope they keep printing more cards that rely on positioning.
It could be a nerf to Supercollider depending on the board set up. Generally you would need to have 4 or more minions in that case. I agree with you on more positioning cards being good for the game. I will probably try cheating this out with Oakheart.
