Seems really good. I still don’t know whether tempo/rush Warrior decks will be a thing because they tend to lack a win condition but the synergy with both The Boomship and Dr Boom means this card has value outside of purely rush-centric decks.
Seems pretty strong. I know this will be a good arena card.
As for constructed - normally warriors would prefer the 1/3 armour gaining mech, but this is still very powerful. Your Darius Crowley won't be damaged and he will get a free kill and a free buff. I think this might be the card, which will define tempo warrior rush decks in general.
In the past, when you played a rush minion, it traded off with the opponent's one. It was a 1:1 trade off, which didn't sound that impressive. The spirit will allow your rush minions to make more trades and you won't fall behind on the board.
This is a nice inclusion in those tempo decks, I hope I am right on this part. It will be nice to see more variety from this class.
This could actually be insanely strong. I predict this pushing Warrior towards the top of the meta given the large amount of rush minions they can summon. It will create big swing turns and leave opponents with a dilemma - kill the spirit or kill the mechs/Crowley? Either way it puts the Warrior immediately on top and on the offensive.
You can have an immediate effect when comboing it with any rush minion + your opponent has to burn a 3dmg+ AoE to not get completly crushed next turn. Extremly good for Rush+Overkill minions, since they can potentially trigger the Overkill and afterwards stay as a "healthy" Threat. You'll need those 5 dmg to kill akali etc.. You gotta build arround it for sure, but i dont think that's a problem anymore.
Please forget all the things about Dr. Boom, Mad Genius or The Boomship: If the wording is correct, it only affects minions that have Rush, not minions that gained Rush by any effect that gave them Rush.
Only minions with Rush (not minions that gained rush) are affected!
This needs just 1 more good cheap rush minion other than Rabid Worgen to be good, and based on the fact that we’ve seen no Warrior Rush minions so far other than Akali seems to suggest that one of the remaining Warrior cards is a Rush minion.
