They probably cost 4, don't they? I think the card is alright versus other slow decks - it enables dragon synergies - though the deathrattle effect seems slow to me.
As I said in another thread, it appears that the Dalaran's protectors are getting cards, which combine 2 resources in themselves (not just in form of twinspells). So it's nice to see more examples following this pattern.
Seems pretty decent. I mean I can't imagine it'll see play unless Dragon Paladin is a thing but seems like a good supporting card in that context. Also seems like it should be strong in Arena, you're taking a slight hit on the stats but assuming the dragons are 4/4 for 4 then that's some pretty punchy resource-generation in a mode where that's really powerful. Particularly in a class like Paladin.
turn 3 play this, turn 4 a true silver or something, turn 5 the hand buff guy, turn 6 4 mana7/7's + a filler 2 cost card or hero power or maybe a 6/5 fairy dragon, turn 7 another 4 mana 7/7 with a 6/5 bronze dragon. to do all the process again.
They are finally trying to make dragon paladin a thing. In blackrock mountain we got a paladin dragon called Dragon Consort and even though it had a strong effect, paladin did not get any dragon support. Hopefully this time the devs gives dragon paladin the proper support for it to be a competitive deck.
1: play this 2: kill it of next turn 3: play twilight drake 4: ?? 5: Profit
On a more serious note, "guaranteed" curve is very nice but the dragon synergie for paladin would have to be introduced a lot more for the archetype as a whole to be viable. Dragonspeaker is not enough for that. In a normal midrange pally: Maybe
Cathedral Gargoyle can now be a powerful turn 2 play for paladins if they get enough dragon support. Dude if paladin gets more dragon support cards in this expansion then dragon paladin may actually become a thing. Can't wait to see what the other paladin cards have got to offer.
