This isn't great for standard. However if they are looking to stop the same boring meta in Wild then the will work, Taunt Quest warrior this will certainly start to see some more action.
Taunt Quest Warrior is not even played in Wild. If it were, it would be a Tier 5 deck. The Quest takes too long to complete, and the reward isn't even close to game winning right off the bat. This card isn't going to bring it back. By the time you get to turn 7 you need to start working on you are going to kill you opponent (you know, WIN the game). Raw stats alone isn't going to do it.
Not this is definitely some discard warlock/card filler type of cancer complaint, handbuff never worked and they are still pushing it, thus people complain.
I can understand it, f2p people don't want to see freeze shaman, discard warlock, handbuff whatever, because they got used to completely underpowered unplayable cards. I personally like these mechanics, because it takes more than just good cards to pilot them. And also because Blizzard can release a good synergy card at any time and improve the mechanic and it feels so good when you already play the mechanic when that happens. Thx blz for all the discard shenanigans
