Did you use Hungry Ettin, gravelsnought knight, etc? No
Did this card came 1 early late? Yes
If they launched this card, does it mean Blizz is seriously considering printing even more resurrect stuff??? PLEASE NOOOOOO
This card adds 3-6 different cards in the ressurect pool, it's way better than the other cards that add 1 or 2,it can even nullifie Eternal Servitude if you're lucky, and it comes 1 turn before Barnes and 2 turns before the priest can start resurrecting. At the time you play Hungry Ettin it is often too late already to add just 1 dude in the resurrect pool that won't help against the spellstone, the eternal servitude or the mass ressurect
And the Gravelsnout Knight it too difficult to play without taunt and severely hurts your winrate against all decks. Like that 6 mana demon that fills the board with 1/1s. They just suck as cards. Zul'drak ritualist doesn't suck that much I think.
The actual reason this card might be good is that, like Deathlord, it’s a deathrattle which means you may never actually see this it trigger making it just a 3/9 vanilla taunt. A serious consideration probably for priests in an aggro enviornment. Unfortunately for this card tho, there’s all ready so much strong defense and healing in the game now that I don’t know how you can compete playing an aggro deck so this card may just not have anything to counter.
as a deathrattle it would be a lot better but even with a battlecry this could work as a counter to big priest, quite a lot of 1 drops are 1/1 that spawn another token so the ressurect pool can be very contaminated. But is that enough to be played?
This does need an immediate boardclear to be able to play against agro or the like
it is a interessting one with the Mogu Fleshshaper cause you basically lower its cost by 4 (also playing a 4 cost ofc. So its a free play with that. Next too that it destroyes the resurrection pool for the priest.
or a way too fill the board from your opponent and have a strong quest + Unleash the Hounds turn with hunter.
Curious how this card will hold up, might be a tech card, but also some other potential. though maybe not on the power level that is introduced in the other cards.
counter for Resurrection mechanics... and that's it. 3/9 that summons 3 1/1's if we're looking at it in terms of stats 1/1's are like 3-5 stats apiece most of the time so on average you gave your opponent 12 stats against your 12 stat minion. Sure it'll trade really well considering most 1 drops only have at most 3 health but that's how we calculate things right?
