Its the budget replacement for legendaries new players needed. It has very clear weaknesses and I wont use it at all, but i know a lot of people will be happy to put this on their deck while they build their collection.
It's not Tirion, or Ragnaros, thats true, and compared to them, this card deserves to die in a fire. BUT it has a white gem, meaning it costs 40 dust instead of 1600, so for those on a budget, this card will be great!
7/7 for 8 would be bad value(see War Golem), but dat Divine Shield makes things much more interesting. Like, he kills Tirion and survives. BGH is an obvious weakness, but it's going to make for a good enough budget replacement of some Legendaries.
Probably not a top pick in Arena, but it's going to be just a bit behind an Ogre. Drop this and watch people freak out.
This guy knows his meta. BGH reckts this card like a boss. Since everyone knows, BGH is the best card in the game, we also know that this card is bad cause of BGH. BGH is love. BGH is life.
It is terrible help for new players, if he was 8/6 then yes, cheap "counter" to Ragnaros.
It isn't terrible, it should suffice in some decks from Ranks 20 because newer players don't know how to save removal and might have a hard time dealing with a 7/7 divine shield minion in the late game.
