Its extremely good. No 2 drop (except Manastorm) can contend with it and most early removal cant kill it (flamecannon and swp come to mind, im not sure if there's something else). It's an almost guaranteed 2 for 1 if dropped on curve, and you can follow with the second one if you get it!
It's not really 2 drop. Take it this way - it has body of the 3-drop. Turn 2 you drop this and opp responds with 2-drop. But turn 3 you can play only 2-drop, which is going to be conquested with 3-drop. Ultimately after both turns 3 have passed, both players have the same board (assuming no trading) - a 2-drop and a 3-drop.
Shaman only looks strong because we've only seen Shaman cards pretty much so far...Once we see the full set of class cards for all i think Shaman will end up being in the same spot...A weak arena pick.
this is EXACTLY the kind of card i wanted to see. a way to get early tempo against any super agro deck. AND it goes perfectly with the new TOTEM buffs and such.. Very stoked to see this card, easily my favorite of the day.
