This is a great card - Paladin needed a non-Aldor 3 drop minion since Scarlet Purifier was just not cutting it. When TGT releases, depending on whether control/midrange pally drops chow or not, between 2x minibot, 2x muster, and 2x this, we can really get scary value of our hero power and counter aggro. Add Jousting to the list and we are becoming more and more of a solid control archetype again. E. the Pure and Tuskarr Jouster are really great cards to help our toolbox as well.
Even getting one recruit of value can let you trade with effectively and the synergy with Justicar, QM, and other inspire minions is real.
