This is good because of the Twinspell, otherwise, this would not be worth putting into your deck. Also in pure Paladin decks, you can get this randomly generated which means flooding the board with no deck slots wasted.
If you think this is bad, then what about this....
Turn 1, Brazen Zealot. Turn 2, Air Raid. Brazen attacks for 4 damage. If they cannot kill the Brazen the opponent is in deep trouble. Ping classes can go ahead and kill it, but other than Mage, will be tanking another 4 damage.
Then you have Sky Claw OR Air Raid again on turn 3. If that is your curve, your opponent will not have a chance.
This also can work in a Highlander style deck, giving you 2 spells for 1 card slot AND board presence.
How is this bad exactly?
Warrior has the invoke card that does 1 damage to all minions, and warpath. Goodbye to your big opening.
Fuck me, how is my favorite class being so left out. Blizzard give paladin something good or I will actually stop playing this imbalanced game. The cards we got last year weren't even close to whatever the other classes got...
My feelings exactly.
This year has been brutal for Paladin. Trash legendaries, utter nonsense like this card, and archetypes that are just toyed with but never really given the power to succeed (e.g. Pure Paladin.)
I have to hope starting in April they give this class some life again.
