    No one person is good enough or smart enough to nail everything. Good analysis should incorporate your own opinion as well as using insight from others knowledgeable on the subject. Most of these choices and explanations show a lack of regard for the insights of others...

    Given that there are thousands of people on this site and everyone is going to have an opinion, you cannot possibly take all of them into account because there will inevitably be polarised perspectives on certain cards. Everything I've quoted you saying is true, but even the best players will sometimes vehemently disagree with each other on the viability of a card, and that's fine.

    Hmm, they look like two sides of the same coin, one good and the other evil. I'm officially intrigued.

    There are a few strong minion legendaries this time around, but the DKs are almost all good IMO. I'd very much prefer to pull DKs, especially with the poor, poor Princes running around in packs.

    Not terrible, it's great against decks like Pirate Warrior not for taking the board, but for staying out of burst range once you have board control. It's an alternative to playing taunts.

    Some people compare it to Earthen Ring Farseer and say it usually does the same thing, but I don't think that's true at all. If you use Earthen Ring on yourself to heal for 3 against a burn or aggro deck, that's just 3 healing, those decks can often ignore that and still continue hitting face. This on the other hand has to be dealt with or it heals for 6, 9, 12, and so on. Earthen Ring is better against other types of decks since it can heal minions, but that's also not as big of an advantage as it would be in other classes since Priest can already heal its own minions. If you win control matchups but struggle against face decks, this will help you.

    Most Priests will probably prefer Tar Creeper for a defensive-drop, but still, not a terrible card.

     You're right for the most part, the problem is that it's only got 3 health. It dies in a single hit to most weapons and all but the smallest of minions. If it had 4 health it'd probably be too powerful though - the difference between taking one or two hits before it dies is what makes or breaks this card. Edit: spelling

    I think he would be really cool as a Neutral Hero card

    I thought the same, but you can see him as a minion card in the new reveal vid with Matt Place (@ 1:15). He's on the card log/sidebar.
    As far as build around themes, they've been doing that sort of thing with most neutral legendaries ever since LoE to varying degrees. I like that design philosophy because it generally avoids auto-include cards (like Dr.7). Something to do with minions dying and/or deathrattles would be cool.

    Makes you want to play more weapons to avoid this being a dead draw, but if you have too many weapons then you'll have dead draws anyway because you can't use multiple weapons at once. I can see this as a one of in pirate for face smashing, or to fetch some kind of utility weapon from future expansions. But, as I said, having too many weapons is inherently bad so there's not much room to explore with this card.

    posted a message on Is this Arthas -> Lich King transformation possible?

    The theme of the original 9 heroes being turned into DKs is at the core of the set identity, I don't think they'll break with that. The Arthas skin is a reward for completing the final boss battle with all classes, so most players won't actually get it - it's a special side option for more committed players.

     

    Edit: that said, they could make him a Hero card. Then the Arthas into Lich King transition would still fit within the way they've built the set, more or less.

    They allways can add more cards in the future, like they did all the time. 

     True, and given the theme of the set we might get some decent neutral freeze effects.

    Begging for buffs, lacklustre by itself.

    posted a message on New Card Reveal: Skulking Geist

     It looks like a solid tech choice against Jade Druid, yes, but also Evolve Shaman and several other decks in Wild (ComboLock, Secret Pally, Freeze Mage). There's also the fringe possibility of decks that have 1-Cost spells that are good in the early game but become bad draws later on that Skulking Geist can thin from your deck, a bit like Hemet, Jungle Hunter.

    Considering priest has its own heals, the lifesteal property seems kinda crappy.

    The deathrattle is pretty dank tho but for 9 mana...

     On the latest livestream it was hinted at that the Priest DK Hero is ShadowPriest related, so the heal might be more relevant than we can see from the current cards.
