Cabal Shadow Priest : Good body
I think Auchenai Soulpriest has a better body.
Ok, I legitimately miss the Sorry emote, but only for when I disconnect or get really lucky.
For anyone else, I guess you can have your fun too.
Hey. I feel like I should tell you about Leeroy Jenkins, because I was asked few times about him. I even got a eustion like "Why is it even a legedary?" Well, I will try to explain.
Firt of all, his manaconst and stats. Most of Charge minions follow the rule "attack = mana cost", proved by Wolfrider, Huffer, old Arcane Golem, etc. Leeroy Jenkins has 6 attack for 5 mana, and it makes a bif gifference due to his manacost and atttack. He is used in aggro and midrange decks, which compare high efficiency with low mana cost, so their curve and damage dealt should be great. That's why 6 attack for 5 mana is great, but 5 attack for 6 is terrible(Hello, Reckless Rocketeer). This is why other chargers also not in particular use. You may have lost numerous time to opponent's Leeroy Jenkins topdeck whn you are at <6 Hp, huh? Even tournaments are win with that. Skillstone always punishes those who doesnt like RNG.
Another thing are combos with Leeroy Jenkins. The kings of the comboes are Warlock and Rogue. Nowadays combo-renolocks run cards such as Leeroy Jenkins, Power Overwhelming, Faceless Manipulator. They find 1-2 Powers, use Emperor Thaurissan on thse cards and inflict like (6+4(+4))*2 damage, what is equals 20-28 damage from empty board with only 1-2 cards discounted. That is their main or additional win condition. Reckless Rocketeer or Wolfrider wouldn't make that combo neaither possible nor efficient.
Rogue is the ultimate rival of Leeroy Kenkins. Especially miracle rogue. One of their win conditions, along with usual burst and Edwin VanCleef. They just go for Leeroy, Cold Blood, Cold Blood, Conceal as their most common combo. But with a little help of Xaril, Poisoned Mind and his Briarthorn Toxin or Fadeleaf Toxin may enchance such combo. So here you have 7 mana combo for 28+ damage in 2 turns, If Leeroy survives. On the same turn they may find another burst for remained 3 mana. Considering stuff like Preparation and overall low manacost of rogue stuff, it is kinda a thing. They might use additional Eviscerate and Deadly Posion for pushing more damage, or Sap to remove our taunt.
What is more, Leeroy can be bounced back to hand for one more play. Shadowstep, Bloodthistle Toxin, Youngful Brewmaster and so on. keep in mind the classic combo of Leeroy Jenkins + Faceless Manipulator, as a 10 mana 12 damage. With other buffs/spells it may go higher with help of Emperor Thaurissan, as i said before. There are even series of One Turn Kill challenge with all classes. So you may find a deck that is able to do so. Just as an option to your other decks. So you may find an interesting finishing move for him in your decks.
SOmetimes Leeroy Jenkins is just used as emergency 5 mana Fireball to get rid of poweerful enemy minion. A little watse, but is more important to lose a part of win condition rather than lose a game. Keep in mind his spawned Whelps, as they will kill Leeroy Jenkins next turn. If your opponent has Knife Juggler or Darkshire Councilman, this drawback may backfire you. But on the other hand, some hunters use Leeroy Jenkins + Unleash the Hounds combo, so its 8 mana 8+ damage. Just for note.
So, to sum up, I would say that Leeroy Jenkins is not a useless card, so if you play hunter/warlock/rogue or midrange/aggro/combo archtypes, you may consider crafting him. He persists in Expert set and now being widely used. He was kinda reincarnated after Miracle rogue return, and has been used in Renolocks since the appearance of this archtype.
P.S. If i missed some useful information, feel free to write down here, I will include it into review if it's important. You'll be a great contributor.

The Whispers of the Old Gods Set:
"This deck is so much fun! I went from Rank 10 up to Rank 20 in about two hours. I can recommend this deck to everybody who would like to ladder up as quickly as possible."
This made me laugh so hard I shot Mountain Dew out of my eyeballs. Thank you oh kind sir for bringing the fun back to Hearthstone!!!! :D :D
This is aggro shaman FailFish
Facehunter was the king of aggro once. Not because it was the best against the field (which is the popular myth), but because it crushed aggro decks like nothing else.
Then someone at Blizzard in a a fit of wisdom decided that aggro decks should have the highest health early game minions in the game. Because if they do the most damage, it stands to reason they should also be able to take the most damage.
And thus fell facehunter, who relied on actual damage - not broken valuecards. Hate the deck all you want, but atleast it didn't make boards that you can't even dent with AoE.
But facehunter is lurking around the corner with his classic cards. Waiting for the day when these imposters rotate out, and then he'll make you sorry you ever dared think that playing a low curve deck was a good idea.
And that'll be a good day.
Um, I do play face decks sometime. Can be fun. I decided to play Aggro Shaman for a while just to understand it more when I go up against it. But I like to play a variety of decks - face, combo, mid range, control, whatever.
Of course the idiot control purists always think they're so much cleverer than everyone because they play control. We'll skip over the fact that most of them can't get past rank 15 but hey, at least they're playing the game the right way. Loser pride.
Rogue. Just feels great facing an opponent who doesn't play some cancer deck, but a highly skillful class.
