    Just so people don’t confuse this as having “Windfury”
    Ben Brode did say on stream that this replaces its regular attack.

    Quite a swingy minion. You won’t play it in Control Warrior since it’s not the type of card you really want on the build, but on some kind of tempo warrior (which is not a crazy thing) it can be really good.

    So wind fury, but with one turn being uncontrollable, might be good for control if the first attack can hit the right minions

    Can it attack again after the auto attack?

    Isn’t this just reverse power creep on Ogre Brute?

      No, because it can attack twice in one turn. Once randomly at the beginning of turn and once as normal. Basically a three mana 4/4 windfury

        Did they confirm this? The card doesn’t say windfury, so my assumption was the random attack exhausts the minion.

          This turns out to be correct, but I don’t understand why so many people assumed it this way. In my opinion, the card text suggests otherwise, especially when compared to Swamp King Dred. I suppose you’re meant to interpret it as the attack being in your own turn being the relevant distinction? But at the very least that’s not very clear in my opinion.
