      The card just says it doesn’t lose durability, not unlimited attacks

        Fool’s bane grants unlimited attacks

    Realistically, this card is “Battlecry: Your weapon gains 1 durability” or “Battlecry: Deal damage equal to your weapon to an enemy.” This is because the opponent is very likely to kill a 3 health minion on 4/5 mana.

    In the first situation, the card compares very poorly with Upgrade!, which is only worth one mana. In the second, it seems to be super good, but considering that you have to give up your hero attack for the round, the damage is blocked by taunts, and you have to pay health… yeah, it still balances out.

    Noteworthy is that if it survives for two applications it’s great. If it doesn’t (which it usually won’t)… it’s underwhelming. I don’t think we’ll see too much of this guy.

      “Battlecry: Your weapon gains 1 durability + Your opponent discards removal + Your opponent taps out and doesn’t develop next turn” and on the off chance he doesn’t have an answer it snowballs.

        You can’t just add “Your opponent discards removal”. That’s part of the body existing, and we’ve already calculated it into the card’s value. Your opponent definitely doesn’t have to tap out to deal with this thing. A lot of classes can deal with this thing for two mana or less, assuming they don’t already have something on the board that can kill it.

        The other thing I didn’t mention is that this card is especially underwhelming in Rogue where most frequently, their weapon will have 1 attack. None of the Rogue’s weapons other than its hero power actually see play, and unless you’re running another weapon buffing card (which Rogues almost never do nowadays), it’s just going to preserve your Hero Power for another turn. Is that really worth it? No, no it’s not.

        On the flip side of that, there IS Envenom weapon. But on the flip side of THAT, that card doesn’t actually see play in constructed because it ends up costing too much health. You can combo it with the new weapon, but now it’s a 3 card, 10 mana combo that you’re not likely to get off (And doing it over two turns in this case isn’t really an option since you want to go it while you’re still immune from the weapon battlecry). This card just ends up having too many asterisks on it when you look closely, and I’m not even more convinced that it won’t do anything.

        It would be a different matter in Warrior, which has tons of beefy weapons, but I think this guy is going to do approximately nothing.

          It’s a removable creature that comes out ahead if they trade turns with you removing it. That’s not why it wouldn’t see play. If there is room in the meta for another weapon heavy deck this is a good card.

        Add “Hero power: Your weapon can’t be destroyed during your opponent’s next turn.” and we’re talking

      That’s a great combo and all, but you would still lose health unless you had a Violet Illusionist. So you would have to pre-equip the weapon.

    This with that Rogue card that gives your weapon Poisonous should be good, effectively giving you another free enemy minion kill from it.

    Maybe this will also improve that card that grants Rogue weapons Lifesteal.

    Combines well with the new weapon for Rogue. Because of the low health it is too easy to get rid of imo.

      Warrior doesn’t need this… it wouldn’t be run in control, meaning the entire addition of the card would just give them an extra swing with a 4 damage war axe or arcanite reaper in pirate warrior, great idea 😀

      Warrior one would be too op. I forget the name, but they have a weapon that allows them tin attack multiple times per turn. Combine that with the minion that makes you immune on your turn and you’d be able to clear a board no problem
