    This will likely see play in a midrange warrior deck, which can easily increase the attack with Stage Dive, Parade Leader, and Inner Rage. On turn 4 especially, 3 damage to all enemy minions can be devastating against aggro or tempo decks.

    I believe that this card will find homes in multiple decks since it has so many combos. I think it can and will be game-ending in a lot of instances. 5 stars.

      4 mana deal 1 damage to all enemy minions is not impressive at all, by the standards of today’s meta. In fact most aggro decks seem to play 2-3 health minions now, like battlemage, bonechewer brawler or treants you get from token cards.

      You’d need somewhere around a 2-3 damage aoe to really make a dent in your opponent’s board – 1 aoe damage is pretty irrelevant now. And to get a 2-3 damage aoe off this card you’d need to run some handbuffs, which I’d say would make your deck pretty weak if this is the only card you’re looking to handbuff.

      Not only that, but this guy’s aoe clear only triggers once. So after his initial effect his 1/4ish body left on the board would be pretty irrelevant.

      And against pretty much every non small minion-based aggro deck, this card is unplayable garbage.

    Handbuff it and it’ll be terrifying. 4 stars.

    This looks solid for Libram decks, and if any class gets a decent amount of playable handbuff cards, even better!

    This + Cold Blood = the forbidden rogue board clear

    Obviously needs a buff. 4 mana for 1/6 rush is bad value, what’s more, it needs to attack and survive at least 1 damage. Good counter for token board, but 1 damage to minions is not very effective at clearing board, especially at 4 mana which is often too late already.

    Buff to 3 mana cost, or at least 2/6 body. Or there’s some frenzy synergy unseen for now. 3/10.

      Hard disagree, the potential for a strong early game board as a neutral shouldn’t be great on its own. It having one attack gives like pally priest and warrior the ability to synergize with it by buffing it’s attack .

      Implying that it will be dealing 1 damage, and not be used alongside buffs to deal more damage. Even 2 damage makes it more than viable.

      Without any support, it’s a neutral 1/6 with rush bundled with an Arcane Explosion, don’t see how it “obviously” needs a buff.
