    Bad stats + no immediate impact on the board historically mean it won’t see play.
    that dragon synergy better be off the hook or this one might be a bit overrated.

    Always hated that dragon Pali was never good. But now, we have some really good cards being thrown into the mix, I’m giving this an extra star just for pushing this awesome deck type, 4/5

    Bronze Herald really is pretty alright for a dragon deck pretty similar to MSoG Dragon Priest.

    Cathedral Gargoyal into this into Scaleworm or Twilight Drake into Dragon Speaker into one of the 7/7 tokens or some other decent turn six play should be pretty alright. I don’t think there’s enough worthwhile dragon support for Paladin to make it on that deck’s level, but there is likely going to be at least a few new dragon cards that have as of yet to be revealed.

    It should do something in Standard at some point at the very least.

    This makes dragon paladin viable. I think the accepted minimum number of dragons in a deck is 6 (priest) to avail of bonus’ from holding in hand – and that’s really tight from experience. To hit 6-8 in paladin without serious sacrifices was/is hard and that’s assuming that the deck is end of midrange to control, which is also a pipe dream atm (unless otk). Basically this card enables dragon paladin by giving dragon synergy but what deck the dragons fit into will be interesting – a midrange dragon paladin that utilises cta tarim tirion lich rag could really punch hard with power spike from 5-8.

    Could bronze herald be heralding the bronze dragon flight?

    This kind of effect is good, since dragon decks always were easier to play when you have guaranteed dragons to draw. Like, the lowkey best use of Netherspire Historian was that you could pull an extra dragon to make sure all the other dragon synergies in your hand would proc.

    Sadly this cards comes after WitchDoctor and Cathedral Gargoyle, but its effect is still great, a good mix of tempo and value that even buffs your Twilight Drake. A great add if dragon Paladin can be a thing (granted, that’s a big if).

    This is good and important not because of this card itself, although it’s pretty solid, but because of cathedral gargoyle, a card that’s been lying dormant for an entire year waiting for support with the potential to be super strong with support. Support has arrived, prepare to see a ton of 2 mana 2/2 taunt divine shield on turn two

    Good card and can give you a card playable on curve nothing sucks more than getting bad Mulligan and draws where there’s a turn gap where can’t play anything good and have to hero power for something. The fact that this sets up support for cards requiring a dragon in hand is also nice. Side note of this is that since standard pally loses divine favor this can alieviate some of the strain of possibly emptying your hand quickly.

    Step 1: play Bronze Herald;
    Step 2: kill Bronze Herald, get 2 Bronze Dragons;
    Step 3: play Dragon Speaker;

    Congratulations, you get two 4 Mana 7/7 Dragons, Overload 0.
    Let the memes stay alive forever!

    When it comes to archetypes Blizzard likes to watch people dance around, Dragon Paladin takes the cake. In and out for nearly 5 years I’ve watched expansions toy with pally when it comes to dragons like a star struck wonderboy and I can only expect to be disappointed yet again by one or two effortless nods toward a viable archetype I’ll never get to enjoy alongside a winrate worthy of the joy in playing the deck.

    I see a lot of potential in this card if some sort of dragon paladin (midrange or control) will become a thing. It curves right after cathedral gargoyle and provides turn 4 play by itself.

    that is wha i call a great card. Wild dragon pala needed this, although the amalgam kind of filled in the role a bit. I still think amalgam will see some play in standart. But back in blackrock mountain paladin really struggled againts the priest and warrior dragon decks. While stated as a farie dragon this gives you tons of consistency. And the dragon corsorts proved their value despite not having much support and azure drakes were most oftenly used as tempo option so this can give the paly some good oriented tempo plays. Draconid crusher are very good if you can tempo out some burst. And againts lock you have insta activation of their effects. Or If you oponents pally uses tekal you have some 6 mana 9/9s to contest the board a bit. And even deathwing can be used in a tempo decks if you deside you don;t want ysera or other heavy dragons.
    As for standart with amalgam and the gargole its good tempo as well it can probably see play right away. Although dragon speaker can give you solid stats even for your farie dragons. who doesn’t want a 6/5 can;t be targeted by spells and hero powers minion for 2 mana.

    Could do well in wild, where dragon paladin certainly has more cards to play with. In standard….there’s cathedral gargoyle….Right now I feel like warrior does dragon better in standard, but who knows? Maybe paladin will get more dragons this year. Would definitely help this card out.

    I don’t think Dragon Paladin will be a thing, but this card should see play anyway. 3/2 for 3 mana is a little overcosted, but that’s a small price to pay for the enormous value this provides. Not just that, this also fills out your curve as a 3-drop that gives you a 4-drop. 5/5

    Probably will be great in arena, jury is still out on standard dragon pali. I will make a prediction that one of their legendaries will be a dragon though, so I’m excited to see that.

    3.5/5

    2 Cents:

    More Dragons for Paladin! Hmm. I am truly perplexed this time around.

    The effect of this card is the power to generate more dragons with a decent-enough body. For sure a 3/2 for 3 isn’t mouthwatering but adding 2 Dragons (4/4 for 4) to your hand to continue the steamroll of your Dragon-centric synergy deck? Yes please! The idea is great, the card’s concept is good, however, it feels kind of mundane to see this push again, the same way they gave Discard Warlock a last go with Rastakhan’s Rumble.

    This cards seems good on paper. But will Dragons finally define the class that it, ever since, try to push in the past and more recently? Only time will tell.
