    without c’thun this card is lackluster it’s got taunt but i’d say bolderfist oger is better. In a c’thun deck this card is great.

    For those who love the lore (like me) there was an interesting link between the Arakkoas and C’thun. Some Arakkoas were members of the Dark Conclave, who were trying to summon an Old God during the Burning Crusade, who is supposed to be C’thun! (now reconfirmed with this card).

    The question isn’t whether or not it’ll be used in cthun druid (which it will be) it’s whether or not it’ll be used in non cthun druid decks

    I hate this card
    Why?
    I wanted to build Warrior C-Thun so badly, but this card just makes Druid C-thun so good that it would almost be a crime to not play it.
    In shot, damn you Blizzard for making this card so good

    Check out my C’THUN DRUID deck.
    Tell me if you think something like this will be competitive enough for ladder in standard.

      to much high cost. Maybe add a astral or the minion that gives you a empty mana crystal, (Or norish)

        Yeah I agree. I think you should remove Cairne and something else to put 2 Darnassus Aspirants

    This is another solid C’Thun card for the Druid class. I think C’Thun Druid will be a thing, and I think it means that combo Druid is going to get nerfed very very hard in a few days during that live stream

    Being a common and the fact that C’Thun is a free legendary, means we are likely to see a lot of the newer players playing Druid c’thun decks… this card is really good and too good to be common should rare at least.

      Rarity does not affect how good a card is. Remember Shredder?

      If you are talking from an arena standpoint, cards that interract with C’Thun will not show up in arena so who cares.

    So they want to make sure there is a playable Druid deck after nerfing force roar?

    Theres still 60 or so cards to be revealed. Im sure the other classes will get 1-2 more Cthun cards as well. patience.

      There will only be a total of 16 cthun cards so there will be about one more cthun card for each class

    6 mana 5/7 taunt minion on druid. This card would be good even without the C’thun battlecry,

    6 mana for 5/7 stats with taunt AND give your C’thun +3/+3!!! This is just really broken in my eyes

      Well 6 mana for 12 stats is like average but taunt also which is also nice. Its not a broken card its just ok and will fit well in a cthun deck

    Just about better than Skeram Cultist in every situation, will be a staple in druid C’Thun. They obviously want it to be one of the better C’Thun decks

    C’thun druid is reality now

    Great card- very potent versus aggro with a good statline, and a solid late-game effect.

      The question remains, though; why does 1 class get 2 C’Thun related cards? Hoping that this card is legit- should help slow down the meta further.

        I’d expect this card means every class gets two C’thun cards- only half of the cards are revealed for the set! Very exciting.

          Impossible there will only be 16 cthun buff cards

            Probably just means that combo Druid is getting nerfed so hard that they felt bad for people who’ve invested heavily in the druid class and decided to throw them a bone.
