    +100 dust.
    Fits right into this expansion themes:
    – Slow
    – Over-costed
    – Combo-ish
    Handbuff wasn’t seeing much play when it only needed a minion in hand. There are less than 10 minions in the game that have Lifesteal, and about half are class cards.
    So this is a slow combo card with a narrow condition that is hard to meet; if you don’t hit the combo you have a choice: Hold the card, or 4 mana for a 3/3.

    It curves into the bloodqueen, but that’s about it. There’s no real incentive to play a 4 mana 5/5 beyond that.

    I really like this card… I think we don´t need a ”lifesteal deck” to make this work, some few lifesteal dudes can make it a good card, especially if the meta becomes more about control, so we don´t need to necessarily play this right on turn 4…. time will tell us, but I already wanna try it out 🙂

    I’m not sure lifesteal will be common enough in any deck for this to see play. Even when it goes off, it’s still not THAT good. That’s a pretty clear sign that this won’t make it. Though buffing Lifesteal minions is good, I don’t believe it’ll work. Handbuff in general also never worked, so I’m willing to put by money on the “no” horse pretty securely on this one.

      Same here. If it was a +4/+4 instead of +2/+2, that might actually be appealing.

      As it stands, there really is no reason whatsoever to add this card to ANY deck. There are just way better options.

        Yeah cause blessing of kings needs to be powercreeped onto a minion….

        Not saying this card will see any play, but your design is busted as hell. This into a turn 5 9/9 bloodworm would be the most common play seen if it was your buff, it might even work now with a 7/7 without a big drawback on turn 5.
