    It’s basicallt Doomsayer’s younger brother. I think it might actually be preety good, maybe in highlander decks where you want that second doomsayer and you can’t. Control might want to create somekind of removal curve in the early with this and doomsayer, but not sure if it is worth it.
    Fun little thing: this might be really good with buffs, since it really stalls the game if it survives the first damage wave. I don’t think you would want to play this just for the interaction though, it’s too cluncky, but when it happens it would be real fun to see in some Trolden episode.

    The big difference with Doomsayer is that if you manage to buff its health and keep It healed, it can activate for more than one turn.

    The one upside of this compared to doomsayer is that you can health buff this if you want to have it go off multiple times in a row. Maybe you do some divine spirit/power word shield stuff in control priest. That use doesn’t seem particularly practical, but it could be fun.

    *Was about to comment this being a mini-Doomsayer*
    *scrolls down*
    *almost litterally says it’s just like Doomsayer more or less*
    uhhh… Just give it 4 stars. It’s good.

    4 star just because Doomsayer is a 5 one… simple as that

    unpopular opinion: This is no doomsayer.

    Aggro decks can actually deal with this turn 2 if they wanted. Having 5 attack on the board is not difficult. removing 7 is almost impossible without an extra removal. The only time you would want to play this is turn one which is then only a stall tool and not a removal. Anytime after that, it can be removed pretty easily.

    The point is you might as well run doomsayer if aggro is a problem. This just doesn’t scale late game and is not as good early game.

      Missed part of it’s charm it’s a 1 cost 0/5 soft TAUNT your opponent can’t ignore it they have to spend a turn trying to get rid of it and because it’s unlike doomsayer and possible they’re more likely to take that approach. Depending on your class all you might need is that one turn to have a counter card available.

        so you just told me in long form that it is a worse doomsayer. An aggro stall tool is weaker than a board clear. The point I was making is it is still not as good as doomsayer, and since doomsayer is classic, this card will not see play unless they are prepping for HoF doomsayer.

          All really saying is not taking into account since it’s one cost it falls under possibility of being generated by a few other cards.

          Not every card needs to be something you would add to your deck they could also be good tools to pull from cost specific generators.

            Now you are deflecting because that is not what anyone here is arguing. No one is drafting to potentially high roll a randomly generated/discovered one cost that can maybe clear a board. That’s not even something anyone ever considers. If you wouldn’t draft it in a deck before another card, its a pack filler.

          And yet you can’t ignore the odds of it happening doomsayer is great when you can play it but it’s a disastrous card from the RNG pulling. I’ve been screwed over several times because the one lackey that summons a 2 cost decided to summon doomsayer.

          Yes this can be considered weaker than doomsayer but also unlike doomsayer there isn’t as much that trolls you as bad. Summoning it to your opponents side like the new 3/9 taunt can do would mean soon as end turn the other 2 1 cost and possibly other cards will die. Summoning doomsayer from lackey just means opponent will do either face or play spells to set up and end watching you waste your board.

          Overall though this is 2 health less for 1 less cost and 5 dmg tends to kill most of the stuff doomsayer would be used against and would succeed in killing since most higher stuff would be able to kill doomsayer. The only class that can make real use of doomsayer in late game is mage with freeze.

    As others have pointed out, this is similar to Doomsayer. It is fantastic in the early game vs. aggro, but even in the midgame it can help you gain board control. You clear the board then play this, hopefully keeping the board clear until your next turn, where you get to develop minions first; that’s how Control decks gain board control and turn the corner vs. Aggro decks. Worst case scenario, this absorbs five damage that would have gone to your face, and 5 points of healing for one mana is pretty decent, especially for classes that struggle with healing. 4/5

    This is great for decks that are very controlly and weak to aggro. Running 4x Doomsayer is good. Yes, it’s a dead draw starting from the midgame, but control decks just want to survive.

    • DukeStarswisher

      running four low cost removal/stall tools is not great. Two is enough for control alongside spells and other aoe’s. And those two should be doomsayer.

    I just thinking, If control Priests running Quest turn 1, then turn 2 with this one and the Power of word: Shield. so u will get a card and then it will survive with two health for 1 more time explode 5 dmgs. U can heal him for doing quest + delay to midgame for like 1 or 2 turn. Very hard to kill a 0/7 at turn 2 and 3.

      Having this stay alive is a wet dream that never comes true. Okay, if opponent doesn’t have a board, then yeah. But this will mean he’s control too, so idk if it is worth the stunt of buffing and healing this anti aggro tech (even if you’d progress your quest).

      If the opponent has some power on board, he’ll hit this so that it dies regardless of the buff.

      Idk … I think it’s far worse than Doomsayer. Might be used in HL decks as a second copy of DS; besides that, it won’t be used imho.

        I think he will be a fine card, not so bad. I want him in my priest control or Quest Priest. Very Nice – 3.5 stars.

      Not to mention after quest complete, give +3/+3 to this, and should survive even 2 more turns… not sure if worth it, but doable…

    IMO it is worst that doomsayer but it does not mean that it will not be playable. Maybe in decks that really want to stall early and want to play that and two doomsayers or in higlander decks that just can play 1 doomsayer. I think it has 2 upsides. First one is being cheaper, but you do not want to play this in t1 if you go first. Second one is to activate it more that once, but requires other cards

    Nice one drop for a slow deck can play this to buy time since opponent either ignores this for face or spend a turn or resources killing this. Basically it’s a 1 cost 0/5 that works as a soft taunt.

    so, if some way you could buff his health by just 1 point, it will survive the ordeal, and does it again on the next turn?
    you mean, two way doomsayer with 1 mana?
    sign me in please.

    Doomsayer is better in every way. The 1 and 2 mana difference isn’t going to matter enough. The only deck I can see this replacing doomsayer in is actually Quest druid since it’s easier to manage the quest with a 1 mana card.

    • Thraben

      This card kinda looks like it could be much like the Goblin Bomb, a card that perharps another card can produce. It would be pretty weird to have an explosive keg as a minion card by itself. I actually hope it is cause that would be pretty neat.

      absolutely, in quest druid this should be an auto include

    if this had been a mech, it would have been op, with ziliax.

    Wow now the one-drop pool is just as dangerous as the two-drop pool. In a deck though, I’d prefer a doomsayer, but this still has good value.

      But just imagine getting two of these with zul’drak ritualist… XD

      • Thraben
        December 2, 2019 at 12:51 am

        I can already see Kripp having op field in arena when the opponent plays Zul’drak ritualist and does exactly that… 😀
