    Now that we know the legendary for Druid, the 10 mana 12/12 that can’t be targeted by spells or HPs, this card is what makes that legendary really good! At least imo.
    Also with Warden will be a ton of value :D.

    Stunning Druid art so far! Thats how Druid should feel and also this whole expansion looks so good gj BlissIlustrytors!

    As someone who has played a ton of token druid, this card doesn’t seem that good. Maybe a one of, but there are much better ways to buff your minions.

    Might be worth including one in Jade Druid since Brann rotates out – gets you even more value from your Golems… or improves the chances on the Auctioneer surviving to begin the Jade Idol death march:

    Turn 6: Jade Behemoth
    Turn 7: Gadgetzan Auctioneer > Coin > Innvervate > Evolving Spores

    If you get stealth or “can’t be targeted” there’s a good chance of having 8 mana to play with on the Auctioneer next turn – HOWEVER with both Living Roots and Raven Idol going out of rotation, Druid is losing 2 key cheap cards that can power the Auctioneer draw; Mark of the Lotus maybe?

    The Jade Idol will be in there either way though.

      many jade decks aren’t even running auctioneer now… so at best you are pumping golems that don’t really need it

        I suspect ever fewer will be running Auctioneer when Living Roots and Raven Idol go out of rotation; so yeah, I’m not convinced by this card yet – I can’t really see a huge number of applications where this would be a definite upgrade from current Druid buffs … and I can’t see Living Mana > Evolving Spores (poison) becoming a really expensive Druid board-clear somehow 🙂

        I might give it a shot in my Beast Druid deck with Verdant Longneck.

      a 4 mana (1/3 chance ) conceil seems good to you ?

      This does seem fun with the idea that Brann is leaving. I still play Auctioneer with mine so that late game with Fandrel and the Jade Idols becomes fun and then keep this for that.

    I don’t understand one aspect of this card. Do you apply separate adapatations to each of your mionions on board on by one – in which case this card is good. Or do you choose one adaptation and apply it too all minions, in which as each it’s a average card.

    +3 attack, perma bloodlust, ok in token
    deathrattle 2 x 1.1 minion aka. soul of the forest v.2, only ok in token
    windfury – ok in token if you have a few 3+ attack minions on board.
    cant be targeted – ok in some situations with high attack minions on board
    +1.1 – aka. jade lotus, worth 1 mana
    +3 health – meh
    divine shield – meh
    poisonous – bad
    taunt – if playing jade it can be ok. in token, lol…aweful.
    stealth – you probably cast this before attacks so mega NO

    I feel this is more for token decks, and then it works best for finisher. But you already have savage roar which is way more reliable. Combo with savage sounds awesome but gives you too many dead cards if you don’t have board control.

    In jade its for a 1 turn before your dead last minute survival trick to either get enough damage for kill or get taunt up. At best I think it will be ok:ish in jade.

    Sure it seems lacking now, but once you see the druid quest… it will still be average at best.

    Making every new Druid card horrible doesn’t fix Jade it just forces people into Jade even more… Give people an alternative or fixe the Idol already

      This card is far better than people think. It needs to be costed carefully because of the versatility. It can be a 1 mana mark of the lotus or a MUCH better savage roar (and even shaman’s bloodlust, for that matter)

    I’m not sure this card is ideal in a token/egg because of the cost that is a little bit too high. But, if you adapt a bunch of jade golems…

    This is VERY expensive, at best its a savage roar (+3 att to minions, but no hero buff) for 4 mana. It could be a 4 mana conceal, a 4 mana mark of the lotus etc… terrible card.

      Yes, sure, “terrible”… wf to all minions or 3 attack or whatever u need..terrible, sure.. u will see…

    • Jonnybgood44

      Savage Roar does +2 attack, Bloodlust does +3 for 5 mana. Also mind you that they keep their buffs, it’s not just a one turn thing…

    enhance-o mech battlecry but you can choose the adaptation for each minion? So versatile…..

      No, it wasn’t an exclusive. We’ll do a big post if we get one of those someday, I’ve linked the official source above.

    This card is actually pretty good in token druid. Now you can give all your dudes +3 attack or windfury Pogchamp

      So it’s an above average card in a deck that literally isn’t on the tier list! This card is insane! In all seriousness, it’s way too high mana and is just a win more card in most decks, and even then won’t be good 50% of the time.
