Feral Gibberer Card Review
Hello there Kuriboh, aren’t you cute! This little fuzzball… is just way too small. It has been historically true that 1-health minions have to be extremely pushed in order to see any play and Feral Gibberer is no exception to this rule. While it has the potential to start replicating like a pesky menace, it also dies to literally anything that deals damage. Even if it gets going and starts to swarm the board, it will be gone by the first sign of AoE damage. It doesn’t trade up even into other 1-cost minions! So, what do you do with it?
Buff it, that’s what. This card can grow in numbers very quickly once it starts connecting with the opponent’s face and an army of tokens is just waiting to get buffed. Enter your Mark of the Lotus, Power of the Wild, etc. In a class such as Paladin you can buff them straight in your hand! Alternatively, you can use all those extra 1-cost cards you have just generated to trigger abilities that care about minions being summoned. Remember how 1 health was bad? With a Steward of Darkshire in play, suddenly they all have Divine Shield and aren’t looking half bad. Switch that up, look at their single attack point. In Wild, ye olde Hobgoblin is waiting to buff the fuzzballs into scary monsters. Even an ordinary 1 mana 1/1 can do great things… when you have lots and lots of them!
Despite all that, we still have to look at how often we will realistically be able to generate extra copies. The 1/1 body is as fragile as they get and it’s hard to imagine it surviving just about any reasonable turn in Constructed. That said, sometimes the opponent could simply not have anything to play, letting you get the ball rolling, especially in the Arena format, where Turn 1 plays are reasonably likely to be skipped. But without any good way to give this guy Charge, you should not count on him surviving the turn.
