It’s no powercreep at all. Just normal stats doesn’t do anything special for the early board. You get some value from it but thats still just good in classes that are using the armor. I don’t say it’s bad but way overrated.
It’s good in any control deck. It helps you in early, it’s 2 mana 2/3(not bad stats). It also helps the priest quest. And the new armor-syngery warrior spells.
Like I said, it has to have synergy with something to make it good otherwhise it’s just a 2 mana 2/3 on board what isn’t good enoug those days.
Soo good ! Borderline broken.
This is the definition of P O W E R C R E E P. I mean, even with the rager, the 1hp could mean a pin, with frost lich jaina, to proc the thing and stuff, or the 2 mana 3/2 beast that sometimes draws…
THIS TIME, it is literally a 2/3 crocolisk, another 2/3 beast with no downside whatsoever other than… it could be revived with N’zoth, filling a spot you may need for another bigger minion? or, it could proc the shitty hunter ooze that copies a deathrattle? Dude, this is a strictly better version in every case, not even close. Sure, 3 armor does not break the game, but you would never prefer a river crocolisk over this one, compared to how 1hp could be better than 2, magma ice rager, or 5 mana and 4 mana (similar to how Leeroy nerf means now it can be summoned via Firelands portal, what is REALLY good)
Honestly one of my favorite cards released in kobolds and catacombs simple yet very good and common so imma be drafting these all day in arena, good job blizzard love it.

This is so solid for any class, and downright necessary for Warrior. I really like this expansion’s armor warrior package, it looks to be very powerful and relatively skillful to play (for a hearthstone deck at least).
solid arena realyc good constructed wont save you from lethal but you always gain value from battelcry
It says deathrattle not battlecry so it’s not a immediate value but for later on good card
This is the true substitute for Fiery War Axe in Control Warrior xD
River Crocolisk is being beaten by crabs and beetles
