    Another great card for the Big Shaman archetype, but for how good this is, big minion decks can’t thrive if they don’t have ways to cheat their minions out in earlier turns. The issue is this: big minion decks have to use a lot of space in their deck for their big minions, but said big minions can’t be played early one, making those decks particularly bad against aggressive aggro decks; however, they also suck against control decks because they usually have a finite number of resources and control decks will keep all of their removal cards for those big minions, rendering them ineffective. There are a couple of solutions to this issue: playing Vandarr or playing Renathal. Vandarr reduces the cost of your minions, making it so the big minions can take protect you from aggressive decks and kill control deck because they come out too early for them to have the removals they need to protect themselves. Renathal makes it so you can put more stuff into your deck, so that you can include some tech cards against aggressive decks and put more value against control decks, while having 10 more health to fend off early aggression. The good thing about Renathal is that it’s consistent, while Vandarr needs to be drawn in order to do anything; all in all, I can see Renathal being the only small minion in that deck, but will it be enough for Big Shaman to be as powerful as it needs to? I have my doubts: Denathrius and the Jailer might be the two wincons you need to win against Control decks, but at that point is all of that big minion stuff even worth running if you end up winning with two cards which don’t have any particular interaction with that stretegy (except for being two big 10 mana minions)? I am not convinced Big Shaman will end up being meta, I think it will be pretty lackluster.

    This looks underwhelming
