Prince Liam Card Review
Very interesting card. On a first glance, it looks like a build-around card, but I’m not absolutely sure if it’s consistent enough to be one. But then I’ve realized – you don’t have to build a deck around it. You can just play a pretty regular Midrange Paladin, maybe with some Secrets and Bellringer Sentry, and then if you draw it in the mid/late game, you play it and turn those 1 mana cards in your deck into something better.
Because let’s be honest – random Legendaries aren’t always most powerful or impactful. There are lots of better options. But no matter how I look at it, I’d still rather draw a random Legendary than a 1 mana card in the late game.
1 mana cards are necessary if you want your deck to stand a chance against faster builds, or possibly to put pressure against slower ones. But they aren’t good draws later. So playing this is like increasing the average value of your future draws.
What’s going on for this card are the stats – 5 mana 5/5 is solid. Of course, it’s not amazing, but it’s not like playing it without getting any immediate effect is going to lose you the game.
I could see this being played in some kind of Midrange Paladin. Very interesting card, and it’s just on the edge of being a meme card too, but I’ll still test it out.
P.S. This card could go from the “meme” to “actually solid” with one change – if it also changed cards in your HAND and not only in your deck. Right now, if you draw a bunch of 1 cost cards first and then this, it will feel really bad…
Card rating: 4/10
