    Bad statline, no inherent synergy except for the other terrible 1-health paladin minions in the set. If your goal is to draw, just play 2 copies of crystology. 1/5

    5/5, just because lions.

    For 1 more mana that loot hoarder you draw one more card and get 1 more atk. That’s a very good deal. Combo paladins already play Novice engineer, Thalnos, and Elven archer, so the 1 health targets are there. This seems like it fits right in.

      Novice Engineer, Thalnos and Elven Archer are all played because they only have 1 attack – you can pull them with Crystology. In a combo deck, this is just not as good as Crystology, it costs 2 more and can be silenced.

      However, I can see it in a more aggro or Divine Shield oriented deck – Sandwasp Queen, Argent Squire, Scarlet Crusader (maybe) and Giggling Inventor with Autodefence Matrix and Never Surrender.

        “Not as good as Crystology” is not a valid argument, since Crystology is completely overpowered.
        If it’s better than a playable card then it’s playable.
        If it’s worse than a not-playable card then it’s not playable.
        But if it’s worse than a playable card, that doesn’t tell you anything.

          I never said it wasn’t playable – or even that it wasn’t good… I actually think that on its own, or in a different deck, Salhet’s Pride looks like a fairly decent card. I’m just not seeing it in either Shirvallah OTK or (Wild) Four Horsemen OTK Paladin decks because Crystology performs the same role – only much better.

            “It’s worse than Crystology therefore it won’t be played” is not a valid argument, even if you add “in Shirvallah OTK” at the end of the sentence.

        This is horrible in combo paladin when Crystology exists.

    I really hate these 1 health cards. If this 1 health thing going to work it’s gonna be a super agro deck like murloc shaman. And if this does not work, Paladin pretty much did not get any cards this expansion and wont be really a class that can be played until the next expansion.

    So, Blizzard is heavily hinting at some upcoming synergy with 1-health minions, there’s no other reason for making new 1-health minions at the 1 mana, 2 mana and 3 mana marks. As for grading this before we know what that synergy will be, that’s easy, this minion has a bad body and it draws you other minions with bad bodies; none of these new cards even get drawn from Crystology, the best card in the game right now. Needs some heavy synergy to be playable. 2/5

    Passive reward “your minions have reborn?” Maybe? Idk.

      Since Paladin is a “defending class” against the attacker of Dalaran, Pally will might not get Reborn? Warrior and Priest are more related to that. I dont see Pally getting any Reborn keyword. But Priest is an attacker of dalaran and is getting Plague, so this theme related thinking dont make any sense from me :D.
      Iam not sure. The secret synergy with these 1 health minions is pretty good!

    So who wants to place bets on Salhet being Pally legendary or something similar?

    There is no way that the paladin quest doesn’t have something to do with 1 health minions.

    I hate this. Standalone, it’s awful, but when Paladin eventually gets another aggro deck, this will be really good. 3/5.

      How are those two things related???

        “since all this new minions has 1 health”, you had to go “Never Surrender” for it to survive aggroing. Do I have to explain cards like “Fan of Knives” etc?
        *Sigh* if I have to explain everything, people start becoming lazy.

    Take into account the pally secret to boost cards health when opponent plays a spell and start seeing a pattern this is definitely going to be a set focussed on hand buff and aggro attacks. Pally secret may have to do with giving health to minions or buffing hand.

    I don’t think the 1 health synergy thing will be good but this card could be used in Shirvallah otk. It draws itself, Novice Engineer and Bloodmage Thalnos as well as cards I might be forgetting or potentially useful ones yet to be seen in this expansion.

    So this card draws possibly the Sandwasp Queen and Brazen Zealot too. Not sure if i wanna get a board full of 1 health minions?! Call to Adventure? Handbuff Pally? Magic Carpet Pally? Some single target buff pally? I dont know what this can look like. I really hope that Paladin can do more than just mechs and OTK in the Future! 2/5

      I am really hoping the pally quest isn’t going to be an Aggro Carnessa style deck. Bust so far 30% of their cards look like they will be supporting this play style. I better be a passive reward like summoned minions either get divine shield or 2 extra health BC these cards wont stand up to warrior/priest/carpetlock/most rogues/anything really if they have to spam 1 health minions. I’m not saying it won’t be viable(we are missing the other seven cards) but a deck centered around 1 health minions will rely on the anti spell secret which you can only pack 2 just so fan of knives/Arcane explosion(without +spell damage which I have yet to see in heist) can’t clear your board.
      On terms of design it isn’t busted 2/5. On artwork 1/5 since we see one lion and not a pride.
