    Dragon pally definitely getting support desperately needed this would help early game and it also supports idea of a big pally using dragons if use duel and prismatic lens.

      The shield requires that you already have a board, but this is a strong combat trick. Could be a sleeper, but I’d guess not.

    Y’all called me insane for crafting nozari and cathedral gargoyles.
    Said it was a waste of dust.

    It probably still was tbh.

        That’s truly sickening, I don’t understand what’s so magical about dragons to people, it’s all a bunch of waifu happy anime obsessed freaks

          This is the year of the dragon if remember I would be disappointed if they didn’t go all out for last expansion.

            I mean year of the raven didn’t see another Medivh themed expansion? You know maybe Mammoth should’ve had Rastakhan in it (you know, Zandalari, Elephants?)

          Well the difference though is dragons have their own race type unlike mammoth and Raven which fall under beasts. So it wouldn’t make as much sense to make a focus on those animals and since there’s a whole bunch of different types and factions of dragons with various forms that’s another big difference.

            Well sorry, I would’ve wanted to see more birds and ravens last year throughout the expansions, just for some theme, I don’t care for dragons though as much, there’s something truly beautiful about ravens and their intelligence is truly admirable among avian species, (note my profile pic) ????

          Don’t worry you’ll be able to see a nice Raven when Warcraft 3 reforged is released. New art looks awesome wonder if they’ll tune up some hearthstone images to match.

          Have you seen some of the remodeled designs? The one murloc looks scary as hell. They’re supposed to be making murlocs be more than just throw away trash for one giving them named leaders. But the artwork for the character s looks nice.

    Insanely good. A lot of people are rating these Dragon cards 5 stars but this is the only one I can say without a doubt will see play. Even if you just have a few low mana dragons, this card is still worth it. Imagine if Argent Protector has one extra health and charge. Insane. Downsides are there isn’t enough dragons for this deck, as Fairie Dragon can’t be used with this. But overall, if there are dragons, this card pushes aggro paladin to the top.

    Finally I get to actually play Dragon paladin without meming the Deck. 5 Stars.

      I assume Dragon Speaker would be one of the cards? ; D

            Warrior about to Play Dr Boom: I am inevitable
            Paladin playing holy wrath: And I…am…Iron Man

            [Drawn Shirvallah]

            Ok I should make a shorter version of endgame where thanos is warrior and iron man is kangor, Hawkeye is a midrange hunter, his family is animal companions, black widow dying is the conjurer’s calling nerf etc.

            I see 14 million futures
            And in how many of them is Quest Mage viable?
            None of them…

            Nah regular innkeeper probably, we haven’t heard about him in forever and he always cameos when he opens the app (it’s kinda funny because I haven’t been able to open hearthstone all I see is the blizzard logo so yeah I never get to hear him RIP)

    Dragon paladin as we know it atm doesn’t really want to run small effect cards like this.. That being said this is pretty disappointing. Perharps they’ll change it a bit but seeing what Nozdormu is like, that probably won’t be the case. 1.5/5

      This is better than you think it is a 1 cost 1/2 bonus with most likely guarantee of divine shield is great for dragon pally during early and mid game to try and keep control since decks a bit slow atm. Being able to trade the shield into opponents early minions has value especially if had more health or high attack.

    Divine strength on steroids. Divine strength has never seen play in a midrange deck, but the card itself was really good: it was one of the strongest play in Galvadon paladin and the stats really made a minion sticky early on. Will a midrange dragon build be viable? Perhaps a highlander version? Could be, even because paladin already has decent dragon synergies. Dragon speaker and the package from RoS could be the hearth and soul of the archetype.
