    The best options are:
    Rush + divine shield (5/5 alone)
    Rush + windfury
    Divine shield + taunt

    Flexibility is obviously what gives this card its power.

    The great thing about this card is you don’t have to use it defensively, you can just divine shield windfury this and you’ve made a huge threat of 12 damage. It’s clearly busted.

    Firelands portal dealt 5 and left on average a 5/5. When you pick Rush and Divine Shield, you deal 6 and get a 6/6. Firelands Portal was insanely good, this is strictly better. That’s not even considering the versatility of this. 5/5

    This would be my first legendary to craft if I don’t get it in the packs (or any of the Quests are really broken when live)

    4.5/5. This card cannot compare to zilliax in that it lacks the versatility that zilliax has, but in decks that synergizes with it such as elemental decks, or battlecry shaman, this could be great.

    Great, another card for my Control Shudderwock deck. Though, this fits pretty much anywhere. 5/5

    Does anyone know if this will combo with Druid quest?

    I say at 7 mana this isn’t nearly as good as zilliax, but it’s still a great card

    Ladies and Gentlemen, We have an Elemental Zilliax! 😀

    Instantly 5 Stars, and A Hilarious card for Shudderwock.

    Well more bs for shaman to play around, and maybe will have the zilliax effect, not so sure since lack of lifesteal+Taunt if you go for the combo of rush+shield.

    Oooooooh new toy for battlecry shaman. Play this turn 9 after quest for big value. This can also help out when do a drop of Shudderwock since it could give him rush to have impact turn summoned.

    This card is insane. Sunwalker is okay (not played now but you would be happy getting it when getting a random card). This card coukld be +2/+1 for 1 mana more which is much better. Then u have flexibility and can rush with divine shild which is really awesome. Sees play in many decks. Slithly better then Zilliax imo
    5/5

    This card is really good, will definitely see play in the new highlander/one of decks if those are a thing, for 7 mana you can potentially do 6 damage to 2 minions, or 6 to one and be left with a 6/6.
    Needless to say that the rush option is what makes the card good, rush is often like a better version of taunt because you direct the attack. The only time taunt will be taken over rush is if you are against an empty board and you’re afraid of a Leroy to the face. Or a King Krush from the new Hunter legendary, which also comes down on 7.

    yip rip off genie suppose to be 3 wishes. 0/5.

    Wait, only two wishes?!

    What a rip-off of a Genie.

    4.5/5

    This is great for Shaman’s new quest. When it’s completed, you can get all 4 for 9-mana

      6-6 al’akir that cant go face? XD

      • Haki
        July 30, 2019 at 1:25 am

        Haha yeah pretty much, a defensive Al’Akir. Though it’s a 6/ 6 compared to Al’Akirs 3/ 5.

      • LunarBahamut
        July 30, 2019 at 2:58 am

        Not like an Al’Akir that can’t go face at all. Al’Akir is 8 mana for a 3/5, this would become a 6/6 for one less mana, and one mana is a lot.

        • Xix
          July 30, 2019 at 11:11 am

          It’s 9 mana if you count the hero power for double battle cry.

          • LunarBahamut
            July 31, 2019 at 5:32 am

            I didn’t count the hero power, but you’re right. I just generally tend to not count hero powers like that, or Rexxar and doctor booms mech generating, towards the cost of the card. But I suppose this is different because you are only adding a battlecry and not an entire card to your hand.

    I really like this card, it’s versatile, and will be great in the mid-to-late game. As others have said, I’m not sure exactly where it’ll fit, but I think it will be a common card on the ladder.

  25. THJester

    Now if only there was a class or deck archetype centered around battlecries this next expansion. Maybe a quest that centers around battlecries? And maybe a card that, I don’t know, copies the battlecry of every minion played prior.

    But yeah even past shudderwock shaman shenanigans, a 6/6 windfury rush is already a nuts card. The extra versatility of divine shield or taunt is just an added bonus for more situations. So many other classes can combo it with additional synergy. The new 1 mana card Embalming ritual in priest makes this card able to deal up to 18 damage to minions in one turn. Lightforged blessing turns this into 12 damages of lifesteal. Spirit of the shark gives it all 4 effects, and shadowstep/waggle pick allow you to play it a second time for 5 mana. On turn 10 warrior can play this, get rush with one other effect, and after doing damage can use Bloowsworn mercenary to summon a second one.

    This card isn’t Zilliax good, and 7 mana might be too steep for many decks, but it is a very good card. 4/5.

      For the embalming ritual, I’m wondering if the reborn Siamat would even keep it’s buffs since it’s not printed on the card originally, but given as a battlecry… The Bloodsworn combo should work though since it’s just summoning a copy of something already modified on the field. Reborns probably don’t work that way though.

      • THJester
        July 31, 2019 at 1:10 am

        You are completely right on the reborn not keeping the buffs. Still adjusting to the new mechanics.

    Auto Golden Craft.

    This will be in many decks!! 100% will be in a few meta decks.

    This seems like a decent card, with lots of versatility, but I can’t really think of any specific deck this would want to be played in – I think this wants to be played in a slower defensive deck, as it seems like a good removal option with rush, or a defensive option with taunt; but I believe the control decks have better class-card options that do similar things, so again i’m not really sure if this will find a home

  28. LorereaderPoCho
    July 29, 2019 at 8:18 pm

    Although not quite Zilliax prolific I think we’ll see a lot of this neutral legendary. Also I like that it’s a Djinn.

    A certain inclusion to any deck. Versatility is OP.

  30. Feitonghofei

    A really strong and flexible card that can easily fit into any control or value deck
    Rush + Windfury = walking fountain with more attack but no lifesteal, enough to kill two 5-cost minion
    Rush + Divine Shield = kill a 6-health minion and leave a 6/6/ body, simply a better blazecaller without precondition or a weaker Shirvallah without lifesteal
    Rush + Taunt = kill a mid-size minion and leave a taunt (usually 6/3 or 6/2) behind, still acceptable
    Taunt+ Divine Shield = Paladin’s A New Challenger, a big taunt stalling opponent’s attack
    The flexibility of having the above four options is enough to make it a strong play at turn 7

    • TheTallRonan
      July 29, 2019 at 8:15 pm

      Don’t forget — if your opponent ISN’T putting enough pressure, you can drop a 6/6 Divine Shield Windfury that they have to somehow deal with or promptly get smorked to death

      • Feitonghofei
        July 29, 2019 at 9:20 pm

        Absolutely. I focused on my four examples simply because they give instant impact to the board.

    • Spidermannerdlikeme

      You forgot windfury with divine shield or taunt

  31. Taznak

    Pretty powerful, very versatile. 5/5

  32. Art3mis

    Man Crupt the waters Synergy. Think Hero Power+This Card. Auto Include in battlecry shaman

  35. Spidermannerdlikeme
    July 29, 2019 at 7:16 pm

    But seriously I loved smashing face with a giant minion, it was so satisfying, haven’t seen a charge minion out of basic/classic besides King Krush

  36. Spidermannerdlikeme
    July 29, 2019 at 7:13 pm

    Why is charge no longer in any of the new expansions.? Charge was so much better than rush, 3/5 overall but I can’t think of any deck to put it in

    • Tuscarora87
      July 29, 2019 at 7:14 pm

      They don’t want us to go face. Sad.

    • Lanakias
      July 29, 2019 at 10:39 pm

      Because “Charge” is a strong text (perhaps the stronger of the game) and any card with change is good.. Even the bad ones. Aggro decks have 70% lethal with lerroy.. Mindrange hunter kill you with full charge board at the momment too.. Imagine this card to has charge.. Is a very strong text and they dont want to create another broken charge cards and in my opinion that is a good call..
