    I love this card: it’s a wonderful and fun way to build decks this way and makes it so no minion decks aren’t REALLY no minions deck. The consistency of this card is also great: if you have only 3 minions in your deck, this is like having 3 copies of each of them in your deck when it comes to consistency. The downside is that they cost 1 more mana than they would, which makes it a bit of a problem when it comes to playing these cards on curve, which you wouldn’t do anyway because 3 minions aren’t enough to make a curve reliable. The most obvious cards you can put in are very powerful legendaries or other big minions which can function as a finisher. Let me list a couple of combos: Renathal can be used in a no minion deck thanks to this (even though I don’t think there are enough good spells for a 40 card decks); Denathrius can also be used in such a deck because it seems to summon a lot of tokens and you will be able to find Denathrius very quickly, while also making it immune to Theotar because you can gain more Denathrius copies; any kind of wincon like the Jailer which can be useful in certain matchups but that can also be ignored against others; the new 4 mana legendary minion for DH which gives you Outcast cards is a great midgame value minion, one which could be used in many different situations; Jayce is probably one of the best wincons you can have, since you don’t have to put it in your hand early on like you would have to with Denathrius and you can also get 3 copies of it; the Illidari Inquisitor is also a good late game wincon, even though it isn’t as good as Jayce in that regard; you could also go for the 4 mana 5/4 minion which draws up to 5 cards, which is the best way to draw cards in aggro decks, which might be the way to go for this deck. The fun thing is that you can combine any of these combos in a almost infinite amount of possibilities: do you want 3 different wincons so that you can win against control comes hell or high water? Do you want two value cards and a wincon? Do you want a value card, a tempo card and a wincon? Perhaps only value and tempo cards? Maybe it’s best to go for tech cards, like weapon removal, wincons like Jayce and a value card for when you don’t have anymore cards in hand? The point is that it will be so fun to experiment with, but it’s too hard to say how good this will be in a vacuum: it might end up being too slow or just not worth playing a no minion deck and a bad weapon for. Can’t wait to try it out in the ladder though!

      Overall review of the class: I think the no-minion archetype might actually make it and be a good meta deck. You can include the artifact package, Fel spells and Jayce: paired up with this weapon, you can have a very powerful deck which has 3 finishers which can also be otherwise useful minions for the midgame thanks to the versatility of this weapon. Big Demon DH won’t be viable. There won’t be an outcast deck, but some of the outcast cards might see play in the aggro or the no-minion archetypes. Aggro DH has been good for the last couple of months while not being a standout by any means, and I think that it will stay so: a good deck to get to diamond, but not much further.

    Insanely strong in minionless Demon Hunter since that is clearly what they’re going for this expansion. You get to put 3 really strong minions that you may need in your deck while still triggering the “if your deck has no minions”

    So. Put the 3 best available minions against Aggro, Combo and Control in your deck to get (if you can draw all of the Souls) 3 copies of the most needed of the 3… Very nice!

    This card seems sick. Protects your minions from Patchwerk, Mutanus, Theotar. Gives you more flexibility because you can discover any of the three minions. Seems like a really cool card!
