    on the one hand, this draws some comparisons to risky skipper; on the other, it’s nowhere near as good. I kind of think this probably should just deal 1 to all characters. whirlwind effects are really strong in enrage warrior, but the issue is a lot of the spells you’d play with this card would be pretty awkward to fit into a curve when you’re trying to go wide & buff up your board with Imbued Axe.

    I guess you could combo this with that new 2 spell that summons 1/2s and an Anima Extractor on board; that combo costs 5 mana and you get +4/4 to random minions in your hand. if you have an Imbued Axe equipped, that effectively nets you 3 2/4s (2 with taunt), a 2/5 anima extractor, and as mentioned the +4/4 in your hand. all in all spend 5 mana to get 8/17 stats on board and 4/4 value in hand. that’s an okay turn if you had no board before/are playing against something without much pressure. this combo has upside if you fire it 1 turn later with 6 mana; you’d get the manathirst (6) buff on those taunts for an addition 2/4 in stats total (so 10/21 stats) with an extra mana floating which I guess COULD be spend on a variety of things (like another Sunfury Champion to whirlwind again for another 4/4 in stats to hand minions.

    one last thought: Sunfury Champion + Anima Extractor + already equipped Imbued Axe + Embers of Strength + Light of the Phoenix (draws you 2 more cards for 0 mana at this point) is kind of a really insane turn 5. I would say that all in all, Sunfury Champion PROBABLY does see play and it’s PROBABLY really good in Enrage Warrior. maybe we’re all wrong and this is exactly as good as Skipper was in the current meta; I’m gonna hedge my bets and say it’ll make less of a splash but still see play. 4/5 but I could see this card being insanely good.
