    One of the first cards getting nerfed. Trust me.

    This looks like a good card. Combos have already been spelled out by others, so I have nothing more to add. 4/5

      I said that even before they started to reveal any cards, that rush warrior will be a meta deck. This puts it in a really good spot!
      Iam currently laddering with a Version with nearly no rotating cards and it feels so good!!! Iam really happy!
      With Spirit of the Rhino your Akali or Crowley will not lose any health. This is really insane card!
      Turn 1 Town Crier, than playing into Spirit at about turn 3/4/5, than Rabid Worgen or coining a Militia Commander + Sweeping Strikes = benefit.
      This abselutely broken!

    This is broken what the hell would you do if tagged Akali with this draw 3 rush give them all +5/5 this card is a beast. Hell use this on Crowley for a triple kill and it’s a pain. Heck you could use this on batterhead to more efficiently board clear……..uh oh that’s not good this on batterhead after first turn would be able to pull off what druid did with gonk. Just run a few cards like Leroy to put crappy minions on opponents side.

      That’s actually a sick combo that might make Akali more viable. I really like this.

      It pairs super nicely with Amani Berserker and Zilliax. Could be really nice with that 8 mana 3/12 too because you can more or less guarantee board clears with it now.

      solid 4/5 from me and confirmed warrior is the class to look out for this meta with multiple viable decks.

        The top cards to work with this are Zilliax, Akali, Batterhead, Crowley, and Linecracker. Btw Linecracker with this horrifies me that’s an immediate removal Target or your dead.

          I think the fact that there are multiple targets for this card makes it good. Warrior is shaping up to be really strong.

            Warrior seems to be the class focussed more on late game smashing power now using rush cards for trades to keep enemy board presence down. Also with a focus towards high cost minions it makes it dangerous to play hecklebot against a warrior.

    Yeah this is hella dangerous, any Rush or Overkill Minion will raise a lot of hell with this.
