Tending Tauren Card Review

Good card in Token Druid, and if you’re specifically running the Treant strategy, you DEFINITELY want to play it. It’s like a miniature version of Cenarius. While the effects are weaker, it’s much better in a deck like that, simply because it comes 3 turns earlier.

What I like about it is flexibility. If you don’t have a board, you can create one. 3/4 + 2/2 + 2/2 for 6 mana might not seem scary, but remember what deck you put it in. Your opponent will absolutely have to clear it, because otherwise you drop 2x Savage Roar and deal 23 damage. More ways to create boards is always good in that deck, because right now you simply can re-flood it only a few times.

And if you already have a board, you can use it as a wide buff and a small body on top of that. This option seems a bit weaker, but it’s not a dead card even if you don’t need more minions.

Solid card, will definitely see play in Treant version, and possibly even in the regular version of Token Druid.

Card rating: 7/10

    Some really gross stuff is happening in the Gloop lab, that Tauren has 4 fingers! *barf*

    Now Druids will have a mini Cenarius to play around with. While Cenarius hasn’t seen play in a few years, it was a lot later of a play than an Aggro Token Druid would want to play. I would actually like to see a world where both the aggressive and current iterations of Token Druid exist at once since I like both personally.
    As far as this seeing play in either, I can see it at least in the current version, not really in the aggro version though. It is another way to both produce tokens and buff them and it can’t be summoned by Oaken Summons.

    7/8 worth of stats on a 6 mana minion or more, flexible as well. Seems good in arena and might bring viability to treant decks. 3/5

    Looks good in the treant deck, but the other choice is pretty weak.

    3.5/5

      sort of, treant ability is more likely the go to 9 times out of 10, but sometimes you are 4 points shy of lethal, and this guy can help with the other mode if needed.
