    I love this card. Even if Totem Shaman ends up being bad, I love the fact that this is a battlecry, and you can repeat it as many times as you want with all the different interactions Shaman has to do exactly that. Between Brann, the Macaos and the 2 mana 1/4 legendary, Shaman already has all the tools needed to make it so their totems may have +6 or even +8 attack permanently. And THAT is pretty cool, and also powerful, because it makes it so the enemy is always put under incredible pressure to kill every totem all the time because of how dangerous they are. All in all, I think I’ll love experimenting with this bad boy, but its meta power is going to be decided by how good the other totem interaction cards are.

    Do I think this is an amazing card? No. Do I think it singlehandedly breathes life into the totem shaman archetype? No. Do I think it’s a decent standalone card? Yes.

    This isn’t pre-nerf Drekthar, But it also doesn’t require as much of you. It’s a 4 mana 5/4 which isn’t a big tempo loss and it gradually provides a trickle of value over the course of the game. Maybe you don’t throw this into any old random shaman deck, but if we get a few more decent totem cards for generic use I could easily see this finding its way into decks without the word “totem” in their name.

    Don’t sleep on this one. Perfect for even sham in Wild and just turning the button into a decent threat in some tempo deck (e.g. murloc sham’s amalgams are also totems) is nothing to scoff at.

    Between this and Bru’kan for grinding purposes, there is no choice really.
    It seems way too situational, so only deck it could fit in is some kind of aggro/midrange totem related one, which frankly speaking needs a looot of support

    This is already a good card with it’s stats alone.
    And just wait until you combo this with parrot and bolner, then you would have Shaman HP that summons 8/2 each turn. That’s win condition right there. Way too good, but also concerning.

    Looks okay to me, totems have usually been the smallest and least significant tribe in Hearthstone. However, this has the potential to be very oppressive in a theoretical totem-heavy deck. Stats are okay too, even if the minion itself is nothing to write home about. Plus makes Shaman’s basic Hero Power better in any case. I’d give it a 3/5 on grounds of having significant potential with the right support.

    This looks like it could well find a home in even shaman, and I’ll probably be playing more Wild next expac so I like to see it.

    I mean a permanent savage roar for totems is “cool” and all, but what totem synergy is there in Standard? If we had Totem Goliath an Splitting Axe, MAYBE I could see it, but even that still requires you hard drawing this card for your deck to be playable.

    another : you need to draw it or you deck is junk?

      with enough ‘you need to draw it to gain any benefits’ cards eventually such a deck will be good

    While flavor-wise makes some sense, this is very out of tune with everything else we’ve seen from Shaman so far this reveal season. Presumably some amount of totem synergy to come?

      It’s arguably decent with Shaman’s Hero Power alone. Would probably not warrant inclusion solely on those grounds, but that does power up those little totems significantly.

        Sure, I think it’ll be something you’re fine with generating, though I’m not sure what would generate this or how Shaman specifically would in Standard right now, I just don’t feel it will ever really warrant inclusion outside of a Totem deck. I’d give it 3/5 as of right now, though that’s being generous in a lean towards there probably being Totem synergies that we just haven’t seen yet, I was mainly just shocked this was the first Totem card we’ve seen for the set which feels backwards in my opinion.
