    One sided board wipe. If a slower paladin deck exists they will run this.

    I assume this will be best in a mildly dragon-themed deck to keep your big boys alive and where you want to reach the higher mana levels anyway. 4/5, tentatively.

    The 8 cost isn’t that bad considering what he does being a guaranteed removal of a big boy card and stays on board to potentially kill more. As an 8 cost he’s still open as a buff Target and there’s a few withing that range that could work. Also this is a guaranteed Victor from duel or some similar cards.

    This card should be buffed to have windfury at least to make it a good card. Right now its 3/5. So sad.

    To not repeat everyone else, 8 mana destroy a minion for a paladin that lefts a minion (that good enough for non-aggro deck) with possibility to do it again in following turns, that also has great synegy with heals.

    5/5 in libram deck for me.

    Only real downside is that card is terrible at killing lackey’s or other minions weaker than 3/3, but you have other cards to do that.

    You will include this in your decks if there isn’t anything better.

    This one might as well be an 8 mana 3/9 with battlecry “destroy a minion”, because chances are right after you kill the first minion you bump this guy into, your opponent is going to immediately remove him with a spell or by trading.

    Keep in mind that only when this minion ATTACKS an enemy minion does it set the enemy minion’s stats to 3/3. So when your opponent smacks some big bois into this, you’re not gonna end up with any favorable minion trades.

    Also, keep in mind that this card’s effect doesn’t get rid of effects like Divine Shield or Reborn. So even smacking this dude into something isn’t 100% guaranteed to remove it.

    Overall, this card is super lackluster. Compare it with the 8 mana Demon Hunter card Coilfang Warlord, which is essentially a 5/9 taunt with battlecry destroy a minion. Not only does it have taunt and a higher attack, but you can also run 2 copies of it in your deck. I’ll have to give this card a 2/5.

    Might see some play in Highlander decks though, simply because it’s a removal card for Paladin which normally struggles with removal options.

    Worse deathwing mad aspect against many enemy (they have same cost and health), better against a single big threat

    Eeh. this is just used to take down a Big Threat, or whenever you don’t have Shadow Word: Death or Ruin. I’m not the biggest fan with Turalyon, but you can surpise them off guard with Inner Fire, when they least respect it, if they ignore it as punishment. Other than that I’m pretty sceptical with Turalyon, but maybe Priests would actually love this card.

    3 Stars.

    Cool support for Duel! Paladin but outside of specific (read: Druid-heavy) metas I don’t think he’s gonna make more than one successful debuff+trade.

      Changing my review because it’s now confirmed he has Tenure. 5/5 Auto-include

    This is a 8 mana 3/9 destroy a minion that could destroy another minion if unanswered and so on. A bit slow but Pally knows how to stick a minion for several turns.

    The card is great. Better than a twisting nether in some cases. It can destroy 2 scrapyard collossas including the death rattle. Removes a maximum of 4 minions. Removing 2 big minions and leaving a 3/6 on board. Not bad at all.

    When played from hand, this is obviously a worse Natalie, but it’s clearly better when recruited or summoned in other ways. Will always win Duels

    So Turalyon was a Teacher in Scholomance before he became the hero of the Alliance? Or was he there all the time in the Hearthstone Universe? Defenetly an unexpected but really cool legendary!

    As for the power of the effect: This is extremly similar to Natalie Seline if you ask me. Turalyon however has 2 upsides: He doesnt need a big minion to be strong and he continuous thread. While Natalie Seline can threaten face better, Turalyon makes every big minion useless and with at least 9 Health remaining, he is pretty sticky against classes who have no big removal. Druid will hate this!
    After all, he is not crazy OP or anything, but a solid 4 Star card that will be played in some Decks (Paladin has Highlander and Pure Version for more restricted building too!) if the Meta allows it.

      Although I think you’re correct I wonder why so many people compare this to Natalie Seline for the simple reason that Natalie is a Priest card and this is Paladin. Paladin had no spell or battlecry before that could ensure minion destruction without having to use more than one card. I agree that this card is not exceptionally good but it fits a role Paladin didn’t have before which is basically guaranteed removal.

      • Bisalissy
        July 26, 2020 at 4:52 am

        This is also an important aspect! I think Natalie Seline would be a lot stronger in Paladin 😀

        But mentioning the guaranteed removal: There is another big downside compared to Natalie: She can bypass Taunt, Turalyon can’t. But this trait is actually shared with Libram of Justice, which also comes close to a guaranteed removal, but at the cost of health and weapon slot.

      Yeah true, this card might pose a serious threat to heavy Embiggen Druid decks. But that doesn’t mitigate the fact that this card costs 8 mana, meaning that you’d only be able to play this card after your Druid opponent has already built up a big heavy board with their embiggened minions and Strength in Numbers sidequest.

      You’d only be able to remove one big minion from your Druid opponent’s board, but your Druid opponent would probably have 2-3 other decently sized minions on board by turn 8, which could be used to make favorable trades against this card next turn.

      Keep in mind, that this minion only sets minions’ stats to 3/3 after attacking them. So when it is attacked itself, it doesn’t set minions to 3/3. So your opponent’s minions would only take 3 damage after trading into this.

      All in all, I’d say you’re better off just killing off your opponent in the early game than playing this card to boost your late game. You won’t have to deal with your Embiggen Druid opponent’s big fat minions if you don’t give them the time to play them.

    I’m preatty sure this card is very weak. It’s a worse Natalie seline. Very bad against aggro, good against control, but at least too situational to see any plays. The last of many bad legendaries for paladin :((

  16. DeadlyBlinke

    Kinda ok. Sticky health but again just one minion for 8 mana doesen’t counter deathrattles so silence would just be better. We will see if paladin can be playable competitively this expansion. The class desperately need some cheap card draw. Too early to rate this card but feels pretty mediocer

    This is basically posion but it only takes 3 damage when it attacks. This is awesome and an auto include in pure decks. 4 or 5/5

    • DeadlyBlinke
      July 26, 2020 at 1:51 am

      def not 5 maaaaybe 4 but more like a 3-3.5

      • Gingerninja
        July 26, 2020 at 6:22 pm

        Yeah I aggree, I saw people talk about how slow this is and how it can go through poison and divine shield but still pretty cool

    So this card means ” drop an 8 mana 3/9 stats minion and destroy a minion that hasent “Divine Shield”. Its ok card but i dont think this card is what Paladin need right now. The effect is not too strong and 8 mana is very slow. But is nice to have a 3/9 minion on the board and destroy some huge enemy minion. Paladin has few single removals.

      Seems I’m not the only one who misread the card.. Sorry but this card is much worse than that ._.

        July 26, 2020 at 1:28 am

        Okay at this point I feel the site is playing games with me, now it’s changed back to “this” 😀 Ignore everything I said lmao

    • Abolfazl282
      July 26, 2020 at 1:31 am

      actually it’s not a single target removal. in the most cases you can use it as a AOE i believe. just need a bunch of silverhand recruits and libram of wisdom and you can kill whatever you want.
      not an amazing card but not bad as well

  19. Thraben
    July 26, 2020 at 1:21 am

    Does this set the attack and health to 3 before it hits the minion? If not it’s trash.. If yes I love the desing and it’s so perfect for Paladin and it’s an awesome card, really nice fit to just about any non-aggro Paladin deck.

    • Thraben
      July 26, 2020 at 1:23 am

      Wait what it says “you”? As in when you attack a minion with a weapon? Why? Can’t it just apply to this minion…? Or this minion and you? Nvm… it’s trash Paladin legendary as always sigh.

      • Lanakias
        July 26, 2020 at 1:26 am

        Before the card attack i think it set the enemy minion at 3/3 stats and after it kill it instatly.

        • Thraben
          July 26, 2020 at 1:29 am

          Yeah the card said “whenever you attack” for a moment, either a mistranslation or I’m crazy..

    • Abolfazl282
      July 26, 2020 at 1:26 am

      it’s before the attack cause it says (whenever). like magehunter card for DH
