    big and scary and spell immunity is never bad. Best case scenario you kill your opponent almost immediately with this worst case (unless they go face in which case you were probably dead no matter what you did) they used their biggest scariest removal combo or they traded their entire board to kill it. This is pretty good

    I just don’t think people give enough credit for this card. I also don’t think comapring it to Soggoth is fair; unlike him, Tyrantus is a threat that needs to be answered, whereas soggoth is much less a priority to get rid of.

    This card is a unique type of threat with unique soft (taunt) and hard (kazakus, potion of poly, twisting nether, rogue plant etc.) counters. Of course you can just go on saying that a 10drop without immediate effect is weak, and you won’t really be wrong. But a 10-drop that threatens for 12 next turn and needs a specific type of counterplay (keep in mind that any taunt other than Soggoth can be removed easily) is a decent card that needs good deck and matchup knowledge to play around. Will it be played? i don’t think so, but not many Druid cards have been revealed up till now, so it could be.

    And worst case scenario, it’s a druid legendary that doesn’t make jade any stronger. That has to count for something, right?

      It is cuntered by most tier1 decks now and in the future. Devolve? Into hex? Frost nova domsayer? Kazakus? Ignore and go face by pirate (your dead by turn10 anyways…) you say it needs answer, but it can safely be ignored and you can go face.

      Again this rank25 community saying stupid things. Where would it be played? Druid is only Jade and maly, this is a bad card. Deal with it.

          Against aggro, you are dead before you play this card.
          Against jade, they trade 1 or 2 golem into this and they can make more while you cant make more of this.
          Against control, they dont care about taunt, they can nova/doomsayer, devolv, twisting nether or whatever they have to destroy this.

          Just warranting a specific response doesn’t make a card right if it’s not a threat in itself lol

      My issue isn’t that it dies to something easily. My issue is that it’s just too slow. Cards like Deathwing, Ravaging Ghoul, and Dr. Boom are all good because they do something the moment they enter the battlefield. Cards like Tyrantus, Ironfur Grizzly, War Golem, etc. have no IMMEDIATE impact on the board, and thus tend to be a waste of a turn.

        Dr. Boom doesn’t have an effect immediately as he enters a battlefield. I mean yeah, he has a battlecry, but it’s not like the battlecry does any more immediate than a bigger minion would.

        War golem and Ironfur grizzly are awful examples. These cards aren’t played because of their awfully bad statlines compared to mana. It’s like saying a 10 mana 1/1 wouldn’t see play solely because of its lack of immediate value.

        And Ironfur Grizzly DOES have an immediate effect (kinda). The opponent can’t attack other minions or your face at their turn, which comes right after.

    Look at this guy’s art. He’s supposed to be on the level of Deathwing, and we all know Deathwing could destroy this lizard. I thought he was a small raptor or something when I first saw him. He better be able to shoot lasers or something cool that we don’t know about because he does not look like the power level of a 10 drop 12 12.

      Technically, the card doesn’t look like the actual minion in WoW. If you Google him, he’s an intimidating figure. In fairness, the critter on the card is quite large (towering over the trees around him and with tiny little pterodactyls flying around him), so it’s more of an optical illusion. I’m sure if you met him in a dark alley your shorts would be sufficiently soiled.

      If we assume those Pteranodon-like animals are similar to actual Pteranodon size, this thing is truly massive. The typical Pteranodon was 5-6 meters, (like 18 or so feet) which makes this thing something in the area of 150 feet as a ballpark figure. That means this thing is almost as tall as the Leaning Tower of Pisa. while thats far from the largest manmade structure, thats certainly not laughable.

      Well, it could be on par if only stats are counted (strengh + hp). But you are forgeting that deathwing destroys EVERYTHING before entering the board, which is awsome lore and flavorwise. The strengh on deathwing are not his tailwhips nor health. It is ITS HIS FUCKING MAGIC AS HE IS A DRAGON ASPECT WITH STEROIDS.

      I have to agree with this, if you compare this Card to Deathwing looking at the Lore this Tyrantus is spitting Deathwing’s face.
      Slightly lower stats, 8 or 9 mana but still the effect of not being able to be targeted would still be a pretty solid Legendary and not totally destory the Lore behind these cards.

    For me, this card suffers from Vanilla Syndrome. It’s just a large card that doesn’t do anything the turn that it’s played. Which is especially a problem when you’re spending your entire turn playing it. Also, Priest has an evil one-two punch of Kabal Songstealer into Shadow Word: Death. It barely even works in Beast Druid…

    This card is way worse then deathwing. It can probably have impact turn 11-12.. or if you ramp like a maniac. But why would you want this instead of Onixiya. Oni is a 9 mana… 14-14 spreader between 8-8 and 1-1 tokens. Way bettet

      Let’s take this scenario….

      T5 lunar visions (maybe earlier than t5 due to ramp), draw Tyrantus.
      T6 Innervate, play Tyrantus.

      It’s not a giant stretch to do this. The question is can druid be so self focused on ramping and drawing in the meta that results. It might take some clever deck building to balance this.

    The funny thing is, it dies way too cleanly to big game hunter…also, board clears like equality+concencration, doom, twisting nether, kazakus potion, brawl, and possibly some more I’m forgetting.
    I’m hoping druid’s quest helps him out, or helps the astral communication style deck out, otherwise the lack of immediate board impact will be a problem. If it’s really OP there’s already a bunch of ways to deal with it people will just start using more.

      Kazakus potion can’t target him, he’s spellproof. The only option you have is bgh or hard board removal, which are expensive and hard to use combos. The card itself doesn’t do much immediately, but it can combo with Aviana, Thaurissan in Druid decks, it can evolve from an Onyxia in shaman…it’s clearly not the best card, but not the worst either

          The card is bad because a single random spell that you get from one card in the entire game can possibly remove this card from the board if you get lucky enough? Just do yourself a favor and stop playing the game. Find something else worth while to spend your time on.

            I looked up Infest, I didn’t know about that one, I admit I was wrong. But it won’t make infest hunter a good deck, although I played infest when I was like rank 25 and found it really fun.
            As for the other one, I never said you can’t discover as hunter, I said you can’t discover this card (Tyrantus). I don’t even know why people want to play this in hunter. Most player think, and I tend to agree, that hunter is going to play his quest and go full face (or at least play aggressively) this expansion. This giant is everything but aggressive.

      But with Reno rotating out I’m not sure whether Highlander decks will still be viable – they probably won’t be as popular; and it’s generally those decks that run Dirty Rat.

    If the meta slows down a bit this could be a great card in beast or ramp druid; anything with a big enough body that can’t be targeted is a pain in the bum to remove.

    … and if it survives 1 turn (or you’ve dropped Aviana > Kun in wild) you’ve got some options like Evolving Spores or Defender of Argus.

    I guess the dream scenario would be something like:
    Aviana > Kun > Tyrantus > Defender of Argus > Menagerie Warden x2 O_o

    I think it’s a great card if you manage to adapt it with taunt or windfury

    If you leave it without giving it any abilities it’s just a bad version of Deathwing

      I think is a good card but not op, because is a 10 mana cost with no immediate impact on the board .

        Your one of those people that just repeats youtube comments.

        The reason big cards with ‘no immediate effect’ suck is because they get hexed or removed before it can do anything. However with this card it cannot get hexed. So provided u can remove a taunt/ there isn’t one. This is just a slightly delayed 12 dmg to face plus a 12/12.

        Great card (providing you can get to the late game)

          Problem in this meta is that when you play a 10 mana no immeidate effect your prob just dead. No board control or heals in lategame are deadly situations.

          +dan You think can’t be targeted by hero spells and powers makes it immune to anything?
          Let me inform you that there are plenty of aoe board clears or minions that will kill it anyway. Unless it has some synnergy with druid quest I don’t see how this will be better than your average legendary.

    Veeeeery nice card, in Ya Shaarj Druid 🙂 would be nice if druid can somehow get big minions early , some kinda astral spell but in standard, nice addition to control heavy meta, also can be good in Jade Druid due to spell immunity , opponent takes down your jades with some board wipe and then this comes! 😀

          Actually, with the Adapt cards being released, Poisonous is going to become much more common, and having an Adapted murloc isn’t impossible.
