Wickerflame Burnbristle Card

Wickerflame Burnbristle is a 3 Mana Cost Legendary Paladin Minion card from the Mean Streets of Gadgetzan set!

Card Text

Taunt, Divine Shield, Lifesteal

Flavor Text

Wickerflame spent years as a recruit for the Goons, never making the big-time because he always fired his chest-cannon too slowly. "Hey," he thought, "maybe if I keep my beard lit on fire, I can do this faster." BOOM, promoted.

Wickerflame Burnbristle Additional Information

  • Card Change (8/8/17): Wickerflame Burnbristle read: “Taunt. Divine Shield. Damage dealt by this minion also heals your hero.” and now reads: “Taunt, Divine Shield, Lifesteal“.
    • The change was made due to the addition of the Lifesteal keyword being added in Knights of the Frozen Throne.

    I’ve been trying to build a Midrange Djinn Paladin for a period of time. Upon the release, this guy can get along with the deck really well. Even though I’m not working on hand-buff mechanic, but just a raw Wickerflame Burnbristle is enough to be a good annoying threat for my opponents. He is very sticky. Combine him with Redemption, very fun.

    There is so much potential in this card. So many cards are going to be released in this expansion that will buff cards in your hand, so immediately this card will be a target for the buffs. Also the fact that Paladins have the best buff cards, this card may seem insane, but priests will find ways to remove this card. Otherwise, it’s really good early and late game. It’s pretty good blizzard

    You guys are forgetting the plus to creature in hand effects. I am sure there will be times he hits the board over curve and then you can buff.

      “Damage dealt BY this minion also heals your hero.”

      Enfases on BY, not TO this minion.

      So it heals your hero everytime it attacks, not anytime it’s attacked.

        If a minion attacks it, then it is dealing damage to that minion, so it will heal your hero if it’s attacked by a minion. But, if it’s removed by a spell then it won’t heal

    “Damage dealt by this minion also heals your hero.”

    So the wording is different, but is the effect at all different from Mistress of Pain?

    I don’t think playing a sub-par statted card is worth this okay ability. Paladin has plenty of healing options right now, so why does it need this? Even once standard rotates, it’ll still have Forbidden healing and Ivory Knight. I mean, think about it: It’s Annoy-o-Tron, which was already just an okay card, with 1 more attack for 1 more mana and an okay ability. Maybe that makes the card okay, but it seems way too weak of a play when Pally has so much elsle it can do. IMO, probably the worst Pally legend.

      I kinda agree. The stats seem waaaay too low. Mage just kills it with ping and Mana Wyrm or Arcane blast. Every Shaman threat just tears through it. Dragon Priest is gonna be able to just take it, assuming their 1 mana 2/3, 2 mana 2/4 and 3 mana 3/8 (stat wise anyway) won’t handle it on their own. It wants to be anti-aggro, but 2/2 is way too weak, even with divine shield. The only way I can see it being useful is as a giant theat + heal if you can get buffs on it. But it’s still probably not gonna be safe from a fireball, or a Soulfire and a 1 drop, much less a Hex. At least Annoy-O-Tron had the Mech tag so you could abuse that synergy back in the Naxx+GVG era of AggroStone.

        Agreed, but perhaps a new look with the new buff cards added within the last few days, even at 3/3 with the 1/1 buff played down before it on turn 2 makes it significantly better, or even just saving it for a later tempo play and letting the buffs stack on it, a 3 mana 5/5 or 6/6 tirion is preeety good

    I think this card is a good 3 drop which is intended to fight against aggro decks , really good against Hunter and shaman , maybe this card Will see Play in a midrange pally with blessing of kings for a potential 6 heal on turn 4 , i defenitely gonna use this card for a potential early heal and is better than an acolite of pain in many cases. so, i think blizzard is trying to provide good early game and healing against aggro decks cause pally has a lot of late game potential

    I guess the idea of the card is to buff it with like kings or something like that, but on it’s own it’s a 3 mana taunt ds 2/2 mistress of pain, and was mistress of pain used at all? no it wasn’t. I don’t think the card is good, some people will probably make decks designed around it in form of a “meme deck” but that’s all I can say about this card

    I think this card have good sinergies with other paladin cards in order to heal your hero a lot.
