Admittedly, I kinda just looked at what art I had previously saved. I did however think a gladiator makes sense. They could face all kinds of creatures in the arena. Wild beasts, smaller drakes, perhaps even untamable elementals and low-level demons, or pirates who have been given an opportunity to fight for their freedom. All to entertain the masses. I do agree the current art is a bit too undead, so I'll look for something more fitting.
I may have underestimated how easy it is to play multiple minion types. Should I remove the initial 1 damage on the battlecry?
Animal Caretaker I also a nice card, but I'm afraid the large requirement on the battlecry makes it a little less likeable. It's a big hit-or-miss.
I don't like the second version of Marine Biologist either, because it could still work fine in a deck with only a single of the three types. I do very much like its third version.
Naga + Murloc seems like a tough combo, since Naga are very spell-centered while generally you'd want to have as many Murlocs(=minions) in your deck as possible.
I'll bump up the Zealous Zoologist to 3/3/3; hopefully that's good?
MrRhapsody - I agree with AeroJulwin: the condition seems easy for a 3/3/3 with an upgraded Blizzard effect, especially when Flurry (Rank 1) exists in the same Year and is used in basically every deck. It's a neat idea, though, with interesting art.
Neoguli - Seems good to go. I didn't think it needed to be more wordy, but if other people prefer it that's fine.
BloodMefist - I like the idea of the Bronzescale, but it seems a little wonky right now. It's more interesting than the Warrior card, too; I would continue to explore it.
Wailor - The Epic version of Marine Biologist is interesting, but I don't know how practical it is to have all three of those types in your deck simultaneously. The Rare version seems more likely to be used, in my opinion; I'd go with that one.
BasilAnguis - The weapon card is neat, but it's not okay for this comp. Class Trainer is better, certainly, but some will frown on a "one time effect" on a card you could run multiples of, if-only because the second copy is kind of useless. Your Legendary is the best option, so I'd go with that one (after you give them a name).
Arkasaur - Gift of N'Zoth is cool; I like that one more. Grim Incantations is too niche in my opinion.
AeroJulwin - I like the idea of the Gladiator who gets better based on how many minion types they've defeated/sparred with. I don't feel it's well represented, unfortunately, but maybe it's the art that's messing with the message. I agree with trying to find another image.
Demonxz95 - Animal Caretaker seems like a win-more scenario: if you manage to fulfill the condition you're likely winning the board already. I agree with the others in-that Tisha's combination with certain buffs could be a problem.
If you have the time, you should totally check out our weekly Hearthstone card design competitions! :D
@AeroJulwin About the rare version of the Marine Biologist, I was assuming he would only show you two options if you run two types, or simply draw a card if you only run one. Thus, you can use it in a mono type deck, but you'd lose flexibility. I think it's best suited for a mono type deck that runs one (or both) of the other types, like a Naga deck with Slimescale Diver and a Colossal Beast or (in Wild) a Murloc deck with Gentle Megasaur. This way, you can always get your tech/finisher cards, while still making sure the Battlecry always does something.
I also like the change of not having an initial 1 damage.

Right, not sure what I was thinking. Both are good options then, but I see the Rare version doing better. It makes for more interesting deckbuilding.
Not that mage needed the help with quest line completion, but having minions to interact with is better than playing solitaire I feel
Tisha Darkblight seems to be the more favored of my two cards. I have bumped it from a 3 mana 2/3 to a 4 mana 3/4.
Thermal Shocker is definitely my favorite of the two cards, although I think I agree about the condition being quite easy for a strong effect. It doesn't seem too egregiously strong compared to Lightmaw Netherdrake, but it's definitely strong.
Showmaster Thisley seems easy to abuse, especially at only 5 mana, but I do like the idea you have.
If you haven't already, you have less than a day to submit!
Good luck to the finalists!
Congratulations to Chegwin!
