I mean...2-mana 3/4 is good, but there is only one turn 1 weapon currently available (and the occasional coin into Baton) so I doubt this will see any play outside of Arena.
If it had Rush it would be worth consideration, but Warrior isn't in need of stat balls...at least not for 2-mana.
I tried having fun once.
It was awful.
Seems good, warrior does need a good weapon to make use of it though. Sure you have Sword Eater that comes out a bit late for this card. The only weapons you can play on turn 1 so far are Whetstone Hatchet and Spiked Wheel. Man-at-Arms seems good, but feels too slow at the same time. I dont think this sees play, especially considering Rush Warrior is already quite decent and doesn't need Man-at-Arms.
In wild it's still quite bad. The only warrior decks that are really good in wild (As far as i know) are ODD Warrior and Pirate Warrior. Both don't want Man-at-Arms.
RNG is only fun, as long as there is a 50/50 chance of getting something good or bad. If RNG always results in something good, it's not fun.
If only this was a pirate, it would maybe reach playable in pirate warrior. As it stands, a 2 mana 3/4 with no other effects is strong, but perhaps not strong enough to stand against other decks, especially when getting it out on turn 2 is so hard.
This post is discussing the wild format.
Sort of meh, but goes well with the new 1 cost 1/4 weapon.
Only good if if you're running Whetstone Hatchet and finding them on turns 1 and 2. So no.

This clearly incentivizes you to play a tempo deck, but in Wild there is Pirate Warrior that has no need for this, and in Standard I don't think I've seen a single attempt at tempo Warrior since Forged in the Barrens and this minion is not going to change that. In Arena this is also average at best.
Arena > Wild > Standard
Really wishing this was a Pirate. That's the only warrior that has wanted a weapon into minions early. This not being one, I don't know if this make the cut.

We've gone past the time where a 2 mana 3/4 can just win you the game. On top of the fact that you'll likely need to run a 1 mana weapon like Whetstone Hatchet just to get the best out of this card, my opinion is that this will simply never make it.
They clearly intended this to go along with Whetstone Hatchet. That card doesn't look great, so neither does this.
