    Competes with Swordeater and Gan'arg in Rush Warrior and is likely not going to outclass them. Just generally I have trouble seeing this being played as long as those two are still in Standard, but I guess it gets a chance next year.

     

    I tried having fun once.

    It was awful.

    Meh seems bad. It's not the bad kind of handbuff, but it's completely overshadowed by Sword Eater and Imprisoned Gan'arg. Also bad in wild, which is to be expected.

    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.

    I don't think that this does enough to see play. The opportunity to scale well with weapon buffs is real, but that feels too vulnerable to weapon removal.

    This post is discussing the wild format.

    This will see play and make a new archetype. Lots of cheap weapon buff minions that will scale this out of control while this will also scale minions. 5/5.

    This would be much better if things like Upgrade! were still around.

    They had to print this card to make War Cache worse, because it was winning too many games ... for Mages running Deck of Lunacy LOL.

    Pretty good card in Arena, but it's not what constructed decks are looking for. Imprisoned Gan'arg is simply better.

    Arena > Wild > Standard

    Could see play in the future if a Pirate Warrior comes about. Early weapons for them usually matter and the extra attack is nice for an aggressive deck.

    Cute. But bad.

    Its never going to make you drop Imprisoned Gan'arg, and the effect is basically just a worst Ringmaster's Baton most of the time.

    Even if you play man-at-arms on 2 after this, its only marginally decent.

    It costs 1 mana, so it has that going for it. You still only get +1 attack to a random minion in your hand per turn, so it seems fairly slow.
