    Good One - Could remove 1 or 2 minions with a decent amount of healing. Not sure you realy gonna need this in the upcoming meta tough.

    This card is just... quite bad? Control paladin is not a thing, which is the only kind of deck that would want a card like this. I could never see myself running this over actually good paladin weapons like Underlight Angling Rod, Hammer of the Naaru or even Truesilver Champion. Also, what's the deal with all the Paladin weapons? First Seedcloud Buckler, then Prismatic Jewel Kit, now this. Paladin just doesn't have that many deck slots available for weapon, so when they print crappy weapons like this it just feels like it's taking the place of a good card instead.

    I don't want to call it bad yet, but it seems sort of redundant.

    Libram Paladin already has a better version of this and what other Control Paladin deck would there be?

    I tried having fun once.

    It was awful.

    Its so baffling how weak this card actually appears that Im doubting myself for giving this a bad rating.

    Maybe its the presumptive winner of this expansions 'Lady Liadrin' Award.

    Or maybe its exactly what it looks like: shite on a stick.

    Not optimistic about this card.

    It looks like an anti aggro weapon of pally but competes with so many other weapon cards in paladin. That plus the massive downside of not being able to hit face.

    If big pally gets some love, can be a good early tool against aggro.

    By The Holy Light!

    Why is the attacking heroes restriction on this card? How often does Paladin buff up a weapon so large that it threatens lethal? I don't get this at all. I'm sure I'll open two of them.

    Unfortunately, common sense isn't as common as it should be.

    Unless your deck has some healing synergy I don't see why you'd ever want to play this over Underlight Angling Rod.

    This is clearly a control weapon and control decks don't usually want to hit face regardless, so not going face is not so much a massive downside as it is a slight inconvenience.

    That being said, since this weapon is going towards board control, it's more of a "Your hero has a pseudo Divine Shield while attacking", which isn't great when compared to, for example, generating two murlocs.

    Rating cards on coolness factor rather than predicting power because I like screwing up rating averages (and because I suck at predicting real power levels, but we'll ignore that LUL)

    Looks like a solid board control tool. Remove 2 minions and heal up some. Might make some weapon buffs worth running?

    It isn't a bad card, just not terribly useful. I am pretty sure there aren't any paladin decks being held back by the lack of a decent mid-game removal card.

    That Can't Attack Heroes is what kills this card, especially only for +1 attack over Aldrachi Warblades.

    IF there is going to be some weapon buff, this would be pretty solid.  Other than that I think it is a little meh

    Doesn't have a whole lot going for it. Would rather play Underlight Angling Rod. Also, not sure the 'Can't attack heroes' text is even needed.

    I think it's pretty good, you can easily fit this in a midrange paladin deck. What would be cooler is that there was a consistant way to gain attack to better use the lifesteal.

    I'd rather try and discount Libram of JudgementBADCARDNAME as that can go face if needed. However if there are healing synergies maybe this can make the cut as a faster way to trigger them.

    Wow what a peace of hot garbage. Basicly budget Truesilver Champion that cant go face. This is 100% made for a control deck, BUT i feel like Libram of Judgment is a card you rather use instead of Lightbringer's Hammer

    Yeh this is just dust. Maybe arena card at best.

    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.
