    Another great card for Evenlock! I'm getting excited for this!

    More support for Handlock, together with the previous reveal. Not sure how good this will be because it's just a pile of stats (only 6 health though) with no immediate effect on board, but cheating it out before turn 6 could potentially win the game.

    This isn't enough to by itself to justify playing a handlock deck. It's more of a nice addition to an already existing deck.

    If a handlock deck becomes playable, this will probably be a part of it. But this won't be enough by itself to make handlock a thing.

    Carrion, my wayward grub.

    Its your third Mountain Giant. That alone suffices as a review for this card.

    Outside of being cheated out its kinda bad honestly, but not too bad. 8/6 for 6 is still alright. Just dont expect to see anyone paying 6 mana to get this down anytime soon.

    I don't get why they would print something this pointless and boring. It doesn't have enough health to really slow down or pressure any tempo deck while you're tapping yourself to death.

     

    Why do they hate Warlocks so much?

    I tried having fun once.

    It was awful.

    yes except if you are on coin you tap on 2 tap on 3 have 1 mana remaning to play this guy, which is somewhat of a highroll (you need to draw him in first 9 cards (10th card is coin)) but pretty good

    We don't know if handlock will be a thing, but if it is, Anetheron will see play.

     

    By the way, is a boring designed card, the other legendary class minions looks fresher.

    By The Holy Light!

    Kinda Meh ... sure 6 Mana 6/8 is not that bad - i guess this is decent if it gets cheated out early on but on it`s own still Meh ... 

    If some sort of Handlock becomes a thing in the upcoming meta this surely will find a place in it.

    Honestly, how hard is it to play control lock and NOT have a full hand?

    This card is good, but the effect doesn't feel legendary. It'll see play if demon seed or handlock are meta.

    Didn't even think of Felosophy, nice.
    Also warlock has a lock of support for demons as different than elementals.

    Ok sure, handlock it is then.

    But really, that's the only deck this legendary will fit in. I understand there's some Felosophy shenanigans, which is cool, but Tickatus would always be a better target. 

    Sad to see legendries with such lackluster effects 😟

    Not to hard to get out early and decent res target for things like Kanrethad Prime.

    Not flashy but definitely still good.

    Kind of disappointed that it's 8/6 rather than a 8/8, but the real thing that holds him back is that he's a Legendary and not a Epic, so you only have one copy in the deck. Still going to be a solid inclusion in Control Warlock decks.

    Compare this to the DH 6/6 with Rush (Bladed Lady?)

    This is a quite dissapointing card, but still decent i guess? Honestly i dont see how this is a legendary effect, considering Bladed Lady is similar and has rush. Not only that but Mountain Giant and Flesh Giant do it's job WAY better, and those are no legendaries.

    I kinda feel like it was supposed to be 6/8 with taunt. If that was the case then Anetheron would be a lot better.

    The only deck i see this played it is this handlock deck they are trying to push, and in wild it fits well in EVEN-lock.

    Still kinda dissapointing that Anetheron is so bad considering he is so important to Kurtras AshfallenBADCARDNAMEs lore/story. This common "legendary" is such a dissapointment... I feel bad for whoever unpacks this. That being sad i'm not 100% sure it's going to be my first legendary, cuz i'm unlucky most of the time. :P

    RNG is only fun as long as there is a 50/50 chance of getting something really good or trash level of bad. If RNG always results in something good, then it's not fun.

    I think this helps to put handlock in a playable space. It won't be for every deck and situation, but I think it  does enable some really big stat turns  around 3-5 (depending on who has the coin).

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