    Battlegrounds card pog.

     

    Outside of that this feels like it could be a legit win condition in certain types of decks. Maybe some really funky Stealth Rogue pops up that uses this for some truly degenerate lethals, or maybe you just run it at 1 in any deck that regularly summons big minions? It literally is "double the attack of two minions", that has to do something despicable.

    I tried having fun once.

    It was awful.

    Looks underwhelming at first, but aggro decks might just want to run this as the top end of their curve. This can represent a lot of burst damage including a solid body. It's either that or this is too much of a win more card and thus, won't see any play. At the very least, this card will result in many surprise lethals in Arena.

    Arena > Wild > Standard

    Not sure how I feel about this card. Being able to give 2 minions Windfury could be busted. Aggro decks can make use of this my hitting face, trading and giving the next minion in the line Windfury to repeat until the last minion hits face twice. This screams Battlegrounds inclusion also.

    This could be a nasty finisher. Giving anything windfury is powerful. 2 things could be game ending.  Probably an aggressive finisher for sure.

    Stealth rogue or bust. Basically useless outside of it,

    Occasionally your opponent may fancy themselves and let 2 minions on board for you to take advantage of the windfury. But really, in most cases if you have 2 minions on board you'll likely be winning anyway.

    I'll say one thing though. This coming after a Burrowing Scorpid on 4. Your opponent might as well just concede.

    Might be a sleeper finisher in decks like divine shield paladin

    I see this as the top end of an aggro deck. You can set it up for the  most advantageous double face hits. If you are really clever you can even use it for wide boards to do double duty as hitting face and trading. Even running it in a deck that only gets one or two big minions out  can get some good value off this card. I think it will see play in several styles.

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

    I am really liking this.  Immediately I went to Odd Paladin.  Swing first to your opponent's face, then hit the minion on the board.  NO worries because you'll get two more that look just like them. 

    In standard, Elemental Shaman will make a lot of fun stuff happen with this.  Pirate Warrior will make use of this on the finishing turn for swings to the face and suddenly the Southsea Deckhand is much more scary.  Hunter... pick a couple of beasts to stick between. 

    I know I am being myopic about this, but if you have a board, you just stick this between a couple of minions and go crazy for one turn

    That works as a finisher in Any aggro deck.

    Fantastic finisher, and at 5 mana, you could easily toss another buff in there (like Rockbiter Weapon or Cold Blood).

    Really good, if you have 2 five attack minions this can lead into 20 damage, to give an example.
    Nice card.

    This can very well be a sleeper card - no one realy will expect this card so this can put in a lot of damage because 2 Windfury Minions can cause a lot of damage - this could could surprise us as an MVP :)

    Dream finisher if you already have some minions on board.

    Just Leeroy and this is 12 burst.

    In aggro is going to be really annoying... but if you're on 10 mana being aggro, something went wrong.

    Could be tasty off Jandice or the Tiny Toys. Good, but it's a win more card, and it'll be underplayed.

    Seems like a bit of a win more card to me, but could be broken given certain boards.

    This card will be a huge surprise in a lot of Standard games. All out of a sudden, lethal damage dealt to opponent.

    Put this between 2 big minions, and it's probably GG unless they have a taunt wall up. Good chance to win even if one of the attacks has to smash through a taunt.
