    I mean, it sounds decent, but singular big taunts usually are too vuulnerable to targeted removal. There's a reason Earth Elemental isn't being played even at 2 Overload. Not to mention this is a horrible card when you can't activate it. Even Warlock has better options at this point.

    I tried having fun once.

    It was awful.

    I'm happy either way. Either aggro won't be prevalent and thus, this card won't be needed. Or aggro will be prevalent and this card is there to shut them down. Love it!

    Can be used in quest warlock to protect your face, you are the only one allowed to deal damage to your face.

    This is just a better Hooked Reaver, but harder to activate yourself.

    Wish the taunt was baseline. It's okay but probably not enough without the buff.

    Its a good card, great if you're warlock.

    Don't look down on it just because its not easily triggered. Even as a 4/6 taunt for 5, is there really a problem? That it blocks Trampling Rhino is already a decent result in my opinion.

    That's a looooot of stats, might end up being teched into some decks against aggro.

    The base stats and cost are pretty decent. If you are facing a deck where turn 5 needs the  taunt, those extra stats will be nice and you will probably hit the health requirement. Pretty good card to include in controlling decks.

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

    I'm getting self hurt Priest and Warlock vibes for this one.

    Aggro has been very agressive lately so this seems like a nice tool for Control decks if needed.

    Nice big taunt for when you need it, decent size taunt for when you don't.

    May or may not see play.  Big minions like this are just a tad too high costed to be universally used like tar creeper, and the condition at being half life or less may not be as easy to gimmick, even in warlock, as you might expect.

    Warlock card in disguise, and will constantly pop up here and there in Control decks.

    A nice control tool, amazing arena card, but if you need to play it in arena it means you're behind 50% of the time.

    It's Hurt Warlock support.

    Good in certain conditions, probably worth experimenting in Warlock and Shadow Priest.

    If you play this on curve for the bonus you're dead anyway. Pass.

    I feel like a 6/10 Taunt when you are low on health might just save your ass.
