what? That's like...giga-OP. It's basically 3-mana to kill a minion while setting up future or immediate plays. Pretty sure this pushes LIbram PAlly to the top again (Mage matchups don't count)
I tried having fun once.
It was awful.
This is good. Like really really good. It leaves an enemy minion broken at 1/1, AND buffs something in your hand.
handbuff AND destroys a minion for 3 mana? this looks INSANE. It's a better [Hearthstone Card (Assasinate) Not Found] kind of card, and it has a GIANT upside. Righteous Defense seems like a solid inclusion in Handbuff Paladin AND Libram Paladin! Of course Righteous Defense completely relies on the ability to actually play a game of hearthstone, because it's useless against solitaire decks.
And in wild it will 100% see play in Handbuff Paladin. Hello Darkglare warlock, nice Flesh Giant or Molten Giant. Hope you don't mind me taking those giants stats and handbuffing a big charge minion or something with them. :)
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.
Its good in paladin mirrors, but in nearly everywhere else its just bad. There's no reason not to just play Libram of Justice if you need to remove something, and this card costs 3 mana, which means 90% of the time you'll just buff something you can't immediately play or are we actually entertaining the thought of keeping low cost minions in hand just so this card will swing board?
The best chance this card has is via a discover, because its not a bad card in its own right, but in a class that has cheaper removals, needs to play tempo on curve, and whose minions are usually going to be decently stated anyway, where does this card fit in? Not to mention that most decks currently aren't tempo, and this card is an active detriment against the hated quest mage.
This makes me so mad...
This seems pretty damn good. You could hit a giant with this, and suddenly you have a huge minion in your hand.
