    Its a giant that can be reduced to 0 fairly quickly with stuff like Expendable Performers.

    Not quite Corridor Creeper, but very close to it, and in my opinion just about as broken. We'll have to see how consistent this can be dropped down, because its not altogether impossible to have this by turn 5, or completely reduced to 0 after a skull draw.

    Very easy to get this to 0 mana, can be copied with Felosophy, and will be a problem

    hmmm DH demon giant.

    Very good token support, but  token DH is not good right now. Not sure how this fits to existing archetypes, the minions don't die fast enough for this to be dropped early. Maybe aggro DH if it makes a comback.

    The best token payoff Demon Hunter has yet received. This could be a problem. If Demon Hunter can discount it quickly enough, there's nothing stopping them from playing a Felosophy or two, slamming down two big bodies, then following up with Battleground Battlemaster like a souped-up Flesh Giant Warlock. Keep your eyes on this one. Maybe not this meta, but eventually we will see it in a top-Tier deck.

    I have spoken.

    Yes it does. Unless the description reads 'while in your hand' its going to track even if you discover this card out of thin air

    Pretty solid Token support but I still don't believe in that deck. Gonna have to see what the DH Hero card is all about.

    I tried having fun once.

    It was awful.

    Very solid token DH card, will see play even if its just in a normal aggro DH deck. We know from Flesh Giant and pretty much every giant will see play.

    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.

    Will this be the card that finally makes Token DH a real deck? I doubt it, but at some point you gotta admire their perseverance to make it and Big Demon DH happen.

    This looks like an early nerf target*. Even if a full Token DH deck doesn't come together, this could easily find its way into a Deathrattle DH thanks to how sticky those deathrattle chains can make their boards. On their own, Renowned Performer is a three mana discount on this, and Devouring Ectoplasm is a two mana reduction, and both of those see tons of play in Deathrattle DH.

    * Not literally calling for a nerf before it's even launched - I just think this looks like the kind of card that will get out of hand quickly and make for polarized match-ups.

    Solid card ! Kinda scary tough how fast you could bring this down to 0 Mana

    I was thinking it would be problematic too, but more in regards to token decks - as 13 illiaries aren't that hard to kill in a game - and the resulting (0) mana pair of Ur'zul Giant would act as a finishers

    Well, this is our first 13 mana card, so shamans can now evolve Mountain Giants into Ur'zul Giants. This Giant will be insane in Duels though so wouldn't be surprised if it's banned. Very nice support for token DH, but we need more tokens

    TREMBLE before.... the most legendary dragon that ever existed!

    ...but let's face it, control is dead 😭💔

    So now we have a 13 mana giant. More expensive than anything other than Molten Giant and Shirvallah, the Tiger. It shouldn't be hard to get this guy down to 0 mana.

    Overrated and will be part of the meme token DH build

    This ain't no place for a hero

    Pretty good payoff for the token build, now the deck just needs something to make the tokens more impactful.

    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)
    Wins per class (18/11/21): DH-180; Druid-931Hunter-910; Mage-1016; Paladin-1088; Priest-695; Rogue-938; Shaman-1024; Warlock-821; Warrior-847

    Arena: Takes too long in most games to really benefit from the discount. However, at some point this is still playable for relatively cheap, so definitely decent.

    Constructed: I'm not convinced Token DH is going to be any good and that is the main deck Ur'zul Giant would fit in.

    Arena > Wild > Standard
