    Seems like solid Big Paladin support. An AoE you can set up for, with possible massive healing? Only downside is that 2 damage might just be way too little this late in the game.

    Wish this was in Priest. I'm okay with it.

     

    Yeah we are back to playing the game of ... Can an 8 drop be viable? I don't think so but I hope so. I really don't want to be sad again for the millionth time seeing cards like this be immediately obsolete just because cost..... It's very likely to happen ofc >: /

    This just looks awful tbh. The healing effect doesn't synergize with any of the Equality cards, Conescration for 8-mana is weak and there is no dragon synergy currently.

    Idk what the point of this is.

    I tried having fun once.

    It was awful.

    Well, this is a nice dragon to resurrect with N'Zoth, God of the Deep but if we want to see it more often, we'd need additional support

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

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

    Another Big minion for Paladin, it's essentially Primordial Drake without the Taunt the first turn you play it (even though it doesn't hit your minions and does hit the enemy's face), then a better Baron Geddon from then on out until your opponent removes it. I don't know how viable Big Paladin will be, but this could be good enough to find spots in other Midrange Paladin decks (Redscale Dragontamer is still in Standard...) if those ever become a thing. Very strong card.

    I have spoken.

    Even though that conditions are not the easiest to meet on this one, I really hope that it will have its niche. It has been some time since we have seen big dragon being played for something more than face damage.

    8 mana is the biggest downside to this card.

    It needs a specific deck but really good against decks that want to go wide. Moreso if this can be cheated early.

    The heal also makes this a pseudo taunt against aggressive decks.

    The Honorable Kill is something awesome, but a Baron Geddon that only hits your opponent?  Sign me up right now!!  AT the very least, it's a Consecration with legs

    WOW! Dreadlord that deals 1 more and can heal you. This is insane, especially when rezzed with N'Zoth!

    Consecration that can also heal your hero on a HUGE body, AND it's a dragon. So that means obvious N'Zoth, God of the Deep synergy, and BIG Paladin synergy thanks to Vanndar Stormpike. Brasswing is quite slow, but once it hits the field it's basicly game over for board based aggro/midrange decks that use tokens. If you play Brasswing against a board of 2/2s, it's a board clear on top of a Reno Jackson. Also it says "ALL enemies", so it includes FACE. 

    Also something to remember is that Redscale Dragontamer is in standard so you could tutor it in paladin decks that don't run Vanndar Stormpike. But regardless, i still feel like Vanndar Stormpike on turn 4 into a topdeck 5 cost Brasswing is one of the best possible "openers" for BIG paladin against aggro. ("opener(s)" more like: "Furious Aggro player smashing the concede button in absolute rage".)

    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 love dragons. But this one is just not good enough. Because it'll never stick, and even if it does it's not really doing much to win you the game. You can't even guarantee the heal with this.

    Its basically 8 mana Consecration. Even if you cheat it out with Vanndar, its still 5 mana consecration. There's simply better cards you'd much rather have in your hand honestly.

    Brasswing is easy to dismiss as an expensive Consecration that won't net you much value, but I wouldn't count it out. Libram of Wisdom can be a very effective tool for lining up Honorable Kills for Brasswing, and an AOE that heals can end games in a single turn.

    Repetitive Consecration on a dragon with upsides. Will probably see some play after a discover effect.

    Nice card with potential for massive healing. There might not be a lot of 2-health minions by turn 8, but if this hits 2 or 3, that's 8 or 12 health restored.

    This is either under or over estimated, I will try it but don’t expect it to be good.

    I agree that it's being dismissed too easily.  But I don't see how Librams will help line up HK's?  I think the only HK's it's going to get are from it's consecration-like ability, and because it's part of the card, it can't scale with spell damage. I think the card is fun and decent, but I think getting HK's are largely going to come from setting up your other minions to feed it HK's with it's passive ability, while you smack enemy face with the main body.

    What I'm imagining is that you've got a board of slightly too small minions to trade in order to line up the enemy minions at 2 health, but having several 0-cost +1/+1 buffs that come back when you trade makes it much easier to account for that. Basically any minion you have could be as much as +2/+2 bigger before trading if it needs to be.

    Very powerful dragon just for this stats, but with a little aoe and healing your face is a very strong card
