    This sounds insanely powerful if you can reasonably pull it off anywhere near curve. If that is actually possible in any current deck I don't know, but good god are you not allowed to leave a Lifesteal minion up against Paladin.

    I tried having fun once.

    It was awful.

    Oh my god I didn't even think of that one, that'S actually pretty nuts (If only Pure Paladin was still around).

    I guess it's technically balanced by Truesilver not being able ot heal you if you aren't already damaged.

    I'm not sure about this one. On the one hand, it's a lot of stats for 5 mana. On the other hand, heal paladin cards have always been a bit too difficult to activate. Because of that, I think this won't make the cut in any competitive paladin deck.

    Very good control tool for paladin. Seems really good, in basicly any kind of slower paladin deck. I feel like Paladin might be THE best control class next expansion.

    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.

    2x 5/5s for 5 mana sounds good, but healing is a trigger that's not only more difficult to activate than most, but also usually not cheap.

    Nice with Truesilver Champion, but that means you're dodging vipers and you'd actually have to play truesilver champion, a card that currently sees 0 play.

    I think while its very strong, its likely not consistent enough to ever be good. Reminds me alot of Zandalari Templar, of which is a better card but ultimately found no use in its time.

    A sad case back then. Hopefully not the same with this card.

    This could in theory combo with Lightbringer's Hammer (remember that card?) but falls into the same problem/trap as Truesilver Champion. Catacomb Guard and City Tax are also possible inclusions to help trigger, but ultimately require more mana (not on curve) to work together.

    With a lifesteal minion already on board, or with a cheap healing spell, this can be pretty naughty

    Pretty good card if you're behind on board against aggro, only thing is you need to heal and there's only 13 cards in standard that do that atm: https://outof.cards/hearthstone/cards/?hsclass=12&hsclass=5&text=restore&collectible=yes&standard=yes 

    Maybe Vitality Surge and Snack Run?

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

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

    If you trigger this on curve, it's amazing. Lightbringer's Hammer and Truesilver Champion are both ways to do that on curve, but even that may not be enough redundancy to make this work.

    5 for a 5/5 taunter is mediocre.  SUmmoning 2, a bit better.  But having that condition is what is the pain.  You essentially will need to rely on having a lifesteal minion in play to drop it quick

    Very good syngergy with Vitality Surge for big paladin, some synergy with other sources of lifesteal that you already have.

    Very powerful

    I think it gets run. It might not often see full value in play, but I think it is good enough to help stabilize a board that the off chance of double minions is fine. Yes, two 5/5's on turn five is nuts, but just one is good. Two 5/5's on later turns when it is easier to combo the healing is still good.

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

    Kind of too heavy for Baka Paladin since it costs the same as there are more threatening cards at 5. Good enough for delay in Standard, I suppose.
