    Is Frost Warrior actually going to be a thing? Either way, with Heavy Plate + Hero Power this costs nothing, making it effectively a 5-mana spell in practice most of the time, which shouuld be good enough. Also means that Warrior now cares about keeping their armor instead of treating it as a second healthbar.

    I tried having fun once.

    It was awful.

    INSANE removal, 5/5 star amazing card. Maybe it will be worth running Frozen Buckler just for Shield Shatter! Worst case scenario you can hero power + Heavy Plate to reduce it to 0 mana. Also remember any card that can be reduced to 0 mana has a BIG chance to be broken. 

    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.

    Crazy good removal, especially combined with Frozen Buckler. Warrior actually gained a lot of armor gain these last few expansions, and this just gets cheaper so damn fast. People are gonna hate this.

    I think this is a bit win more. I don’t want to run Frozen Buckler for this.

    I like this. Needing the armor stops this from being played too early, and later on its just a better Flamestrike.

    I'm unsure if its good enough to make the cut, but it sure is quite the removal

    This just seems like reckless flurry but generally better in all but the most extreme of circumstances.

    Its cheap removal, and dealing 5 AoE is as good as it can get.

    The problem is the cost, which fluctuates between good and mediocre. Realistically the average cost you'll likely be paying for this, against a deck where clear matters like aggro decks, is 5 - Heavy Plate + hp

    But you can throw in Frozen Buckler and suddenly this card is just clearing for a mere 2 mana, which is incredible.

    One small problem: without heavy plate or frozen buckler this card will likely be useless, because any decent tempo deck will no doubt be clearing your armor every turn. We've all been here before with Shield Slam in control warrior. Still, I'd rate this highly if only because clearing on the cheap is something control warriors need.

    A very strong combo with Frozen Buckler, maybe 2 card combo doesn't seem very attractive but it's only 2 mana.

    5 aoe for 2 mana y just crazy

    This costs 0 if you play Frozen Buckler first. That's a 5 damage AoE for 2 mana. Sure it it's your side too, but I don't think that's ever been a huge problem.

    Well, this card makes Frozen Buckler much better now. You'd ideally want to play this board clear when you're behind or have no minions on board, which as control warrior, seems likely to happen. Not sure why you wouldn't pick Brawl instead though, unless you only have 2 mana to play the Frozen Buckler then this.

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

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

    Great card for control warrior being online basically whenever you want with Frozen Buckler and let's not forget warrior still can run Kresh.

    Between Snowblind Harpy and Frozen Buckler (and a host of existing armor gain cards), it should be very easy to decrease the cost of this and blow up midgame boards with ease. Seems like very strong removal for Armor/Control Warrior.

    Not bad at all!  With all the various ways that you can gain armor, even on T5 turn you could be looking at 5 mana to hit everything.  (Heavy Plate then this).  This seems like a really good board punch.

    Decent enough for it's condition. Glad this doesn't cost an odd amount.

    Obviously intended as an immediate combo with Frozen Buckler. Without that, this is a tough card to use. While warrior often has some armor, it isn't always up in the range that makes this an easy card to play.

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

    It's very easy to build your deck in such a way that this costs (0) or close to it whenever you look to play it. I think that Frozen Buckler was a little on the nose, even, but I guess they're trying to push for more Control to pivot from Pirates.

    Very strong AoE for Control Warrior that like to stack up the Armor. It's a 5 Mana combo with Heavy Plate at the very least, so I think there's a real chance for Big Warrior to try it out and be pleased with the result.

    I have spoken.

    Makes Frozen Buckler worth playing, but also pretty good with Heavy Plate.
