    Now I'm glad they were wise enough not to enable any 0-mana shenanigans but I still feel like this might break the game eventually. Until then it seems a bit.....weak? Basically you need to play at least 2-minions with 3-mana or above for it to actually be a relevant discount. My guess is that it's supposed to support handbuff and offset the downside of spending your early turns building your hand by being able to get out all your buffed lads.

    I tried having fun once.

    It was awful.

    AMAZING warrior card. To the Front! seems good in aggro/midrange warrior decks but even better.. IN BIG WARRIOR! Vanndar Stormpike to reduce costs of BIG minions, then cheat them out even harder with To the Front!! Enjoy your 4 mana Rattlegore, and any minion that originally costed 6 mana will be playable for only 1 mana. This card has a lot of potential, and i'm looking forward to playing around with it!

    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.

    Mana cheat is always something to watch out for. First thing I'm looking at is some wacky OTK with Captain Galvangar and Faceless Manipulator, but I'm sure it can be very good in a tempo deck as well.

    This is ok but not worth running as a use of a deck slot unless you’re playing a otk.

    This will end up being broken. Shenanigans with Faceless Manipulator, Mr. Smite, or something will happen because of this.

    And I'll second both of you - mana cheat are always something to watch out for, and this is no exception.
    My original though was that it would discount pirates or something, but reading through the thread, some are even more creative. Something broken will result from this

    I don't mind mana cheat and enabling wonky expensive turns at the cost of "do nothing" cards such as this.  What I worry about is the resurgence/reappearance of Charge.

    It seems that Charge is slowly making its way back into the game, which IMO is not a healthy aspect of the game I wish to re-engage.  I still have PTSD from Leeroy days.

    It looks like it will have to be pretty specific. I haven't heard of any OTK but there may be one. 

     

    Playing a bunch of 3 drops for cheap late in the game is awful

    Ad infinitum avoid at all cost in Arena...

    Pretty sure at some point some genius will do something with this card that'll complete break standard but for the time being I'm not seeing it. Best I can think off is something to do with Playmaker, Glory Chaser, or Faceless Manipulator.

    Step 1. Put Captain Galvangar, Faceless Manipulator and Vanndar Stormpike in your deck.

    Step 2. Get 15 armor.

    Step 3. Play Vanndar.

    Step 4. Turn 5: this card into 1 mana Captain Galvangar + 2 Faceless Manipulator.

    Step 5. Win?

    I am already scared of which broken future combo this card will enable. This card becomes better with every upcoming expansion down the road.

    I think it will be very strong for mid range combos to flood the board

    This kinda reminds me of all the crazy duels treasures. This card will certainly create a crazy OTK warrior with Mr. Smite and Captain Galvangar

    A combo finisher for control warrior? In magic Xmas land? Seems like it. I think the card is good, but we're going to try making it work and find out warrior doesn't have the mass draw to support this. 

    Chumbawumba is the worst band name.

    I guess this would be really good in a big Warrior deck? I think you would want to play more than 1 minion, other wise all you get is what you already spent on this card.

    Cost reduction is a big deal, and you only need to play two 3-drop minions to get value out of this. Even just playing two 3-drops on turn 4 could be powerful, but this has some very powerful synergies (like dropping Playmaker and a bunch of rush minions, or Warsong Commander and a bunch of cheap stuff). Those combos make me think this could bolster E.T.C., God of Metal OTKs type decks (which haven't seen play in a while). Even if this struggles to find a home today, I think it's certainly a card to watch out for.

    This card eventually is going to be a problem. Maybe not now but maybe now.

    This seems super counterintuitive to the way that Warrior card are coming out this set.  Great for Pirate Warrior, but less so for other things

    Potentially broken but doesn't feel like a card that I'd put in the deck without OTK in mind. And reading above, I would agree that if warrior will have an OTK deck, it will be played in it.
