    Now...the Taunt pool for Warrior is fairly limited and usually costed in such a way that won't turn this into super cycle but...man, if you manage to have this stick for a turn..

    I tried having fun once.

    It was awful.

    Hmm this does have a lot of potential in some kind of taunt warrior deck, but i feel like other warrior archetypes are just way better right now. 

    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.

    Draw is always good, but this needs very cheap draw minions. Maybe something with To the Front! and Scrapsmith?

    Wow this is so good! Taunt quest warrior needed card draw and now it has it.

    Forces removal from your opponent. Unfortunately that's not a tall order with only 3 Health.

    Cycle is always good but this seems like a weird statline for the deck it's trying to push.

    Its fine honestly. But probably only playable if you intend to build around this and To the Front!, because most taunts will cost at least 2.

    Unless of course theres a card that spits out 1 mana taunts in hand. But that card is yet to exist far as I know.

    This - in the Un'Goro era - would have made me cry.
    In 2021, support for Fire Plume is leaving me with a "Mhe" impression

    Are you going to be running enough taunt minions to make this worth a deck slot or 2? I know Sword Eater is very popular.

    Nice card draw with Scrapsmith but Glory Chaser itself technically has taunt . If the stats were reversed and it was a 3/4, then it would be great, but at 3 health, there's many ways this can be kills with spells, bypassing all the taunts you just played. It's still a card draw engine, which will be good if control/frost/armor warrior takes off.

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

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

    I wouldn't mind dropping this on 3 as aggresive minion to force removal that would get better cards later on but still, taunts played nowadays aren't as common as they were in warrior.

    This has some clear synergy with cards like Bulk Up, Scrapsmith, and Encumbered Pack Mule that generate extra taunt minions, and if you can play on the same turn as one or more taunts then it might stick around to be a powerful draw engine. With only three health, though, I expect this will probably only ever draw one or two cards before your opponent blows it up with a "Deal 3" effect (of which there are tons). The dream here is to combine this with To the Front! to generate a big board of taunts for super cheap and draw several cards. To the Front! + Glory Chaser + Scrapsmith could be 6 mana to summon 10/15 in stats and draw three cards. That's very powerful, but it's also a three card combo, so assembling it in time might be tough.

    Not bad, but I'm not bullish on this.

    the 3 health makes this less impressive.  With a number of spells and battlecries that deal 3 damage in the meta right now you'd need to have some kind of protection or health buff for this to make a difference

    Bit too conditional for my liking.

    We got several cards for taunt warrior, but I don't know if taunt warrior was an 'almost deck' that just needed a few extra cards to make it work. It is card draw though and that is always a good thing.

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

    I noted the potential for this with To the Front! in my Warrior review, but honestly I'm nt sure how much this can really do in Standard. Seems like it might be a bit more fun in Wild, if not a truly competitive deck.

    Good card draw for Taunt decks. There are a lot of decent Taunt minions that, if Warrior wanted to try it out, I think the archetype could be pretty decent and at the very least could draw lots of cards.

    I have spoken.

    Not too many 1 mana Taunts for Warrior, but that's what To the Front! is for!
