    So far The only relevant one was the AoE from yesterday...which is decent but not exactly something I'd build a deck around.

    I tried having fun once.

    It was awful.

    Decent BIG taunt, but it just lacks support right now. Demonic Assault and Felfire in the Hole! are probably the "best" fel spells in standard right now. Yeh it needs better fel spells in order to be good.

    And in Wild, you only really have Felfire Potion as a option besides the fel spells i just said. And that's a BAD option for a fell spell, cuz it will damage your Felwalker. Pay 1 more mana for a 3/2 body with taunt? No thanks.

    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.

    If there's ever a decent Fel spell printed, this has a chance of seeing play. Not this expansion though.

    This is clearly setup for next year.  There's no decent fel spells currently but I suspect that (as end of year expansions go) the power level will be insane later down the road.

    Its a good battlecry, but a shame really that there is not much of a valuable target to hit with it.
    I'm sure in time, this will shine - probably in wild tho

    Clearly this was the pay off cards for all the subpar fel spells that were introduced this expansion. Full-Blown Evil for example is an excellent cast from this card, which not only sets up a taunt but somewhat deals with the board as well.

    Unfortunately, a few poor pieces here and there cannot be redeemed by a decent card at best. There's some hope for this card however, because for what its worth, it does cast a spell for free and puts up a taunt. So it there's better fel spells around, this card will shine a bit brighter.

    I don't believe in Fel Warlock, and outside of that shell this is just a mediocre taunt.

    This with Felfire in the Hole! gives you a free draw and aoe if you manage to get both of them in your hand, pretty strong combo

    Well it's a 6 mana taunt demon, which makes me think control. And only really nice control fel spells are Demonic Assault and The Dark Portal which isn't bad. We'd have to wait till blizzard print a higher cost fel spell for this to get better value.

    I'm not feeling the fel warlock stuff. There's an idea, "play fel spells," and that's about it. 

    Chumbawumba is the worst band name.

    Most expensive fel spells are Demonic Assault and The Dark Portal. Still, that's a 3/7 taunt for 2 mana. Can't complain. I'm not sure that makes for a good handlock, though.

    This can easily replace itself with Felfire in the Hole! or The Dark Portal, making it a pretty reasonable inclusion for a Fel Handlock deck.

    Great taunt, but I would like to see more of the Fel spells make their way into being awesome

    Same as 2/1 drawing Fel spells. Needs more better Fel synergies to be actually good, but I do like the idea of the card.

    There are only a few  cards in standard that you would want this to target. Anything else runs the risk of bad outcomes for not much benefit. This might be priming for future expansions but I don't see this one doing much right now.

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

    Warlock doesn't even have that many good Fel spells in Standard. Hell, even in Wild the options aren't great.

    Don't get me wrong, a lot of them are fine on their own, but casting them off this just doesn't seem worth including it in the deck over other options, especially when some of the better spells would actively hurt it or would end up targeting randomly.

    This card sucks, but only because Warlock doesn't have any good expensive Fel spells right now. I expect that will change in the near future, so I will definitely be keeping my eye on him for future expansions.

    I have spoken.

    Not a lot of strong or even good options with this. Not sure Felfire in the Hole! by itself will make it worthwhile.
