    And here I thought Cookie's fish was actually specific to Mercs.

    Good card, very easy to activate and great with handbuffs but might be a bit too generic depending on the meta. Also need to wait and see the new Holy Spells, without Librams and Hand of A'dal the spell density in Paladin is lowered a lot.

    I tried having fun once.

    It was awful.

    Great card, and easy to activate. Will 100% see play in some kind of slower paladin deck. It is also great for handbuff paladin, because it just makes Shimmering Sunfish a lot stickier. I think this will see plenty of play!

    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.

    Dont know why, the fish looks so tasty. I know commissioning art isn't exactly cheap, but reusing a token card's art? and its cookie's disposal seafood for god's sake.

    But fortunately this minion is good. In fact its great. 3 mana 2/5 divine shield taunt is about as defensive and sticky as it gets. The only way this can disappoint would be that holy spells in the next meta are all completely worthless. But Ive a feeling that that wouldn't be the case.

    Probably going to be my favorite card out of the expansion. Love the art, it's so adorable and the anti-aggro aspect with good stats is gonna piss off all the aggro decks, and I love that too 😁

    Good Card - easy to activate and pretty darn good for buff paladin!

    Even with the rotation, I'm sure that Paladin won't have a problem meeting the requirements for summoning a 2/5 divine shield taunter on T2/3.  That is just a pain already though thinking about how we need some good silence or destroy effects

    Reminds me of a yellow tang. 3 mana 2/5 with an easy condition to make it better. Solid card.

    Well, I think a 3-mana 2/5 divine shield taunt is pretty damn good. So far only 7 Paladin Holy spells that we know are going to be in standard. Not sure if it will trigger often enough with that, so we'll have to see what's in the new core set and what's in this expansion.

    It's pretty good, especially if you're running buffs to make it even bigger. Good for protecting your face early, or your other minions. I'd imagine this sees play, even if most of Paladin's best Holy spells are rotating. A real good 3-drop for a variety of Paladin decks.

    I have spoken.

    Since you just need to be holding a Holy spell, this is a really good Annoy-o

    Nice stats and easy enough to trigger the Battlecry, so it should be added to most Paladin decks!
