    Could be strong depending on available weapons and synergy. We haven't really gotten good Warrior weapons in a while anyways.

    I tried having fun once.

    It was awful.

    This isn't really as bad as people are making it out to be. Captain Greenskin saw play before, and this one has more upside because it buffs all weapons in your deck. Buffing your Outrider's Axes with this is already good. A 5/5 body for 5-mana is also fair. 

    If Warrior gets some really good weapons in the future, this will see play. It's just a solid, if unexciting card.

    If there were better weapons, then this card might be included simply because of that. But with so many Rustrot Vipers out there, Im a bit skeptical if this card would end up doing much at all.

    An unspectacular card to be honest, and likely one of those cards where it'll sit in your collection for 2 years, and you've got it from a pack to add insult to injury.

    The weapon hate in the current meta is pretty strong to make this super valuable.  Granted, if you had things like Outrider's Axe to help you draw, this makes it decent.  But again, you need to be able to get through all the weapon hate.

    wow this is trash. Warrior needs some INSANE weapons in order for this to be worth it. Not only that but this effect is USELESS in any warrior deck that runs Raid the Docks, so for this to be good it NEEDS good weapons... and Bulwark of Azzinoth is rotating which would have been an amazing target for the buff. I want this card to be good, just because it means less Raid the Docks warriors....

    Captain Greenskin almost never saw play in warrior, and Hobart Grapplehammer also didnt see much play. And Lady Ashvane is a combination of both... Not only that but she often has the same effect as Doctor Krastinov which is a lot better because it has immidiate impact on the board and is a potential threath because it can buff weapons even more times...... But yet again, Doctor Krastinov also saw almost no play. And Lady Ashvane is basically a Doctor Krastinov that has pretty much no impact on the board.

    On top of that even Upgrade! only saw play because of Wrenchcalibur, and didn't see that much play otherwise.... And that's only a 1 mana RARE spell. Not even legendary. What am i trying to say? I'm trying to say that effects like these have OFTEN failed in HS history, and that Lady Ashvane seems VERY underwhelming when comparing her to similar cards. Also don't forget that Rustrot Vipers are a bit common, most good weapons are rotating AND on top of that she is VERY slow and has no immidiate impact on the board. The only time i can see her getting played is if:

    1. an OP AF weapon gets printed, which could happen considering there still are a lot of warrior cards unrevealed.

    or

    2. Their bringing back Bomb warrior or Wrenchcalibur in the core set. (Please no)

    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.

    What's with Warrior having high-tier cards that are so niche? The Fires of Zin-Azshari and now this; reminds me of the Explore Un'Goro situation, where you have to ask why they're wasting a class card slot on such an idea. This is better than the other two I mentioned, obviously, but it's also a Warrior Legendary that just didn't need to be one.

    We need to see some serious support for this Weapon Warrior card to go anywhere.

    Captain Greenskin on steroids. Could be good, if Warrior gets tech weapons worth running like Wrenchcalibur.

    5 Mana 5/5 is decent on it`s own and the battlecry looks good depending on how many good weapons we will have in the expansion! But still playable!

    How many weapons does Warrior usually run in a deck? Though I guess this would be pretty good even if the answer is two copies of two different weapons.

    The battlefield buff is the thing that sets this apart the most from Hobart Grapplehammer, but beyond that, like, this is just a slower Hobart. I' just don't think, unless you're running A LOT of weapons, why you would consider putting this in a deck, and this comes from someone who played a lot of Warrior with Hobart Grapplehammer.

    I have spoken.

    Yes, but mind you, Captain Greenskin wasn't nearly as good and still saw play; maybe we are in a completly different HS' era and this wouldn't make the cut anymore tho ... If only Warrior had received a substantial arsenal, if only!

    Really wants a dedicated Weapon deck, and even then Weapon decks are warped around playing 2-3 weapons in total. Really have to scrounge for those weapon tutors.

    Really don't like this legendary. I feel the effect is way to lackluster and won't see play. I'm going to open it in packs though 😓 guaranteed.

    It just doesn't seem great, honestly. Too weak an effect to warrant it being played.
