    This seems like a fair invoke card since they seem to value the invoke effect at around 1 mana.

    The best invoke-card is neutral :) Hello?

    Never netdeck, craft Whizbang instead!

    Definitely better than the other neutral Invoke card we've seen.

    It's an Invoke card - so good in Galakrond decks, useless otherwise. So playability will depend entirely on how good the Galakronds are.

    Taunt means it can be discovered from Frightened Flunky, which makes you wonder what the Warrior's version of Galakrond will look like. 

    Ultimately it's fine, as others have noted.

    This is an OK taunt, maybe good even.

    A taunt yeti that costs one more for a special effect in my book is always good. what differentiated yisera from the Lich king was not just the cost or the random cards it generated, it was the taunt that many time gave you the extra turn or protected important minions. this having taunt, a fair cost and the invocation effect will make it see play in almost every galakrond deck.

    This is an invoking card that I´d rather use probably as a Warlock for example. His class invokers are very underwhelming and this card seems good enough with the invoking bonus.

    Seems like a auto include for all the Galakrond decks.

    Not too bad with Priest or Rogue, don't think it has a place in Warlock though.

    This is probably a strong card, but it's hard to tell without seeing the other Invoke cards. Compared to some other revealed ones though, this one seems pretty well stat'ed. It's also a free a card, so can't complain about that :)

    Could be a dragon, but its still a good neutral invoke card! We must see the other cards, but in this moment almost every Galakrond decks will run this.

    I'm sorry for my bad english :)

    Reasonable neutral Invoke minion. Can be broken or bad according to Galakronds' hero powers. 1 card 5 form. Neutral Invoke cards are so different. Hard to evaluate.

    it is;

    4/5 Taunt; Add a random priest minion to your hand
    4/5 Taunt; Add a random lackey to your hand
    4/5 Taunt; Summon two 1/1 imps

    at the same time and will be more when we learn other hero powers of Galakrond.

    So early to evaluate neutral Invoke cards imo.

    Just a card when you want to put more invoke cards in your deck, but could also use filling up your curve a bit.

    Great neutral Invoker. Seems like one of the must play ones. Though its not great in aggressive decks its still passable.

    To crush your enemies, to see them driven before you, and to hear the lamentations of the women.

    God I hope there's cheaper neutral invokers or else Warlock'S gonna be even more dead than it already is.

    I tried having fun once.

    It was awful.

    Vanilla stats and cost and it has the Invoke effect. Strong card compared to the other Invoke cards that have been revealed so far.

    Auto-include in most Galakrond decks, yes. Playable even if it shouldn't trigger Gala's hero powers, like in Arena.

    Shield of Galakrond will definitely be played a lot. It is an okay turn 5 play, and it is also one of the best stand-alone invoke cards in terms of cost/attack/health. It is also neutral, so every deck playing galakrond will want to play him.
