    Pretty good. A board clear on a stick.

    this is close enough to the original Deathwing, now you can play 3 of them in the same deck.

    Assuming it attacks in a random order and stops if it dies, this doesn't seem too crazy. Against a small board, it's Twisting Nether that leaves a threat, but against a big board, it honestly might not do much

    3 ?! More like 6, thanks to Sathrovarr !
    But yes, 3 different iterations of the same unique minion is something

    And you can do it while playing as the new Deathwing Warrior hero

    I hope this can help my Big Dragon Warrior deck until next rotation.

    Pretty strong card. Hard to imagine that it won't see at least some amount of competitive play.

    The more I think about this card, the more I like it. For one, it is a dragon, and the main use of dragons in dragon decks is not to play them, but to save them to trigger all of their dragon synergies. So having dragons that are situational is okay. 

    Against a wide board, Deathwing is basically a not-so-reliable board clear. But against just one or two minions, deathwing is basically a 12/12 with rush. Similar to the original Deathwing, Mad Aspect will, more often than not, clear the board and leave behind a very large threat. 

    This card is basically a much more reliable Swamp King Dred. I think it will see play in dragon warrior (and big warrior, if that ever becomes a thing).

    P.S. Why is his name 'mad aspect' instead of 'aspect of madness'? This would be more consistent with the new malygos, and it would sound a lot cooler. 

    First rule of the English language: Their our know rules.

    I really do love this card so far, one of them that I’m most looking forward to playing when it comes out. Warrior’s generally never really been bothered by killing it’s own minions with a board clear, so that’s not so bad for it either

    Who needs consistency when you could have fun?

    If it attacked every minion at once it would certainly be strong perhaps even OP but the fact that it only attacks 1 minion at a time makes it not that very good. Small minions can easily be buffed to a point that deathwing might only take 2 minions out (fungalmancer before it rotated for example), and decent sized minions usually have effects/damage enough for themselves that it also will only be 2 attacks before deathwing dies.

     

    Versus a freshly spawned token board its most likely a free clear versus other boards it might take out 1 or two minions.

    So an okay card in my opinion also have to consider the RNG aspect of the attack order i'm assuming.

    I dont want to clear my own board. But evolving a 7-drop to a 12/12 is nice (for you, not your opponent). Isnt the fleshshaper OP enough?

    Never netdeck, craft Whizbang instead!
