    So a much better Antique Healbot, stat- and tribewise. Healadin is my favorite deck of all time so I like this card very much :D

    5 mana for a decent body and good healing? Yes please.

    Remember Antique Healbot? Uh, yeah, here he is again and powered up a lot.

    This has nonesense power level... A better antique healbot with the dragon tag? This sets power creeping scares me a bit :/

    Never netdeck, craft Whizbang instead!

    it's a bit...boring?

    Like sure, it's definitely going to be used in Dragon paladin (however that deck is going to turn out eventually), but it's not like Paladin desperately needs heals.

    I'd rather get some rush or taunt dragons to be used with Dragonspeaker and the other legendary. I guess this means we're really doubling down on the whole "handbuff big bois and survive until you can play them" strategy, which makes Sand Breath so much more confusing.

    I tried having fun once.

    It was awful.

    Amber Watcher looks like a phenomenal tool for a Hand Buff Dragon Paladin who wants to win the late game with huge dragons. There's probably still some risk that a Control Paladin archetype gets outclassed by other late game decks with powerful board clears (e.g. Warriors with Brawl) but being able to reliably activate Zandalari Templar and/or get value out of High Priest Thekal while playing for tempo (i.e. not spending all your mana on healing + card draw) could make this a reliable archetype.

    Wow, an upgraded Antique Healbot and it is also a dragon. This will be played in highlander, dragon, mid-range, control, basically every paladin deck there is. A 5/6 for 5 is not bad, but the extra 8 health to any target makes this card super powerful.

    So simple, yet so amazing. This card is the bridge between healadin and dragon paladin, opening doors to many new deckbuilding options. Maybe Zandalari Templar will finally see some play now.

    This card is absolutely nuts with or without a viable dragon paldin deck : it's just good on its own.

    Ancient Healbot is back, with a dragon tag. Seems very good in dragon pally. Works also well with the new legendary.

    Coz Pally didn't have enough healing? Screws over aggro decks quite a bit.

    Wow, this one is OP in like every Paladin deck, except maybe the aggro ones. 5 mana for 4/6 dragon with heal is beyond good. I think it will be an almost auto-include. 

     

    Now, you don't have to push so hard, Blizz. Chill

    People are saying RIP Antique Healbot, how 'bout RIP Tuskarr Jouster?

    Blizzard's doing their damnedest to show how bad TGT is.

    A man is lying on the street, some punks chopped off his head

    I'm the only one who stops to see if he's dead.

    Hmm. Turns out he's dead.

    That’s a lot of healing for vanilla stats. Very nice

    This card is just stupid right? Antique Healbot was one of the most played healing cards of all time, and it could only heal your face, and was a 5 mana 3/3, this is a 4/6, that can heal a minion, and has a very very relevant minion type. Like WTF is going on with how good this is. Obviously its not an aggro card, but basically in any other paladin deck you can think of, midrange, control, combo, you probably just play this. Its just that good. I think this card is 5 stars across the board.

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