    Geez what a terrible card. So at best you're giving your opponent 3 1/1s making this 4 mana 3/6 taunt... At best...

    Could it be MCTech BFF? Giving Opp 3 minions and stealing his strongest one in controll match ups, where people tend to play only 1 or 2 minions? XD Its not unusual that MCtech steals the best minion on the field...

    What a well designed anti rez priest card! The days of big priest were kinda over and cards like this solidify it.

    Good card to keep your face safe from aggro decks and messing up with ressurection pools.

    Three 1 cost minions wouldn't usually be a big threat when used it.

    Yeah, good tech to disturb the opponents resurrect pool... Other ways its just not worth to run.

    Never netdeck, craft Whizbang instead!

    I'd probably want to combo it with MCtech, but that means not using a 4 drop taunt until late game. It could be good against rez priest, but you can't count on that matchup. Overall, not something I'm likely to put in my deck unless the meta has a lot of rez priest.

    I'm not a fan of this card, too much rng... not only it can screw you giving your opponent good 1 drops but the fact that we have another good early drop with high health and taunt it's not cool when the card will pop up as a random 4 drop on the board. 

    Nice tech versus resurrect priest if it will be a thing.

    Maybe good in a control deck that has a low damage low cost enemy only AoE?

    If you can trade some of the summoned tokens is really worth play.

     

    By the way, is an upgrade to Desert Hare evolve pool.

    By The Holy Light!

    Don't like it.  pretty bad as an early taunt because rng could break you bad.

    Even long after res/big priest will be gone from wild, I’ll still be teaching this card. Just to fuck over the last guy running that kind of deck :

    People keep mentioning big Priest counters but we already have Flight Master and Mad Summoner which saw no play. I don't think this card is any better and it will probably not see play.

    I'm happy they keep printing weird tech cards like this.

    Ressurect is just such a BS mechanic.

    Long, drawn-out Control Match-ups with Boardclears en masse and an unbelievable amount of greedy cards?

    If you can avoid the battlecry, or buff the hell out of it, Zul'Drak Ritualist is insane. It's also good as a counter to Priest resurrection strategies. Not sure it has a home in standard, though.

    I'm surprised so many people don't think this card is good anti-Res tech.The body is much better than Flight Master and it summons 3 minions instead of 1 so a much better chance of diluting the Res pool. It's also a lot cheaper than Mad Summoner. Given that all the summons are 1-drops, any board clear that does 2 or more dmg is likely to wipe out the lot, so it's a quick play for maybe 6/7 mana in total that will almost certainly leave you with a good body afterwards - especially in Priest mirrors given that health line is a prime target for Divine Spirit + Inner Fire afterwards.

    Will this be meta-defining? No. But I expect we'll see it played probably at/slightly below the frequency we saw other deck-specific tech cards like Skulking Geist

    I think, that could backfire way to hard. 

    Are there poisonous 1 drops at the moment?

    Finally a solid neutral(!) tech card against resurrection strategies. What's nice is that this can be pretty easily played alongside a small AoE to immediately clear the spawned minions.

    Great with oaken summons in wild, potentially better than Hecklebot. It's also a better tech card for big priest than, for example, Flight Master, since it's a good-statted taunt minion as well so it's not bad on its own. I don't believe there are any 1-drops to worry about, but still I'm not sure if there is any good reason to play this in standard.
