    Am I missing something here or is this just filler?

    Like sure, Anti Rez tech and maybe Oaken Summons shenanigans, but that's about it.

    I tried having fun once.

    It was awful.

    I wouldn’t say it’s just filler, just rather situational. I’d personally think of filler as more yeti stuff.

    If their board is full or you have a board clear it could be decent enough, don’t think there’s too many 1 drops that could screw you over (really only that poisonous one in wild)

    Who needs consistency when you could have fun?

    That card is so bad... But if you get it from evolve... that's the only warm situation I can think about it now

    I think this is one of the worse cards printed until now(this expansion). Maybe a tech card vs ressurect as pointed, but still, not worth it. In standard at least, doesn't seem any good.

    Solid card nice stats but I feel like this is going to get worse as the revels go. Still, anti big priest is always nice but fuel for token and aggro isn't as much so. 

    Only a fool thinks they know everything. I admit that I know nothing

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

    Every expansion a new "anti big priest tech card" is printed, people praise it to the heavens, and finally 1-2 weaks later we all realize that playing 1 card that is terrrible vs all other classes is not worth it, so we leave the fancy new tech card in the dust.

    This will be the same, but worse, since our evolve/bloodlust/savage roar/knifejugler/wathever oponents will love the free minions.

    I calculated the average attack value of a 1-cost minions in standard and I got 1.06060606061 (we'll just say 1.06 for simplicity sake).

    This means that most of the time this will end up being a 4 mana 3/6 or 3/5 taunt. If most of the time this minion will end up with a very similar stat/cost distributions as Sen'jin Shieldmasta then why not just play Sen'jin Shieldmasta? It is just not worth the risk of letting your opponent get 3 extra bodies on the field. 

    The only way this card can ever be good is if your opponent already has a full board (in which case you wouldn't want a slightly beefy taunt, but rather a board clear) or if you really need a good way to counter big priest (which you don't right now, and even if you did a better idea would be to play cards like Hex, Devolve, and Plague of Murlocs).

    All in all I just don't think this card will ever be worth it. There is just far too much risk involved, maybe once every twenty times you play this you will roll Swamp Dragon Egg, Blood Imp, and Spirit of the Raptor but there is just no way whatsoever that this card will be played in any sort of competitive deck (or a non-competitive deck for that matter).

    Can we change this to summon 1drop and 2drop, so it can summon Doomsayer?:)

    Only worth running as a big priest obliterator, or via Oaken Summons

    I do what I must, when I must. Know this well.

    I'm not a big fan of summoning stuff for my opponent, but 3 1-Drops have the potential to clog up a board and mess with the rez pool as well, so it isn't completely terrible, or at least not all everything about this card is bad.

    This being some sort of anti-rez tech or MC Tech combo card is a joke. Cards like this are rarely good unless its very fringe, and this one isn't winning any awards. Random 1 drops might generally be bad, but there will also be cases where this feels your opponent some awesome stuff. Yes, there are the 1 cost Spirits that have 0 attack and likely won't be good for your opponent at all, there are a bunch of middling things, but there are some pretty highroll things and you can easily blow yourself out against a lot of decks. Its true this makes Evolve better, but I don't think that card will still be around once this set comes out.

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

    The only way this sees constructed play is if decks that rely on certain rez effects become dominant. Apart from the obvious priest, this has (albeit) limited potential to disrupt/limit N'Zoth, Gul'dan, Witching Hour, Kangor's Endless Army etc.

    I can't imagine this happening, and there's more reliable techs against most single cards, but it's worth noting.

    No you miss the point. It's not that the card is good but the fact that it's there is good. It keeps rez priest in check. You don't need to actually play the card to let it have impact. Whenever Rez priest could becomes a problem, it won't. And that archetype is not fun to play against so it's nice it exists.

    Also: evolve will be out when this comes avaliable in standard and in Wild evolve isn't over powered.

    I think its a good tech card against ressurrect .. but I don't know, the 1 drops can be really annoying and really help the opponent ..

    I'm sorry for my bad english :)

    This card isn't that bad, it can always be combo'd with an AoE, or your board with Acolyte of Pain or such. And 9 health Taunt is hard to push through when played early.

    Could see play in Gonk Druid, but other than that, it’s too risky to put out.  Like others said, Combo priest would benefit from this card.  I’m curious to see if Taunt Warrior can utilize this somehow as well.

    2 stars.

    Hell Yeah, a great card for Oaken Summons.

    ...other than that, it's a pack filler lol.
