    Kibler's got a nice card lol.

    3 3/2s with rush is pretty good for 3 mana.

    Comparable to Restless Mummy at a 1 mana discount with another 3/2 body, assuming you fulfill its condition.

    Seems like an auto include in all gakakrond warriors. That means in all warriors from now on.

    Rabid Worgen was a 3/3 rush wich was played

    This is a Dragon, so that alone makes it better since enables dragon sinergy(like getting another copy with Dragon Breeder

     

    But its pretty bonkers if you meet the condition, and even more if you draw this via Galakrond's battlecry since then it's potentially 3 7/6 with rush for 3 mana

    Like wow. In the right deck this is awesome card. Of course, it will come later as you need invoke twice but 3/2 rush for 3 is not a bad minion either

    Good card if you got the Invoke off. Will definitely see play in Galakrond decks.

    Not so strong for Curve, but very strong in later turns.

    Nice art too.

    If drawn with galakrond it's a 3 mana 3 7/6 s dragons with rush, which you might want to use dragon breeder on one of these for more removal of such effect...

    It all comes together.. Just need actual galakrond invokes in warrior.

    They’re really pushing the archetype huh? A really good card to make up for any subpar cards you might’ve used to activate it

    Who needs consistency when you could have fun?

    A 3 mana removal if you are behind in the early game and a huge tempo play later, when 2 invokes triggered. Pretty nice!

    Never netdeck, craft Whizbang instead!

    Pretty nice for a Galakrond dragon deck. Seem like warrior will be using some of the dragons they got in Rasthakan Rumble.

    given that this was revealed prematurely I suppose there will be more synergy cards to justify its effect.

    We haven't seen the Warrior Invokers yet, but I doubt we get ones that actually allow you to play this on turn 3...meaning the true strength of this comes from

    a) being drawn with Galakrond

    or

    b) synergizing with some other dragon related mechanic that has yet to be revealed for Warrior

    Either way, I doubt they'd waste an epic slot  on a card that's just a worse Restless Mummy at face value.

    I tried having fun once.

    It was awful.

    Definitely don't want to rush to conclusions here, but in the case that this is functionally a super Restless Mummy for one less mana, it's great. The question is, how many good invoke effects will Warrior have access to, and will they be easy to play before this? So far we've only seen a couple of neutral invokes and no Warrior invokes, so it's way too early to judge this card, but I suspect that the one mana extra on Restless Mummy will still be worth it to hit that "average value" of two 3/2 rush minions, specifically because it's so consistent. But maybe Galakrond Warrior has room for both, since 3 mana summon three 3/2 rush minions is powerful in the late game.

    Dragon Warrior rises from the ashes... like another mythical fiery flying creature.

    Pretty similar to Oasis Surger.

    Imagine getting this from Galakronds Battlecry! 3 7-6 with rush for 3 is bonkers.

    The only thing that's missing are some Warrior-Invokers. 

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

    Really good, 5/5, if you manage to invoke early. Still good in lategame with 9 rush damage, or absolutely insane if to draw them with Galakrond's buff. Now for Warrior to get some cheap invokers to trigger this...

    Clearly nice but, as all Invoke cards, everything depend on how Galakrond will turns out in the end.

    A really cheap late game removal for warriors (and they already have so many, maybe that's why they made the Galakrond condition).

    Absolutely fantastic - this will be in every Dragon/Control Warrior deck until it rotates.

    This card scales really well.

    (1) Will Warrior Galakrond be good?
    - I think it has a good shot. I like that one quite a bit

    (2) Will Warrior Galakrond want something like this?
    - Harder to say until the whole set is fleshed out, but it seems reasonable.
