    Still waiting on those Warrior Invoke cards, Blizzard :/ The card is fine but hey, at least we're still seeing some Lackey support. Warrior hasn't really used their Lackey generators; maybe this'll change.

    Not very exciting, but Lackey generation and a Body is solid.

    I hope they'll give Priest finally some Lackey-Synergy Cards though.

    Me likey. That's great value in a 3-mana card, in a Crocolisk body. Solid.

    The amount of value in this card is just insane. You get an extra resource, armor AND a body for only 3 mana.

    Don't know if it will be played in dragon decks but will be sure played in Galakron decks.

    Since there is no lackey synergy for warrior dont think this card will see play outside arena. Maybe it can be good enough for reno warrior as a jack of all trades card, we will see

    Looks like a nice utility minion, but don't recall Warrior doing much with their lackeys at all.

    That was basically my train of thoughts too. 
    Would warrior benefit tho from Lackey synergy and support?

    Amazing card. Getting lackeys is a powerful thing, and the 3 armor on top of that makes up for the lack of stats. This is a very good card for a common. It will probably be played in aggro/midrange warriors, and with the cards we have seen so far, this looks like it will be a powerful deck.

    While this is a very nice card that gains you armor, a lackey and an ok body all for 3 mana, it has some competition for that important 3 mana slot in most Warrior decks.

    Are you playing a dragon deck? Scion of Ruin and Smolderthorn Lancer might be a better choice.

    Rush synergy? Scion of Ruin and Rabid Worgen want in.

    More of the aggressive type? Frothing Berserker and Bloodsworn Mercenary are stronger.

    Bombing some fools? Clockwork Goblin and Augmented Elekk are the ones for the job.

    Drawing cards? Acolyte of Pains body is ready!

    Galakrond deck? Scion of Ruin is a must.

    So again, it's a nice card, but Warrior has a lot of strong 3 mana minions that can fit in lots of different decks. Also Warrior doesn't seem to use lackeys all that much unlike Rogue and Warlock. I'm not saying that it won't be able to find a deck, it's just gonna be a little harder than just auto including this in any Warrior deck you make.

     

    More dragons? Yes please!

    Exactly me.

    They have EVIL Conscripter and that's it. They desperately need more generators and synergy.

    No, that's wrong!

    Plated Beetle, but for one mana more you get the armor immediately and you get a lackey. Seems like a great card for a warrior that wants to survive early aggro

    This is a solid card. The stats aren't great and all the effects are small, but for the net value its not bad. Its always nice to get any amount of bonus armor on an incremental value card. 

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

    Good card, I doubt it will see play in standard.  In arena, this card is nuts.

    Despite the competition, I have a feeling this will see play eventually.

    Bit of armor and a lackey to go along with it, what’s not to love

    Who needs consistency when you could have fun?

    Its just good. Cheap armor and a lackey is always welcomed.

    Never netdeck, craft Whizbang instead!

    Cause you can run a maximum of 4 3 drops in a deck

    Scion of Ruin doesn't really count as a 3-drop. There's no way you Invoke twice consistently by turn 3 and you also would only play it in a Galakrond deck. Smolderthorn Lancer also isn't a turn 3 play for any deck. This however is nice to play anytime. Other than Aggro Warrior, I could definitely see this being core to Warrior decks, and even in Aggro Warrior it wouldn't be that bad.

    Decent card, but i am not sure it can find a place, unless some Lackey Warrior deck emerges.

    Well this is a strongly upgraded EVIL Cable Rat lol

    Warrior hasn't been a "lackey class" per se, but who know what can happen. I think this card is strong enough to see play even without any other Lackey support.

    Yeah I guess at first that was the direction that my comment was going for. What I was trying to say was that this card doesn't seem to be good enough to compete against the other warrior packages.

    This minion gives you armor which is good for control and a lackey which is better for getting tempo/value, so I see it being used in a control deck.

    So you are going for a control Warrior? In standard, you'll usually want to pair it up with something else like a mech, bomb, taunt, dragon or a rush package. Also you'll want some draw so might as well get an Acolyte of Pain and/or Shield Block. After considering those things, I don't think you'll be looking for another 3 drop.

    I wasn't trying to say that you can only run four 3 drops, but that this card just doesn't really answer any major needs for those decks. Also Warrior doesn't have any Lackey synergy cards for a lackey package (for now that is) so its just going to be more complicated to find a good reason to include this card in your control Warrior deck.

    More dragons? Yes please!

    Seems like a nice card, although unsure on what deck it goes into.

    Lackeys have been rather underwhelming in Warrior thus far. Tempo Warrior has so many better 3 mana plays that I don't see this making the cut. A slower more control based Warrior might run it for the armor gain maybe, but again there are so many other cards fighting for that 3 mana slot.

    Not a bad card by any means, I just don't see it having an impact until after rotation.
