    I never thought they would print such a card...

    I feel like they went too far with this one. It would of been fine if it was like destroying 10 armor, but all of it? High Priest Thekal finally had hope to be in a deck but now people won't want to risk getting destroyed by this thing. I'm not saying that this will ruin the meta, it's just kinda intense having a tech card that can completely destroy a class on it's own.

    I am not a fan of this card at all (and I am bias since I do love playing some control Warrior).

    More dragons? Yes please!

    That's the definition of meta defining. Warriors and druids will fear this like hell.

    Wow. This card just craps on the entire Warrior and Druid classes. There's not even a condition to pull it off. 

    I guess Control Warrior will be dead for the foreseeable future, as long as this card exists....

    As much as I hate to play against control warrior and always wanted something to deal with the armor, this is not the way.  

    it would have been preferable to have something to hit health ignoring armor or more in general put an upper cap on armor like health has (e.g. max armor 30). But this is just bonkers.

    A puzzle box? What does it say? ... Yogi-Saffron something... sure, let's open it, what is the worst that could happen?

    card exists-> class not viable.. people sometimes..

    damn..

    you need to be facing mostly druids(in wild, in standard druids don't have that much armor..) and warriors to want to run this card..

    running a card has a cost it's a slot in your deck, this card has no keyword, no tribe.. so  it can't be discovered with most cards you HAVE to run it in your deck.. so if you are not facing warrior this card is not that great, vs druid it's fine but only counters one card they currently run, and kun is leaving to wild when this expansion comes out.

    So if you decide to run this guy you have a 5 mana 5/5 vanilla vs most classes...

    good tech card though finally there's a way to punish armor stacking sadly this card as most tech cards come waaaay waaay too late and it should be in KAC where druid had like 100 armor per game..

    I don't think that High Priest Thekal is "ruined" I mean if that thekal deck is popular alongside warrior then it can be easily countered but that deck is just too fair anyway..

    This card is dumb when cards like High Priest Thekal exist...

    Real issue with this card is: are you really going to tech up for it?

    Atm no Armor class looks particularly broken.

    Thekal would need to see a lot of play for this to be a relevant tech card again it. The older styles of Fatigue Warrior have been dying off lately so tons of armor gain isn’t as much of a thing other than a few specific decks.

    All things considered, I really don’t think this is gonna be that great. Probably along the lines of that secret eater, a nice enough card, bit too niche to see consistent play in different metas

    Who needs consistency when you could have fun?

    At this point I'm 100% convinced I stayed up way too late browsing r/customhearthstone and this expansion is just one big lucid dream I'm having in which Blizzard is taking all sorts of custom card ideas and making them reality. I'm terrified that in a few hours I'm just going to wake up and forget this ever happened.

    Brought up this issue as well, the answer is probably rogue if it gets destroyed by warrior too much and combo decks that have limited damage output and want to have a way to guarantee they can kill any opponent from 30 rather than 50..

    besides I think people would run this before boom got nerfed.. but it's not OMG broken as some comments here claim you really want to tech it when warrior is a hard counter to you.. cause armor also get countered by doing damage.

    Finally! An armor breaking card. Now all we need is a card that bypasses armor and deals damage directly to the hero!

    Kidding. This card is dependent on the meta. Control Warrior isn't in a good place rn and the only other decks this could be used against in Standard are Quest Druid and Linecracker Druid. Wild is a different discussion though. This card will annoy Malfurion decks running Malfurion the Pestilent or other Druid decks that ramp up armor like Mecha'thun Druid.

    Well it's over

    Yeah I guess I am worrying a little too much, it's just that the effect seems really overtuned. Though you will feel rather annoyed when running this card against any class other than Warrior or Druid.

    Such is the nature of tech cards I suppose.

    More dragons? Yes please!
