    Wow, this is actually incredibly solid and might bring back quest Druid in full force. Not only that, but just in general it helps slower Druid builds in the future now that Ferocious Howl will be gone soon.


    I tried having fun once.

    It was awful.

    Remember when Warrior was the Class with the best Armor-Generation?

    Anyway, 2 Mana gain 5 Health summon a 2-3 sounds strong!

    This is pretty solid.  Plated Beetle was played a bit in a higher power level meta than this, and this gives 2 more health.  It does have a condition but it's one that any druid deck that wants lifegain will likely always be meeting.  


    Not sure it sees play right now but it should if druid gets some good cards.

    Thanks, I hate it.


    I'm not a huge fan of quest druid and I don't like this approach to shoring up its weakness, which is supposed to consist of 4 turns of sitting on your ass. This kind of efficiency makes it impossible for aggressive decks to even get a dent in the druid before all the yucky double choose one shenanigans come out.

    Goood 2 drop for both treant druid and the ebiggen or any kind of late game druid. Really nice stats and an effect, druids shouldn't have problem utilizing.

    This does looks playable in Malygos Quest Druid when cards like Ferocious Howl rotate.

    Looks really good. Better than Plated Beetle most of the time.

    Decent armor gain for druid, so much like a warrior card
