    mostly Arena, but technically it's just a slightly weaker Ancient of War on summon, and that card used to be the gold standard for 7-drops back in the day.

    I tried having fun once.

    It was awful.

    Now, this is the big brother of the brawler and the 10hp means - it will almost definitely get 1-2-3 times the attack buff. But still, I am not sure if it's good enough for constructed.

    Maybe you can go for some kind of crazy finisher with bladestorm and something else? Pretty solid/weaker side card.

    This looks like a decent card. Might see play in enrage warrior... if that get's a resurgance.

    RNG is only fun as long as there is a 50/50 chance of getting something really good or trash level of bad. If RNG always results in something good, then it's not fun.

    Filler. Gurubashi Berserker comes out 2 turns earlier and is infinitely more terrifying.

    You hit a few keywords here : Arena, Standard & Back in the day. Time have changed, and meta followed the cycle of time. Maybe this isn't impressive the turned it is played, it is still a pretty huge wall that will force your opponent to silence it or plan their attack sequencing adequately. I find it interesting, and neutral.

    No, this is definitly better, since you have to remove it. Especially if it's buffed, you could build a taunt-enrage deck.

    Arena card/pack filler, too weak.

    feels like an arena card that will never see day light in standard. too costly for a counteractive effect..

    This card is great in arena, but to slow for constructed.

    Not convinced this will find a home, but it's not terrible.

    Very expensive for a pile of taunt stats. Not imagining a world where this can see play outside of exploiting its ability. Even then, other cards are just better to ping several times.

    This post is discussing the wild format.

    Infinitely better than Bonechewer Brawler, that's for sure: at least this one has the hope of being procced more than once before it dies. It's a Gurubashi Berserker that has to be removed; is that good enough for Constructed? I don't know, but I like it anyway.

    This says "Everytime it takes damage" which means that classes with good healing can keep this lady up and just keep increasing her attack. 

    oh heck Druid can use BEES! to give this a +8 attack buff for a 12/6 with taunt

    Can be decent in arena, but in standard? hmm maybe there is a variant of taunt embiggen druid.

    It's a bit slow, but if you can get it to stick around, you might be able to do some sort of wombo-combo with the new Warrior board clear that procs until something dies.

    But with taunt, a relatively low power level, and a seven mana cost, setting that combo up is probably unfeasible.

    Too expensive, even if the effect isn’t that bad. Besides, your opponent could just run their big minion into it first, then the smaller ones

    Who needs consistency when you could have fun?
