    Reverse Defile and thus a lot harder to manipulate, basically only worth it against decks with a lot of same statted minions.

    Warrior would have to be very desperate for removal to run this (and Control Warrior doesn't look like it's going to be a thing this expansion)

    I tried having fun once.

    It was awful.

    Reverse Defile

    This is going to be what I call this card.

    In GvG there was a similar warrior spell and I don't think it was that popular/good - otherwise I would have remembered the name.

    Those reprints, T5, those reprints....

    Reverse Defile OR "Kill your opponents board of giants in wild". Great card.

    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.

    Bouncing Blade was less predictable. This is quite a lot better than that (most of the time), and I wouldn't call it a reprint.

    You want removal to be consistent, and this just isn't.  decks are going to be running lackeys, 1/1s and such.  It blows up your own board and doesn't consistently beat your opponents.  

     

    1/5

    Even with a lot of removal leaving, there are better tools than this.

    The wording is quite similar, so the comparison isn't completely far fetched, but the effect is significantly different, distributing dmg evenly will alter the outcome, drastically.

    There's definitely something to this card. It can clear away big minions, but will almost certainly be foiled by smaller minions being on board. Since Warpath is rotating, maybe this card will take its place? it guarantees that something dies at least.

    This card seems way too situational to be worth running it. Warpath was way stronger than this card in my opinion.

    reverse defile, instead of needing scaling hp values, you want them equalized.

    this is like bouncing blade+defile but in the case of CW this can see some play if the board has a lot of high hp minions.

    In my opinion this card is super strong. Sure u can't use it like a Warpath but in a control deck u will set "easly" the board to clear all or almost everything. I think it will be a staple card in warior

    Very strong, will be played in every control warrior deck, especially now that they're losing a bunch of good control cards.

    This is a great card for any Enrange deck, like that you also have to play around it.

    It's an interesting card, wanting the board to be equalized to effectively clear it. Or maybe not, if you have the higher-Health minions. I'm sure someone will find a way to utilize this card to the fullest.

    If you have the time, you should totally check out our weekly Hearthstone card design competitions! :D

    Bouncing Blade + Defile. I would treat this more like a deadly shot than anything else. Probably not great but not unplayable either.

    This post is discussing the wild format.

    The main weakness of this card is that it will often stop to early. It’s very situational, but warrior have synergy with damaged minios and could exploit it.

    I see this not as a control tool, but rather one of the smaller combos run by aggro enrage warrior - just imagine having Frothing Berserker ready to attack and opponent dropping a Bonechewer Vanguard. You cast Commanding Shout and you'll be featured by Trollden.

    This is a nice and cheap removal tool. 

    most boards will usually have health that's roughly the same size, so you're usually guaranteed to remove 2-3 minions with this.

    Really sick with Frothing Berserker and armorsmith
