    Just as Kripp said: without Magnetize this is significantly weaker.

    taunt is a nice upside for Armagedillo shenanigans, but it's just seems very unreliable. Sure it's basically a buffed Rotten Applebaum, but that card wasn't really all that popular either.

     

    I tried having fun once.

    It was awful.

    No more Dr. Boom and the mechs are suddenly a lot weaker. Otherwise, I like the idea.

    Rotten Applebaum but a mech that gives armor. Rotten Applebaum was used A LOT before Khartut Defender was added. I'm calling it right now, this card will be used A LOT. (Alongside Khartut Defender)

    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.

    Word for word, the first thing that crossed my mind when checking that card.

    I think this is still pretty good, even with most of the magnetic mechs rotating out. A Control Warrior deck could definitely use this.

    This card would be nice if there would still be magnetize minions in standard. But without this mechanic, it is rather weak.

    Mechs are basically powerless now there are no more warrior cards that care about mechs.

    we saw such a card before it's Rotten Applebaum, which saw small amounts of play.

    there are other armor generators compared to this and without magnetize this is probably not going to see any play.

    A better Rotten Applebaum and this can be buffed in some way. Good card and it will see play for sure since Rotten Applebaum was staple in some deck

    Interesting card! Too bad we can't magnetize anymore in standard. It's playable on it's own and could be life-saving with some buffs.

    Would be very strong if Dr. Boom, Mad Genius and all of his magnetic friends were still in standard, but they won't be so this is not strong.

    I LOVE this card, but this is coming from the perspective of someone who plays a lot of Fire Plume's Heart Warrior. Scrap Golem is better than Rotten Applebaum, which was already a mainstay in the deck, and can power-creep it even further via cards like Into the Fray, Zilliax, or Galakrond, the Unbreakable.

    A better Apfelbaum for warriors. Probably sees some play, especially with the potential with buffs.

    This post is discussing the wild format.

    With the Magnetic keyword rotating this won't be as ridiculous in standard as it can be in wild.

    Buffing it with Armagedillo or Enrage can still allow for a nice trade and armor gain, however

    Nice tool but like others said, better with Dr. Boom, Mad Genius and all of the cards in Boomsday, especially magnetics.

    Support for taunt warrior. With Into the Fray this will be really good.

    I like this card. It is a defensive card that gives you more defense when it dies. It works with the taunt warrior stuff they did in Saviors of Uldum, or mech stuff in wild. 

    Carrion, my wayward grub.

    Looks pretty nice, nothing too amazing though. The extra armor’s always appreciated.

    Who needs consistency when you could have fun?
