    Now I understand, Demon Hunter is supposed to be a card that uses Health as a ressource, draws a lot of cards and utilizes demons, and to compensate they get a bunch of efficient healing.

     

    NOW WHY THE FUCK DOES WARLOCK ALWAYS HAVE TO BEG FOR SCRAPS?

    "oh no, we can't give Warlock healing, that would completely offset their intended weakness and allow for abusive strategies"

    so yeah, let's completely ignore that and give a tempo oriented sm0rc class with almost infinite card draw also supreme defensive tools, what could possibly go wrong?

    I tried having fun once.

    It was awful.

    The intended weakness of demon hunter is card generation, not healing, and demon hunter is going to take way more damage.. are you really mad at a senjin with lifesteal?

    Card generation is basically just draw for classes that aren't allowed to draw (see Priest)

    I'm not so much mad at the card itself, which is mostly just decent...I'm mad because it would have fixed so many of Warlock's problems, but instead all of that support is shoved into Warlock 2.0.

    It just seems really stupid that they are obviously not afraid to print strong healing options for a class that needs to take damage to be relevant, but hold back completely when it comes to the class that's historically awful whenever they don't have solid healing options, while also continuusly nerfing said class by removing some of their most syneergistic cards (Mountain and Molten Giant for instance).

    I don't wanna have to play Dragon Warlock for the rest of the year just because they won't introduce proper healing options ouutside of Nether Breath

    I tried having fun once.

    It was awful.

    fair enough, I didn't really consider that.

    Maybe they factured that into the equation.

    Absolutely fantastic card. Going to see a lot of play from this one. Demon Hunter is shaping up real nice here, excited to play it.

    Senjin with lifesteal... Poor senjin getting powercreeped. 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.

    The powercreep on Sen'jin Shieldmasta is OK, since this is a class card. And DH will need way to restore health if he uses his hero power to clear minions.

    (...)

    .. are you really mad at a senjin with lifesteal?

    When rationalized like that, it is hard to stay mad.

    Solid card. Powercreep is unfortunate, but since Sen'jin is neutral (and Basic too), I guess this is fine. DH is going to need both the taunt and healing.

    The powercreep is real... but also justified. Lifesteal is kinda the ingredient DH are needing the most.

    Feels like a filler card..gotta give everyone some kind of Shieldmasta with a bit of adjustment..in this case lifesteal is the adjustment.

    Like Zilliax, it's a strong midgame card that will both slow down your opponent's aggression and restore your health total. Will see play in any midrange or control DH deck.

    For a class in desperate need of healing, this seems like a must-play for any deck outside of straight "I win or I die" Aggro.

    Not a bad card, it is a demon, it blocks damage, it gains you life, there is nothing to hate about it. This card is sort of like Rotten Applebaum, or Khartut Defender. I think any card that has taunt plus some other defensive mechanic is worth considering in any slow deck.

    While I do enjoy the fact that DH is looking to be a very versatile class, it does worry me that they may end up just being way too strong!  Which also makes me hope I get nothing but golden DH cards to wait for the impending nerfs if they are OP

    Quick!  Someone give me something clever to write here.
