    It needs a strong deck building around this legendary. Oh, I miss the old Cubelock days. Maybe locks are getting some strong big demons this patch? It would even fit the Scholomance-theme.

    Guess that confirms that big demons will be the Warlock theme.

    Granted this is very low, but we do have The Dark Portal to make it work (also Quest)

    If you think about it this is basically Dragonqueen Alexstrasza

    I tried having fun once.

    It was awful.

    Enhanced Dreadlord is currently the best thing that this can hit, but it otherwise doesn't seem too good.  There are some other decent demons that you might run in the same deck like Aranasi Broodmother or maybe even Dread Infernal, but the lack of good big demons in Warlock makes this card unlikely to see play as it currently stands.

    I personaly realy like this Big Demon Archetype so i'll defenitely gonna give this one a chance. Seems a little slow at first but we have some tools to cheat out big minions like The Dark Portal for example. 

    Also, Warlock has good removal and Healing so i guess you can take it to the lategame for some Big Demon Shenanigans :)

    Really bad synergy with warlock's prime.

    Both cards supports Big demon archetype, but that one negates the battlecry of the prime.

    "from you hand and deck"

    What does this mean exactly?

    "from you hand OR deck" or does it summon two demons?

    Seems really weak to me, given how late that effect actually comes into play

    Who needs consistency when you could have fun?

    Seems good to me, the big demons control warlock can run currently have taunt so 2 taunt minions for 9 mana and a 7/7 is good.. just playing those Aranasi Broodmothers that are stuck in you hand is great deal.. also it's a good card to discount with quest.

    Here's to hoping they at least considered wild cubelock before printing Voidlord or Doomguard 2.0...

    Haven't we already seen legendary warlock cards which did nothing but to (re-) summon demons?

    A big swing card for renolock, but unlike n'zoth and bloodreaver, this one puts the cards into play instead of making copies. I think that if renolock needed more swing turns, they'd run kanrethad over this.

    As a 9 mana card, this definitely won't go anywhere else, unless a specific combo needs to pull two demons into play?

    This post is discussing the wild format.

    Yet another card that I think'll look great in Gold! I'm already imagining that swirling purple fel magic. Although it's expensive, it's potentially on the level of pre-nerf Alexstrasza in terms of swing. If your deck only runs thicc demons, having 3 big bodies on board isn't something to scoff at. Of course, you don't get to discover the Demons, but I'm assuming good ones have been chosen to include in the deck already. Will wait and see what Demons this expansion brings us.

    Started playing HS in May, 2015. The bad news: I missed the excitement of 'Naxx out?' and GvG. The good news: I never met an Undertaker.

    I wish it targeted Taunt or Deathrattle instead of Demons.

    Demons? Demons...

    It's a tool for a "Big Demon Lock" or a "Demon Tutor" for some combo that don't exit right now. Not too strong for 9 mana but in Wild can be used for sure

    If only this didn't have negative synergy with Kanrethad Prime, it would have been perfect.

    But there's still stuff this can do with Enhanced Dreadlord, so there's potential here somewhere. Maybe there would be better big demons down the line that can justify this massive 9 mana investment.

    Pretty good, especially in wild. Ironically, it's Demon Hunter, not Warlock, who cold really abuse this card in standard right now.
