    Wow, that looks super strong! If you drop this on a board with taunts, your opponent's in Big trouble! 

    Double the pride, double the fall.

    lmao, rip control. This is actually just op. If your deck depends on spells for removal this is game over. Why does it give itself Untargetable?

     

    number one nerf candidate guaranteed

    I tried having fun once.

    It was awful.

    can be either useless or devastating depending on matchup if you are getting beaten by priest, mage or rogue run this.

    weapon/rush classes can go around this though.

    This card hits control Mage and Priest HARD.  Most other classes have cheap AoE, Rush minions, or weapons to get around this effect, but some decks are gonna just lose once this hits the board.  4 health is a lot to deal with if this thing hides behind a taunt or two and could be an extremely strong tech card.

    It's a strange card, but I think I like it. There are some matchups where this will be game winning, and there are others where this will just be a 3 mana 2/4.

    It's highly matchup dependant, and will rely on certain decks that can't deal with this effect being good in order to see play.

    This post is discussing the wild format.

    The down-vote is an 'I disagree' button, not an insult.

    Very powerful if you have a board ready. And if not, it will protect itself and help you build a board. I imagine this will be a card people will have to consider when adding any kind of spell-based removal in their deck.

    If this card existed 2 years ago, it probably would have been beyond busted.  Amazing how times have changed.  It is still very good, but there is still a lot AOE, summons, and random removal that will keep this card in check.  Look for this card to get a lot better at the next rotation when there is a smaller card pool.

    Haha, better Wee Spellstopper. With how much AoE there is, the effect isn't as strong as it could be, although it will still be annoying for your opponent to deal with sometimes. I'm a bit doubtful of it seeing play though since it requires you to control a few decent sized minions before it really gets good value.

    I assume that it has 'elusive' itself, or otherwise this is hot trash.

    If your opponent can't clear your board the last turn, you make it even less likely they can do so this turn.

    Basically turns rogue, warrior, and priest into a shishkebab of having cards that cannot be played. I can see this eventually being nerfed if it turns out that it makes priest unplayable in all shapes and form. Aside from the possible priest grief, this has potential to just change deck building in hearthstone altogether.

    I can see team5 changing the description to 'your other minions' at some point. Keep all your copies folks, this one's broken as hell.

    Very strong - Zoo Decks will defenitely play this - but i also see some use in other decks.

    Previously, this card would have been mediocre, but with all the new spells and spell damage coming up, it will be very useful. AOE will be even more powerful now.

    This is just OP AF if you ask me. Why didn't they make Robes of protections text "your other minions can't be targetted by spells or hero powers"? This will see play in nearly every aggro deck. Be smart and save copies of this card everyone, cuz it's gonna go on the nerf-list. Pretty sure no-one wants to risk losing out on free dust.

    I like this ability, but I fail to understand how this is OP - opponent can still use board clears on your weak zoo minions. Or he can just target this one first - 4 hp is not hard to kill and then go after the rest of your board with spells and hero powers. Or just use board clear. Or just Zephry's. 

    Cool ability, but nothing like game breaking, in my opinion.

    Shameless power creep is shameless (and yes, I will be posting this exact same text on similar power creeping cards).

    Remember Wee Spellstopper? Yeah, that's the not busted version of this card. That being said, this is more busted on arena, where AoE is less common.

    Rating cards on coolness factor rather than predicting power because I like screwing up rating averages (and because I suck at predicting real power levels, but we'll ignore that LUL)

    Strong effect, but maybe it's not enough. This block only hero power and targhet spell but right now we have a lot of aoe and battlecry that destroy/damage minion

    Maybe the worst card in the set?
