    Decent minion. Could see it in Libram Paladin, but I'm not sure any deck actually needs this.

    I tried having fun once.

    It was awful.

    isn't this card just overstated? 4/6 taunt for 4?

    some dragon decks are running the big fairy dragon so this might replace that.

    Pretty decent minion.  I think it has the most likelihood of seeing play in Priest or Paladin since they can buff it further, have dragon synergy, and have good minions to hide behind it.

    4 mana 4/6 taunt is a nice statline, but enabling spellburst on curve will be quite demanding.

    As it stands, I think that this card will often only be consistently taunt-able on turns when a boardclear or a stronger taunt could be played.

    This post is discussing the wild format.

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

    On par with Twilight Guardian.  That card only requires you to hold a dragon though instead of committing more resources to it.  Priest will want this card if more copies of it can be spawned.  Otherwise, I think it will be mediocre.

    It is a dragon, and that is something. After spellburst it becomes straight up better than the Yeti, and that is also something. I think this card might see play in a deck that wants dragons, or a deck very desperate for a 4-drop. However, usually after turn 3, just having stats isn't enough.

    Pretty decent card in any spell based deck, which they've been pushing this set. I'd say it has a pretty decent chance of seeing play.

    Its a 3/6 for 4. Almost certainly going to survive on curve, and if spellbursted, it becomes a nasty taunt minion.

    Paladin, priest and maybe warrior can make full use of it. Its a dragon too, so maybe in hunter? but dragon hunter doesn't always have the means to trigger the spellburst.

    Good card overall and it also is a Dragon ! I guess this works good in Libram Paladin but i guess this will also find it's way in lots of different decks not only because it is a dragon but 4 Mana 4/6 Taunt is pretty good.

    So it has like semi taunt? Still I think a 5 mana taunt is just better.

    Decent minion, potentally strong arena card. Maybe for some budget anti-aggro tools, it can work.

    Good minion for libram paladin, but also good in dragon priest. this is actually Twilight Guardian with +1 atk. This will certainly see play.

    Solid card! Good stats without buffing it, but then you can activate the buff right away or on a later turn.

    3/6 dragon on 4 is pretty good tempo, not to mention it's a good follow up to Stormhammer. Increasing that followup consistency for the weapon without sacrificing curve is deceptively powerful in Highlander Hunter. The spellburst is a nice addition, especially since Hunter is getting cheap spells like Demon Companion and Adorable Infestation. I don't think this sees play outside of Highlander Hunter because this seems only good in dragon decks that care about playing dragons for tempo and the statline might be too slow for Dragon Hunter.

    For glory, honor, and gold!

    So many good cards are being introduced in this expansion. And nothing is rotating. I doubt this will find a spot in any deck.

    Decent minion but this need his spellburst to be ok and that slow down the card. Avarage for standard probably
