    This seems very good. It's situational removal and it won't save you from actually taking the damage, but Paladin always craves removal and this might just be good enough.

    I tried having fun once.

    It was awful.

    Can we just enjoy the fact that the card name is Reckoning, and it looks like he's attacking Lord Kazzak (The infamous demon that caused the recokoning talent to get nerfed due to the "reck bomb" because some paladin figured out how to stack it a ton and one shot a raid boss by himself.)

    Seems good 2 mana destroy a minion is solid. But it's a paladin secret, so i think it might not see that much play. (unless Paladin gets a big pay-off card for secrets like Mysterious Challenger.)

    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.

    It's 1 mana ...

    And Paladin actually has some very strong secrets now. "Get Down" was always great, and Oh My Yogg! is basically a Paladin Counterspell. Even if you choose not to include secrets in your deck, you may be very glad to see it in the Discover pool.

    The best part of this card is that its 1 mana. And while you do have to take the initial hit, paladin has never been short of healing so if that hit doesn't kill then this card simply removes the problem for you. And all for one mana.

    But with paladin's abysmal draw options, it might simply only ever see niche play, much like Oh My Yogg!. Until there are better draw options, even if its only tutor for secrets, this might just never see the light.

    They did a very good job with Paladin, I'm impressed. The only concern I have is no card draw but we shall see what expansions bring us. Besides that Paladin is gearing up for some good decks to come. I like that they replaced the bad secrets and 1 cost spells for something the class needed: Better secrets and dude synergy.

    Will this stop a C'Thun (old and new) after its 3rd ping?

    Nope.

    C'Thun's battlecry deals 1 dmg many times, but never 3 damage.

    By The Holy Light!

    and even if it did the battlecry would still go off anyways
