    Oh Greybough, your synergy has arrived. 

    At this point I have spent too much money on these games to quit. 

    Now pass me another pack, and lets see what I pull.

    Interesting synergy with Greybough, but not sure if deck would be any good

    Very powerful with strong deathrattles like Scrapyard Colossus or Smug Senior because it just summon another copy, yes without taunt, but with the deatrattle.

    I guess it works that way, very strong imho

    Bad card with potential though, if only the mana cost was lower or the effect permanent or better stats.

    Could be played with deathrattle minions like Teacher's Pet to maximize value.

    OBLIVION!

    Huh, it's definitely a board extension card. Not necessarily has to synergize with greybough, just getting an extra teacher's pet would be nice.

    Looks good but not sure if this will make it - maybe some kind auf Taunt / Greybough Druid will emerge ... 

    Still decent tough !

    Just not convinced on this one. It only gives value if

    a) your opponent has no option other than killing a taunt of yours to get to this

    b) you have a taunt that you were going to trade away anyways

    It's not bad by itself, but it's not nearly enough of a payoff to make me actually build a mediocre midrange deck around it.

    Too bad honestly, I was hoping for some great Beast support, but I guess that one's gonna come from the regular cards instead.

    I tried having fun once.

    It was awful.

    Looks decent to good in the right deck. At least it should be protected from enemy minions most of the time, given its synergy.

    Here's the taunt archetype support we were expecting, though I'm not sure it's strong enough as is for this deck to be competitive right now and need some more good cards to exist. I might be wrong though, time will tell.

    Taunt board with massive payoff if greybough lives past one turn. Aurbor up as a finisher and druid is looking good so far.

    Taunt Druid getting some serious love this expansion. This one might turn out to be too slow as you definitely want to play this behind a (preferably big) Taunt to get that sweet value, but that might take too much time to set up.

    Given all the 4 mana Legendarys the Kazakus decks will be cheap.

    I see potential for this card, given you have some good Deathrattle + Taunt minions.

    Wait, do they want us to play Taunt Druid?  Or Rez Taunt Druid?    

    Could certainly pair nicely with deathrattle taunts...

    As others have said, it´s a great addition to Taunt deck, we just need to see, if it will be viable enough this season.

    Summon taunt, summon taunt without taunt to resummon taunt.

    Taunt is druid's thing now.

     

     

    Hadronox is pleased.

    There are a lot of value combos with this. I think what will determine if this gets played is how consistent those combos are.
