They just remove this with a spell, and if you have both watch posts then they probably have mana for big AOE

Better than the other watch tower.
token generator, probably good for token strategies with the other watch post
Watch posts, taunts, minion buffing, silence sigils...
Let's get weird.

This could actually be annoying to classes like Rogue that likes to play many low cost minions. But it's mostly useless against mage/warlock.
Better than the other watchtowert. But not that much better

kind of a soft taunt.
I don't know if I can see where they are trying to go with these posts.
Interesting design but not sure if it will be played. Too slow
If you could have both Watchtowers as once, way better. Neither is great on its own.

Wonder what Alliance Barracks version will be.
Its not entirely impossible that this becomes one of the most hated card in this expansion. Play this on 3 and your opponent is forced to throw everything they have into it or play no minions to deny you value. With 5 health, its likely to survive a good deal of spell removals, and with 3 attack its likely to kill anything trading into it around turns 3-5.
One of the best watch post cards, if not the best. I mean there's only 2 of them at time of writing :)
Arena says yes, constructed is unsure. I still like the flavor.
Struggle with Heroic Galakrond's Awakening? I got your back :
Better than the other Watch Tower, but still not good.
Not good against mages or priest but definitely could do some damage against aggro decks
Mor'shan Watch Post is definitely the better of the two Watch Posts. Getting a bunch of 2/2s is just generally better than getting one or two small buffs, and your opponent is way more likely to be playing some minions over spells.
This is probably not a good idea, but one deck that might like this is Silence Priest. Turn 3 play Mor'shan Watch Post. Your opponent plays one or two minions on turn 4, giving you some extra value. Turn 4 play Focused Will and now your Watch Post is a 3/8 that can trade along with those extra 2/2s. You don't get more 2/2s, but the first pass already got you some decent tempo.
This is a very, very, very good card to play on 3. How many cards can remove it at that mana cost? Shadow Word: Pain is gone, so just Devolving Missiles and . . . just that? Coin into Coerce, maybe?
When you play a Control deck, you're always weighing whether it's worthwhile to take face damage from the ickle tokens or use your board clear, whether you spend resources to save health or spend health to save resources. Just playing this card on curve sets an unprepared (and as discussed, they will almost always be unprepared (thanks Illidan)) opponent back two turns. One turn to kill Mor'shan Watch Post, and then one turn to kill the tokens that were generated in the process.
Honestly, looking at this card fries my brain. It'll be a core card to a whole host of archetypes, like Tar Creeper but better.
The better of the two watch towers for sure. In a world where Lackeys were still around, this would be backbreaking. As is, we'll have to see if the meta is sufficiently dependent on playing minions.
