    They're pushing the minions bumping into each other. Ogremancer just made an impact. This also seems like if you're winning, win more. Will be fun to try.

    Yeah... they get +1/+1 before getting a Twisting Nether

    Not even comparable to Ogremancer, because you need to be way ahead on board for this to be impactful

    I do not think the effect is good enough, especially because this unit cannot attack and  takes up a spot on the board.

    Too expensive, and the effect is not useful. 1 star...

    I'm not seeing this making a great impact.

    Other tower seems a lot better.

    Cool design but I'm not sure if it will ever be played

    Hmm. I really like the flavor. It's a bit like Never Surrender! but not Secret, and it can happen multiple times. If you opponent can deal with it on board, it's crap. But it they can't ...

    It does have huge amounts of health, but will likely be prized only as another watch post. Ogremancer is the better counter against spell heavy decks, and the fact is that most decks you see in standard will likely be aggro, and aggro decks rarely play any spells.

    If it had taunt, then we're talking. But sadly it doesn't.

    The theorycraft season is officially on with this one ; Could build a deck around it, and watch your opponent pressed to remove. Seems like an interesting design to say the least, and the fact that is neutral means that everyone can have their variations.

    Hah, I think this is the first 1-star card to be revealed. +1/+1 doesn't matter against a Lightning Storm, and for those decks like Rogue which Ogremancer is great against, having the board to make this useful is either useless or means that you're already winning.

    Better call Thrall!

    The Kargal deck looks like a huge meme, so this is probably a terrible card. In a token/aggro deck where you want this kind of buff, this card is a non-starter. It's a "4 mana do nothing" card that comes packaged with the hopes that your opponent will spend their mana buffing your guys. Maybe it's an okay tech card to resist AOE (kind of like Never Surrender!), but 4 mana is a lot to spend for that kind of insurance.

    At least Blizzard made it an Epic so we can get more Dust when we disenchant it. 

    No, wait! Watch Towers are the perfect counter to Sigil of Silence! Nevermind.

    This could be good against spell decks so it seems both watch posts are polar opposites.

    Eh. Ogremancer burst onto the scene because it acts as a comeback or stabilization tool, this is a win-more card that is flat out dead in some matchups.
