    I saw a post with a similar topic for another card game, and I think it would be fun to do a similar thing for Hearthstone on the forum.  I will start, let’s put a card you underestimated and one you overestimated from expansion reveals as compared to how it actually played out in the meta.  If you only have a card in one of these categories just post that one.


    Underestimated: Walking Fountain Card Image

    I thought it was going to be way too slow to see play and that you would often lose to aggro before having a chance to play it but it actually saw play in a lot of control shamans and was considered a powerful card.

    Overestimated:Da Undatakah Card Image

    I thought it was going to be a powerful late game card in deathrattle decks, copying 3 deathrattles and having a large impact.  But it turned out to barely see play in the meta, it is only used in fun and meme level decks but not in any meta decks.


    Which cards did you underestimate and overestimate and what was your reasoning at the time?

    Nice Idea, and i guess there are lots of Cards to choose from :) 

    the 2 cards i can think of right now are:

    Underestimated: Barricade Card Image

    I personaly thought that this will not see much play, but so far almost every Warrior Deck i used or played against showed me how wrong i was about that one. Because usualy you get 2 Minions out of that. And a 4 Mana Summon two 2/4 with Taunt is at least decent if not pretty good :)

    Overestimated: Glide Card Image

    Well i guess almost the whole community Overestimated that card. Everyone thought this will be bonkers ant the ultimate combo destroyer - not sure how much play it realy saw but i personaly saw it only once !

    I definitely underestimated Crabrider. Turns out cheese paladin is a deck which this guy slots right into it as both removal and a massive threat if it's paired with two Murloc Warleader.

    Overestimate would be Ace Hunter Kreen. Thought that card would go into most demon hunter and hunter decks. But eventually it only saw some play in highlander hunter, I think? Before Rexxar decided that face is the place with his highlander deck too and opted for a much faster build. I guess demon hunters never really needed him since it didn't really fit with their gameplan?
