    Pretty solid body that will be see play in decks with galakrond in it. One of the better invoke cards as the stats is okay and the taunt is nice.

    Let's see, what this do for Galakrond classes:

    Base: 4/5 taunt for 5 +

    • priest: add priest minion to your hand
    • rogue: add lackey to your hand
    • shaman: summon 2/1 rush elemental
    • warlock: summon 2x 1/1 imp
    • warrior: +3 attack to hour hero this turn

    Turns out, this card is preeety good.

    Man fells weird invoke galakrond cards on neutral because 4 classes cannot use the invoke mechanic, so it gonna feel bad when you discover it from some source, but its a great addition for galakrond decks.

      You can't discover any Invoke cards, even in evil classes saddly.

    Seems like Galakrond decks will be viable so this card will be an auto-included in those decks

    This card seems much better than Seal Fate and many other Galakrodn cards. It is weak anyway, and this scares me: it feels like the invocation effect really is valued a lot of mana. The problem is that I don’t get what kind of deck these Galakromd decks want to be: not tempo, because the Invocation cards are super low on tempo; not value, because Galakrond itself doesn’t provide that much value nor the other invocation cards do. Anyway, I think that if Galakrond deck take off, this will probably be included.

    Its alright.

    There might be other better invoking cards, but for now, the best one there is, and therefore, a staple in galakrond decks.

    Shit in arena, just vanilla stats, if it ever shows up there

    Best neutral invoker so far. Very close to a vanilla minnion. It may not find his way into warrior, due to the aggro nature of the deck.

    Best invoke card there is in neutral and likely contender to the best invoke card in the expansion. 4/5 taunts for 5 is already a decent card. Add in a free Galakrond hero power and this is already playable. Add in invoking Galakrond and this will be in every Galakrond deck regardless of tier.

    The only reason this is not busted is because its a taunt and not rush minion.

    Pretty straight-forward.

    Probably gonna be the most-played Invoke-Card

    Really not that bad, just have to remember to take into account that Invoke also gives you the Galakrond hero power of your respective class.

    This card will likely see play in Galakrond decks out of necessity, similar to how C'Thun and his activators were played.

    stat wise it's not bad, but it's not as good for control as say rotten applebaugh
