    well it does not have a taunt, that would make it better. against aggressive deck u will have to play it, attack probably twice and then get a clear. i'm just not sure how it would work

    Best art in the set imo. They not trying to push duskbreaker into priest again but in warlock. Priest already has lots of 5 drops. Still grta card due to being a dragon.

    Deathrattle and absence of taunt makes this card much less interesting. But effect itself is powerful enough to push opponent to suboptimal trades. In overall still very good control tool.

    5 mana 4/5 is already slow. then you have a deathrattle which is slow aswell. then you have to fulfill a condition. it doesn't have taunt so the enemy could just set up a resistant board and ignore it. i can see it working but for me this is just a veeery slow card

    A worse duskbreaker but can still be playable in deathrattle priest or dragon priest so a pretty decent card. This card makes that dragon in warlock looks more insane

    First of all, really cool name.
    Second, taking in consideration the amount of dragons there are this will probably end up blowing your stuff.
    And even if your opponent does not want to kill it, you can just keep healing it and tackling your opponent minions.
    5/5 for me.

    A one-sided Chillmaw but without the taunt, which I would consider the taunt part to be very important in cards like these. The lower cost is good and the stats are fine. The one sided effect might not matter too much but if you're playing some sort of dragon tempo priest then it's going to be pretty good.

    Thoughts on the inevitable Chronobreaker/Duskbreaker comparison:

    Pros:
    – It only hits enemies
    -It has +1/+2 stats from what Duskbreaker had

    Cons:
    -It’s a deathrattle, not a battlecry
    -It costs one more mana

    To my eyes, this is a midrange card while duskbreaker leaned towards control. The advantage of this is that it’s not as dead a card against a control matchup: with the bigger stats it’s much more of a threat, and its boardwipe wont sabotage your own board like duskbreaker would, so it won’t sit dead in your hand nearly as much. There’s the added synergy of Wretched Reclaimer (which you’d run in a Midrange priest as its a decent body that can heal your minions at worst and synergize with this and other deathrattles in better scenarios) and Shadowy Figure, which once again you can use with this with zero worries of your own board being destroyed.

    So yes, it’s weaker than duskbreaker because of the deathrattle and mana-cost (though being weaker than duskbreaker isn’t horrible because duskbreaker was ridiculously strong), but it also lends itself to a different shell, so THAT’S where the real question of its playability comes in: can a Midrange Dragon priest exist? Playing a dragon/minion package along with invoke cards allows the deck to instantly switch to infinite value against control because of the Priest Galakrond’s hero power. I’m cautiously optimistic.

    This will likely only be good for 1 expansion while Reckless Experimenter still exists but it has serious potential with that

    Pretty good minion. 5 mana for 4/5 plus 3 aoe damage is crazzy. Auto-include in all "dragon priest"

    Slow AOE but since it the effect doesn't kill your own minions its absolutely crazy against aggro. Almost holding aggro decks to ransom over hold two silences or they simply just don't win. The effect is very very slow, but if you're not going to die the next turn you play this then this card is just too much stuff in one.

    Of course, it can get silenced and its not a taunt. And that is probably why this card is unlikely to attract an angry mob demanding for a nerf.

    This is going to be a staple in every priest deck that has dragons. Duskbreaker was hard to deal with already, now for one more mana it hits enemy minions and has a fatter body? Sign me up.

      Duskbreaker was a battlecry. This card being a deathratle makes it much worse. Even if it is played it will most certainly not be on the Duskbreaker level.

        It's a Priest card... it's not hard to trigger a deathrattle in priest.
