This was exactly my thought. I don’t think it’s performance or super useful, but it’s strong against tempo and especially Lyonar/Magmar who like to rely on big, valuable minions. Against Songhai, Vanar or the Abyssian mirror match, it’s pretty bad.
Worthy of being a common. Some will find use for it, especially newer players or in the gauntlet.
There is one thing worth noting about this card. It’s board presence that can be used to create card advantage. In an optimal situation, you trade with a big nasty minion or smack the enemy’s face and kill another minion at the same time. Worst case scenario, it gets transformed or traded into with a lesser minion. Also, it’s prime tiger food.
