Just a Thread to discuss cards that REALLY no one uses but kinda work (its a new Expansion and there are alot of cards that coud be awsome…when you let them)
(Tested in Inner Oasis Vet and Lockdown Lyonar)
Just a Fun little Guy wich has the critical 2 health syndrom. Well as i mentioned above is Inner Oasis vet pretty good for him. Stoping giant dudes and protecting your Araki Hunter with an Cheese dervish buys you some time…
Lockdown Lyonar is just a good place for him because all those sticky high health minions. Suntide Maiden and Woo-Wen is pretty annoying and anything with Forcefield becomes a nightmare. Still you woud say that Lyonar has enough provoke but…
…a Anti Aggro card wich isnt that bad and opens up some interesting disignchoices when making a Provoke deck…
(Tested in Lyonar and Zoo decks)
Now this one was just something i was testing if it is viable in Budget decks…i am very surprised that he hold up. Gets some interesting Synergy with Lion-Heart-Blessing and is another good target for Wood-Wen.
He is like a bigger Jaxi, in the sense of something that you dont want to waste dispell on and dont want to kill.
…very solid 4 drop actually for Factions that need a decent 4 drop (Lyonar…sometimes Songhai…even Vanar when combined with Mark) might be just a B-class card but sometimes beats Diolitas or Primus by a little bit (but really needs a deck that allows such an low-value card…but isnt a slow card due to the akward tempo gain when your opponent trys to remove it.
(Has its place in Battlepet-decks…mostly Pokemon-Starhorn)
Another akward 4 drop that surprisingly works.
Battlepet decks (focusing on Starhorn-decks) dont bother about sticky minions…thay just need a good way to spam Battlepets and keep the hand full.
So the only thing wich makes Golden Mantelly not suck is that it replaces itself and gives a rendom battlepets wich either cost one and is just way better then any other battlepet at one mana or is a faction Battlepet wich is always 2 mana and useally better then your normal battlepet…
…Just works because a huge 4 drop isnt better then a Minion that gives you a card back and a value-battlepet (srly…the token battlepets are preeeetty good…the only thing wich makes this viable)
So? Any other minions that need some appreciation? Like Master Zendo…or the Monkey King…stuff i didt test yet but seem interesting…any thoughts?
