So, ive been playing a lot of gauntlet recently, and im actually surprised on some of the cards that Shim’Zar brought. Basically, because a lot of these cards dont see any play in constructed, but become actually really strong in Gauntlet.
And thought i always play a lot there, new expansions bring that fresh and unique sense that just feels so good!
Personally, i got some surprises with magmar:
thumping wave is the obvious one, working as a finisher AND removal got me some out some difficult situations.
Natures confluence: i just love this card in gauntlet, summoning 4 units out of nowhere in this mode can get out of hand for the opponent, specially if this gives you rex or gro.
Mandrake is just awesome too for keeping up the pressure!
Some other cards i liked or plain love to play:
Battle pets are really good in general terms, the fact that they have higher stats help a lot in terms of not only face damage but trading, which is a really importante resource in gauntlet.
Golden Mantela is nothing extraordinary, but refills your hand and board, and it ccan give you oni which is extremely annoying here.
Rawr … gosh, loved playing him, but hated it when on the opposite side. Really really strong in gauntlet, gives you a lot of value
So, have you been playing gauntlet post shimzar? what are your opinions? Which cards surprised you? Have you been dissapointed by any?
