The Herald I can see being a great card with death rattle synergy. The Tauren tho....kinda a meh card at 4 mana. I could see more use if the slime it summons had taunt (a cheaper sludge belcher)
How about a couple of on the board when you play ?
Herald is even better in Wild than Standard given all the good Naxxramas deathrattles but, in Standard you still have , , and as some excellent targets.It would be great fun with if she could actually survive the turn she's played!
I think Herald is little OP for 6 mana.
Have you guys thought about the synergy it has with C`Thun buff cards? Copy Twilight Elder and more C`Thun buffs!Let's hope there's more cards like Twilight Elder featured in this expansion.
Volazj looks like a helluva fun card to play and theorycraft with. Infested Tauren...... meh... gimped belcher is gimped. Belcher has 11 stat points with 2 taunts thrown in for 5 mana, This guy has 9 stat points with 1 taunt for 4 mana. Can't wait to see what the real anti-aggro tools will be.
For those with short memory, Volazj's mechanic came from a past Tavern Brawl - Miniature Warfare.
A card very much like this was featured in one of Kripp's made up card videos (Volazj).
Infested Tauren: I guess we were spoiled by Belcher, but this card doesn't come close to fulfilling the same role. As a comparison, you're paying an extra mana over to get taunt on the first body, and an extra health on the second - I think in most cases people would rather just play the Golem.Volajz: interesting card. Obviously the main thing you care about with the cards you're creating are abilities. Half decent deathrattles will be desirable, as will effects like Emp, Rag and Paletress. It can form a fun little combo with Brann where it copies the stuff on your board twice, though that means if you have anything more than 2 minions (and 1 of those minions will be Brann anyway) some will get wasted. Could be fun to play in wild along side and , as the copies that are spawned are arguably better than the originals.
I can see being fairly powerful with two regular minions on board simply to get two vanilla 1/1 tokens as battlecry. With a deathrattle you probably only need one single minion to get value. Ofcourse people imagine their magic christmas land with mini ragnaros/ysera but I think those occations will be rare, but tokens shouldn't be scoffed at.
fun looking card. still super situational.
