Ally – Blood Elf Paladin
3-> Prevent all combat damage that would be dealt
to and dealt by target friendly ally this turn.
Ok my jaw hit the floor when I pulled one of these
at the pre-release and there is a freaking good
reason for it… THIS SHOULD HAVE BEEN A RARE and
should have been their race specific ally. Ok I
understand they have to populate the game with the
new races but wow they went a little overboard with
this dude. OK this guys closest relative in the last
set that I can compare him to is Vaerik Proudhoof
who was a 4 drop for a 5/3 THAT’S IT. So for the
same price we get a protector that for the right
price can’t be killed in combat
Ok now I pulled 2 of him in my second round of the
pre-release and I knew from there I was playing
horde because this guy just isn’t fun to play
against. First off he is a big protector and can
destroy many a large ally and do a lot of damage to
many heroes and that’s where his strength is, he can
do anything and he does it all well. If your playing
lets say horde paladin this is probably one of the
allies you will stack in your deck, its like Parvink
why wouldn’t you? I think the real silliness comes
from his activation power, pay 3 to prevent all
damage dealt in a battle… on a scale of 1-10
that’s a freaking 11 ability especially for a
As an attacker he gets an “A” grade because he is a
4 drop for a 5 attack. As a defender he gets an “A+”
grade because he blocks he saves people and he
potentially kills whatever is bothering you. As a
Support character he gets an “A+” for his ability
because its so very usable.
Sealed (5): Just wow in this format solid card.
Constructed (5): This card is going to see a lot of
tournament play and wow is he going to annoy people.
Casual (3): I don’t like playing competitive cards
in casual play sucks all the fun out of it, avoid
using him unless you are playing race wars in which
case is the Blood Elf poster boy.
Onyxia (4): Great ally to attack with and block
with, makes the dragon pay every step of the way.
Lazy Peon (5): Probably the best 4 drop for horde in
