Gellrin of the Gallows

A slightly tougher Jinlak Nightfang with some tech power. If they would kill him with an ability, just turn one of their quests face down. If the opponent is stupid enough to target him with the first link in a Chain Lightning, turn one of their quests face down and watch the Lightning fizzle. Clearly the 2-cost beatstick of choice for a Horde rush deck.

Rocky Kavallion Gellrin of the Gallows

I kind of like Gellrin, he seems like a fairly good card for his cost and can probably take down 1-2 creatures
before his eventual death. Then, when everything is all said an done, you can remove him from play and stop one
of your opponents face-up Quests going off (since that is all you would use it for). I know it isn't a game
breaking affect, but the minor things are what counts, especially in a game that is fairly new.

Limited: 4/5
Constructed: 3/5
Casual: 5/5
Raid: 1/5
COTD Review- February 15th- Gellrin of then Gallows

I don't really like this guy his stats are good for a 2 drop I guess and his effect can screw an opponent, but most of the time it wont even matter since they chose the Quest to flip face down, AND you have to remove him from the game I might like him more if you just had to exhaust a few resources.

Overall I guess hes ok.

Constructed 2.5/5
Casual 3/5

Today we look at the Horde Ally known as Gellrin of the Gallows.
Gellrin of the Gallows:
2 Cost
3 Attack(Shadow)
2 Health
Ability: Remove Gellrin of the Gallows from the game -> Target Player turns one of his quests face-down.
Stat wise for it's cost, Gellrin has among some of the best I've seen. 3 attack 2 health on a two drop is even better than some of the three drops we have in the game at the current moment. His ability, however, is questionable to say the least.
For removing Gellrin from the game, target player turns a quest of his face-down. Normally, your opponent will just turn a quest that he doesn't need face-down and keep the essential ones up, thereby being just a major thorn in the side rather than it being anything truly damaging. If they only have one quest face-up and they have the mana for it, they can just respond by completing the quest and turning it down, thereby interrupting Gellrin's ability and making the fact that he's removed from game completly worthless. However, Gellrin has a couple uses in my eye, and that's for quests that have a specific cost other than paying your "mana" for them. For example, Torek's Assault, Tooga's Quest, and Counterattack! all get severly messed up if you drop a Gellrin at the appropriate time and remove him to get rid of the quest. Bear in mind, however, that that needs to be your opponents' only face-up quest.
In my opinion, if the card said "Target Players turns Target Quest face-down", the card would see a lot more play. Myself personally, I've never seen this card in any format.
Sealed:3/5. Stats are good for a two drop, but the ability doesn't quite have the luster than it should, even in Sealed.
Constructed:2/5. Again, he would be played mainly for his stats, but I would probably take Guardian Steelhorn over Gellrin of the Gallows as a two drop.
Casual:3/5. It's a nice card to mess around with, but there's better out there.
Raid:2/5. I haven't done much with raid structures, but I assume it would be the exact same as in constructed.
