Bhenn Checks-the-Sky
Cost: 2
Attack: 2
Health: 1

When Bhenn Checks-the-Sky enters play, you may exhaust target ally.

Welcome to the Tauren week, so let’s get out our Wardrums and start with Bhenn Checks-the-Sky.

Personally I prefer Voss Treebender over this card, it has a lower cost, and it’s effect is re-usable.
So just ignore this card, and look on to tomorrows card.

Sealed: 1/5
Constructed: 1/5
Casual: 1/5
Raid: 1/5

See you on the Battlefield
Red Comet Bhenn Checks-the-Sky

Another short one today kids . . .

Use Rak Skyfury he's cheaper and has a better effect. Exhausting an ally is nice as is his instant ally status but, really for my money I'd prefer a bit more in the health department. If he could exhaust a hero I think I'd like him more.

Sealed: 2/5
Constructed: 3/5
Raid: 1/5

If I could give him a zero here I would.
Oooo Tauren Week... if it ever rains on Thunder Bluff... does that make it a Tauren-tial downpour?? :)

Bhenn Checks-the-Sky (Horde)

2 cost, Instant Ally- Tauren Druid, 2 ATK (Nature), 1 Health

When Bhen Checks-the- Sky enters play, you may exhaust target ally.

Hmmm... what fun do I see here? Instant Ally? This can be super fun. As an instant ally, you can play him whenever you have priority on ANY turn. If he had protector, that could be scary cool... but almost as good, he can exhaust an ally when you play him.

Many people would look at this guy and miss the 'instant' part of his text, and say "Hey, this guy bites... why pay 2 for him? At 2 cost, this guy can be well worth it. In sealed, if you go horde, you should play him. In constructed, if you play a rogue deck, he can come in quite handy. In casual, he's absolutely fun to irritate your opponent with. In raid... well... in ONY raid he isn't quite so useful. Maybe in MC... but I haven't seen any cards from that yet.

Sealed: 4/5 If you play Horde in sealed, this guy can be a BIG pain in the butt for your opponent.

Constructed: 3/5 Here, he isn't QUITE as cool as in sealed, but by no means bad. In the right deck, this guy, either early or late game cuz of his ability, he can be used with some degree of success.

Casual: 3/5 While not amazingly powerful, like I said, he is GREAT for annoying people. And casual is all about fun. Annoying other players = fun. :)

Raid (Ony): 1/5 Well... um... exhausting 1 whelp isn't exactly amazing. In this raid, I'm sure you can find better cards for 2 cost to put here.

This week's theme is the mighty Tauren race, and we're starting out with a rather nifty ally out of TDP.

Bhenn Checks-The-Sky
Horde / Instant Ally / Tauren Druid
Cost: 2
ATK: 2
Health: 1
Effect: When Bhenn Checks-The-Sky enters play, you may exhaust target ally.

There's more to this guy than meets the eye.

First off, he's an instant ally, which means he's an ally you can drop on your opponent's turn treated as an instant. This gives Bhenn a slight edge over other Horde 2-drops in regards to speed. There are no Horde 2-drops with ferocity, and if you throw this guy down on your opponent's turn, it's basically just that. He can also be used as an ally interrupt. Is there a big protector in your way? Drop Bhenn and slide right by him. Leeroy coming at you with no damage abilities in your hand? Bhenn can help there, too.

He does have rather week stats for a 2-drop, however, and that plays as his biggest detractor and the reason he isn't seeing more play (that, and Guardian Steelhorn being the preferred 2-drop for Horde). Give him a shot, see how he works for you.

Sealed: 3/5 -- Allies dominate here, and this guy can counter the big ones coming at you.
Constructed: 3/5 -- In the right deck (See: Horde rogues), this guy can serve a 2-for-1 purpose.
Casual: 4/5 -- Anything has its uses in casual.
Raid: 1/5 -- Useless in raids.
W.A.Y.S. Welcome to Tauren week, so saddle up your Kodos.

First off is Bhenn Checks-the-Sky. At first glance Bhenn doesn't look all that great, but upon closer inspection it is discovered that he is an instant ally. Now his effect is more relevant. Bhenn's effect is a one shot, but it really shines because of the instant keyword. You can stop an opposing ally from using an exhaust ability or from attacking. Bhenn's cost isn't too bad. There isn't much difference between 1 health and 2 health.

The low cost is inherently good during the mid to late game where you sometimes have an over abundance of resources, and it combos well with other cards, especially rogue abilities.

Sealed: 4 out of 5 - Good attack and disruption.

Constructed: 3 out of 5 - The arrival of untargetable allies means that his effect won't be as versatile.

Casual: 4 out of 5 - A good, annoying effect to screw your friends with.

Raid: 2.5 out of 5 - You have trouble finding good targets with Bhenn's effect but because he is an instant ally he can be played at the end of Onyxia's turn and can be attack with on your turn.
