I strike, I win. It’s 11 damage to the face. Or if they protect, Thunderfury deals its damage BEFORE battle damage happens, so you won’t be taking damage if the protector has 5 or less health. I got this baby along with Herod’s Shoulder in sealed once…good times. Turn 8 Herod’s. Turn 9 Thunderfury. Turn 10 GG. And with Chipper as the weapon hate of choice these days, its gonna stay until that turn 10 more often.

Constructed 4/5

Casual 5/5

Sealed 5/5

Raid 3/5

Thunderfury, Blessed Blade of the Windseeker

Weapon- Sword, Melee (1)

Classes: Hunter, Paladin, Rogue, Warrior

9 cost, 5 strike, 6 ATK (Melee)

When you strike with Thunderfury, chosse up to 5 heroes and/or allies. Your hero deals 5, 4, 3, 2, and 1 nature damage to them, respectivly.

Wow... OK... first off, the title is WAYYYYY to freakin' long... it almost doesn't fit on the card. Second of all: Wow. Ouch. Boom.

The MAJOR drawback to this card is its INSANE cost of 9. But, for its ability, 9 is really a bargain. you spend 5 per turn to do a grand total of 21 damage? Thats a deal and a half. So, it costs 9. If you are playing a stall deck, you can get here without much hassle. Um... can you stall in WoW? As a small note, I have one these, and I'm about to cry cuz I can't find it... maybe its in a deck? Oh, well.

In a Raid, this card can be really fun. You can whack Ony, and then pop off 5 of her Whelps, or smack her for 6, deal 5 more to her, then smite 4 whelps. 11 damage to ANY hero, dragon or otherwise, is nothin' to sneeze at.

Sealed: 2/5 If you get this card, and get it out, it could well win you the game here. But, odds of EITHER happening are slim.

Constructed: 3/5 Again, if you get this card out, it can be a game breaker. Also, there is also some bragging ot be done.. "Yeah, I just dropped a Thunderfury. Thats right, I'm uber". :)

Casual: 4/5 Thunderfury is a great casual card. Again, you get the bragging rights, and since you are with friend, they'll appreciate you bragging more than some random joe at the tourny.

Raid (Onyxia) 4/5 This card can make Ony cry, and it requires FAR less playing that Zin'rokh. And its fun. Have I mentioned that yet? :)
Brian Foster Well, hello all, this is my first card o' the day.

Thunderfury, Blessed Blade of the WIndseeker
Class: hunter, paly, rogue, warrior
Cost: 9 stk: 5 atk:6

When you strike with Thunderfury, choose up to five heroes and/or allies. Your hero deals 5, 4, 3, 2, and 1 nature damage to them, respectively.

although this card is quite expensive to play, i think it's really well worth it in pretty much any format. i'm not going to say put 4 of these bad boys in your deck, cause really, if you get it early game it will just go down as a resource and you will be wishing you had gotten something you can use now.

really as soon as you play this card, unless your opponent can do something about it, it's pretty much game over, because you're not only going to be swinging for 6 every turn after you play it, but you you also have the "chain lighting" effect as well so as soon as you wipe the field, your hitting for 11 every turn, then its only a matter of time before it's game over.

sealed: 2.5/5 might not be as good as it is in other formats, cause of the cost, but still worth playing if you get it.

constructed: 4/5 i think this is really a must have if you can play it, its just too good not to

casual: 5/5 cause casual players like big numbers (just like MTG)

raid: 4/5
W.A.Y.S. Rounding up weapon week is the mighty Thunderfury, Blessed Blade of the Windseeker. First let's look at the cost of this mighty weapon. The play cost is a hefty 9 resources. Now that's a freakin' ton. The attack is a great 6. the striking cost a big 5. Between the play and strike cost your looking at a combined 14 resources and that's quite a large cost to pay. So more often then not you're going to be attacking the following turn you play Thunderfury.

Now on to the reason anyone would use this card in the first place, the effect. You get to choose up to five different targets for some extra damage plus the normal damage. The first target would take 5, the next 4, the next 3, and so on. So in one you can do a total damage of 21. 14 resources for 21 damage is pretty good if I do say so myself.

Sealed: 2.5 out of 5 - This is a toss up. If you get it out you'll most likely win. If you don't this card will probably end up in the resource row.

Constructed: 4 out of 5 - This card has seen some success especially in the Dark Moon Faire, Austin. The majority of Team Alternate Win Condition's decks ran this card as an ace in the hole finisher. With a good solo deck with support this card will make trouble of itself.

Casual: 4 out of 5 - Throwing all that damage around couldn't be anything but fun.

Raid: 2 out of 5 - This card could take out 4 or 5 whelps in Onyxia but the damage to Onyxia could be achieved faster with other weapons at a cheaper cost. It'll be interesting to see what the Molten Core Raid will have to offer in terms of allies and boss characters.
