Bladed Gauntlet Reveal: Kobolds & Catacombs

Recommended Posts

Is this Epic weapon going to replace the nerfed Fiery War Axe in Control Warrior?

This card was revealed by MKRR3 from Poland on YouTube. Here is a screencap:

This looks like a more balanced version of pre-nerf Fiery War Axe and it can help Control Warrior. After the FWA nerf, while the main target was probably Pirate Warrior, all Warrior decks were hit really hard. Control Warrior (and the class in general) already has many ways to generate Armor. If it receives some more cards with Armor synergy in K&C, perhaps we could see a revival of the deck.

Make no mistake, though: despite the 2-mana cost and the comparisons to Fiery Win Axe, this card shouldn't be played in early game. The Epic rarity is also slightly disheartening: Control Warrior is already an expensive deck; it was actually called "Wallet Warrior" in its very early days.

Can this weapon be an effective addition to Control Warrior decks? I am looking forward to hearing your opinions! You can also check out our Kobolds & Catacombs hub for everything related to the new expansion.

Hm, while it does have some good potential for the late game, being able to take out big threats that usually only gorehowl could, the fact that it doesn't help as much on the early game as fiery war axe did makes me wonder if you'd even bother to add this. The low mana cost is deceptive, as you actually need to spend more mana on armor to be able to use it, and whenever you kill a minion some of that armor goes away, so you could end up having to spend even more mana to use it again.

That said I definitively want to see this having over 30 attack and hitting the demon that deals as much damage as it takes to its owner.

I don't see this as a fiery war axe replacement. It may be 2 mana but it's not the early game threat remover that fiery war axe was. That being said, it's not a bad card and will probably see play.

Gorehowl is better and can hit face for 7 damage if needs and has more durability than this if not.

This can't hit face has 2 measly durability and 0 atk without armor that means if you are behind this has 0 atk.

The card is unplayable and has written the word Winmore all over it.

If you can play this you coulda play Gorehowl or Arcanite Reaper anyway and those are not 0 atk when you are behind.

Comparison with Fiery War Axe is also useless that cost 3 and has 3 atk and can go face for 6 damage  even nerfed it's much better than this card.

Cursed Blade is broken OP compared to this.

It's a new design and hard to judge but I am not sure it will see serious play. Pirate has definitely no use for it, Tempo, I doubt it and even control warrior will have a hard time to make this thing valuable. If it had at least 3 or 4 durability. Additionally you put yourself in an awkward position confining yourself to spend mana and/or cards to generate armor. You just make yourself less flexible.

In the early game when you have no armor you lose tempo, in the later game stages where you might already have some armor up, as others said, you can just play a Reaper or Gorehowl.

Struggle to see much use to this.  Unless you have a huge amount of armour, you’re going to have to top it up to get any value out of the second hit. Or you could just run shield slam and keep your armour. Would help if they nerfed buffed shield slam to 2-mana though...

My prediction seems to be the exact opposite of the rest of y'all. I think this card will see alot of play and will be really useful in combination with armr generating turns for some valuable plays.

Maybe I'm just a rebel (fuck the system)

We all have different view points and opinions and that's good, I guess ;)

Even if your prediction is not totally wrong I think the 2 durability is barely worth the effort. But we will see. And it would be nice to see a warrior deck that is not boring, but I have my doubts :D

This card probably won't see any play, not because it isn't any good shield slam on a stick is really good especially because you can draw it with forge of souls.  But I just don't think control warrior will be good.  They got a lot of nifty toys, but nothing nearly broken enough to make them a competitive deck.  The legendary weapon could change this, since forge of souls makes it possibly the most impactfull legendary weapon, but it will have to be pretty ridiculous for control warrior to make a resurgence.
