    That's a lot of stats for a measly condition.

    But Mor'shan Elite never did make the playoffs. Will this one share its fate? At least it has taunt by default, I guess.

    Don't know if that's enough, because its looking a lot like we'll never actually see this card outside of arena right now.

    Strong on paper, but if Mor'shan Elite didn'T see play despite being much easier to activate on curve I doubt this will. Well...not unless we get some really sick new weapons.

    I tried having fun once.

    It was awful.

    This needs some more support. But if it gets a bit of support, i think it might see play. Especially because Mor'shan Elite is also still in standard. This card has some potential.

    RNG is only fun as long as there is a 50/50 chance of getting something really good or trash level of bad. If RNG always results in something good, then it's not fun.

    This looks strong ... the condition is easily met and for 7 Mana that`s a lot of stats and a removal ... defenitely a card with potential to become very dangerous!

    Seems strong if we get some good weapon. Maybe needs that sidekick from wailing caverns to come down before it?  Definitely has potential.

    Definitely Pirate Warrior won't have any problems having a weapon to activate this, and maybe most other Warrior archetypes as well. I think because of that, this will be pretty nice.

    Wow that's a lot of stats just for having a weapon equipped. Might see play in control warrior? Tough to say, will have to wait and see what weapon options are available in the core set and we might get another one in this expansion.

    Not guaranteed to see play, but I like it. The Rush is the main thing for me that could push it into playability, even if the mana Cost feels a bit too high and you need a weapon equipped to get the Rush body. Feels too circumstantial, but I want it to be good.

    I have spoken.

    This indeed has potential, given that you already have a weapon equipped, it can be both defensive and oppressive.

    Not really sure Big Bois is the direction that Control Warrior wants to go. As other people pointed out, the condition is similar to Mor'shan Elite, but that hasn't seen play even in most Conditioning Warrior decks.

    Considering how many weapons Warrior has access to, it should be easy to get a lot of stats for 7 mana. Even so, not sure if it has a place in current Warrior decks.
