    Cool, a BIG DH card. Perfect with all the support BIG DH got this expansion right!? Oh wait...

    Luckely there is still the BIG DH package from Altarac, so maybe this big demon can make that deck playable again? That deck mainly stopped seeing play because it lacked BIG demons, and because Caria Felsoul got nerfed because of Xhilag of the Abyss. So maybe the deck can be playable again? I hope so, because BIG DH is one of the few DH archetypes that i actually enjoy playing.

    However this card will be quite bad post-rotation unless BIG DH gets a good amount of support.

    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.

    Pretty much just trash. It's basically a worse Illidari Inquisitor unless you're specifically facing a Taunt minion with 8-attack or more than 8-health.

    Big Demon DH didn't even see play when doulbe Pit Commander on turn 6 was a possibility and this is just not going to make a difference.

    I tried having fun once.

    It was awful.

    One of the most bizzare cards to ever be printed.

    Because Im still scratching my head as to why anyone would play this card over Illidari Inquisitor, or any of the big demons for that matter. Certainly weaker than all of them.

    The only redeeming feature of this card is that it'll probably do some damage before going down, about 4-7 damage, probably 6 on average because 9 health is an awful lot of health to shave off without killing this thing. But then again, if you are playing this card you'll need as much help as you can get. The card certainly isn't looking to do you any favors.

    Your first line got me laughing so good, have my vote! +1

    Sometimes, problems can be solved by throwing everything you've got at it. This is not one of those times.

    Yea... we know from experience that Big Demon DH never works out so not holding any hope out now. Blizzard would need to release better cards than this but I'm sure this big guy will pop up now and then from random generation.

    This doesn't look like it would be that hard to deal with without taking a lot of damage. I can think of very little aside from hard removal that can kill it in one hit, but if you did 3, then 6 damage for example, all you take to the face is 3 damage. Best hope for the controlling player is if there's an 8 attack minion it can rush into, and at 9 mana it comes out really late, unless you can cheat it out.

    Big Control is based.

    So the more damage this incurs, the more damage the enemy takes? 8 HP max?

    Love the art and flavor of this card, but I'm afraid it won't see much play, most likely.
