    EW!  That nasty little Annoy-o-Tron that paladin drops on turn 1 will give them a 1/2 first turn with a 5/5 second turn.  That's gross and totally needs to be reviewed.

    I'm honestly clueless here, and that's happened maybe once. If it did what I thought at first, it would probably say "Divine Shield minion".

    This card is dangerous as hell.

    Sanguine Soldier on 1, and if they dont coin and ping it then its a 5/5 the next turn. Just mad.

    But the key thing here is that it has tradeable. Meaning if you dont get to use it on a turn 1 divine shield, just trade it away. The only downside of this card is that at any time after turn 2 its substantially weaker, to the point that it might not even be worth playing.

    As far as I understand, it removes Divine Shield from a friendly character and summons a 5/5. That can include the shield from Starlight Groove.

    I'm the only one who stops to see if he's dead.

    Hmm. Turns out he's dead.

    Hard to say how good this is. If you combo it with a 1-drop it's a 3-mana 5/5, which is good, but not insane.

    Best case scenario is just being able to drop it on 2, but that's very easy to play around.

    I tried having fun once.

    It was awful.

    Soo. This seems nuts. Dream scenario is obviously Sanguine Soldier into this, and i do wonder how this interacts with Starlight Groove. Because of the holy tag, does it remove shield first then re-aply it? That would be busted. And it also has tradeable, so if you don't have any shields you can just trade it away. 

    I think this might just see play in almost every paladin deck honestly. It's flexible, and it technically is draw as well. As for specific decks that might use this, i feel like Pure paladin will use this, and i feel like BIG Paladin might also use this alongside Starlight Groove but ONLY if the interaction like described above. Otherwise it's mostly just a Pure and or aggro paladin card.

    Edit: Also this might be really strong in Dude paladin because of the fact that Lothraxion the Redeemed.

    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.

    Thankfully, this remove a friendly divine shield and not just any - as having Paladin stealing a divine shield from you and getting a 5/5 elemental for doing so would have been beyond unfair..!

    5 stars for the 5/5.
