This is a worse Undying Disciple, which didn't see much play. I'm guessing this won't either.

Blast Tortoise is a Battlecry, not a Deathrattle, and comes with a package of handbuffing opportunities (plus the already-existing Menagerie packages can synergize as well).
I guess the Battlecry allows you to specify when it goes off, whereas the Deathrattle was up to your opponent in most cases. Hmm... I'm still skeptical. Maybe a good arena card?
Definitely good, as long as you can buff it at least a little (which shouldn't be hard). As discussed above, having the damage as a battlecry makes this way stronger than if it was a deathrattle.

Its not a good card.
But occasionally it can swing board for you and thus deserves respect. That said, it practically requires, nay, demands that you build around handbuff for this to work in any way thats more than a wet noodle fight.
So we've got to ask whether its possible to play handbuff warrior and at present Im saying very likely no. At present moment of writing, the only two consistent handbuff cards are two, which are introduced in this expansion. So if you dont draw them then this card does practically nothing. Furthermore there's just no reason to want to play such a warrior anyway, when you can just play Blackrock 'n' Roll, a deck which is cute but nevertheless demonstrate how midrange, minion dense decks dont tend to do very well in competitive standard.
I think theres a chance it'll see play, but its very likely in a deck with subpar winrates.
I feel there's a subtle nod to Pokemon in there. As for the card, Anima Extractor is still around for now, that could potentially get this up to some pretty high damage numbers.
