    The rush Storms generated from the card is valuable for taking good control of the board. The hero power to generating 2/1 rush is very good with other invoke cards.

    Ok, so for 7 mana and if properly invoked, you get 5 armor, 2x 8/8 rush (asuming is this way as mentioned) and an amazing Hero Power?

    The hype is real, but i have serious trouble seeing how this could not be game changer

    the hero power is a great removal option, so a think this is gonna be good to play and a great deck

    Seems like the best Galakrond out there. Immediate board pressence with rush is better then any kind of value the other Galakronds might give and a very good hero power to top it off.

    Rush minions from invoking/hero power is great, but battlecry doesn't seem so broken as in other Galakrond incarnations. Probably is it so because of Corrupt the Waters. I like midrange style decks, so I definively give this a try.

    I think it's one of the best Galakrond cards. It seems easy to invoke and the rush minions are very useful. You could make a cool deck around him. You can go with overload decks or battlecry decks. Seems pretty fun to play.

    lot of rushing elemental and it repeat with shudder it almost like boom and maybe sometimes worst like warrior play to passive and this can beat you and clearing you board in process

    rush is good, rush on a button is better, although I wish the battlecry was different from the hero power, do the storms Galakrond summons get bigger as he's invoked ?
