    I'm sorry but this looks broken in DH, +8 attack on a 2 dmg lifesteal weapon makes this possibly a 20dmg combo in 1 attack

      Il'gynoth is a spawn of the Old Gods. More specifically, it's a small piece of N'Zoth that also has its own conscience (just eldritch things).

      So, it's not a demon.

    I hope this is at least only good in combo. At best, this is a win condition for midrange demon hunters, because lifesteal isn't good enough to run in a faster build. At worst, this is a second four mana way for demon hunters to ignore taunt, which doubles as a damage multiplier with Aldrachi Warblades. Yeesh.

    I love the madness the guys at Team 5 are bringing to the table, this would be for interesting OTKs.

    Aldrachi Warblades + all the really gross ways to kick up your attack in one turn make this a ridiculous swing turn card.  I already hate it.

    Hm yes yes, it can definitely work with some interesting synergies... you can even do over 20 damage in one shot if prequipped Aldrachi Warblades
