Card of the Day - The Lich King

So today I am looking at the Lich King from the Icecrown set. Honestly this Master Hero seriously underwhelmed me, you go from playing the wow video game and seeing this unbeatable god and then go to the TCG and see this sub par Master Hero in very limited decks. He has the new standard for health in a Master hero of 40 and a decent attack of 4. His effect isn't terrible but it isn't great either. It helps you get a lot of allies  really quickly, but in the deck this hero would normally be run in anyways you are already flooding the field with allies as is so the one extra ally per turn is alright. I will admit however that this effect could be extremely useful if the situation ever arises where your opponent has a Weldon in the graveyard or something like that. Overall I would say this hero is somewhere between the usefulness of Tirion and Kel'Thuzad. He can be extremely useful, but he can also be extremely useless. The Lich King in the TCG for me was a MAJOR letdown. I would be rather interested in seeing an Argent Crusade versus a Scourge deck  as both decks are a fairly decent counter to each other. I am going to be putting up a poll to see what you, the viewers think as to who would win. Tomorrow I am thinking I will have to look at a fun card some may know named Alamo.

  4. Interesting card...not as awesome as in the computer game but I guess they needed the TCG to be balanced.
