    Summoning Cairne who shouts "Garrosh, you are not fit to rule the Horde" was fun but The Paladin feeding King Mukla a banana before finishing Garrosh off at the end was even better. Well played Uther, well played.

    Need to watch it again and analyze. Paladin looked so freaking strong, and Warrior so sucky. My initial idea was that the Paladin deck was just that much better made.

    It looks to me that the Paladin is a fairly minion heavy class. It could just be luck of the draw of course but there were a LOT of minions lol

    I think it was mostly Garrosh having bad luck with his cards. He didn't have much opportunity to do much.

    I think he did, I just personally don't like the deck he built. Leroy Jenkins and King Mukla are cards that give your opponent significant advantages. I hate cards like that. It's mainly why I'm kinda on the fence about the Warlock, cause he has some slightly powerful cards with obvious downsides too. Those can bite you in the ass just as much as they can help you.

    Still the Warrior cards were kind of awesome. That brawl card looks fun, even if it's seriously RNG based as well. In this case it worked like a magnificent board sweep though.

    I chuckled at the animation for Brawl. Very cute!

    Seriously, this has become my most anticipated game...

    All the reasons I liked playing Magic, with none of the obnoxious downsides like the hundreds-of-dollars investment...

    Neither one really used their hero ability. The other heroes seemed to make much better use of theirs.

    I did a turn by turn break down of the video, incase anyone find those kind of stuff useful (I know I constantly press pause to keep up with the game + commentary)

    Feeding King Mukla a banana and then finishing Garrosh with Bane, best finisher ever. <3

    Your persistence of vision does not come without great sacrifice. Let go of the tangible mass of your mind, it is only an illusion. There is no escape.. For the soul burns on everlasting encapsulated within infinite time. A thousand year journey at the blink of an eye... Humanity is dust..

    Y'know... that ending could possibly be a Blizzard made Spoiler for the actual WoW game...

    Oh gosh that was freaking awesome ! I just loved both classes. But it is obvious that Paladin was slightly stronger in card build and little bit more lucky. Though the end was EPIC called "REVENGE BI*CH!" Paladin is quite suitable class for me, but until I pick my class I need to see Rogue and Hunter in action, especially Rogue ! I guess I'll go Rogue. What I read about her was very cool, a Tricky play style. Drawing cards back, sapping etc it all is for me xD

    War is deception, a game played best from the shadows!

    I think you can expect the average game to be this long tho. The previous games, especially the first one was quite a bit longer then you will probably get.

    The duel was amazing and really showcased the paladin well. However, the warrior had a bad starting hand and was at a disadvantage since turn 1. Hopefully we can see more of the warrior deck because so far it looked to be the weakest out of the 6 classes shown.

    Same. The Paladin pretty much owned the warrior the entire game.
