Probably the same issue with this card, exist with
Steelhorn and even worse too. No damage to
strike-back. It's just a little cardboard wall
that'll soak up damage. Annoying to be sure but this
card won't win games, just stall out for a very long
time. There are better protectors in alliance that
can stall with better abilites. It's cheap though,
its a work horse for 2 mana that's a 0/6. Still not
quite attractive enough to play.
Constructed: 1/5 (great protector, but nothing else)
Sealed: 1/5 (if you like heavy protection. this is
Raid: 1.5 (can take an ony blow and perhaps survive)
Crazy Igvand does, indeed, strike me as a bit of a
lunatic. At a cost of 2, he’s equal to his Horde
counterpart, Guardian Steelhorn. And where
Steelehorn has 2 for 3/3, Igvand is 2 for a 0/6. And
that’s where he went totally nuts. Who, in their
right mind, goes into battle with 0 attack power? Oh
Igvand is far less intimidating than other
protectors, due to his 0 attack. He’s rather
disappointing, when he defends, too. He takes
damage, and the opponent doesn’t, which allows the
opponent to build up undamaged allies. And even
though he can attack, there’s nothing to attack
with, unless you have something to give him a boost.
If what you need is a strong defender, for cheap,
while you build up resources, this guy will do it,
and that’s about all.
Draft: 2.5 – Sure, he’s cheap, and might defend more
than one round. But you better have a plan to deal
with all those allies that build up on your
Constructed: 3.0 – If you build this guy into a deck
that replenishes health, gives him an attack boost,
or adds an effect, he might just be worthwhile. He’s
also useful if you need an ally around as part of
the cost for another effect. Then there’s a ‘Dwarf’
deck construct that draws bonuses for every Dwarf on
the field. There, he’d be rather essential, as one
of the few Dwarves you could count on to stay out a
round or two.
Raid: 1.5 – It’s nice that Igvand is on the cheap
side. No ally should go on the field at a high cost,
against the dragon. But even though he might last to
defend twice, I’d rather just have a 1/1/1 Warden
Tonarin in play. He’s even cheaper, and can take out
a whelp while defending.
