One of the best cloth armors in the game right now,
Whitemane's Chapeau allows a 1 time recycling of an
ability card. This is great in nearly all Warlock,
Mage, and Priest decks. Shadow priests love it for
those Mind Spikes and Mind Blasts to end the game.
Also, most decks using this card will be playing
Zapped Giants, allowing a greater choice in the
sbility you bring back!
Well this is an armor, the fact it can absorb 1 dmg
makes it so and it accomplishes an additional effect
as well for characters that normally would use an
abundance of abilities. Either abilities to use
again or abilities that were taken out, doesn’t
matter; all this card needs to do is enter play. By
turn four, this card should have targets even though
they might not be the best targets. Saving this hat
for a rainy day might be the better call. I would
use this card mostly, or in earnest, only for the
recovery ability. A combo deck would need this card,
also a player knowing that the opponent or metagame
is full of ability destruction would find a good
answer in this armor.
Constructed: 3/5 (decent but for the right deck and
at the right time)
Sealed: 3.5/5 (recursion of anything in this format
is highly praised and should be used)
Raid: 3/5 (if the ability was worth using once, its
worth using again)
Play Cost: 4

When Whitemane's Chapeau enters pay, you may put an
ability card from your graveyard into your hand.
Sure, being able to prevent 1 damage is cool, but
you don't play Whitemane's Chapeau for that reason.
For the play cost of 4, you get to pick an ability
card from your graveyard and put it back into your
hand. Playing a hunter rush and there's a swarm of
weenies about to attack? Sure! Play Whitemane's and
get back your Frost Nova. Want more card advantage?
Play Whitemane's and bring back Mind Spike. Running
out of cards? Bring back Life Tap.
