Gijs
aka Warchief Thrall
Green Whelp Armor
Cost: 4
Restriction: Rogue, Druid
Defense: 1

When an attacking ally deals combat damage to your hero, you may pay 2. If you do, put that ally into its owner's hand.

Well today we’re going to look at an armor, which no one will use.
Sure you can send a Ally to your opponents hand, but he can summon it back the next turn without any damage on it.
But in the long run, you’re just holding of the inevitable, you’ll be overrun with allies or abilities.

Sealed: 2/5
Constructed: 1/5
Casual: 2/5
Raid:1/5
See you on the Battlefield
Warchief Thrall
Paschendale Green Whelp Armor
Cost 4
Classes: Druid, Rouge
Armor – Leather Chest (1)
When n attacking ally deals combat damage to your hero, you may pay 2. If you do, put that ally into its owner’s hand.

Ok today we look at a very specific piece of armor… I’m not going to lie to you I have never seen this card in play ever. I have thought about using it but my rouge deck is sporting a ton of abilities and protectors and my druid deck is all about the healing and my army of weenies. There is no room in either deck for armor.

OK that being said lets look at this card as if I’m playing it in my deck just for arguments sake. Turn 4 rouge/druid there is a lot of stuff going on but let’s say I drop a resource and play this bad boy, ok now I have a 1 defense armor that pops guys back to my opponents hand when they hit me… Ok now lets say I’m playing a horde rush deck, now I can pay 2 on turn 5 to pop something back to his hand but on turn 5 I’m usually under 10 HP and staring down the barrel of a Mako on turn 6. The crappy part of this card is that it’s too expensive and does not have enough defense. I guess you could use natural defense to bump it up a couple points but what happens when your opponent axes that bear form and all of a sudden your armor is crap again.

In my opinion this card basically requires you to build a deck around it and I’m not willing to do such a thing, but if someone does find a really good use for this card let me know. I think the game designers should have priced this card at 3 and maybe the ability at 1 as it stands right now it does not have a home in any format and really suffers in some.

Sealed (2): Isn’t so bad here druid and rouge don’t have a body armor slot so having this could be cool and sealed format is not as aggressive as constructed.
Constructed (1): Everything that costs 4 is better to play than this I’m sorry to say.
Casual (2): Build a druid Bear deck and get those natural defense out and hope your buddy dose not pop the bear form and you should be good.
Raid (1): If you could force your opponent to hold those token cards in his hand that would rock but alas those tokens just die when they are bounced back to hand.
Lazy Peon (2): You could use it in this format but really if your playing rouge or druid there are much better things you could be doing on turn 4-6 than playing this… I just don’t think this card was priced well.

Green Whelp Armor (Druid/Rogue Armor)
Pay 4 for 1 defense
Ability: When an attacking ally deals combat damage to your hero, you may pay 2. If you do, put that ally into its owner's hand.
 
This card is pretty good. If youre playing a rogue or druid deck, and youre afraid of losing, then playing this card (the only Druid/Rogue chest armor available right now) could increase your chances of not losing.
 
But look past that. Read this card's ability and all of a sudden this card gets good. You can return allies to their controller's hand. Only problem with this is that you dont destroy the card, and you still take damage.
 
Sealed: 3/5
 
Constructed: 2/5
 
Casual:2/5
 
Raid: 4/5

Green whelp armor .... Ok card...not great...not supported very well...rouges and druids...aka nothing. but if you play one of these decks it would be a good card to play, because they attack and they will have to resummon....it a fun card to try but don't depend on it or anything to win you a game

Sealed:3/5

Constructed: 3/5

Casual: 4/5

Raid:4/5 (whelps would die instead of returning to the hand)

Green Whelp Armor


Today we look at Green Whelp Armor, a leather chest for druids and rogues, which can prevent 1 damage and costs 4 to play. But that’s not all. It has an effect which allows you to bounch an ally attacks and damages your hero.

This will give you good control against many strong allies, keeping their attacks at a certain pace. However, allies with ferocity will make this effect quite useless. This is a good equip for a rogue deck, but it is better for the druid. With Bear Form and Natural Defenses, this card can prevent damage up to plate level. Adding the bounch-effect makes this card a solid source of control. So, place it in a (Feral) Druid Deck and some Rogue Decks. There are other equipments I would prefer in Rogue Decks over this one, but it’s still a good card.

And just for the record, it’s worthless agains Onyxia.

Constructed: 3.5/5
Sealed: 3/5
Casual: 4/5
Raid: 1/5
