There's a difference between powerful and impactful. A classic example is Hakkar, who affects the whole game when played, but was also a weak card.

@petebar I feel like this is the same kind of sytuation as with Legendaries... A lot of people treat legendaries as tho they were supposed to be stronger than an average card and making hten overpowered is justyfiable. That is a terrible way to look at it. The point of these kind of cards in that they can be build around in a way that they really shine during the game. For example C'Thun isn't a 20/20 minion that kills your opponent on Entrance. It is a 6/6, but other cards empower him, so he really is the one card that truly shines in a deck. The other reason something is a Legendary is that it has an effect that would be too consistant to build around if you had 2 of them in a deck like in case of Clutchmother Zavas. The third option is that a Card is just really solid and it's effect is too some extent unique, like in case of Tirion for example.
if you want to make a card shine in a deck, give it huge synergy potential that in a way amplifies what other cards do (like Brann Bronzebeard for Shudderwock).

@Turba Yes indeed. this is really strong, but i want it to be that way because Krampus is a main character in this Christmas theme, so i thought Hmm, let's make him op.
@Gothe It really doesn't matter to me i'm just glad i'm finding arts because it is a hard thing.

Huh, just searched it up, apparently there's a yeti named 'Grumpus' I feel like a satyr fit more with a krampus theme tho

Actually this is broken already... All you need to do is cast a single Plague of Flames and Krampus annihilates whole enemy board. This card is absolutely broken.

Too broken interaction with Living Stocking&Annihilatree. It is too easy to stack this Battlecry that way. Each of those cards are balanced on their own, but have absolutely broken synergy together.
