Reno's HP:

What Does This Do? - Passive Hero Power. At the start of your turn, cast a random spell.

Get those salt shakers ready, boys.
If you wake up at a different time, in a different place, could you wake up as a different person?

Reddit seems to be s***ting on this hero power, claiming it's super weak, but it looks...fine to me?

I wasn't expecting the hero power to singlehandedly take over the game--recent DK hero powers have been more around the power level of justicar trueheart hero powers (like...warlock galakrond makes two 1/1s, and Zul'Jin pings for 2). This is...roughly that kind of power level.

(The battlecry on the card is already enough to make the card playable. It's like...the lovechild of Plague of Death, Psychic Scream, and vanish. Creatures just go away but without dying or threatening to come back. Oh, and gain 5 armour. Hero power is still typically an upgrade over the mage ping, even if it's going to make for some trollden moments).

Just seems like lazy ass design. RaNdOm is fun type deal.

I'm not claiming it's weak, it's just going to create some super salty Trolden clips for sure.

random IS fun though
boring and mundane signature
Now with more bold! Less Italics due to bold

It's also what I expected with the way they handled Reno in the adventures. (Reno was the bumbling idiot who was like "ooh, what does this button do?" When he first gets the gattling wand he's literally hitting himself in the face with it). Also with the way they present the board clear effect of the card. "The minions go *poof*. Where do they go? Who knows? Reno certainly doesn't!"

My first guess was that the minions you had poofed would randomly resummon on your side some time later (but not at predictable intervals). Something that would make Reno look incompetent and out of control but still win games.

Like...it was definitely going to be something semi-random and out of control. The *least* random hero power I could imagine them giving Reno would be like...a hero power that casts arcane missiles. (But that would be fairly bland).

If the other explorers have hero powers I'd expect them to be a lot more...stable and predictable than Reno, just given the way their characters have been written.

I'm excited for the possible return of Quest Paladin with that new reborn minion. Maybe Quest/Mech?

Yeah, agree with this and your post. But it just seems like this was the easy/obvious choice.

Card is giga bad. Vanish + gain 5 armor and cast a RaNdOm spell every turn for 10 mana is just meme tier bad.

Good chance Hearthstone doesn’t even make it into Game of the Decade, because no one likes games where skill is no factor in results.

Mage RNGs two of the spell where both players draw two, which of course mills my Leeroy Jenkins. ALL results are completely and thoroughly randomized and there is no defense for the design.
