Frost Elemental is "unavoidable", in that it stops one attacker, at least.

I know Ogre is strong in Arena, but seems less so in Constructed.
Yeah, but he's better than Lord of the Arena. At least Boulderfist Ogre is good in arena--Lord of the Arena is bad even in arena.

If you're looking for a 6 mana taunt, Sunwalker is merely rare and sees occasional competitive play.

Emperor Thaurissan doesn't really taunt either. Yeah your opponent can't leave him up for multiple turns, but if he's going to kill you in 2 turns anyway, then the ability doesn't really matter, it's the same as any other 5/5. It's still very good, but I don't think "taunt" has anything to do with it.

Sunwalker is quite decent. I think the big issue with Sunwalker is that it gets killed hard by Black Knight and Sludge Belcher provides just as much stalling power for 1 mana less.

I assume he doesn't have Sunwalker.  Putting Lord of the Arena in a deck is wrong for a collection of any size.  Planning to Senjin+hero power turn six is probably better.

I don't have Sunwalkers.  I runs Senjin for turns 2-4, but by T6, Senjin doesn't trade with anything.

It's all moot now, as Emperor has replaced the maligned LotA.

I misread "maligned" as "malorned" because that's my attitude towards that other card.. lol..

I'd honestly just run yetis instead of lord of the arena.

I'm sorry my one Lord of the Arena bothers everyone so much.  Never knew it would have this affect.

I'm looking for a 2 mana replacement for Robo-Cub, if that sparks anything for folks...

In what deck? A taunt deck? Druid often doesn't even need 2 drops because of wild growth and innervate. I run zombie chows and that's it for low cost minions I think. Then WG and Innervate and everything else is 3mana and up, 3 mana being shades of Naxx.

Ramp Druid -- I run one Wrath and one RoboCub at the 2 mana level.  I run nothing at 1 mana, then Shades at 3, yetis at 4.  I guess I could run Zombie instead of Cub, but I just don't like Zombie that much.

Maybe I'll just go back to 2x Wrath.

Yeah, 2x Wrath is good.  Really good.  Wrath is a really good card.

Oh yeah wrath. Zombie is the se as cub in the 2/3 mode, which you often use anyway. But it's turn 1 which is way better.

So Fireguard Destroyer (the Shaman minion) officially has the most badass sound bites from Blackrock so far. I Thoughtstole one and I can't wait to play hearthstone with sound again.

I'm confused by the lore of this game.  I thought the adventures told me majordormo exetus is the guy who summons ragnaros, but emperor thaurrisan claims to as well?

I assumed that thaurissan summoned ragnaros to azeroth, whereas afterwards ragnaros is just in his office in the mountain and majordomo executus just summons him from there.
