It can be silenced, which allows it to attack, or it can be turned into a Taunt. The key thing is that it is incredibly cheap for its stats, so if you can do one of those things it's a strong card.

it's played in almost all slow control decks. for example the warlock deck i'm currently playing

2 argent squire
2 voidwalekr
2 ancient watcher
2 ironbeak owl
2 sunfury protector
2 eartehn ring farseer
2 defender or argus
2 senjin shieldmasta
2 twilight drake
sylvanas
ragnaros
jaraxxus
2 molten giant
2 mortal coil
shadow bolt
hellfire
shadowflame
2 siphon soul

although you basically never use the owls on them. but 4 cards that give them taunt is enough, especially for a warlock. sadly even with this much taunt, the rush hunter deck is not a good matchup. but control-warlock is great against anything else, it seems. although I always get bored when my win streak runs out.
anyway, decks like this is what the card is good for.

At this particular point, I recommend going for Arena. With open beta having just started, there are a lot of terrible players out there.

If you're desperate for cards/to form a deck immediately then buying 3 packs so obviously best. Howver i value Arena more for 3 reasons:

1) It's fun to draft and play
2) It's allows you to gain a better understanding of how different classes and cards play
3) It can prove more profitable, sure you might got 0-3 and you've effectively wasted 50 gold, but if you manage 3-3 you earn 50gold and a deck, and then beyond 3 wins you're quids in.

when I asked, open beta wasn't up in the EU, but definately going to have some fun with beginners - though do you imagine a lot of them will be spending money for the arena?

They all get their 1 free run, along with early quests giving them bonus gold: defeating all the Practice opponents, levelling all classes to 10, getting their first constructed wins. So they'll be around. But since arena only tries to match you to people with same win/loss numbers (and there'll still be experienced players in there), you'll only really see them on the first game or two if you're winning.

I don't think I've ever been quite as frustrated with a deck as I am with this new rush Hunter. Just irritates the hell out of me. Totally predictable, and yet they still win.

Edit: Oh, god. I just ran into a Warrior aggro deck that was using the Hunter strategy of "just go for the face, constantly". It's spreading...

Funny thing I noticed: I have a 100% win rate as Shaman versus Warrior, in any game mode.

How worth it would it be to use the Injured Blademaster in a priest deck? Is it more of an arena valued card or is it decent for constructed?

The card itself isnt bad considering you can easily heal it up, but that still means using more mana on the heal.

I can see it as a good thing combined with the cleric or holy nova.

Hearthstone needs an emote for "Okay, you won, no need to be a dick about it."

i'm generally squelching all my opponents. even with the few options blizzard gave them, people still manage to be dicks.

for that priest deck, don't think mind vision is a card and I think you want more high casting cost stuff. this isn't magic, you always have 6 mana on turn 6. not making use of that is just wrong imo. temple enforcer, the 6/7 ogre. something with toughness that hits for a bunch. two of those 5 mana 4/4 goblins that draw a card when you cast a spell would also work quite well. and harvest golem instead of razorfen hunter imo.
frostwolf grunt is also no real card. if you want taunt, use the 2/3 that gives two adjacent taunt. otehrwise a berserker or just cut a 2 drop for something more expensive.

I'd remove the mind vision, the grunt and one silence for a spellbreaker and three bigger cards. 2 temple enforcer and a 5/5 stealth tiger for example.
