How about some other higher cost units/heroes and legends that may not be exactly at the top of the competitive-killer-cards list but are still viable playing options. For instance, if there are four tiers, with the first being what was mentioned about above and perhaps others (the best), the 2nd tier being solid choices for decks, the third tier being cards that are limited in use or that are overshadowed by better choices, and the last, the fourth tier, being the poor cards that are really not good and rarely if ever see play.
What cards would fit into that 2nd tier? For example, I've always liked Archaon as a character from the WF background, and see him in more decks than I thought I would on deck box (though I realize that may not make him great). Would you all consider him a 2nd or 3rd tier character? He's certainly resource heavy, but has a big impact when played. Is he almost a win-more card? With many of the expensive legends I feel like they can really use Descendant of Gods to fully come into their own, but then that's more resources and another card you have to draw/play.
What is the opinion on cards like heroes: Bule, Greyseer Thanquol, Illyriel, Madtoof Ironleg, Johannes Broheim, Malus Darkblade, The Changeling, Skarsnick and Globba, and units: Bloodletter, Boargut Facebeater, Bray Shaman, Centigor, Daemonslayer, Dark Sorceress, Enraged Varghulf, Grail Knight, Lilea, Mountain Brigade, Mounted Marauders, Orc Warboss, Pegasus Knight, Rat Ogres, Runeblades, Skulltaker, Son of Grungi, Spearhost of Asuryan, Swords of Chaos, Bloodcrusher, Priests of Sigmar, Rieksgard Swordsmen, Shaggoth, Spawn of Kintearer, War Hydra, Winged Riders of Kislev, Wolf Chariot, Great Unclean One, Keeper of Secrets, Monster of the Deep, Spawn of Sulekh, and Legends like: Grom the Paunch, Malekith, Sigvald the Magnificent, Skarbrand, Teclis, and Tyrion.
These are some cards that have caught my eye as I've opened packs and searched databases. Anyone care to weigh in on some cards strengths or "tiers"?
