Inspire: Gain +1 Attack.
But not the lowliest!
Weird how his death cry is 'Run Away'...

Oi mate! one day i will be a real knight
pensear is gone.. YES! i like golden animation
Where is he?
I hate his sound...
I wonder if this card is in some way a slight nod to the Magic: The Gathering's "Squire":
Often considered one of the worst cards ever printed - "But not the lowliest" makes me sort of think it's a reference to MTG's Squire - especially given they share the dubious 1/2 starting stats.
This sounds like quite a usable card on paper. Unfortunately, as long as Zombie Chow exists this card will simply be outclassed.
I'm pretty sure I'm going to be hating this guy in a month or so. Not quite as bad at snowballing as the old undertaker, but it's probably on par with mana wyrm at least, and some classes really need an early play turn 1; this will be amazing in shaman, I'll bet. It'll probably crop up in a lot of other decks as well.
looks like a decent opener for some classes. With mage, rogue, or druid, you can clear those pesky 1/3s or 2/3s early on. If it survives, you can take out an x/4 card, which isn't terrible. Or trade against 3/2s and 2/2s while activating your "do nothing to the board" hero power, like warlock and warrior. It's a slow card for sure, but the synergy with other inspire cards is good and I think it's a pretty good 1 drop
The undertaker trauma killed this card before it was even actually released. Rip.
I love this as a 1 drop in oil rogue. Zombie is obviously great but you have to run 2 to have a good chance of playing it turn 1 and the drawback will put you out of burst range sometimes. This and hero power will do 3 damage turn 2 just like chow. It might die early, but the trade off again is that you don't have to worry about having a dead card late game
Lowly Squire + Coldarra Drake + Maiden of the Lake
10 taps later and suddenly this guy is eating giants for lunch! lol
I think that the mages will be using this card as early removal in combination with fireblast, it can destroy every 2-3(If pinged first) and 3-2 that the enemy can lay down on turn 2
Have people forgotten about Hobgoblin? I've had success with a Hobgoblin Warrior deck so I can see the potential in this card. Maybe not the best turn 4 move (Hob into Lowly Squire) but you get a 2/3 and 3/4 on the board that continues to be buffed with Hero Power. I like the idea of the opponent having to make a decision of what's more important to kill, if they can't kill both at the same time. Can't wait to put it to the test!
This one might actually replace Zombie Chow that is practically on every deck.
Decent early trading power but without the 5 healing. It can be played late as well as early. Zombie Chow late is... meh.
But... 3 health vs 2 allows for 2 for 1 trading.
I had mage into consideration when I made that comment. Yeah, you are right. It's only better for mages and rogues really.
The problem I have with the Squire is that he won't kill other 1-drops like Voidwalker or Northshire Cleric. He can kill these in conjunction to hero powers that do damage (Rogue, Druid, Mage) which is ok I suppose.
