I think it has real potential, and there are many class cards from previous sets that had underpowered statlines that will be better cards because of them getting buffed before playing them.
I mean Hunter already has mechanic like this even when they still had had 8 mana call of the Wild, no one thought its worth, even tho Hunter has real sticky minion
Its too slow for aggro and board clear destroy you anyway and buff your mid-size minion, not worth the effort
And I think in general, game already has too many good minion that overstatted so you couldn't justify play good minion on curve instead buff your minion with weaker ones.
