    the portal bug fix so it does not work with GB ability should not be implemented

    Is GB OP? no
    Is he unbeatable? no
    But is he a guaranteed win? also no

    GB is a challenge to play and to play against. He can lose any game or can win any game.
    His blowing strike is portal + plazma + GB ability. Great combo, great challenge yet not guaranteed.
    If this is disabled, there would be one less hero in the competition, and one less top tier deck to play.

    The game is really balanced with him using portal, do not change that please.

    Trust me, he'll still work fine without Portal use on his ability. Use Nova, board clear and summon Ogloth. Or brutal Minotaur, or Plasma Behemoth. He has a lot of punching power.

    i know he'll still have cool options, but portal should be really really feared.
    If he were unbeatable fine. But this strategy is unlike the usual board control. It adds taste. We dont want all matches to be the same do we. SE has a lot of strategy. It is that that makes me want to play

    Yes ofcourse, but Portal is still a very viable card. Bringing back Brutal Minotaur through Portal to do instand 6 damage? Check. If you have enough resources, you can even bring through PB and do 7 damage. Or endless Shadow Knight loops are also helped by Portal. Don't worry, Gravebone will be one of the best heroes available once 1.30x hits.

    Yarikasakin won the V1.28 tourney with a Gravebone without portal.

    While he had luck on his hand, it also goes to show that Gravebone don't just depend on portal.

    Actual it's not GB that may become useless but portal may be.
    Didn't saw anyone makin a use of Portal in 1.3.x yet.

    Portal might work with Nishaven, check Wtzky beginner's guide to find his deck.
    It's for 1.28, but he says he's working on 1.29/1.30 versions of it so... stay tuned!

    Play ally on t4 - might get killed on their turn or might be ready to use on t5.

    Play Portal on t4 - they have nothing to hit at, but will hit you, so maybe t3 Armor is good. On t5, the same ally that could have been played on t4 (or one that costs 5c) can attack their allies straight away.

    Your aren't really missing a turn with Portal and you are able to cheat the curve and have a ready ally of a certain cost one turn sooner.

    Majiya might be the better choice for Portal now. T2: Bazaar; T3: Armor; T4: Portal. T5: Majiya zap, Minotaur. T6: Ogloth

    yeah im lookin forward to this hero. i quote wtzky

    Gravebone in the future:

    Despite the small nerf to his ability to use Portal, Gravebone will be a Tier 1 hero in the next version. He finally gets a protector in Cobra Demon, which he can use to protect whatever he brings back from the grave (or he can alternately have Cobra Demon on a recurse loop so that everytime your opponent manages to clear him, you bring him back). He also gets a great card in Sacrificial Lamb, which has some amazing synergy with his ability (and I have tested it, it is one of my favourite new cards on him) and gets to use Ley Line Nexus which works really well on him. Also look out for the addition of Ogloth, the Shadow faction epic ally which Gravebone will have great synergy with.
