Playing this minion will be useful at almost any time, due to the many abilities he has. However, since he has taunt it's very possible for him to die the turn after summoning, stopping you from gaining too much advantage from his windfury.
Playing this card in conjunction with stat buffs will greatly increase survivability and damage output, for the time he's alive.
This card loses almost all value when it is silenced as it becomes an 8 cost 3/5 card.
Al'Akir the Windlord is absolute ruler over the skies, air and storms. He is the weakest of the four Elemental Lords of the Old Gods. His domain is the sky over the Elemental Plane, which touches all of the other elements. Consequently, it "...interacts with them more than any other, and yet he is the most capricious and aloof of all the Lords. He is as likely to stir up trouble one day as he is to casually ignore incursions the next." His mood can quickly change, much like the weather. He is revered by all air elementals and creatures that fly. It is said that he is aware of all air spells that are cast anywhere throughout the multiverse - although this might be true, he rarely becomes personally involved in their resolution unless they affect him directly. For more see WoWWiki.
It should be noted that Al'Akir was made into a raid boss in the Cataclysm expansion with the Throne of the Four Winds dungeon. Although he is defeated in the raid by players, Elemental Lords have a tendency to come back from the dead.
Al'Akir the Windlord was the Elemental Lord of air. He ruled over his domain of Skywall from his seat at the Throne of the Four Winds. He was once the foremost tactician in the Old Gods' horrific armies. Aligned with the corrupted Dragon Aspect Deathwing and his fellow Elemental Lord Ragnaros the Firelord in their efforts to usher in the end of days, Al'Akir was defeated by the mortal champions of Azeroth, who were able to enter Skywall from the breach in Uldum and destroy the Windlord within his own sanctum.
