Excellent stats?[edit source]

I am not sure what values are considered to be "excellent", but I suspect that whoever wrote that the Golden Monkey card "has excellent stats for its cost" was not considering the fact that, although it is a 4-cost card, you actually have to spend 6 mana total on the monkey, since you also need to spend 2 mana on playing the Map card which does basically nothing (spend a card, draw a card) unless you have minions with bonuses for casting spells. 6 mana for a 6/6 taunt minion is decent but I am not sure it could be considered an "excellent" stat/cost ratio. This is aside from the extremely powerful Battlecry, of course. 73.228.236.183 08:30, 9 February 2016 (UTC)

I agree. I expect the author was looking purely at the card itself, without considering the context. I've made a separate section regarding the minion itself and its value. -- Taohinton (talk) 22:49, 12 February 2016 (UTC)
