Nice to use after playing The Reavers Song.
And for OOH too - eg Meraxes.
A free warship with a fairly easy activation is nice, and the nature of warships make for cool messing with challenge math. Challenge math trickery is always appreciated for The Old Way, but to be honest, Event space is at a premium in those decks, and any event that just messes with math rather than capitalising on the unopposed challenge is probably not strong enough to warrant inclusion.

I think though, that the current rating of 5 stars is a bit too high a rating for this, as Events need to be held to quite a high standard to be worth including on set-up, and OOH aside, you're not saving much gold for the cost of the card, and even if the activation is quite easy to build a deck around you're still talking about a combo that requires three different cards at your command to activate.

Above factors in mind, I call it 3 star.
I believe Meraxes got errata'd to Targ only. Guess it's better than restricting it just because it was so popular out of house.
