I love it!
I was actually coming here to post something very similar.
I like new mechanics that are added and skills which require you to play differently. Elradir and Myztero are two heroes where you need to make the opponent play the specific skills you want - but only once you are ready for them. Elradir got mainly bad reviews specifically because of the thought process that in today’s meta it is all about quickly killing the opponent and avoding their specials completely. If you are getting hit then you may already be in trouble.
With most of my teams I don’t play that way. I typically go through multiple iterations of specials and manage the specials coming in (either through mana control or healing). I think that is why I enjoyed playing with Elradir so much. And I think Chakky will be similar - the fact that I need to encourage the opponent to fire Odin/Sif, whilst having enough health/defense to manage that, and also having Chally ready to fire - that requires strategy and timing and that sounds fun to me. Bring on the lizard.
