can Paarthurnax give upgraded shouts or is it the first level only?

He gives you 3 random shouts. If you already own any of the shouts that he gives you and have already used and leveled them up then he gives them to you at the level you had them already, otherwise their levels are 1.
It can give upgrades if you already leveled up the shout it randomly gave you having had other copies of that shout in your hand.

Am i the only one finding this card in need of a nerf? Im not necessarily talking about this card per se but its combination with soul tear? In far to many games, ive gone from being in the extreme lead to loosing in a few rounds ONLY because of the opponent drawing paarthunax, gaining a soul tear as one of its three shouts and using it to resurrect paarthunax as soon as ive killed him, giving him another 3 shout cards with another soul tear and so on. Either soul tear need to be changed so that you cant pick any card you want in your deck (mana restriction or picking 2-3 cards which are random is a thought) or simply nerfing paarthunax so you dont get an endless improved paarthunax and sure win in end game. There really is no counter to this either as its power is a summon. Ive used lethal to kill it early but i cant stop it from being resurrected. I wonder what others think about this?

This is a very powerful card depending on what you get. That's what makes this card problematic imo. being a 9/9 doesn't matter much, it can be dealt with, within a turn.
However, if you happen to play against a scout/spellsword/sorcerer deck and they've played a few soul tears throughout the game and to top it off, they get 3 soul tears from this card (have had it happen a lot for myself). That's what makes this card pure evil. Sometimes this card is just to much value. They should lower the chance to get soul tear.

I do recommend putting this in any late game deck controlling tho, It's value can be quite insane from time to time.
This works extremely well with blink/resummon effects too, like Night to Remember, Close Call, Dark Rebirth and Dragonpriest Mask. By the time you do that once or twice, you'll usually have an overwhelming advantage from the 6-9 shouts.
On the other hand, it's expensive enough that by the time you can do all that, an aggressive deck will have killed you.

I can also imagine a cycle without soul tear:

Paarthurnax -> Word Wall -> using shouts -> attacking with Paarthurnax -> casting close call or a similar spell

Swindlers Market would be pretty nice there too for some extra damage and heal while using the 0-cost Shouts

This card has been secretly nerfed at some point of time I think. I summoned him at least in 10 games lately, even Doppelgangered him a few times and never gave Soul Tear. The chance must have been reduced dramatically or even set to 0. :(
