Maybe it's just me, but doesn't the Warden look goofy af? The way it looks, especially the big head with coral-like horns/whatever, and the way it moves, feel more comical than fear inducing to me.
I'm really considering not updating at all. Not only because I spent months designing a custom worldgen pack that won't work on versions higher than 1.7 and I have no idea how to fix, but it doesn't feel like I'm really missing something. It's mostly gimmicks that don't make the game any better, who cares.
