Yes but if it is your very first legendary a leeroy opens you up to play very competitive decks right away. Most control decks run at least 2 and oftentimes 3 or more and it doesnt matter much which you craft first in the grand scheme of things. But to be honest I have a sylvanas and leeroy as my only 2 legendarys, and I dont like to disenchant cards until I already have 2 and crafting cards for decks I need has me with little to no dust but I plan on crafting in order of how mny decks use the same legendary and my first craft will most likely be bloodmage thalanos. Followed by Rag.
On the matter of crafting Bloodmage Thalnos as your first legendary ever:
I thought that as well and I got Ragnaros and Bloodmage Thalnos. Now, I've got basically every card in the game so it doesn't matter, but the Thalnos was definitely a mistake (in hindsight). Let me explain:
Thalnos is hard to substitute and in a lot of decks. Also it is a neutral legendary which makes it somewhat logical to get it as one of your first legendaries ever. Problem: While not being easily replaceable, it is not that contributing to a win on your daily ladder grind, especially in the lower ranks. Bloodmage Thalnos is, in my humble oppinion, more like icing on the cake, to make a deck truly powerful.
Most of the time, if you don't have legendaries, you struggle to close a game out. Ragnaros and Leeroy can provide this closing power and give you the win. Thus, if you have no useful legendaries, yet, and plan to craft your first one, I'll definitely recommend Leeroy over Ragnaros over Thalnos.
I ended up crafting Ragnaros first because it is, in my opinion, more exciting to draw and play than some of the alternatives.

Sylvannys should be listed, imo after either ysera or rag that is the next most important in any non rush deck
I have always had a hard time when it comes to valuing Sylvanas. I think it's a little frustrating since a lot of the chaos she causes is unseen. It's very satasfying to see your Rag destroy a Giant, but when you drop a Sylvanas it's hard to tell if you've actually disrupted your opponents plan (since you can't see their hand). I would say she just about falls out of the "essential" legendary crafts. I would definitely rate her top of the non-essentials (along with Thalnos).
My personal choice would be Cairne or Leeroy depending on what style you like/want to play. If you favour drawn-out/control style games then Cairne, Rag is tempting as it's such a powerhouse (and almost impossible to substitute) but it dies to so much, including BGH which is rife in the meta right now. The only thing that hard counters Cairne is Hex, Polymorph and Mind Control. If you favour faster rush play then it has to be Leeroy. It's deceptive as you think Arcane Golem or Argent Commander are sutible subs, but they're very poor subs, and Leeroy is the center piece to almost every rush deck (except zoo). He even has a place in some mid-range decks.
