    Incredible card. 4 mana deal 3 is great for mid game, and in control vs control matchup you can just use it's tradable to spend 1 mana for drawing a new card. Basicly it's Hellfire that doesn't target your/your opponents FACE, and you can spend 1 mana to basicly "refresh" your draw, should you top deck it.

    I think that in standard it will 100% see play in Spell mage and maybe hero power mage? 

    In wild i dont think it will see play considering Flame Ward is cheaper and does the same damage. Oh and Flame Ward has the benefit of being a secret AND it doesn't damage your own minions. The only real deck that might use it is Reno Mage, because it's a reno deck. And Secret and APM/Mozaki mage obviously doesn't play it.

    RNG is only fun, as long as there is a 50/50 chance of getting something good or bad. If RNG always results in something good, it's not fun.

    Better Hellfire. Any cheap spell damage minion also turns this into Flamestrike. The real value of this card is being able to cycle it against decks that don't run a bunch of small minons however.

    You either have a decent sized AoE that's early enough to help survive against aggro or a 1 mana draw a card. Either way, Tradeable as a mechanic is just very strong thanks to the keyword's insane flexibility and all cards, even the more mediocre looking ones, can be considered as options for decks.

    Rating cards on coolness factor rather than predicting power because I like screwing up rating averages (and because I suck at predicting real power levels, but we'll ignore that LUL)

    As mentioned by myself in several other 'tradable' card discussions: anything with the tradeable keyword is an instant 4 stars and up.

    And this one is no different. Yes, its rather expensive to deal 3 damage to everything (poor Hellfire can't get a break) but with the option to basically mulligan this back for another card means this card will almost never be irrelevant. If its too expensive, bad, or not viable just trade it for another. The only true drawback of this card is that you'll have to actually put it in your deck.

    Mages don't use minions so it's a one sided hellfire! /sarcasm

    More draw, situational spell. Not sure it's good enough.

    Great name though.

    Very good - Hellfire for Mage but with an upside.

    So it's Excavated Evil for 1 less mana and the new tradable mechanic. It's not bad and mage needs some lower cost AOE other than Flamestrike

    Edit: That flavour text (Everything is 50% off now that our warehouse burned down.) hits too close to home man 🤦‍♀️

    cute and all, but what do you actually do with it? Control Mage doesn't currently exist and I doubt it will anytime soon because it's just so weak to straight up aggro (even accounting for the new heal cards). Spell Mage will probably run it and gain a few percentages until the devs finally wake up and nuke Incanter's Flow, but ultimately I don't see this being useful in the long run.

     

    I tried having fun once.

    It was awful.

    Very strong board clear, and very useful if you didn't need it because you can draw another one from your deck.

    It's very versatile.

    Very good board clear, could easily be played in spell mage or a slower deck. Too many minions? Just trade it!

    I can't tell you how many times I have played control warlock vs another control deck and played Hellfire on nothing just to get it out of my hand. This is probably one of the best cards revealed thus far. Mages will likely continue to use this in control decks for a long time just because of the flexibility and efficiency of it.

    Not a bad sweep effect... I'm wondering how well this Tradeable thing will work out

    "Fire" sale lol.

    Really good card, though. Flexible and useful AOE.

    Board clears have always seen play. This one won't be any different. Also good in combination with Sorcerer's Gambit as this is a fire spell and buys you time.

    The name is really fitting for a tradeable card, I wonder how many others will explicitly mention commerce.

    Having not yet watched any of the videos, I'm guessing you just tap the arrows to swap the card. Cards that allow you to swap for something else if they are useless is going to be really nice. This card is of course Hellfire that doesn't hit face.

    You drag the card over top of your deck to trade it

    I'm the only one who stops to see if he's dead.

    Hmm. Turns out he's dead.

    5/5 card, even without tradable this would be just great.
