Should The Darkness have a Tribe tag?

    The Darkness Card Image

    Now a forgotten meme of Wild.

    HOWEVER, with the revamp of Highlander decks, the card could turn into a tech. Granted, a suboptimal tech.

    But what if it had eg. an Elemental tag? The card could find new synergies, and be easier to use in a ladder game. Maybe.

    Afterall, Radiant Elemental and Lightspawn are Elementals themselves, while being the opposite of what The Darkness is.

    What do you think? Are there more cards that deserve a tribe tag?

    PS: Am'gam Rager, Ancient Shade too!

    I don't think you can categorise them as elemental. In my opinion they are more demon than elemental coming from the void like Void Ripper or Void Crusher

    Yep, that's an alternative indeed. It is particularly true for The Darkness, due to its appearence.

    Yet, with the little information we have, the Darkness doesn't seem to be a true Demon, by-product of the Twisting Nether. Yet we can't rule that out, indeed.

    And what about Am'gam Rager and Ancient Shade? Is the former a Voidwalker too, while the latter is an Undead (with no existing tribe so far)?

    @Paquitopaq those are made of Void though. I tend to agree with @RavenSunHS, The Darkness looks more like Ancient Shade and Shifting Shade than anything else in the game

    edit: wait a minute, both of these minions a aren’t classified as Elementals. Whoops

    Make The Cow King an alternate Warrior skin plz

    Do you really want this guy to spawn from random effects? I am afraid every time I generate a random 4 drop/legendary already..

    Well, why not?

    The generic 4-mana thing is already in place, so that's not an additional downside.

    And there are already tons of Elementals or Demons that are nearly unplayable when randomly generated (without synergy), so that's an extremely limited downside. Not much worse than the current situation. And not so much of a downside at all when playing against a Renodeck.

    But the rebranding could make those cards viable in some lists, and that's a great upside.

    Because it's the worst card that you can get randomly generated on board I am not only talking about current cards but there could be a card that generates a 4 cost elemental or a random elemental (such card won't see play but arena exists) and it's such a feels bad card.

    The card is bad, even when Raza priest was everywhere this card saw 0 play even then it's just not a good card.

    But what is the REAL chance of randomly summoning it in the ever-growing pool of Elementals or Demons? It's not much worse than summoning a Fire Plume Harbinger. And the chance we'll ever get a card that specifically summons a 4-mana Elemental/Demon is definitely more remote than getting a Darkness from it.

    It seems you are really afraid of The Darkness (sorry for the pun, but it was so fitting).

    And the historical playrate of the card is actually an argument in favour of giving it a Tribe: it would have more chances to turn from meme to a decent tech.
