    This is some pretty crazy design. Too bad Fungal Fortunes was nerfed from 2 mana, it would've been hilarious with this

    you want to cheat out something like Survival of the Fittest with it. Guardian Animals and Cenarion Ward are fine too

    Looking forward to the crazy combos people use this for in wild. Can't wait.

    This is very interesting. I imagine this is something people will continue to experiment with for a while. The value is insane, but hard to control. It is varied, but not random. You can use Primordial Protector to tutor out expensive spells, other than that I don't see a way to get a specific outcome. This will definitely be fun to play around with.

    Its pretty insane when it works, or completely unplayable when it doesn't.

    This into Survival of the Fittest can easily just seal the game from there. Even at very worst, it can draw you three cards for each spell it casts for free.

    But when it doesn't work i.e. when you can't ramp, or you've drawn your big spells, or if you whiff the three free spells, then you're basically playing 8 mana 5/5, which in many cases means death.

    This is insanely good! Druid has so many high-cost spells that don't require targeting. Imagine drawing, in this order, Celestial Alignment, Nourish, and then pretty much anything else.

    Scary is probably an understatement for this guy. Though I don't think Cast When Drawn procs the Corruption of Carnival Clown, casting Survival of the Fittest or Cenarion Ward for free is still the nuts.

    Give it a week top, after release, and someone will find a way to break the game with this

    I think this will be one of those legendaries that looks incredibly strong based solely on the effect but turns out to not work in a viable deck. Maximum value means running only big spells that don't need a target. Druid doesn't really have a game plan that relies on low cost control minions to wait for the big spells to come in. Maybe it can be made to work with Primordial Protector decks. I didn't watch the reveal, do we know if the  Cast When Drawn mechanic will also serve to corrupt cards in hand?

    Unfortunately, common sense isn't as common as it should be.

    Just seems a tad slow for my taste, but I guess it corrupts Strongman at least.

    Still pushing "do nothing then win" Druid I guess

    I tried having fun once.

    It was awful.

    hmm very highrolly card. 

    Seems interesting with cards such as Survival of the Fittest, Cenarion Ward and Celestial Alignment stuff.

    But it can only super lowroll with cards like Innervate and Lightning Bloom.

    The only deck i can see it getting played in is honestly Celestial Alignment druid, for other decks it might be a bit akward to slot it in considering it costs 8 mana.

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

    It's mana cheat, so it's bound to be good. Will be hard to manipulate it to always highroll, but if it does it's gamewinning (Guardian Animals, Survival of the Fittest, Cenarion Ward being the most obvious highrolls).

    Hmmm... consistency will be this guys biggest problem, but it sure is a super fun card. Maybe there's a way to abuse this with Celestial Alignment as well.

    I notice I am confused. Something I believe isn't true. How do I know what I think I know?

    More mana cheating for a deck that loves mana cheating (aka Clown Druid). Very cool card, I'm sure it'll definitely see play, as long as Druid has lots of high cost spells. Only thing is, Carnival Clown won't get corrupted if a SotF was cast when drawn, so maybe this card doesn't go into that deck, or you remove the Clown

    The problem I see is that a Druid who wants to cast GA oder Survival of this, is likely to run ramp spells as well. And I want to control, when to cast my Lightning Bloom and not randomly at the beginning of my turn.

    Scam Druid incoming! Clearly, it has deckbuilding challenges, but this is potentially very scary. In Wild, this might bring some life back into cards like Greedy Sprite or Mire Keeper as you probably only want to run big spells and not some meager cards like Wild Growth.

    Great mechanic for druid, maybe the best class for this kind of effect.
    Though not sure how reliable will be in either standard or wild.
