    This and Bolner Hammerbeak are quite the bonkers duo.

    Posted 1 year, 6 months ago is this not a Legendary effect?

    That's basically global Thaurissan on Yeti stats. The only thing that balances this is the fact that there are no insane elementals...yet.

    I tried having fun once.

    It was awful.

    Wow, elemental Shaman will be bonkers in duels. Especially with double battlecry treasure.

    What's the most powerful card in Hearthstone?

    A credit card.

    I like the thought of this in elemental shaman, but what do I replace to slot it in? Does it take the place of the 2/6 taunt? Or is it more likely to replace the 2/2 that adds a random elemental  to  hand?

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

    Nice battle cry and elemental. Hitting deck too is great. This could be strong.

    Probably not good. Any dedicated elemental deck would be a midrange deck which means this card have to intrinsically let you play big elementals early and at the moment there's simply no really good ones.

    Unless you can literally build an entire deck that plays nothing but elementals, complete with an end game like kalimos there's just no reason not to just equip Doomhammer instead and win.

    Current elemental shaman decks are all aggro, reducing the cost of elementals would be pretty useless because at turn 4/5 you mostly need pressure on the board. 
    This would only make sense in a control deck but I'm not sure if control elemental shaman will work out this expansion.

    Very very strong since it allows you to mana cheat, would be even better if it had Spider Tank stats instead of Chillwind Yeti, but still very playable and will most likely replace Earth Revenant in Elemental Shaman.

    a Chillwind Yeti that makes the majority of the minions in your hand and deck easier to play... how is this a bad thing?

    Super good. Elemental Shaman is already pretty good in the current meta, and this will make it even better.

    5/5 one of the best elementals I've seen.

    I guess Elemental Shaman is going to continue to be good.

    Elemental Shaman is back and better than before. Even more powerful in Wild maybe

    This... 2 Copies.. I feel this is a really scary card... Not only for now, but also for the future... Even in wild.

    This is huge value! A ton of potential discounts and can be activated for even more value with Bolnar. Makes an Elemental deck much much more powerful.

    Wow. Now elemental Shaman needs more late game draw to keep up with puking out cheapened elementals.

    Chumbawumba is the worst band name.
