    SO COOL!

     

    Look who gets freeze XD. What's not to like? One more mana to hold up the rest of them. that's quite a discount on a famously played Mage card. I think we are in for seeing a lot of this.

    Sooo good for Control Warrior; kill the big thing and stall/limit your opponent's board space for a turn.

    Frost Warrior incoming! On a more serious note, this card is alright. Frost Nova that can remove an enemy minion, but requires a damaged target to be used. Good for Control Warrior

    That's an awesome card. It's simply a better Frost Nova because it can potentially remove a minion on the board. Yet another good control tool for Warrior.

    I remember Dean or one of the other devs talking about Frost Warrior being a thing when spell schools were released. Guess we get Frost warrior earlier than expected and AV is a good expansion to introduce it thematically. 

    As for the card itself, it has Execute + Frost Nova all in one card. That's pretty decent, considering it has the same cost as Frost Nova and is an excellent stall card for control warrior

    ...but let's face it, control is dead 😭💔

    People are saying this is better than Coerce, but one of the best parts of Coerce is the combo part that makes it so you don'T necessarily have to damage to activate it.

    Then again, Frost Nova in Warrior sounds huge.

    I tried having fun once.

    It was awful.

    I'd say Coerce is better because of the trigger issue. This card, whatever it's name's gonna be, has a bigger upside... But it's too finicky where Coerce is much easier to cast. They're both rly good and if an endgame exists both could see play in a deck.

    Coerce is better because of the combo, but it also rotates next expansion which will allow Snowed In to replace it guaranteed. But even now, i feel like Snowed In might just make the cut in control warrior because of the freeze effect. The freeze effect right now is pretty good with all the aggro decks going around, and it might just stall you another turn.

    I'm looking forward to seeing all the other cards warrior will get this expansion, so far slow/control archetypes have gotten a LOT of tools!

    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.

    Its Frost Nova that also kills something, so is there any reason to say that this wouldn't see any play?

    The only downside this posses is that it needs a wounded target to even work. So in a control game you need at least two cards, or somehow contrive a minion to get hurt so you can stall for a turn.

    Im actually more pissed that its yet more freeze effects. But admitably, the conditions of the card balance it somewhat.

    That awkward moment when Warrior only has one Frost spell and is already closer to the Freeze Warrior dream and Freeze Shaman ever was...

    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)

    Arena: Cards like Brawl can be amazing in the right deck and a waste of your precious card draw in another. This is not as lopsided as this doesn't remove your board while it is still able to remove an enemy minion, but it's similar in the way that it doesn't excel in each and every deck.

    Cosntructed: Control decks will love Snowed In. Something needs to be pinged before you can play this, but Warriors have plenty of tools for that.

    This is interesting.  A stall effect with Warrior.  The Execute effect is a revolving theme with the class, but freeze everything else?  That is new.  I'm not sure how to take it

    Very very very bad card. Too conditional to act as Frost Nova, too expensive to act as Execute. And it also freezes your own board! Terrible card.

    New freeze Warrior archetype coming? This looks like it could be useful in any case.

    "Billy Mays here for Warrior. Tired of not having a way to kill all those pesky damaged minions? Wish there was something you could do? Try Execute! But wait, there's more: Call in the next ten minutes and for just 1 mana more we'll throw in a board freeze! Just one more mana, and you can freeze all your opponents minions! Wow! What value! Offer not valid in Draenor."

    I have spoken.

    It's a good value for the cost - basically Execute and Frost Nova in one (assuming you don't care about freezing your own board), but I don't see how it fits. Maybe there are some frost synergies in Neutral or Warrior that make this a good card, but Warrior already has a lot of good tools for removing enemy boards, so I'm not sure why they'd want to freeze it instead.

    That is just crazy good and useful - 10/10 this will nourish the salt thread

    Very good tempo tool for gaining 1 turn of board interactions, maybe the freeze warrior will be the new freeze mage
