    Hmm Frost Shock but better as long as there are 3 or more minions. Actually can it bounce between 2 minions, if so then it will guarantee kill 1 minion. Sure it does require 2 minions on board in order to kill 1, but against aggro this damages a lot of minions AND can stall a turn. Or you get unlucky and it only bounces between 2 minions out of 7 until one of those 2 dies, leaving 5 minions that didnt get frozen. Yeh it's really RNG dependand, but i like that about it, gives it more flavor. After all, in a snowball fight no one is 100% accurate, just as not all minions might get frozen. And if a minion dies it's kind of like when someone trows a ice ball instead of a snow ball. (Except the ice ball doesn't kill anyone luckely, but it does hurt.... might have been hit by a few too many of those... jerks.)

    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.

    Notice that this doesn't specifc enemy minions so it's not some ultra broken tempo boardclear, but at the same time it's basically Frost Nova that always kills something (although it can with if there are a lot of small guys on board.

    Good enough to run in a deck where you want to draw off Multicaster

    I tried having fun once.

    It was awful.

    Theoretically it's a better frost nova, but RNG might screw you over. I think Shamans will pass on this one in lieu of more reliable board clears like Lightning Storm and Perpetual Flame.

    If Frost Shock and Perpetual Flame had a baby. Freeze Shaman support, but still not enough yet to get it off the ground.

    Love the flavour of this card!

    Arena: Great card in control decks, less useful if you expect to have more board presence than your opponents.

    Constructed: Obviously goes into Freeze Shaman and I give Snowball Fight! a slight maybe to see play in other slower decks, but is probably not consistent enough.

    Its just overpowered. Being able to stall is one thing, killing at least one minion is quite another.

    It looks like a control card, but in all honesty, I'll be swinging my Doomhammer shaman on day one because this is just nuts in that deck. I wouldn't be surprised if at one point this card gets nerfed or forces doomhammer out in some way.

    Why Perpetual Flame? It not says "enemy minion" so it hurts and freezes your side as well (and if u are unlucky only your side). It's Bouncing Blade on steroids.

    Better Bouncing Blade. Good way for a slow Shaman deck to lock down its opponent's board for a turn. Probably not great for a tempo deck because it will most likely freeze your minions too, but if Control Shaman is a thing then this will be one reason why.

    I have spoken.

    Ask and ye shall receive.  I wondered what kind of freeze support Shaman would get and there we are

    This could be good. You'd probably want to play this when you're behind on the board in order to stall your opponent, but there's always the chance it could kill one of your guys and leave the biggest enemy threat untouched.

    Bouncing Blade with hints of Frost Nova. Seems like a great control spell, and exactly the sort of frost spell Shaman needs to make a Frost Shaman archetype work.

    So this can consistently freeze the board when played against a bunch of big threats, like big demon DH for example. It's not bad, but I'd think Frost Nova is better if you need the freeze, the 1 damage to each minion isn't too great. Can be combined with Cheaty Snobold for 4 damage for 6 mana, not bad but you'll probably end up freezing your Cheaty Snobold too.

    Card seems really fine, even without build around as it can serve as sort of Frost Nova but imagine that crazy Moorabi value ! :D

    Decent enough for control Shaman, potentially useful for Freeze Shaman.
