    Great flavor, and Mage has enough cheap fire spells that this could actually be viable. In part, viability depends on how being unfrozen works - if Frozen Mammoth can be played on turn 4 then attack on turn 5 when you play a fire spell, then I think it could very easily see play. If it's still treated as having summoning sickness until it's been unfrozen for a turn, then it's junk.

    Great flavor and incredible stats for the cost. The Fire spells doesn't even need to be cheap, as you cast it the turn after and this immediately attack.

    Arena: It's a trap, even if you have so synergy.

    Constructed: Great flavor, but I can't see Frozen Mammoth being anything more than a meme.

    So Mage has the best cheap Fire spells, but why would Mage want to run a minion that is just a bunch of stats? Hunter needs more Fire Spells (is Explosive Trap its only currently?) to work with it. Who else has Fire Spells? Warlock with Altar of Fire? Perhaps it goes into Silence Priest (with Lady Prestor!), for some quality memes. Just a bunch of stats, probably not good enough even in the classes that can ore easily enable it.

    I have spoken.

    Cool flavour, but too situational

    Unironically a solid card for Mage. We needed some decent minions and this is basically a 4-mana 6/7 with almost no downsides as long as you build a deck to support it.

    If only we had a Fire tutor...

    I tried having fun once.

    It was awful.

    Mage can make use of this really well.  With The Coin and Hot Streak you're looking at a scary minion as early as T3

    Either just a big meme, or it will see play in some kind of zoolock that wants to unfreeze with Backfire or Altar of Fire? I guess some kind of aggro/midrange fire mage? Either that or Silence priest has to make a comeback, but shadow priest is already more succesful than silense priest ever was.

    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.

    I think this card it's on the wrong set, maybe in the year of the Mammoth?

    I'm not sure where I'd want to run this. Some kind of Mage deck I suppose.

    Its only ever going to see play in either mage or hunter. Nothing else.

    I assume that after one turn, whenever you thaw this it'll be able to attack immediately. But likely it wouldn't or otherwise it'll be way too strong.

    Will it ever be a core meta card? Too inconsistent for it to ever be. But sometimes when it does work, your opponent will be covering his face like he's just scored an own goal.

    Flavor-wise it's 5 stars. Aside from that, this won't see play, outside of evolve or random generation effects. You wouldn't even pick this from a discover effect, coz not all classes have access to fire spells. 

    TREMBLE before.... the most legendary dragon that ever existed!

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

    It is a meme, yes. But so was Arcane Watcher which was played for a while. Who knows, maybe we will see it in some lower tier deck. Or just Roffle deck to make fun of it.

    Flavor is excellent.  But it remains to be seen if this is going to be a great tempo card for mages, or just a dumpster fire of a card (no pun intended).

    Er...might be good if you mana cheat out a cheap Explosive Trap?

    Outside the obvious mage spells, only Warlock (Hellfire, Backfire, and Altar of Fire), Shaman (Molten Blast and Perpetual Flame), and Hunter (Explosive Trap) have fire spells in standard right now. That makes this essentially a mage class card. The decks that use the other class' cards wont use this minion.

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