    Premium statline and all but the amount of Fel spells you actually want to play right now is rather low. Guess it's supposed to move you away from playing Quest.

    I tried having fun once.

    It was awful.

    Hmm i guess you could copy Seeds of Destruction with it, if zoolock runs that? But that's probably it. It really lacks support, and i dont think you will run it just to copy Seeds of Destruction or Full-Blown Evil.

    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.

    Good value but few good targets.

    Now, with Felosophy, you can copy the card that copies a card!

    This card provides a lot of value in reality though, but no card worth copying at the moment.

    Until more fel spells are printed, this will most likely not see much play barring meme decks or arena.

    Purposefully printed as a non-demon so you cant just spam board with this and Felosophy.

    Too few good fel spells, so this one sits on the sidelines for now. Oh well.

    Maybe Seeds of Destruction can bring it to the stage, but I doubt it.

    No real use right now, but maybe in a set or two from now, this could be the corner stone of a bran new deck - or just a bit of dust for your collection

    Might work in some wonky demon zoo with copying felosophy, which is why I think it has more potential than Felwalker. Still don't really feel it though.

    Very good effect and stats, maybe a couple of turns later you can high roll and summon a lot of 3/3 tokens

    This card cannot be underestimated as down the line, Blizzard will print a crazy fel spell and we'll get some kind of fel OTK warlock... well I can only dream...

    Great 1 drop + value though, so will definitely see play.

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

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

    I could go through the fel cards and try to guess what you might want to copy with this, but I'm just going to be lazy instead.

    Potentially pretty sweet in Handlock, as it replaces itself and could copy The Dark Portal or some relevant AOE like Full-Blown Evil or Felfire in the Hole!.

    The Fel Spells around are ok, but nothing to write home about.  A the Fel stuff grows, this could see more play

    Will get better when more Fel spells will be printed so let's say it's quite all right for a 1 drop.

    Reasonable stats and battlecry. What gives? Warlock usually gets game-breakingly good shit.

    I did not see anyone playing this card today. There seems to be a lack of Fel spells that are worth trying to build a deck around. Maybe a deck emerges that can use one as a linchpin, but right now it is a solution without a real problem.

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

    So much Fel support and for what? The Fel spells Warlock has are OK at best and often quite bad, so I don't anticipate this making any sort of waves.

    A very good deal for its Mana cost. Warlock has a couple of Fel spells that are worth copying, so I could see a meta where this has a prominent place in a number of Warlock decks. Good for Control, especially good for Handlock.

    I have spoken.
