    Welp, that just solved the problem of not having enough fuel in Big Spell Mage and also eliminates the issue of wanting to cast both from hand and from deck at the same time.

    (IT'S A 4-MANA SPRINT THAT TUTORS)

    Should be noted that this is a very VERY good way to get a big hand for Spice Bread Baker (a card that would very neatly fix the issue of dying to aggro before you get to play your cards)

    I tried having fun once.

    It was awful.

    This....this looks fun.  Literally all of the previous big spell support is in this final expansion of the year.  Now....if we can only kill off quest mage and mozaki mage, maybe the mage class can stop being hated.

    Seems solid for Big Spell Mage, although I think it already has enough tutors for their big spells so that this one will not be necessary.

    INSANE card. The only problem BIG spell mage had, was lack of spells and Arcane Brilliance solves it. AND it can increase the amount of [Hearthstone Card (Puzzle boz of yogg-saron) Not Found] and Rune of the Archmages in Wild, so i'm giving it a 5/5 star. :D

    Oh and you can repeat it with Magister Dawngrasp, if you have big spells left in your deck. This seems good.

    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.

    It gives copies of the spells, so you can technically double the amount of BIG spells if you cast Arcane Brilliance twice. And it's a arcane spell, so Magister Dawngrasp can repeat it. (Good if you still have big spells in your deck.) Yeah Big spell mage will be a very fun archetype!

    This is amazing in Big Spell Mage. Also you can tutor out Luna’s Pocket Galaxy.

    Essential to any Big Spell Mage. Reminds me of Juicy Psychmelon, but with copies. Now we just need a meta where you can survive to actually play those expensive cards.

    For anyone who wonder how to make Big Spell Mage work, this is a pretty straight forward answer.
    Blizz is being very subtle this time of the year

    Its pretty much always going to fit into big spell mage, simply because it reads copy, not draw. One of the main problems with the old big spell mage was running out of fuel and depending entirely on an early Frost Lich Jaina, but with this card you can safely just play on and on until the opponent dies.

    Iceblood Tower, Rune of the Archmage, Deep Freeze, and Mass Polymorph/Flamestrike. Yeah that pretty much sums it up. Properly getting you fuel for your Celestial Ink Set to do work.

    But make no mistake that its still pretty much a control deck at the end. Which means, most mages are going straight back to quest or spell mage and mozaki mage. Why not? Siphon Mana is the best card in mage right now, because team5 just cant help themselves. And that deck straight up demolishes this one

    I think big spell Mage is going to love this. It's always great when you don't have to worry as much about your good cards being at the bottom of the deck.

    This card makes me very excited for big spell mage. Similar in effect to Juicy Psychmelon but this is just better value. Also like the Spice Bread Baker synergies that were mentioned above. I've detested Quest mage and haven't played the class in a long time. This spell makes me super excited to play mage again

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

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

    I like them keeping the wow-ish feeling closely this time. I still remember neededing reagents to cast this one in raids.

    More mage stuff I hate, though this seems like a lot of work to make it work, so hopefully we kill the Mage before the big shit comes out.

    Juicy Psychmelon for Mage? Could see this being utterly terrifying for LPG & Singleton Mage.

    I think this would feel more like bait to me if it weren't for Celestial Ink Set. The spells mage has access to right now in the 7, 8, 9, and 10 slots are no joke, and this goes a long way to procing the 5 mana discount on one of these spells. Given how impactful they can all be, I don't think you'd need to discount more than one before this was well worth the extra copies in the midgame.

    I see the push for Big Mage.  It's blatantly obvious.  What I have to wonder though is why can Blizz not push for a different archetype?  Combo Mage?  Freeze Mage?  Arcane Mage?
