    Too hard to judge right now. The implication is lots of Naga support for Priest which could be decent since they are spell-synergistic. The question is, how valuable is a self-replicating banana going to be? Miracle Priest dies without Nazmani so that's not an option and it's not a Shadow Spell so no synergies there either.

    I tried having fun once.

    It was awful.

    Way too hard to judge. It's kinda like Libram of Wisdom, but it doesn't go infinite.. Sure it's 1 less mana, but infinite + being able to be discounted to 0 > 1 mana repeatable after playing a naga. The only time i see this getting played is if priest gets some way of generating infinite nagas... Which i really hope we dont get. Infinite value is the worst kind of value.

    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.

    This card has the potential to be completely OP. The fact is that if you've played 2 nagas with one of these in your hand, you've basically 4 Serpent Wigs to wear at your disposal, effectively meaning you'll always have a serpent wig one way or another in hand. Kinda makes it a psuedo libram of wisdom honestly.

    The only reason why Im not sold on it yet is because Palm Reading is no longer in standard. So you've actually have to pay for your bananas. But if ever there would be spell synergy in priest, this is just a no brainer choice.

    One other thing you can do; just load your hand with serpent wigs and then toss it all with Sir Finley, Sea Guide for a loaded hand of better stuff. Might be worth checking out, because priest reloads like shit.


    Edit: Just realised that Im misinterpreting how this replicates itself. Seems like it only triggers when you play it, so you cant just fill your entire hand with wigs as you play nagas.

    Oh well, that's still useful if theres  way to discount these things.

    So this spell can't really go infinite and we'd need more mana reduction, so right now it just seems like a worse Libram of Wisdom which honestly is a good thing

    Looks ok!

    I guess we will get some Nagas for priest otherwise this would just be bad ...

    Impossible to judge before we see how many Nagas we'll receive.

    However, based on the current information, it appears that Naga Mage and Naga Priest will be a thing. Naga Shaman would also make sense!

    Why is a Hunter card in Priest?

    It is passable for board protection. If Priest gets a lot of high health snakemen, this will for sure see play.

    Reading the effect of the card, I was going to ask if we knew what the Serpent Wigs were, then I read the name of the card again and oh well... altered my comment ever so slightly ^^

    So play Naga with this in your hand, play this, get another copy. Repeat with another Naga minion. Power will likely be determined on how long you can keep the Naga chain going. A single target 1-mana +1/+1 buff seems right.

    That art is adorable. The card is...kind of a poor man's Libram of Wisdom? I guess if you're just chock o' block full of Nagas you can generate an infinite number of wigs or close enough to it. I don't think that's a great idea, but there's nothing wrong with generating this spell from a Discover if you need the buff.

    I have spoken.

    With Radiant and Lyra Sunshard returning, this is 100% miracle turn fuel, just need the Nagas to really pop off.

    I don't feel like this card is that great. It's nice when it's randomly generated, but I doubt any deck will actively choose to run a copy of it.
