    Awesome, Dragon anything is always fun. I remember Kibler played a Dragon Shaman during Rastakhan's Rumble, hope something similar can exist.

    Gosh dang it, cards bad.

    yeah, no, we're all going to hate this immensly after about 3 days.

    just slap a dragon package into Quest Shaman. Draconic Lackey already makes this more consistent. So aside from Sandstorm Elemental and MCT you'll also have to worry about getting flamestriked at 3....hitting coincidentally the exact same number of minions that you would play to not play into MCT.

    I'm gonna give this expansion a chance, but I feel like I'm just gonna quit after two weeks.

    I tried having fun once.

    It was awful.

    yeah, I have a feeling this will quickly get nerfed to 5 mana. Just compare it to any other damaging spell shaman has access to.

    Mark my words. Shaman will get nerfed.

    Excuse me, since we get all the breath cards based on the class dragon, which dragon has lightning breath? Or maybe someone new like Waxadred?

    Probably.

    As far as i understood it, only LoE classes get old dragon aspects, while EVIL classes get entirely new Dragons (+Galakrond).

    The only exception being Warrior, for unknown reasons (since Malygos is just as mad and hostile as Deathwing).

    I'm sure as hell not going to use that disenchant duplicates button for this expansion. This looks seriously op.

    Double the pride, double the fall.

    I don't know if I'm overestimating this card, but I'm going to keep all the copies I get from packs, just to be sure (if you know what I mean)

    I think it's more likely this card is played as a generated card than something you put in your deck. In general terms, Quest Shaman wants minions, not spells, even considering the chances of Dragonic Lackey. 

    Unless there are one or two real, competitive, Battlecry Dragons for shaman. Then obviously, this becomes pretty nuts. (At this point, I'm not sure I'm playing Twin Tyrant in a Quest Shaman simply to support this card.)

    Maybe there's some more competitive version of "Big Shaman" this time around. Plus we haven't seen Hagatha's Galakrond. This could fit there. But hard to see that deck being preferred to the Quest deck in most circumstances.

    Would be balanced with the number of dragons right now. But A LOT is coming, so this can always be active.

    Never netdeck, craft Whizbang instead!

    So strong if Dragon Shaman becomes a thing - it's a better Lightning Storm: while it only hits 3 targets, it does more dmg without the Overload. Probably one of the strong Breaths revealed so far.

    Absolutely bonkers card. I tried playing Dragon Shaman and had a decent amount of success, and that was without any class cards supporting the archetype. If the other cards are anywhere close to this one, I foresee great things for Dragon Shaman.

    12 damage for 3 mana? Seems balanced ti me.

    It's so crazy that this does not have overload. the base effect is already good enough. And with shaman having access to lackeys that discover dragons and spells, I can see this card being played with the activation in deck that neither have the card nor dragons (looking at you quest shaman who won't rotate at all next year).

    This is such a strong spell for 3 mana. As a mage main I´m sometimes very jealous of the AoE some other classes are getting.

    3 mana cast 3 Shadowbolts? Sounds insane to me.

    I am curious what the Shaman dragon will look like. It's been an archetype that never actually seen any play (if I recall correctly). This card does look very strong though, but without other strong cards, it won't see play by itself.
