    The example showed a fireball that did 8 damage, an arcane intellect that drew 4 cards, and a polymorph that costed 1.

     

    I'd imagine it discovers upgraded versions of basic mage spells.

     

    Seems pretty damn good.

    This is going to be great! 6 mana 2/8 if your holding a dragon Polymorph an enemy minion!

    This is going to be a good card, mark my words.

    Carrion, my wayward grub.

    It's great. Cheap Polymorph, Stronger Fireball or tons of card draw. Highly flexible card and flexible cards see lots of play (Siamat comes to mind).

    Disappointed it is not Kalecgos

    A puzzle box? What does it say? ... Yogi-Saffron something... sure, let's open it, what is the worst that could happen?

    It's a pool of all the basic Mage spells.

    In the "announcement trailer" the guy says Basic Mage spells.  Shows additional examples of an 8 damage Flamestrike (still 7 mana), and 1 mana Frost Nova.

    Quick!  Someone give me something clever to write here.

    I don’t mean to be rude, but is anyone else disappointed with the legendary dragon card art? They aren’t necessarily bad, just not very epic

    I'm guessing the artists were somewhat limited because they were given instructions not to outshine Galakrond, but you're not wrong, most of the other legendary dragons don't look very grand or epic. Even Fate Weaver, a nameless dragon dude, has more majesty than the new Ysera, Nozdormu, Deathwing and Malygos. I don't mind Waxadred looking a bit silly, but they really done the old guard dirty in the art department here.

    They did Maly bad here, the card's fairly good however - mostly if the dragons are kind to Mage

    + Flamestrike that deals 8 damage to all minions

    1-cost Frost Nova

    I feel like the statline is a bit poopy. A 2/8 doesn't really trade into anything

    I tried having fun once.

    It was awful.

    Yeah, I would like to see all aspects at earlier stats but they didn't want it seems.

    Deathwing, Nozdormu and Ysera have same stats with Classic tho. Let's wait for Alexstrasza.

    I see what you mean, and partially agree with you : the art isn't bad, but those dragons dont have the same timeless classic stand or feel as their original iteration. So maybe not as epic - like you said - however, I do like how the artwork is dynamic

    why is Explosion so bad? Every other one got at least +2 damage or -2 cost. Why couldn't the make it 3-damage....or at least 0-mana. Who at Blizzard just really hates Arcane Explosion?

    I tried having fun once.

    It was awful.

    Well its twice as good as the original...which is in accordance with the overall feel of the upgrades in my opinion. But I miss some spells like Pyroblast? Why isn't that on the list. I want my 20 dmg nuke!

    I am not sure I like this card. Because its effect is random and the stat-line of the minion is a bit underwhelming. If you need one specific spell your odds are only 33%. So this is a card played for value more than anything else. At the 5-mana turn it has serious competition with Zilliax.

    But I have to admit, when combined with say a Kalecgos in hand, this will make your next 10 mana turn very strong indeed.

    The list contains only basic spells, not all Classic ones.

    Kind of like Kazakus and Zephyrs in that you're playing a card that creates a wide array of answers to your situation. Likely very good.
