    They are STILL trying to bring back freeze shaman

    /s

    That's a good value though, we don't care about 1 mana freeze, it will definitely help.

    alright, they're memeing at this point.

    It's a good activator though. Stalling an enemy for a turn while advancing your gameplan can't be bad

    I tried having fun once.

    It was awful.

    I mean Frost Shock used to be playable, and this is better than that in most cases. The invoke effect summons a 2/1 rush, to this is kind of Freeze a Enemy, deal 2 damage to an enemy minion. That's a big deal, because you can freeze a large minion or the enemy player, while removing a small threat, or you can simply use it to create a 2/1 that your opponent has to deal with, and ignore the freeze all together. I'm glad you have to have Galakrond in your deck for the invoke to work or else I think this could be too good in decks that aren't playing it.

    To crush your enemies, to see them driven before you, and to hear the lamentations of the women.

    One of the strongest Invoke cards we have seen so far.

    Ray of Frost is super powerful, yes it has twin-spell but the ability to cheaply freeze a target can be huge in retaining board presence. This card gives the added bonus of Invoking Galakrond, the Tempest which summons a 2/1 with rush, just an incredibly powerful card for 1 mana.

    Shaman is looking to be the best Galakrond deck.

    Moorabi enabler finally? 2 more cards like this and the card would be playable in wild. But fair card to standard.

    good stall option, the rush also helps to clear the board a bit, or it could just help fill a board

    Yeah. This and Corrupt Elementalist really make me question Blizz saying the invoke cards are low tempo to justify the powerhouse invoke synergy cards.

    AND it works towards your Galakrond upgrades. And Glacial Shard already saw quite a bit of play.

    This card is crazy good. Probably one of the best invoke cards.

    Stall a minion while summoning a bit of board presence on the cheap. Don’t see a downside to this, really good card

    Who needs consistency when you could have fun?

    FREEZE SHAMAN IS BACK EVERYBODY!!! 5/5 CARD!!! NOW I CAN SHOW ALL THOSE HATERS WHO'S BOSS!!! FREEZE SHAMAN FOR THE WIN!!!

    Not but seriously, I wasn't expecting this. It is pretty good, it is just like Glacial Shard but with rush. There isn't a battlecry, so it doesn't have any synergy with shudderwock, but it is still a decent tempo play and it does invoke galakrond. This is better than a lot of the invoke cards we have seen so far simply because shaman has such a proactive galakrond power. Imagine freezing one minion and than trading into another. A 2/1 rush is a pretty good 1 drop, just look at Springpaw, this deals the same damage for half the cost, it is less flexible not being able to deal the damage to two separate targets, but is also can free whatever it wants.

     

    Carrion, my wayward grub.

    Well they're super low tempo in general, just not with shaman.  They said they wanted shamans invoke/dragon to be tempo oriented.  Their dragon's battlecry isn't quite as much value as other classes (though 2 8/8 rushes is still pretty nutty

    Glacial Shard with Rush, as others have noted. Glacial Shard saw a lot of play, so this seems like a no-brainer in a Galakrond deck.

    If you have the time, you should totally check out our weekly Hearthstone card design competitions! :D

    2 8/8s with rush is really nutty. Their Galakrond won't play the long game quite as well as some others, but it is still a major upgrade. Currently I just see strong and fast invoke cards that quickly activate overpowered synergy cards, and nowhere is there actually a price to pay other than that you have to choose between this, Hagatha and the quest.

    That's an embarrassment of riches, not good design.
