Huge dragon with acceptable attack on turn 4.. with spell damage +2... with +2!!!
This is too much for my favorite class, so many good class cards too, please stop it.
It's a great card, will make shaman have more fun with spells now.
So its a 4 mana minions with overload 2 that has 5 atk but +2 spell damage and 7 health this seems way more abusive than flameface since you can use lighting bolt to do 5 dmg. Nice solid powercreepy card
Only a fool thinks they know everything. I admit that I know nothing
You certainly don't want to face this on curve.
Think this might be one of the strongest cards of the set.
Very strong card, I'm sure it will find a spot in decks outside of the dragon archetype, which I don't believe has enough support. Flamewreathed faceless was broken, this has 2 less attack but the spell damage can be much better in the right deck.
I like it a lot, but I don't really see how the Spell damage factors into the gameplan. There's not that many spells I see being useful after overloading for 2.
I guess LIghtning Storm and LIghtning Breath is fine, but this just seems overkill
Either way it's a solid dragon for a class that wants to play them, so we can't really complain here.
I tried having fun once.
It was awful.
As always I will stress that +2 spell damage is an incredibly powerful and often overlooked ability, the statline on this card is also insane for this effect.
This is a powerful card, although I do wonder if it will ever see play for the fact that it doesn't really fit into the archetypes that I predict will be powerful (Galakrond and Quest).

My hope is that shaman is split between so many powerhouses that don't really work together, that their power level doesn't really rise from where SoU put it.
I suppose dragon shaman needed something other than Lightning Breath to pull it together, and this looks more like that 'something' than Nithogg does.
Zap and lightning bolt become really strong very low cost cards
A 5-7 on turn 4 plus removing a 3 drop is enormously strong.
But your next turn is gonna be very iffy.
I like this one a lot. A big dragon body on t4. And the spell dmg to keep it safe if you play it on a later turn. Not too shaby, not too shaby.

Well, there goes the format. This isn't quite Flamewreathed Faceless but its pretty damn close. The spell damage means less directly most of the time but it means way more at finishing the game out. If you're running this along with the normal package it could easily make up for those 2 missing attack by giving you 4-6 extra spell damage and just winning you the game. If this ever sticks on the board your opponent is basically done for. The fact that its a Dragon as well pushes it even further into playability. IDK why this is a card.
To crush your enemies, to see them driven before you, and to hear the lamentations of the women.
huge dragon whith nuts spell dmg. amazing tool for board control with any aoe
The spell damage seems a little bit weird, I am not sure exactly what to do with it. Maybe just extra reach on your burn spells? It is also a dragon which does have some merit to it. But let us not get distracted by the text box, this is a 4 mana 5/7. I know that is not as powerful as Flamewreath faceless, but that is still super beefy for a 4 drop. In fact, I almost like this cost/stat distribution more, maybe it is just me, but seeing minions with more health than attack is always very satisfying, even if it isn't as good.
This card is pretty powerful with a fairly good effect, and a very useful tribe. I will not be the slightest bit surprised to see this card appearing in some midrange/aggro/burn/dragon shaman lists.
First rule of the English language: Their our know rules.
This is I guess suppose to combo with Lightning Breath in the same deck.
For standart it's meh, as other said, but for wild. Ofc 4 mana 7-7 is musthave in even sham, but, in late stages of the game, like turn 7 or 8 this card can be better coz you can use all potential of this card with your cracles and zero mana deal 2 (4) and clear 100% sure anything. Maybe, maybe, need some tests.
4 mana 5/7, overload 2, spell damage +2... why does this sound familiar?
4 mana 7/7 sry ment 5/7 with spell power 2.
Wow this card seems very strong (and we already got many OP cards revealed). I think this will find a spot in a deck, at least it's not a 4 mana 7/7 xd
A big scary 4 drop to follow up my Lightning Breath. Good stats, dragon synergy, spell damage +2 and overload synergy, what a great card.
More dragons? Yes please!
Good stats, good power and good cost! Fits like a glove in overload shaman
I think this will be Thunderhead's best friend. Hark my words.
Here's a link to my latest deck: Roland, My Roundest Paladin
Yeah, that's what shaman needed, an excellent dragon for 4-mana.

Now that's a cool Shaman-Dragon! Overload, Spelldamage AND a Thunderstorm in the Card art!

Quote From TheOdinsonIDK why this is a card.
IDK why this is a card.
Even as a shaman fan, this is absolutely crazy.
There are also good direct and aoe damage spells in a cheap cost too. Make a deck based with new overload cards and this card has almost no downside.
Whoo boy this is a spicy one. Given the undercosted Overload spells, this has some real potential for mid- and late-game control shenanigans with a healthy enough body to be a threat on it's own. Looking forward to this bad boy.
